What was your favourite Grand Slam Final from the 1990s?

For me, it was the Novotna-Graf Wimbledon Final in 1993. It was filled with so many highs and lows. There were also a few classic Seles-Graf Finals of course, but that one sticks out in my head

Well, I've only been a tennis fan since Wimbledon 2000. The best for me was '01 French Open Final. Capriti and Clijsters, 12-10 in the third. So much drama...I thought Kim was gonna win for a second.

My favourite is wimbledon 92 and W 91 is a close second

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Just about makes it, when Gaby won the US.Open in 1990!

I also enjoyed the Wimbledon final in 1991 when Gaby played Steffi, but not the result! Oh no! Once anyone mentions this match I can see Gaby missing that backhand volley.

Wimbledon 1995 - Graf d. Sanchez-Vicario

It was such high quality tennis. Haven't seen a slam final like it in a while...

For quality, Graf def. Sánchez-Vicario Wimbledon '95.
For emotion and expectation, Novotna def. Tauziat, Wimbledon '98.
For sheer drama, Graf def. Hingis, Roland Garros '99 and Graf def. Novotna, Wimbledon '93.
