Which of the follwing is your favourite rivalry?

Right, in my introduction thread, Lovefifteeen told me to make polls, so I'll make this one. I hope it turns out by the way, as O'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly.

Re: Which of the follwing is your favourite rivalry?

These three rivalries have been the best in the last several years in my opinion, providing high quality, dramatic matches mostly every time. I'' say Serena vs Capriati, mainly for the fact that Serena is my favourite player.

Maybe Venus-Hingis, because they are in the same age and came to the same time. But the other two ones are great, too.

Re: Which of the follwing is your favourite rivalry?

Serena/Capriati

they've never met in GS finals like the other 2, but MAN they've been some of the most ELECTRIC matches I've seen....even though the last one .....

all three of them are good, but yeah, Serena's my fave too and Venus is losing in the other H2Hs so...yeah, Serena/Capritai

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

I agree, Serena and Capriati usually have met in the quater-finals of the Slams. And that's what I love about Capriati-Serena matches, neither will give in, and both get so pumped up when playing each other.

Let's hope that Capriati returns next year, so we can have more of these matches.

Serena - Capriati for sure

I'm cheering for Amélie and Shahar.

I'm surprised to see that there is not one single vote for Venus vs Lindsay

Re: Which of the follwing is your favourite rivalry?

Lindsay-Venus is my favourite out of the three. both of them just bashed that ball til the stuffing was gone from it & it was just incredible to see the two of them going for it with great precision.

Venus-Hingis was up there as well too on my list, Hingis was the one with all the finesse & Venus was the one with all the power.

Isn't it a shame to think that we may never see another Serena-Capriati, or Lindsay-Venus match again.

Serena-Capriati for sure. Venus-Hingis follows closely behind, but there was more tension when Serena and Jennifer played against each other.

Venus-Lindsay Lots of power in their matchups.

Venus-Hingis would be a close second because Martina had all the finesse and great touch while Venus was more of the player who hit for power and winners
