It certainly is the most anticipated of the tournament. I think a couple at Wimbledon and the Serena/Maria Australian Open match were highly anticipated.

Whitney Houston and her receipts:

I think that a rematch of the 2005 Wimbledon final and a rematch of the 2005 Wimbledon semifinal would be the most anticipated. It sure is a possibility.

It's between this match and Serena vs. Sharapova. The latter didn't disappoint, but I hope Venus wins easily against Kim to make this one a sleeper. It's Venus and Kim's rubber match for this year both of them having defeated the other once this year.

I'm pretty sure that Maria versus Venus was the most anticipated match of the year. I don't know why, maybe it has to do with the fact that it was the former queen of Wimbledon against the newly crowned princess or just the fact that they have such flashy games. Everyone was talking about it, all the sportscenters and little thirty minute sports shows. It definitely lived up to it's hype though, with the former queen re-taking her spot at the throne in a thrilling high quality match.

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

'Most anticipated match of the year' means casual fans are into it. None of the casual fans I know are anticipating ANY of the possible matchups at the US OPen this year. They're more into individual players..

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

No, I'd say Serena v Sharapova was.

After that was probably Venus v Sharapova.
