Re: Best Matches of the Year...So Far

my favourites were Jankovic vs Paszek, Schiavone vs Henin and Ivanovic vs Dechy...but my vote goes to Jankovic vs Paszek, because Janko really battled to save the MPs.

Re: Best Matches of the Year...So Far

As far as "emotions" go, because of the scoreline, it's a close battle between Ivanovic-Dechy and the drama between Jelena and Tamira. I'll go for the latter because of the harsh temperature condition.

Tennis quality wise, in my opinion, none of them: so far, best of the year are Jankovic-Venus in Rome, Schnyder-Sharapova in Rome and the final of Wimbledon.

Venus floats like a butterfly and Serena stings like a bee !

Re: Best Matches of the Year...So Far

Serena vs Venus Bangalore SF
(not of a big fan of either player but the match is a classic, even the Bangalore crowd got into it too. )
Dinara vs Maria dinara vs Elena at French were the next best matches.

Ivo "Grass/Indoor King" Karlovic
Sania Mirza.
