I know the tennis year is by no means over!
But I thought it might be fun to look back now that the year’s Slams have been completed.
What was your favorite match and why?
If your favorite isn’t here, which one did we miss?

    LOL M! You’ve set us a real task here 😈 The ones you mention are great. I may have to get back on this, in the meantime:

    Cilic-Roddick AO: Qtrs

    • M said

      Aha! I *knew* I’d leave out at least one great one!

      (I also figured I could rely on you to remember which it might be, Jenny! 😛 )

    LOL, TP – thank you for that emblematic banner photo for this post! 😀

    Is it normal that I have a blackout from this year’s Grand Slams matches?
    Maybe Fed-Djoko at the USO because it was not too long ago, but other than that, can’t remember much.

    Isner-Mahut, one for the history books.

    No contest — Federer-Djokovic US Open

    Last year it was Nadal-Djokovic – Madrid – Where they wore each other out to the point that Federer beat Nadal the next day on clay (impossible without Djokovic’s softening him up). Nadal then went on to lose the French and drop out of Wimbledom.

    The year before — Nadal-Djokovic – Queens (not a slam I know) but one of the best matches I’ve ever seen.

    Somewhere in there – probably tied – is Roddick and Federer at Wimbledon.

      ———————————————
      Wasn’t that the year [2009] Nadal had that chronic, painful tendinitis going on and the year he withdrew from Queens too? No way could he compete with that going on with his knees, I’m surprised he was able to play at all.. It was also the year Soderling [sorry, but I’m still not convinced he would have beaten a fit Gonzalez on clay, we now know he clearly wasn’t fully fit] swept the board at the French to meet Fed in the final.

        “[sorry, but I’m still not convinced he would have beaten a fit Gonzalez on clay, we now know he clearly wasn’t fully fit]”

        Agreed.

        I was *so* hoping Feña would beat him.

        (He’s Tweeted that he’s out of hospital, back at hotel, in some pain, but doing ok.)

      • Jenny said

        😆 I know they like to get them out and on the move quick, but what about all the post op physio which is normally done in hospital? Are they visting Fena’s hotel room? Some of our hospitals have re-hab, or convalescence in nearby good private hotels, could this be the case, M?

      • M said

        Yes, Jenny. HSS is one of those that has that arrangement. His physio was right there after surgery as well, so I can’t imagine he’d let him get far, lol.

        You were certainly right about him needing to get rest and follow doc’s orders … looks like the man wants to get moving ASAP. He reminds me of those types of babies who seem to want to skip all that crawling/walking stuff and go straight to running.

      • Jenny said

        Thx for clarifying M! Right now he’s relieved it’s over, bless him, but wait until the pain and stiffness kick in when he starts moving, they probably transported him in a wheelchair, next step crutches!

        😆 “He reminds me of those types of babies who seem to want to skip all that crawling/walking stuff and go straight to running”
