Top 5 Favorite Matches So Far?

My ones...

1. S. Williams def. Henin [Miami]
- Great comeback for Serena after being bagelled, there was so much drama, being the final and saving the MPs and all. This was a classic Serena match!

2. V. Williams def. Jankovic [US Open]
- Exciting and climatic, Venus finally got her revenge on Jelena after losing a couple of times to her in a row.

3. S. Williams def. Sharapova [Australian Open]
- Absolute demolition. Nearly everything Serena hit was perfection. This was Serena near her best.

4. Bartoli def. Henin [Wimbledon]
- This match had so much spirit from Bartoli! Bartoli came back after what seemingly would be a routine win for Justine. She hit some amazing shots.

5. Jankovic def. Safarova [Wimbledon]
- What a high quality match! The first two sets were some of the best tennis I'd seen ever.


serena, jankovic, venus, na, hsieh, date-krumm, jovanovski

Talking Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches So Far?


1. Sydney Final; Kim Clijsters def. Jelena Jankovic 4-6 7-6(1) 6-4. Such a great match & great comeback from Kim.
2. Antwerp Final; Amélie Mauresmo def. Kim Clijsters 6-4 7-6(4) . Really great match, but Kim should have won.
3. Moscow Final; Elena Dementieva def. Serena Williams 5-7 6-1 6-1. Elena played unbeliveable!
4. Miami Final; Serena Williams def. Justine Henin 0-6 7-5 6-3. Good match, great comeback from Serena.
5. Roland Garros Final; Justine Henin def. Ana Ivanovic 6-1 6-2. Okay, it was a really bad match, but I'll never forget it, because it was Ana's first Grand Slam final.

Kim Clijsters;
... 2010, here she comes!

Caroline Wozniacki | Laura Robson
-> Dementieva & Ivanovic <-

Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches So Far?

1. Sydney Final Clijsters def. Jankovic: electric atmosphere, awesome rallies, great fight from Kim from match point down and just a GREAT match

2. Tokyo Final Hingis def. Ivanovic: Awesome display by Hingis, that was a sweet revenge for Montreal

3. Miami Final S. Williams def. Henin: Wow what a comeback from Serena, the end of the second set and the third set were soooo tense, great match really

4. Wimbledon Semifinal Bartoli def. Henin: Unbelievable shock for everybody, nobody expected Marion to win that one, and the way she did it was absolutely fabulous, just winners everywhere

5. Moscow Final Dementieva def. S. Williams: I felt like it was a dream of Elena to win a match like that, in her hometown in front of her fans Great week for her, she deserved it so much

Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches So Far?

Serena def. Henin in Miami final - didn't like the result, but this match had some great play and one of Serena's ridiculous comebacks....
Jankovic def. V Williams in Family Cup semi's- third set tie-break and plenty of momentum swings
Henin def. Mauresmo - Eastborne final - Another nailbitingly close match, rematch of Wimby final from a year before.
Henin def. Venus USO SF
Henin def. Serena USO QF - The first williams double in a slam win!

Re: Top 5 Favorite Matches So Far?

Top 5 Matches.

1. S. Williams def. S. Peer - Australian 07 QF.
2. V.Williams def. J.Jankovic - US 07 QF.
3. S.Williams def. J.Henin - Miami 07 F.
4. J.Henin def. V. Williams - US 07 SF.
5. A.Ivanovic def. N.Vaidisova - Wimbledon 07 QF.

Clearly I'm a little biased. For a match to have drama, quality or tension -- I'd need a Williams sister. More Henin matches should be included but she demolishes her opponents so it excludes most of her year.
