Re: H Hardenne/Mauresmo, a great rivalry in the making
you aren't getting hehuge rivals aganst ach ther every week anymore -
but considering today's biggest quantity rivalaries, it's already fairly behind.
the fact that they didn't meet in 2000/1/2 means they aren't going to get to the belguim rivalary or the williams one, but of 11 matches - 10 have been with both top10 players, 6 as top5 and 4 as top3.
that means that they met alot on top form, as opposed to others.
I'm guessing the top rivalaries at the moment would be Davenport/Hingis, because of the 11 consecutive matches as the world top2 ranked players, and the 16 consecutive meetings at finals (!!!)
the sisters met less than 20 times, so they rate only a bit higher than momo/juju, but they have that slam meeting bonus (9/14 were at slams!) the hingis/venus one was good because no one ever dominated - in fact, since venus first win over swiss miss, none of them won 3 tour victories in a row prior this year, and in this case hingis sought revenge very soon afterwards - rome.
hingis/serena one wasn't much.
the belguim one is nice - but alot of the matches were bad (11 of 22 were straight setters, only one had a really tight outcome - the berlin open clash in 03)
the kim/momo one is too streaky (7 fir kim in a row, now 4 for momo consecutivly)
that's just some though.
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.
