Most Memorable Moments of 2016

Post by noleisthebest on Tue Nov 29, 2016 3:02 pm

2016 is now officialy over.

It has been a strange year in many ways:

*Federer ended as number 16
*Nadal and Federer didn't play at the WTF (and neither did Berdych and Ferrer!)
*Nole finally win RG and held all  4 slams! (and lost more or less everything after that)
*Murray overtook Nole and become new number one...

Here are some of my most memorable moments, please add yours!



Nole cries: (ENIGMA)

Delpo jumps into crowd: (JOY!)

Pouile beats Nadal at USO: (SUPER THRILL)

2016 had some highs. Depends where you look. Personally for me these were my highs:

Andy Murray climbing to the top of the summit - I know he doesn't have many fans on here, but purely from a partisan perspective for me it was great to see a British player on top. For me the UK has underperformed in sport development in general. There are many contributing factors, but what is of no surprise is that Murray's final stages in development happened outside the UK. For budding athletes for the future this might be the model they follow.

The young guns start breaking out - 17/18 used to be young in tennis terms and was considered the starting point that we expected to see the new breed come through. However now 21 is the new 18 in tennis. Seeing Thiem, Pouille and Edmond have some breakout results certainly does serve a stark reminder that we could be on the cusp of a turning point in the sport. 2017 will be interesting for these guys. They need to follow up with an even stronger showing.

The redemption of Del Potro - What a storied comeback it has been for the Argentine. I think it was felt he was another Soderling and a retirement in waiting. When you think of second winds similar to Hewitt, Haas and Ferrero from years ago, I thought those fleeting moments were a thing of the past. However Del Potro made a splash at the Olympics which put him in good stead for the rest of the year. Dazzling run at the US Open followed by Davis Cup heroics. It's a shame he isn't competing at the AO in 2017, but I hope the extended rest will benefit him in the long run.

Novak Djokovic achieves the CGS - The FO seemed to elude Djokovic like it has previously Federer. However, in Djokovic's case he had the upper hand in his rivalry with Nadal in recent times and also was the dominant player of the last 2 years. 2015 saw Djokovic fall to another Stanominal performance at the FO. This year he saw Murray in the final who he had dispatched at the AO previously. However, Murray was showing an upturn in fortunes on the dirt. Djokovic triumphed and saw him position himself alongside other greats who achieved the same feat. Sadly the remainder of 2016 saw Djokovic fall off his throne almost Hamlet style.

Kerber - 2015 Angelique Kerber didn't even make the 4th round of a Slam. Finished 10th in the world. What a difference 12 months makes. Beat Williams in the AO final, finished runner up at Wimbledon and then won the US Open. Silver medal at the Olympics and made it to World No.1. Fantastic year for the German.

Memorable mention
Dr Ivo turns back time - Can anyone remember Ivo's highest ranking? Well it was 14 in 2008 when he had just clocked 30. Ivo finished 2016 ranked 20 in the world. An astonishing feat for a 37 year old who by many is deemed one dimensional.
