Best Matches from Each Major this Year (2006)

Hi, I'm thinking of ordering some tennis DVDs and I want to get the best match from each major this year. What do you guys think? I guess you could include the YEC too (although I'm fairly sure I'll go with either Mauresmo-Clijsters or Petrova-Hingis).

Re: Best Matches from Each Major this Year (2006)

I didn't watch anything from the Australian this year.

I quite enjoyed Severine Bremond's wins over Schnyder, Dulko, and to a lesser extent Sugiyama. (I <3 me some Sugiyama, so that was hard to digest.) Of course all of that was at Wimbledon. Sugiyama's win over Hingis was GREAT. That was a stunning match. Ummm. Pennetta and Sharapova was good. Errrr. I wasn't really that hot on any of the quarterfinals on up aside from the final.

French Open...I mostly watched the men this year. I actually didn't watch ANY female match at RG this year. Weird.

US Open? Razzano beating Hingis was a highlight. Probably my favorite match the entire two weeks. Ummmm. I dunno, nothing at the US Open really struck me this year. It was boring.

Stick with Wimbledon.

Sharapova vs Henin-Hardenne was very high quality.

The Sharapova Washington FO first round was pretty darn good.

Re: Best Matches from Each Major this Year (2006)

AO - SF - Sharapova vs Henin
FO - Either... 1R - Sharapova vs Washington, or SF - Nicky vs Kuznetsova
W - 4R - Sharapova vs Pennetta
USO - I can't remember if it was the 1R or 2R, but Kuznetsova vs Kostanic was quite good Masha's SF and F were also great matches

Maria Sharapova
Career Slam Winner

W'04, US'06, AO'08, RG'12

I thought Lindsay beat Kostanic 6-0, 6-0 at US Open...

I hope you're kidding, it was such a bad played match by Hingis. Horrible performance, really
