All-time great matches with lots of 'winners' from both ??

I am fairly new to tennis ... have become crazed fan since mid 2003. Can anyone provide some prime examples of high quality matches over the years where both players had a high winners-to-unforced errors percentage? I love watching awesome serves and lots of winners from both 'wings' :-). Anyone? Thank you!

I think there were more errors than winners in the 2004 US OPEN QUARTERFINAL - CAPRIATI vs S.WILLIAMS but there are still loads of winners and is very high quality and very entertaining and also controversial!!! One of my favorites of all time, a 3-set nail-biter!

flyguydsj ... it's amazing that you typed that match because I actually thought of that particular match!!! However, while there were amazing rallies, and amazing drama ... they actually didn't have an abundance of winners ... especially Capriati.

No they did not hit tons of winners, but they still brought out the best in eachother!

Capriati doing what she does best - hitting the ball hard, staying in the point, slicing it, fighting hard, defending relentlessly, then drawing the error.

Serena doing what she does best - intimidating, hitting winners, firing aces, overpowering her opponent.

I agree there were a lot of errors but I still think the quality was high. Although the umpiring was shameful to say the least, it was a fantastic match!

well I think Venus vs Davy 05 wimby final must have a lottt of winners than UEs.... This sort of match has to be one on grass where theres more chance of hitting clean winners...

Martina Hingis Ana Ivanovic Myskina Safarova

if you admit there were not a lot of winners, why even mention that quarterfinal match?

anyway, if you want a capriati us open match with tons of winners, you must see the '03 semifinals between her and henin-hardenne. probably the highest quality match, um... ever.

hingis/seles chase championships '00, fantastic, exciting match with winners everywhere.

Another match that's absolutlely unbelieveable is the AO 2001 QF between Hingis and Serena.
