What would make the most intriguing Wimbledon final?

Like RG, Wimbledon is looking to be relatively wide open since so many top players are not in form or injured.

Assuming those currently entered play, what matchup in the final will redeem women's finals for 2006? say, why?

Well Vee against Sharapova, Henin or Hingis would be great for tennis maybe Vee against Mauresmo would be intriguing maybe Vee against Davenport against or my personal fave Vee against lena D

Grassonkova.

uhmm... RG was quite good - the better players reached the latter stages - and the final featured two of the top3 best clay courters out there at the moment.
only Petrova failed to lift up the tourny - and schnyder+ schiavone were a bit unlucky.

as for this slam - I'd say Mauresmo against any of the big hitting babes.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

LOL, why didn't you just put "Venus vs. Anyone" while you were at it!

Anyways, Venus vs. Lindsay for me.

I'm biased, I'll admit it. But she is the defending champ and so the anticipation of someone taking her out would be the ideal buzz for the final.

Anyway, though I voted for Venus vs. Maria, I'd love a rematch of the final too. Unfortunately, it would only be great if both can play their best and Linds is coming off a long injury layoff, so. . ?

I'd be happy to see Venus in the final and winning but I'm voting for Mauresmo - Henin.

Played to completion of course this time.
