10 greatest Tennis matches ever

Ranking the 10 Most Epic

Agassi had played another late-night classic against James Blake the year before. That match was later in the tournament (QF), featured Agassi coming back from two sets down rather than almost blowing a two-set lead and was against a fellow American. So why is the Baghdatis match rank higher? My main memory of the Blake match is that Blake kind of collapsed (though he really didn’t), especially when he had a chance to serve it out at 5-4 in the fifth. The Baghdatis match was a pound-for-pound brawl and was forever immortalized in Agassi’s brilliant autobiography. In the start of Open Agassi describes being in the training room after his late-night, cramp-filled, back-pain-inducing epic with the young Cypriot:

“In my peripheral vision I detect slight movement. I turn to see Baghdatis extending his hand. Has face says We did that. I reach out, take his hand, and we remain this way, holding hands, as the TV flicker scenes of our savage battle.

8. Michael Chang d. Ivan Lendl, 4–6, 4–6, 6–3, 6–3, 6–3, 1989 French Open fourth round

It was going to be Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras or Jim Courier who was going to be the first young American to break through and win a Slam in the post McEnroe/Connors era. Then comes the 17-year-old Chang, storming back from two sets against three-time French Open champ and world No. 1 Ivan Lendl. The comeback included an underhand serve and cramps that caused Chang to return serves from inside the baseline, flustering the old pro, Lendl.

Chang still had three more matches to go after winning his fourth-rounder, two against equal opponents (No. 30 Ronald Agenor and No. 27 Andrei Chesnokon), but had to face another titan in the final, in No. 3 Stefan Edberg. No “gotcha” tactics were needed this time as Chang won in four.
