2003 Match with the BEST RALLIES

Which match of 2003 do you guys think had the best rallies?

I had just watched the 2003 RG SF between Serena and Justine. And that match really had some amazingly long and amazing rallies. When you think one person is about to win the rally, the player on the defense just hit on incredible shot with a great angle and the rally completely changes.

I think outside of that 'hand incident' this was a great match.

The USO SF had great shot-making I thought. The rallies in RG were longer (due to the surface I know) and therefore more exciting. I didn't tape that match because I'm stupid so I have no clue.

I didn't tape it either,but we tons of re-runs down here in Belgium that I didn't really need to tape it.

USO SF had by far the most exciting long rallies I've seen all year!

The passing shots, the dtL's, so many shots hit ON THE EDGE OF THE LINE, drop shots, lobs, it was ALL there! both Justine and Jennifer played an extremely high level of tennis. I really liked seeing Jennifer so pumped up!

Anything with Serena in it will not have good "rallies"
i think Justine vs Jen in the US Open SF is probably the best.

I think the Serena vs Justine match was great, great....too bad for the hand incident. It was better to me than Justine vs Jen in that BOTH players where agressive and willing to go for the kill.Jennifer wasn´t really going for the kill.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

I've watched 'em both a couple of times (burned em to DVD) and have to go with the JHH vs. Jen match, only because some of those rallies were excruiciatingly long.

I've seen the match between Jen & Justine 2 days ago, and what you said about that match is complete bullshit... The were both battling like their life depended on the result, and there were completely crazy points fom both sides!
Jen was so pumped up, she was screaming all over the match and was pushed by the crowd, she was hitting unbelievable winners, and in the rallies she reached some balls she will never ever reach again...
Actually there's a reason why this match has been elected one of the best matches of the WTA history!

The RG semi-final was great too, but I think the best one is Jen vs. Justine!
