Which match was the first one you watched?

I remember I zapped on the TV and saw Davenport - Graf, think it was 96 Olympic, Davenport won and I remember I was very impressed by Davenport, she was fat and dident move well, and won...I think I started watch a lot tennis from that moment... my favourite match so far is the semifinal between Henin - S Williams in Roland Garros 2003, great moment

Re: Which match was the first one you watched?

Women-wise...uh...some Capriati match at the USO 04. Probably the Serena one, but I didn't like. Really watch it watch it. The first tennis match I watched in general was some Andy Roddick match at that same event (his hotness is why I became a tennis fan, unfortunately ).

First women's match I really sat down and watched was...I keep wanting to say the 2005 Wimbledon final, but I know I saw some Pierce match at the French, and Justine beat down Sharapova at the French too. But again, I didn't really really watch either...

The first (women's) match I watched that I remember vividly is the 2006 Wimbledon QF between Sharapova/Dementieva. I really didn't watch much women's tennis before Wimbledon last year it seems...
