2001 AO was a great, great tournament. 1999 US Open was a great event as well.
How about 1999 Australian Open:
Hingis-Mauresmo, Hingis-Seles, Pierce-Hingis, Seles-Graf, Graf-Mary Joe Fernandez, Venus-Davenport, Serena-Testud, Van Roost-Mauresmo, Davenport-Mauresmo, Pierce-Kournikova, Seles-Applemans, Seles-Testud, Schett-Sanchez Vicario, Schett-Graf, Hingis-Dokic, Hingis-Dementieva, Hingis-Coetzer.
There were so many great players in the draw and it was so deep that Graf-Seles was a QF, Graf was scheduled to play Aranxta in the 4th Round.
Hingis had to defeat Dementieva, Coetzer, Dokic, Pierce, Seles and Mauresmo to win the title. Serena lost 9-7 in the final set in the third round to Sandrine Testud, who would then go on to lose to Monica Seles 6-0, 6-3. Seles struggled to beat Applemans 6-3, 3-6, 6-4. Venus survived a fright in her opening match against Silvia Talaja, winning 9-7 in the fifth but came unbeaded in a controversial 6-4, 6-0 loss to Lindsay Davenport in the quarterfinals. Novotna, Schnyder and Martinez were all early round casualties. There was Mauresmo's coming out, the "half-a-man" controversy Lindsay and Martina were caught up in. Kournikova's doublefaults plagued her and Venus' suffering from a point penalty because of her beads caused her to lose her composure and her focus. And ofcourse, there was Monica's 33-0 win-loss record in Melbourne before losing to Martina.
Players in the draw: Martina H, Lindsay, Venus, Serena, Steffi, Monica, Aranxta, Jana, Conchita, Mary, Babsi, Kournikova, Patty, Amelie, Dominique, Elena D, Dokic, Coetzer, Testud amongst others.
