What is the best rivalry in the last years??
My vote goes to the Hingis-Venus rivalry, almost all 3-set matches and the highest quality matches!!! I also loved the Davenport-Hingis rivalry..

jennifer-serena

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Serena vs. Capriati, and Venus vs. Lindsay. Martina vs. Venus was good back in the day also.

Martina Venus is very exciting indeed. But there are lopsided matches between them before.

My vote goes to Serena-Capriati. Coz I cannot recall a single match in which us tennis fans are dissappointed, it is always fill with drama, although Jen seems to win all the first few and Serena all of the latter, evenytime tha player has to play their top game to win, whether it is on grass, clay or hardcourt

Hingis-Venus. Serena-Capriati are right up there too. Do you realize that Serena singlehandedly took away #1 from Jen?? It's like she was stalking her Well she did the same to her sis but I don't think it was as bad.

Intense rivalry is a "must" ingredient to have in today's game if it is to maintain the interest of any tennis fan. With the exception of Justine and Jennifer's classic at last year's U.S. Open, I'd have to say Venus/Martina matches usually did have that special "ingredient" that heightened everybody's interest!! To keep pace with the parity of the men's game (competitive wise) rivalries have to be there to increase popularity in the sport..ig. Lindsay Davenport's "served on a platter" recent title in Tokyo. Get all these injuried players back..draw the lines....and "duke" it out!!
