The wins that made you happy!!!

I was reading a thread about heartbreaking losses...well what wins by a player have made you SOOOO happy???

Some of mine:

Venus d. Martina 200 Wimby QF 6-3 4-6 6-4
At that time Venus had never beaten Martina in a GS, and of course she'd never won a slam yet. i think that win started the ball rolling to that amazing summer she had, when she won 36(?) straight matches, and of course took her first GS at Wimbledon along the way. I was at the match, and it was breathtaking.

Venus d. Martina USO SF 4-6 6-3 7-5.
Just amazing quality and drama. I thought Venus was out of it but she came back!!

Shinobu d. Dani Wimby 2nd round 2003 0-6 6-4 12-10
Again i was there and it was so exciting to watch, Shino came back many tiems during that match, nd of coruse there was the drama with Dani crying and all the problems she was going through at that time. It was Shinobu's first big win!!

Others:

Serena d. Masha OZ 2005
Chanda d. Serena to win LA, 2003
Monica d. Martina RG 1998 SF
Majoli d. Martina RG 1997

Venus Kvitova Halep
Kontaveit Rybarikova

Venus defeats Martina Hingis, quarter finals Wimbledon 2000. I watched that match, and I had tears in my eyes. As Lindsay said in an interview at that tournament, Venus had never beaten anyone at a slam!

Beating Lindsay became anti-climatic for me!

Take care of your character. Reputation will sort itself.

Most wins of Kim make me happy, but the following made me so I happy I couldn't think of anything else the next few days :

Kim finally beating Lindsay in the Stanford final 2001

Kim beating Venus in Hamburg 2002 after losing the first set 6-1

Kim beating Serena in the Masters final 2002

Kim beating Lindsay in Indian Wells 2005

Kim beating Maria in Miami 2005 and achieving the American double after being seriously injured for about a year

Some Justine wins that made my day:

Justine beating Jennifer in the Wimbledon semis 2001

Justine beating Serena in the RG semis 2003

Don't get me started on Andre's matches

Lena D's HK Exhibition....she beat both Sharapova and the Queen and then Venus and Serena in doubles - I wish it wasn't just an exhibition, but it shows the depth of her talent

but other than that...Clijsters' amazing comeback, Serena's U.S. Open Victory in 1999 (i remember watching that) and Venus's Wimbledon run in 2000

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

Steffi Graf def Martina Hingis in French open 1999.

Retrospectively I feel differently because I kind of like Martina now but at the time it was fun .

I would say Lena over Jennifer at the USO.
That guaranteed a second all-Russian slam final in 2004, and three straight majors won by three different Russians.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I agree, Kart, Graf def Hingis 1999 was very very satisfying for me.

Other mentionable matches are:

Graf def Seles 1992 Wimbledon Final
Graf def Navrativolva 1986 Berlin Final
