Anyone know what tournament this is from? I've never seen Venus play so good on clay It's a nice reel of highlights.

Re: Classic Venus vs. Hingis match

that's not even close to their best though. I feel their best matches are the 99 US Open and the 00 US Open semi finals. Just brillant tennis two years in a row

Re: Classic Venus vs. Hingis match

What happened was Venus beat Hingis here 4-6 7-5 6-4 in Warsaw evening their H2H. Then, Hingis beat Venus in Rome the next week 0-6 6-3 6-3 taking the advantage once again!

High in entertainment value, and that's what makes a match great to me. Oh, and when Venus wins.

Re: Classic Venus vs. Hingis match

That clip brought back sooooooo many memories. There were a lot more great shots than that, but it was overall a pretty dodgy match until the third when Venus was going for broke. Dodgy or not, it had tons and tons of drama and one of Venus' best and most important wins in the past couple of years. Simply stunning. Just one reason why she means so much to me.

This is, IMO, their best match...the 2000 USO SF.

Re: Classic Venus vs. Hingis match

Definitely US Open matches were the best ever. Both players were just amazing. Best showing of Power Vs. Finesse ever!

Rome 2006 was much cleaner from both, and Venus played better since she made half of the errors that she produced in Warsaw.. sadly it was not enough to win
