Re: What has been the best rivalry of the past decade?

Venus and Hingis surely had some great matches, but nothing excited me more or got me amped like a JCap vs. Serena match. Who cares about quality of play with those two, it's all about DRAMA and they never failed to deliver. The was the best rivalry in the last decade and deserved to at least be a category on your poll.

Serena vs. Capriati- The most exciting
Hingis. Davenport, and Venus all mixed it up nicely with one another as well

Re: What has been the best rivalry of the past decade?

I chose Venus vs Linds, that rivaly had some great matches in it.
I also wanted to pick Capriati vs Serena, that match in 2002 YEC was worth everything the best tennis from both!

Without a doubt, Serena vs Justine.

So much controversy, so much drama, so much backtalk, so unpredictable who's gonna win the next match. I mean, does it get better than this (orgasms)!?!

Re: What has been the best rivalry of the past decade?

Well.... How about Steffi Graf vs Martina Hingis? I think they had a great rivalry. I also enjoyed matches between Aratxa Sanchez Vicario and Martinez. They were two of the best Spanish women I have ever seen. Venus had some tension with this girl from Romania.. I'm sorry I don't remember her name... a tall woman, who bumped into Venus during the change over. I think he said something nasty to Venus then. their rivalry was interesting too1
