Best match of 2004?
« on: December 12, 2004, 09:39:02 AM »
Well, 2004 is basically over and I know we are all waiting to see many things in 2005 which is right around the corner especially with the AO coming up.

What was the best match in 2004 for the ATP and WTA in terms of quality?

ATP:  I have a tie because there was 2 superb matches that I really enjoyed watching:

Fed defeats Roddick at Wimbledon.  Both players played great tennis.  Roddick played the best tennis he had probably ever played and it was not enough.

Safin defeats Agassi at the AO (semis?)  Both players smacked the cover off of those balls.  Great match!

WTA:  I do not watch as many of the womens matches as the mens.  But I will have to go with...  Crap, I need to think about this one for a while.  I want to pick a match where both players played well and had a close match...  What am I forgetting here?
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Federer beating Roddick @ Wimbledon, I do not think Roddick could have played any better, but Federer just weathered the storm!!!. That's what makes him such a special player!!!

I second hummer23, watched some of that on tv.  High quality tennis, even after 4+ hours.  Great drama, just a great match to watch.
