Tremendous week for Canadian tennis regardless of the outcome today. Of course, tough for the umpire to call Rafa for going way over the allotted time between points especially in Madrid.

You have to give props to Rafa however, look at the season he had in 2019.

I think Sinner might win this one (recency bias), but Felix certainly made waves earlier in the season.

Tennis.Com is putting out a list of the 10 greatest matches of the decade. So far on the Mens side they have:

10) Federer vs Kyrgios 2017 Miami
9) Nadal vs Djokovic 2013 French Open
8)Delpo vs Cilic 2016 Davis Cup
7) Djokovic vs Nadal 2018 Wimbledon
6) Isner vs Mahut 2010 Wimbledon
5) Nadal vs Thiem 2018 US Open

Any guess what #1 will be? I'm going to say Djokovic vs Federer 2019 Wimbledon

2014 Wimbledon Final was significantly better than 2019, 2019 wasn't actually all that great it was just very dramatic, the final set especially. But the quality of that 2014 final is miles ahead. Also 2011 French Open Semis between them was much better quality too.

2017 AO Final would be #1 worst match for Nadal fans
2019 Wimbledon Final for Fed fans
What about Djoker fans?

Ya Senator your probably right, the recency bias got to me. That French Open semi has to be on the list, the finger wag seen round the world.

Surprised the 2017 AO final wasn't #1 or #2.

Shouldn't have even been on the list I objectively think the 2019 US Open Final was much better.

From a history stand point the 2017 AO final is maybe the most important match in tennis history. How would the GOAT debate look had Nadal held on and closed it out in the 5th.
