Matches Won With An Ace!

i love it when someone serves an ace on match point (if its the one im rooting for, that is ) and it happens more than you might think. every time a player wins a match on an ace, post it in this thread kind of like the "match points" thread

i will get the ball rolling

Miami Final - Svetlana Kuznetsova def. Maria Sharapova 6-4 6-3 (with an ace on match point)

Luxembourg Round of 16 - Agnieska Radwanska def. Venus Williams 6-3 6-0 (with an ace on match point)

Zurich Final - Maria Sharapova def. Daniela Hantuchova 6-1 4-6 6-3 (with an ace on match point)


you can also post matches that you remember were won with an ace

Re: Matches Won With An Ace!

Graf did it in at least one of her Wimbledon finals - I think '95?

That ace on match point against Seles in 1992 was the best, and I never get tired of hearing her yell "Ja!" just after she clicked the ball, knowing it wasn't coming back. It was an exclamation point to a match where she kept her composure and consistency over the course of a rain-delayed final that took nearly 6 hours to complete, in near darkness- and you could just feel the satisfaction Steffi felt cracking that last serve.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Re: Matches Won With An Ace!

I remember a cool one, this year at the French. Aravene Rezai smacked a winner to set-up match point, and then hit an ace on MP during a match that was barely televised on ESPN2. The crowd roared and she was smiling and waving. She either lost the next round or the one after that. But I remember the ace and her/crowd reaction, it was awesome. Anyone remember?
