Where does this Roland Garros Final rank with those of previous years?

Over the past 7 finals which one do you think was the best ?

As a tournament as a whole it was quite good, but as a final ?

No really great ones since Capriatti vs Clijsters so this one might as well be the best.

Re: Where does this Roland Garros Final rank with those of previous years?

None of them have been anywhere near mentionable since Kim/Capriati 2001. A couple of them had a few moments of brilliancem but that's about it. None of them have even been three-setters!

Thank You, Kim

I think I might have to vote for Venus vs. Serena

Re: Where does this Roland Garros Final rank with those of previous years?

This one was okay. The winners/ufes were close on both sides, Dinara is just not good a player as Ana. At least it wasn't a snoozefest.

Serena/Venus. Then after that, it got worse and worse.

The 2001 final wasn't good either.
Dramatic, yes - but most of the time horrible tennis.

Re: Where does this Roland Garros Final rank with those of previous years?

Unfortunately only 1999 and 2001 have been memorable over the past 10 years, but I guess I will have to go with 2002. Career defining moment for Serena. (well, the beginning of it. )

Venus Ana Caro Sloane
Timea Aga Masha Bencic Kristyna Keys Dani
Sania Vika Nicole Petko Simona Broady Robi CiCi Mladenovic Garcia JJ Errani Duval


Martina Hingis Forever!!!

Re: Where does this Roland Garros Final rank with those of previous years?

depends if you prefer a one-sided match with beautiful tennis or a close match between two girls hardly able to mix it up. And the Justine haters will not vote for her, of course...

Well since 2001 they're both: not dramatic and horrible tennis.

Re: Where does this Roland Garros Final rank with those of previous years?

2002! But from 2003 onwards, todays final was the best. It was filled with drama, tension and some great play. Both girls were going for it, Ana had a bit more on the line, this being her third final, new number one... It was good. Much better than any of the ones in the past few years, where either the tennis was just awful / you didn't even have to watch because you know Henin would have a comfortable win.

I rank it, number 2!

Re: Where does this Roland Garros Final rank with those of previous years?

The quality of todays final was good, as was 2006's final. There were dramatics in the 2002 final, but apart from that all the finals have been lacking in drama and of abysmal quality since 2001.

The first two sets were a bit iffy in the 2001 Final - quality wise - but after that it was amazing from both really.
