    Best Matches of Tennis Community Contest

    Hi all.

    An idea floating around to pass the non-tennis time is to have a community poll "contest" of sorts. One idea was the to establish a bracket of best ATP and best WTA matches. A few other ideas around this as well. Details to follow.

    So to start things off we need to crowd-source a few matches to populate our contest brackets.

    So please chime in with some of your picks for best ATP or best WTA matches. No limits (time or otherwise).

    Thanks!

    Coming up with WTA matches is going to pose a few issues for some since the WTA has made changes in the last year that make the website suck even more than it already did. For instance, you can't view all the matches played for one tournament anymore.

    I can come up with more. But here are a few, most that might get overlooked but deserve to be a part of the convo to me -


    2005 Aussie Open SF - Safin vs. Federer
    2002 US Open Final - Sampras vs. Agassi
    2014 Wimbledon 3rd Round - Kvitova vs. Venus
    2007 Wimbledon QF - Roddick vs. Gasquet
    2009 French Open QF - Serena vs. Kuznetsova
    2005 Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai - Nalbandian vs. Federer


    Honorable mention for 2011 Aussie Open 4th Round - Schiavone vs. Kuznetsova
    Honorable mention for 2004 Tennis Masters Cup in Houston - Federer vs. Safin

    Heh...should we include some Isner matches with no breaks of service in them too?

    Say what you will of Isner/Mahut, but it did catch a lot of non-tennis attention and is a remarkable statistic (for maybe the wrong reasons).
