Just a quick thought as i was perusing tennis videos on youtube during my work breaks, a thought struck me.
Are there any really memorable and close straight set wins? Nothing, imo, leaps out at me 2bh.

I can think of a number of feds djoko ones i.e. match at aus '11 and us open 09.
There are probably some others but atm i can't think of many!

thoughts?

Nadal and Djokovic had many of those in 2008/9, incl the OG in Beijing. I hate them all with passion. Obviously, still recovering What is the best, close straight sets you have seen? 1071211947

sorry i should have been more clear.
I meant what is the best straight sets win at grand slam level that was a close match, despite it being in straight sets.

Stich v Edberg Wimby YY?? semi. 76 76 76....very unlucky from Edberg as there is an argument to say he was the better player.

Depends on what we mean by good quality...but they were the best 2 grass players of the time. The other I have in mind is Goran v Pete Wimby final one was 767660 close.

Otherwise more recently the 2009 USO semi between Federer v Djoko. Though Federer won it was a tough battle that cost him the final v Delpo.

Not straight set win but Sampras-Agassi USO 2001 (?) was 6-7,7-6,7-6,7-6 was pretty damn close and good quality... otherwise wasn't it Gulbis who beat Berdych in straight sets 7-6,7-6,7-6 at last year's Wimbers? Not sure of the quality of the match though...

Not sure it was that close though or that high of quality on Berdych's side. Here are the stats of that match:

30 Aces 13
2 Double faults 4
79 of 110 = 72 % 1st serves in 72 of 122 = 59 %
66 of 79 = 84 % 1st serve points won 61 of 72 = 85 %
19 of 31 = 61 % 2nd serve points won 24 of 50 = 48 %
133 MPH Fastest serve 134 MPH
122 MPH Average 1st serve speed 124 MPH
113 MPH Average 2nd serve speed 98 MPH
16 of 25 = 64 % Net points won 20 of 31 = 65 %
1 of 7 = 14 % Break points won 1 of 1 = 100 %
37 of 122 = 30 % Receiving points won 25 of 110 = 23 %
62 Winners 30
33 Unforced errors 27
122 Total points won 110

Was this one straight sets? The way it is in my memory (perhaps mixed up by now?), Edberg broke Stich's serve once in the whole match while he himself was never broken. I thought Edberg won the first set - maybe 7:5 or sth like that?

I thought 2007 USO final was very close and dramatic, though maybe not the best. Federer could easily have been down by two sets after the second set.

Must have been nice... Was it as close as the score indicates, or as the TBs went pretty easily for Gulbis it was just a matter of really good serving throughout (only one break each) and easy sailing for Gulbis (in Tbs hence in the match)?

Good returning from Gulbis essentially.....from what I remember. Good serving too but I think Berdych was not at his very best. Interesting. They played today and it was another tight match...going the other way this time.
