Re: Hingis vs. Venus: Favorite Match

I think their most classic matches were the two US Open Semifinals. I prefer the 1999 one because Martina won. The 2000 was heartbreaking, but also fantastic.

Their 2001 AO Semifinal is a guilty pleasure of mine, too.

I will miss you forever, Martina!

Re: Hingis vs. Venus: Favorite Match

Their 3 Grand Slam matches during the 1999/2000 period were the three best imo. This was when their rivalry was it its most intense, Hingis had been dominating the rivalry more or less for two years and Venus was just starting to come into her own and really take it to Martina on a more consistent basis. Plus there was the fact that Martina was desperately trying to hang on to the mantle of best player in the world while Venus was trying desperately to establish herself as the best. Magical stuff.

In terms of competitiveness, drama, and for most parts, quality; there is no surpassing their two US Open semis. But overall my favourite match between them would be the US Open 2000 SF. Purely because Martina came SO CLOSE to winning but Venus wouldn't let her winning streak end. Great.

Re: Hingis vs. Venus: Favorite Match

US Open 2000 and Warsaw 2006
Both were great matches (at least for Venus )

Re: Hingis vs. Venus: Favorite Match

US Open 1999 was an amazing match.

Their four Slam matches 1999-2001 were all when they were at their peak. Nicely done.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Re: Hingis vs. Venus: Favorite Match

1999 US Open Semis...really great stuff.

Was really close until the end, when Venus started cramping and some of her beads fell off

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

Re: Hingis vs. Venus: Favorite Match

USO 1999 and 2000 were definitely the best, but Id pick 1999 because Hingis won so I liked it more. Other then that I havent seen a lot of older ones.

Re: Hingis vs. Venus: Favorite Match

The 2000 USO semifinal is my favorite match.

2000 Wimbledon QF was also good

One of the few matches I recorded (was working when they played) and still have on tape. I haven't played it (don't even have a VCR hooked up), but I feel more comfortable keeping it...like a favorite blanket. Thanks for the video. Not the same though without Carillo, John McEnroe, and Enberg commentating.

Especially like when Venus falls mid point, then gains the momentum back at the baseline before finishing the point off with a volley.

This match was so good because both players were playing so well from every part of the court.
