Most Missed Rivalry?

It seems like there are hardly enough players right now to have any type of rivalry on the tour...(the thing I think the tour most needs). Which of the most recent (and still possible to be revived) rivalries do you want to see most renewed, or continued?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

For me it was Venus-Hingis ... but now it's Venus-Capriati. Or Seles-Capriati. Seles & Capriati vs. anyone.

i really only want to see Venus and Serena play each other is GS finals or semis though...it just doesnt seem worth enough for them if its before that.

I really miss Serena and Maria. You could tell in their last match that both of them knew what to expect and both of them DID NOT WANT TO LOSE! And really Maria didn't, Serena won. That's what made that match so promising! I hope they can continue to have high drama matches like that...with NO controversy (JEN, you KNEW that ball was in!)

Did not see Serena-Jennifer listed, which is one of the most compelling of this generation.
