Best Doubles Matches

What are some of the best doubles matches of the last few years!?!?

I'd have to say Martina/Monica def. Venus/Serena 1st round Sydney 2001, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(2). The sisters had 4 match points. But it was an excellent match, truly exciting.

Vera/Nastya - Bartoli/Loit at the Fed Cup. A close nail-biter.

I saw that match I remember it for Lina's amazing backhand.
This years wimbledon also had VERY good match. But I have a crap memory when it comes to doubles.

Women's tennis sucks.

Hingis/Novotna def. Davenport/Zvereva in the finals of the U.S. Open in 1998, giving Hingis a calendar year grand slam in doubles. In included the single best point I ever saw in a doubles match, won by a Hingis backhand down the line.

Saw Lina and Elena beat Venus and Serena too! Lina K was the best player on court, guided by the brill Elena. At 5-5 Elena serving 15-30 down Lina hit a fabulous back-hand volley down the centre for a winner- definitely turned the match.

It was in R3, Lina and Elena going on to the semi's. They beat Vento-Kabchi and Widjaja in the QF, coming from a set down.

Black/Stubbs beat Ruano Pascual/Suarez 7-6 4-6 6-4

Great match between the serve-volleyers against the baseline-stayers Rennae was very pumped up

Myskina/Zvonareva beat Bartoli/Loit 7-6 7-5

The rallies at the net were at times superb atmosphere
