To say it has been a big year in tennis would be an understatement. From Serena Williams' return to dominance to Andy Murray finally winning 'the big one' to the sheer quality and diversity of the Grand Slam finals, fans have found themselves spoiled in 2012.

Mats and other legendary tennis players have been equally blessed by the action which has unfolded before them over the last 12 months, and you can watch them share their thoughts on the big moments on the ATP side of things.

First, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal started the Grand Slam calendar with a bang at the Rod Laver Arena, and former Australian Open finalist Pat Cash spoke to Mats about the gripping final:

Rafa got his revenge in more comfortable surroundings a few months later at Roland Garros, taking his record seventh French Open men's singles title:

Just a few weeks later, Roger Federer hushed those taking odds on when the Swiss ace would retire by adding to Andy Murray's wait for a first Grand Slam at Wimbledon. John McEnroe - who knows a thing or two about the London event after winning it three times in four years back in the 80s - believes there is still more to come from Fed:

Murray returned the favour in the English capital as he became one of Team GB's golden generation, dismantling Federer to win men's singles gold at the Olympics before finally clinching that maiden Grand Slam at the US Open. Tim Henman looks back with Mats at a seminal few months for the Scotsman:

And finally, what would a look back at the 2012 ATP Tour be without the 'Djoker'?

Djokovic provided many funny moments on and off the court, and here Mats Point brings you a compilation of the very best:
