The top ten matches are based on a variety of criteria.

The list only includes matches in the Open era.

All matches are finals unless otherwise noted.

Most matches are between top players who won several Grand Slam titles. Quite a few are matchups of French Open champions. Many are back-and-forth battles that came down to the last set.

Some matches are listed because of their historical or social significance. Think first-ever, youngest-ever, the beginning of an era, or the crowning achievement of a career.

There are plenty of great rivalries including Evert-Navratilova, Federer-Nadal, the Williams sisters and Wilander-Lendl.

With the men's best-of-five-sets format, there is more room for dramatic comebacks than in women's tennis which uses a best-of-three-sets format. Therefore, there are more men's matches in the Top 10.

So without further ado, here are my top picks.
