Best Quality Match of 2011? Most Dramatic Match of 2011?

Haven't seen this thread up yet...

What was the best high quality tennis match of the year (meaning both players, not just one)?

What was the most dramatic match of the year (This doesn't include a shocking win or anything or the sort. I'm talking some real diva shit consistently through the match.)

You can list a few or just one.

I haven't watched much tennis this year but Petko vs. Aga was pretty good quality. I now there was a few during the Australian/spring season as well.

JaJa and Fran at Cincy was some PEAK stuff in the drama department. Idk what cold top that.

List and Discuss

I was waiting for that. I haven't seen it personally but I heard that the last set is the only thing that is really high quality.

Of course not top quality, but Wickmayer-Morita at RG was much better than you'd expect it to be Looong rallies with plenty of winners from both.

OMG yes! I actually saw this match! It was pretty good and a tight score as well. I really wanted Ayumi to win

Re: Best Quality Match of 2011? Most Dramatic Match of 2011?

The two things that really resonate with me from 2011 were the first few days of Wimbledon and Stosur at the US Open.

There were some great Centre Court matches early on at SW19. Date Krumm - Venus, Dokic - Schiavone and also some Lisicki match. For a few days there the WTA really out performed the ATP, and on the sports biggest stage to boot!

Stosur's matches against Petrova, Kirilenko and Serena were all phenomenal. She was really the star of the tournament.

EDIT: Of course the Beijing F between Radwanska and Petkovic was match of the year IMO, how could I forget
