Have there been any classic matches so far this year?

And by this I mean a lot more winners than errors and both players playing well at the same time.

I can't remember one match so far.

well the Aus final was a classic - not neccessarily for the reasons mentioned above...

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

Maybe I should have re-phrased the topic line to 'quality'

Berlin Final - Justine vs Serena

The Rome final wasn't as good, but it was real good.

I remember the 2nd set of the Capriati and Rita Grande match in the fourth round at the aus open was very interesting. Both players were so caught up in the match that they forgot to change ends in the tiebreaker.

Jen and Martina in Australia is memorable. Other than that, maybe Monica/Venus in Australia.

When it comes to classic matches, the men have such an advantage over the women! The talent disparity between the top 5 women and the rest is enormous. Not so with the men. Thus, the men generally play closer and more exciting matches. Especially in the grand slams.

Jenn/Martina Aussie Open Final...I think that is the best match this year (so far), but that's just my opinion.

Go Jennifer!!
Good Luck in 2003!!
