With the US Open tennis tournament at Flushing Meadows just around the corner, it's time to look back at some recent events that happened in New York.
I will rank every final match we have had since the turn of the century, in order from No. 11 to No. 1.
There is much criteria to asses the final:
1. The quality of the matches. For example, matches that are full of errors or big serves usual won't be at the top.
2. How competitive the matches are. Five setters with close sets will obviously be higher than three sets that are blowouts.
3. The storylines beyond the game. Rivals, change of eras or other very important subplots are also taken into account.
Looking at all these aspects, I have ranked the last 11 Open finals. Without further ado, here are the rankings.
