Was this the most epic match in history?



The drama of this match is incomparable: The late night, the crowd, the grunting, the comeback of an underdog, the fight of a champion and the final ankle turn that left us all to tears

This match has to be the most epic match from the past 10 years. (bar lin vs vee wimby)

TF is getting it's very own generation suck. Posters who have watched youtube match highlights over watching actual matches.

Re: Was this the most epic match in history?

Ummm first of all, Henin vs. Capriati US Open 2003 was the best match of the last decade. Second, you are as delusional as your fave

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Not the most epic, but certainly a lot more absorbing than any matches we get, especially outside of Slams, these days.

Then you would know this is not the most epic match in history, not even close. Even more so because it ends in a retirement. So buckle in, you're going to be ridiculed by many in this thread.

what I remember from this match was that while Tatiana was in pain Maria S was checking her strings at the back of the court. the match had drama, but wasn't epic.

Re: Was this the most epic match in history?

in the past ten years, then I would say the 2002 AO final or 2003 USO SF.

PS. how come you said in the past ten years in the OP but put 'in history' in the thread title?

Re: Was this the most epic match in history?

Tons of noise really. Golovin playing one of the better matches of her career and then suffering one of her worst injuries in her career. Cruel irony.

I don't know how this qualifies as some kind of GOAT match, but it's fabulous to see how enthralled and committed the crowd was. That kind of theatre is pretty much extinct on the WTA these days, and the crowds are almost always comatose.

Vintage Fierce Masha.

I actually think Venus v Davenport Wimbledon 2005 would be up there.
