What match was the best your fave has ever played?

For Maria, I would have to say vs Justine Henin in the USO Final, or vs Venus in the semis of Miami 05.

Re: What match was the best your fave has ever played?

Best play (quality of the game) or best result you mean?

If it comes to the quality

Aga Radwanska - Klara Koukalova in Warsaw (Aga played sooooo good!!!)
Marta Domachowska - Ana Smashnova in Sopot (Marta best match ever )

Agnieszka Radwanska top 3 player

Hard to say for Venus, vs Maria in Wimbledon '05 and the two wins against Graf in '99 were totally awesome...

Quality of game. So it may be against a really easy opponent but I'm looking for the best match they played in terms of good tennis.

Re: What match was the best your fave has ever played?

The best match I seen Lindsay play was the 99 Wimby final. She was so so good that day against a very determined Steffi.

She had 2 BP's and converted both, and faced 2 BP's saving both.

For someone who was never confident on grass, and had never been past the Quarter's it was some performance.

Yeah, she maintained a very high level of play throughout the match, and served so well

She was also amazing until she went up 6-1 5-1 against Hingis in the 2000 Australian Open final...then the wheels came off a bit

◄◄ Maria Sharapova ►►
Career Grand Slam.

Re: What match was the best your fave has ever played?

Jennifer Capriati deafeating Martina Hingis 6-4 6-3 : clinical performance. Great serving, great court coverage and great controlled aggresion by a PEAK Capriati. She did everything just great, and went in as the underdog, a champion spurned and a long shot to win a slam at 24. Jennifer left that day with her very first grand slam championship title, she left a champion crowned, a legend made and a fighter born. JUST AMAZING.

Capriati DEFEATED Mary Pierce 6-0 6-0: that was a bit of a shocker, but its still quite impresive as Mary is a grand slam Champion in her own right and a very talented player. Granted she was playing at perhaps half her ability, but still, a champion still and Capriati played superb to double bagel Mary.
