What is your all-time favorite match?

Tell us which is your all-time favorite match! Not necessary high quality, but a match that you really enjoy to watch over and over again!!

Me it's the 2001 Australian Open quarterfinal, Hingis VS Serena. Simply too good !

I guess winning 90% of points from your opponents errors is "schooling"

USO 2000 Semi Venus vs. Hingis -- I never get tired of watching that match!!

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

1985 French Open Final....Evert-Lloyd d. Navratilova 6-3, 6-7, 7-5.

Still the best women's match of all time...really! Evert-Lloyd was down 0-40 deep in the third set (4-5?), and she came to the net to make it to deuce. I remember Chris not even looking at Navratilova because Martina, being her usualy bitchy self , was being extremely animated. Simply awesome, Chrissie!!!!!

I'm having a tough time deciding between these:

Seles Def. V. Williams 2002 QF AO
Capriati Def. Hingis 2002 F AO
Graf Def. V. Williams 1999 QF Wimby
Dementieva Def. V. Williams 2004 QF Nasdaq
Henin-Hardenne Def. S. Williams 2003 RG Semis

I think I liked Monica's win the best though

Definitely, this is the best match ever.....

S. Williams d. A. Mauresmo - French Open QF 2003

A top player should never be schooled in such a way. Mauresmo just proved how inferior she was that day.

V. Williams d. J. Henin-Hardenne - Amelia Island F 2002

The reason why Justine is terrified of Venus to this day!!!
