Ranking the 10 Greatest Finals in US Open History

Both the men's and women's finals of the 2012 U.S. Open were thrilling matches that went the distance. But were they good enough to rank among the greatest finals in U.S. Open history?

Because we are considering only U.S. Open finals, matches before the Open Era began are not included. Fred Perry's 2-6, 6-2, 8-6, 1-6, 10-8 victory over Don Budge in 1936 and Margaret Osborne duPont's 4-6, 6-4, 15-13 win over Louise Brough in 1948 would have made the list if all U.S. title matches were considered.

In determining our rankings, we considered the drama of the match, the star power of the participants and the significance of the contest.

Here is our countdown of the 10 greatest U.S. Open finals.
