Loved that comeback from Federer. Amazing fourth set. Shame about Sam's run ending short, though I didn't think many believed he could go all the way.

Problem with Querrey is he was just playing vs a better server who could go for broke on the return. Did well to get back into it, Raonic's serve was looking frighteningly like Sampras for a long time. 

 

Federer's match was brilliant. Cilic played like a god for most of it, and it's incredible he found a way to come through.

I know we don't really post on this anymore, but this has to be said. 

 

AUS Open 2017 one of the best Slams ever. 

 

First NADAL FEDERER final since 2011 :)

The quality of tennis has noticeably dropped, even if the matches are tight and well fought.  Nadal's forehands looks awful, his backhands are close to as good, but he's basically just getting by on running, shot placement and.not making any sort of error ever.

 

Feels like the last hurrah, there's only so much EPO and HGH can do to keep Fed/Nadal going, even Djokovic has dropped off.

I'll be honest I was cheering for Rafa to break back in the last game and turn the hype up to 11.  But still good match.

 

 

Probably not an all time great match in terms of the on court tennis like the 2012 Australian Open, or the 2013 Wimbledon, but still good just because it's those two.

2012 was pretty good though a bit hampered by Nadal and Djokovic taking well over the allowed 20 seconds per point. If they actually stuck to that, the match would have been considerably shorter. In terms of drama and fight it was exceptional though. This final at least was much better then the past few.

This. I'd been waiting for this for a long time.

 

Though gotta hand it to Nadal. The guy's a beast.

Was a great match. Never expected Federer to pull it back from 3-1 down in the 5th.

Fed really is a joy to watch. Even at 35, he's able to pull some really top level shots and make it look effortless.

The 35 part isn't really believable physically, there must be PEDs involved, but it's a massive achievement regardless.

Do you just believe that when anybody "old" does well? xD Sorry, I just don't buy it.

I wouldn't discount it, but I'd be surprised.

 

He's been drug tested infrequently in the past, and he's close to retirement.

 

It's not like his power/speed in the finals was anything exceptional (in fact it was mediocre); it was all about placement.
