Who can forget that final??

Known as a claycourter, down a set and a break and being thrashed 2 and 1 weeks earlier..Arantxa overcame all that..playing such wonderful tennis probably the most aggressive I have ever seen (besides that 95 Wimbledon final)..I mean that backhand down the line was the best of the business at the time and her gets..absolutely amazing.
