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.
(1)A lot is being made of the record Serena has vs Sharapova. It is being used as THE reason she will win again lol. Good thing we have players like Tomas Berdych (who had an even worse record vs Nadal) to remind us of the fallacy of this nonsense logic.
(2)You stans may as well sleep well tonight because tomorrow the a replay of Lucie's winning moment over and over again will haunt your dreams for weeks to come
(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.
