Re: Which was the first match you ever saw:

1. Serena - It might've been one I don't remember, but I'll say the '99 US Open final.
2. Henin - Honestly don't recall...sometime in 2002 or 2003.
3. Clijsters - May not have actually seen one till R16 Australian '06 vs. Schiavone.
4. Hingis - Oh now that's really going back...probably at the FO or Wimbledon 97. I definitely remember vs. Venus in the USO '97 finals.
5. Davenport - US Open finals '98.
6. Capriati - Now THAT'S really going back. No idea but it'd have been in 1990 at either FO or Wimby.
7. Dementieva - Not until vs. Maria at last year's Wimby. Wasn't watching much this decade before 06.
8. Myskina - vs. Henin in Eastbourne final last year.
9. Jankovic - L.A. 06 semi vs. Serena.
10. Seles - possibly French Open 1989 vs. Graf
11. Sharapova - AO '06 R16 vs. Hantuchova
12. Venus - 1997 USO final vs. Hingis...although I may have seen the semi vs. Spirlea too. I def. remember the bump incident.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.
