The crowd atmosphere in the 99 french final, although I don't altogether support the crowds reaction to Hingis (Not at all really but feel she didn't necessarily help herself). This was a crowd I defintley would have liked to have been part of.

i know it's men's but the 2001 wimbledon final between ivanisevic and rafter on "people's monday" was UNBELIEVABLE, i'd never seen centre court so loud and rowdy, the true fans actually got to be there and there were some crazy australians there too that were so fun, plus the match was unbelievably dramatic, and even though my favorite lost, how could you not be happy for goran?!
again, apologies about it being men's, but this wins hands down for me...although 03 us open semi is a great choice for women's

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

Monica Seles v Serena Williams, Canadian Open 2002 (i think) Wonderful wonderful match, watched it the other day

the break point stats said it all about both players. Serena only faced 1 or two...great service games. Monica faced LOADS, and saved LOADS, losing only 1. Crowd were so into it the way she kept fighting back in her service games!

Hantuchova v that Japanese player in Wimbledon 2003 on court 2 was great, I was there for that one.

The windy match was Dementieva/Capriati a year later. It was a great match as well.

The Jen/JHH match was electric. US Open at night is unparalled in my opinion in terms of atmosphere. With that match, the whole crowd was enthralled....they and we knew it was something special. It had everything...it was a complete match in terms of quality and drama.

Is it possible to get the Capriati/JHH match on video or DVD? I've wanted to see it again for a long time.
