The hard courts of Flushing Meadows are famous for producing the greatest of matches. There have been some long matches at the Open, but not all long matches are great. The greatness of the match is defined by what is at stake. Most would argue that its just one of the four majors and while that is true, the significance of what transpires at the Big Apple is more than just that.
The US Open being the last Grand Slam of the year, has often over the years been the last chance for a few of the big players to capture their first major of the year. For others its an opportunity to wrap another year up by adding yet another major to their name. Not to forget, it has also served as a chance for a select few to complete their career Grand Slams. On top of it all, the lone victory for an 'outsider' (outside the big three) in the last 9 years has come at the US Open for Juan Martin Del Potro in 2009.
All of this has contributed to some sensational tennis. Often, the best of matches are played between two great rivals which adds to the enormity of the match or the stage of the event. Be it McEnroe-Connors, Sampras-Agassi or Federer-Djokovic, they've all played some pulsating matches here at the Arthur Ashe Stadium, the drama that accompanies these matches is also Grand Slam.
Here's a compilation of these matches, as TennisEarth dares to separate the best from the rest.
