Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

The only one I saw was the Zurich 2000 final, and I remember being absolutely gutted afterwards Still it was a great match, I loved the two Slam finals they played also

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

The Aussie Open final was Lindsay at her best. She got to 6-1 5-1 in like 38 minutes

I think in terms of best collective quality was their 98 YEC clash. both girls just slugging it out

2000-01-17 Australian Open Hardcourt F Davenport 6-1 7-5

Because it really felt like the nail in the coffin of Hingis' dominance of women's tennis. Things got a lot more interesting after that. Also, Hingis chilled out a lot and I started liking her a little more after that loss.

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

The Philadelphia final in 1997 looks quite special, but I've never seen it.

My favourite one, even though it wasn't very competitve was the AO Final 2000, Lindsay at her best, but Martina trying bless her

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

I really loved their Zurich 2000 final. In terms of quality, it was absolutely mind-blowing.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Sydney 2001 final was a great match. Martina really enjoyed that match. And Zurich final,having won there meant much for Martina!

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

Apart from Zurich 2000 final also:
YEC 1999 final
Indian Wells 2000 final
Philadlphia 2000 final
Tokio 2001 final
All great matches, with some outstanding rallies.
Of course the AO 2000 final cause those first 13 games were just mindblowing.

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

The 2000 Swisscom Challenge final was fabulous, and so was the 2001 Sydney final The 2006 IW 4th round was a very special one, as Martina was just coming back, but Lindsay was injured...

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

My faverite Lindsay vs Martina matches both happened in 2000. The first being the Australian open final the way Lindsay gave Martina a butt spanking for most of the match was priceless. The second being the indian well final Martina had Lindsay a set and a break down and Lindsay won the last ten games and the thrid set 6-0 love that match.

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

2000 Zurich Final - High-quality match.
1998 US Open Final - Great win for Lindsay.
2000 Miami Final - The reason I like this, is because it was in this match wherein Hingis stopped Lindsay's five-match winning streak against her.

Re: Hingis vs. Davenport: Favorite Match

1997 Philadelphia- this final was sick! filled with drama and not to mention the score line. I think this win took the wind out of Martina's sails and why she lost to Pierce in the YEC that year.
