Cool First women's match you ever saw?

Mine was:

2003 French Open, 2nd round

Ashley Harkleroad def Daniela Hantuchova 7-6(2) 4-6 9-7

I'd never watched women's tennis before. I'd watched a few mens matches before, but never womens. I was never really into tennis before that match. I know everyone says that match was appauling but I really got into and really enjoyed it. I watched it with my dad from start-to-finish and flipped a coin to see who we would go for. I got Harkleroad and dad got Dani. It was a very close battle and we really got into it. Since then, I watched like ALL of Wimbledon 2003. That's when I became a Maria fan.

So yeah, that's my story.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

i don't remember, but it mst be a Roland Garros Match, probably in 99.. but not totally sure of that...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

RG 97 final
i was 11 then
only started following tennis at the end of 96, and didn't really get much coverage until i got cable in 2000, meaning i only got to watch slam finals and semis

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
