The Brightest Day in Tennis History

is the day you see the face of a child light up after you place a tennis racquet in their hand, and feed them a ball, and watch them make contact for the first time.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

tennislover, jonny84, and bandabou -- those are all great moments!

Agassi's 1999 RG and Capriati's 2001 AO/RG wins were moving, too.

to me it would be when Amelie wins her first slam.

MARIA SHARAPOVA: "Amélie, you know it doesn't really matter at this point. I mean, I'd love to, I mean, Amélie is No. 1 in the world. She's playing great tennis. You know, I love that challenge of going out there and competing against the best in the world."
You'd love to what, Maria?

When Justine won the US Open 2003 after that semifinal match against Capriati, saves 3 set points in the first set, and def. Kim Clijsters on hardcourt.

Maria's win at Wimbledon

Maybe not the brightest day in history, but my favourite moment.

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-
kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm?
