The tour right now lacks this type of excitement.

Re: Remember these matches

This one I just recently found: a clip from 1988 French Open where Steffi Graf won love-love. It may not fall into the category of an "exciting match" by virtue of the scoreboard and the the time it took to play, but (being a Graf fan, )

Re: Remember these matches

you're not watching the right matches buddy
the excitment lies evrywhere to be found in tennis. i had a terrific time at the 25Ks here, with some tight heart-attacking matches.
but obviously with Graf out - some of the most exciting points are out with her.

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.

Re: Remember these matches

Re: Remember these matches

wow at the Venus clip she seemed so pumped there, you could see the fire in her eyes I hope to see more of that from her next year.

Re: Remember these matches

those matches between legends and young champios are great to watch
sadly nowadays we don't get any of those

Steffi's movement, backhand, forehand were all tremendous
she could hit a terrific volley,a reliable serve...she just put her opponents under pressure all the time, changing directions, pace and spins

Vee and Ree back in the old days played with so much faith and commitment - that's what you'd like to watch all the time

Re: Remember these matches

Why am I not surprise at these so call hometown people cheering at every error 17 yro Venus is making and cheering for the forign player. This is the stuff that V&S has been putting up with all their tennis life. No wonder these two women go on with their lives and don't give a damn about the WTA tourn and the dilema of women's tennis today.....Hooray for V&S.
