You help please : Which tennis match should I buy ?

I already am buying Hingis def. Serena AO 2001 8-6 in the third and I can buy one more, not one too long (Not over 3 hours, I think) because I don't want to pay too much I'm a poor guy

I was thinking of buying one of the thrilling matches between Steffi and ASV. What was the best according to you guys ?

Or maybe a Capriati-Seles battle... I was also thinking of Loit-Serena (the famous one) but I remembered that Serena hit a lot of UE's during that match.
Maybe Navratilova-Evert ? I don't know I can't decide.

What I'm looking for actually, is a beautiful match with not a lot of errors... A big match where both girls are playing their best and taking it to each other.

If you can help me decide, that'd be nice

Who do you want to win the ASV v Steffi matches? If Graf, Wimbledon 95 final is the one with the long long game. If you want ASV to win there are 3-4 to choose from.

The original classic Jen V Monica from jen's first incarnation is the USO sf 91?

Yeah, Steffi vs. Arantxa (Wimbledon 1995) is definitely worth watching for that one game alone.

Its also another turning point in Steffi's career. ASV was getting competitive (like Sabatini and Novotna in 91 and 93) but Steffi moved out ahead again.

One of the best matches in recent memory is Justine d. Capriati '03 US Open SF 4-6 7-5 7-6. The score line doesn't tell the whole story. It's a 3-hour match with each set lasting 1 hour evenly. High quality tennis from beginning to the end. Actually, should the match stop at the 2nd set and Jennifer won (she was 5-3 serving for the match) it would still be a classic, because of the quality of play. It was so evenly matched that at the end each player won exactly 120 points.

Greatest Graf-ASV match was FO 96 final without a doubt. 10-8 in 3rd. ASV never was better.

Match with the best winners/UEs relation was Graf-Navratilova, Wimbledon final 88. Graf hit 79 winners and made only 34 UEs. Navi had 44 winners and 18 UEs. Unthinkable today. The greatest match ever.

Roland Garros final of 1999 when Steffi defeated in one of the best and most dramatic matches ever Martina Hingis 4:6, 7:5, 6:2. Hingis served for the match being 5:4 and 15:0 up, but Graf broke her game and then the match turned

I recommend 1985 RG final - Evert def. Navratilova.

This is at the peak of the best rivalry in women's tennis.
