1999 Wimbledon:
Venus vs. Steffi Graff.

Venus played some of her best tennis, but lost I believe follwing a rain delay when the momentun changed in Steffi's favor

Kim Clijsters def. Elena Dementieva 5-7 6-1 6-2 in Antwerp. Brilliant match by both players in all three sets, even if the last two don't really say that on Elena's favor.

Stanford 2004 final: Lindsay Davenport d. Venus Williams 7-6(4), 5-7, 7-6(4). Until the '05 Wimbledon final, that was the best women's tennis match I had ever seen.

Probably Masha v Serena at the AO 2005 that was an awesome and dramatic match with great intensity and ruthless hitting

Re: What Is The Best Match Your Favorite Played But Lost?

i don't know, i don't think hingis played particularly well in many of her losses

although she played excellent in the infamous slam final losses to capriati and graf... but only for two sets.

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

Probably Venus def. Lindsay 4-6 7-6 9-7 Wimby Final '05.. the USO '01 QF loss vs. Serena was also excellent from Lindsay, too.

Ditto, everytime I watch this match, I feel like Sharapova is going to win, but somehow Serena gets it back.

Here is a farwell thread Daventport I started but did not get many Davenport fans there.
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.p...light=Farewell

Can any Davenport fan upload Venus vs. Davenport at Stanford 2004 final?

I have heard so much about this match, I'd like to see it.
