Ana vs Schiavone and Ana vs Jankovic were very nice.

the match where Serena beat Sveta 3-6 7-5 6-3 in the Miami semi was also one of the best imo.

Svetlana Kuznetsova

I'd go with Safina-Sharapova

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Personally it was the AO final, because I was there.

Havent seen a whole lot of matches aside from the slams thanks to our lack of coverage.

Serena's match against Sharapova in Charleston.
From the little I saw Dinara's match against Dementieva in RG.

I still think Henin def. Kuznetsova 4-6 6-2 6-4 at Sydney was the best. Ana-JJ RG semi comes in a close second. Some of those matches listed in the first post were exciting but not very good.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

For me Ana-JJ RG

Maria Kirilenko & Agnieszka Radwanska ♕
You're wrong, I'm right, I'm smart, you're dumb.

For amazing rallies:

Ana and Jelena at RG
Jelena and Paszek at AO

For drama:

Safina matches basically

Dinara Safina def. Maria Sharapova

Amazing match, so much drama. And Safina fought back rather than Pova choking!



Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......
