the best match your fav ever played

What's the best match your fav has ever played???

*Dominique Van Roost; Her match against Lindsay in the first round at RG in 2000 (?) was great, especially because of all the emotions surrounding it Maybe the same match 3 weeks later at Eastbourne was even better

*Kim Clijsters; The match against Lindsay Davenport (again ) last year in the final of Stanford! I was so proud she won!

-LindsAy (@Arne) Davenport winning the final against Steffi Graf, wimbledon 1999. She was the underdog, but showed what a great tennisplayer she was (and still is!)

Kim Clijsters:
def Davenport-Stanford final

def Henin-RG SF and AO QF
def Hingis-IW SF
lost to Capriati-RG Final, I know she lost but that match was probably the best of 2001 not just 'cos of the final set scoreline but also because of the emotion, tension and quality of tennis.

Back after a veeery long absence.

1. Evonne Goolagong defeating Chris Evert (then Lloyd) 6-1, 7-6 in the 1980 Wimbledon finals. She also beat world #1 Tracy Austin in 3 sets in the semi's.

2. Goolagong over Evert (not yet Lloyd) in the Virginia Slims Championships finals in LA in 1976 in 3 sets.

3. Hana Mandlikova defeating Martina Navratilova in the US Open finals in 1985 in sets, as well as Chris Evert (back to Lloyd) in a 3 set semifinal.

4. Jennifer Capriati's Aussie wins over Hingis 2001-2002.

5. Capriati's French Open thriller over Clijsters 2001.

6. Gabriela Sabatini charging the net and beating Steffi Graf in straights in the 1990 US open final.

7. Steffi Graf over Hingis in Paris 1999.

8. Mary Pierce nailing Graf in Paris 1994.

9. Pierce d. Hingis in Paris semis 2000. I saw this one in person and it rocked!

10. Sabatini over Graf in successive Lipton semi's 1991-1992. They were rollercoaster ride matches with momentumn swings and nearly had identical scores.

I have no idea what the best match was Steffi ever played(on quality) to many, mentally I think all her wimbledon wins are in the list

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

Well, Monica has beaten a lot of top players 6-1 6-0 or 6-0 6-1, including Hana Mandlikova.

I would say her best match though would have to be the 1990 German Open Final. Steffi was just a few weeks short of her 21st birthday, on a 66 match winning streak, and was 111-2 since the beginning of 1989. The losses were 3 setters against Gaby and Arantxa.

Anyhow, stepping into this with a lifetime 0-3 against Steffi, a 16 year old Monica dispatched Steffi in routine fashion, 6-4 6-3. A couple weeks later, she did it again.
