Which Serena´s grand slam victory was the best for you: AO 2007 or US Open 2008?

In Australia last year, Serena was out of shape and beat everyone, trashing Maria in that final, her speech was the most emotional, and she needed that victory very much
Now at this year´s US Open, she defeated her sister in a anticipated final, and cheered very much winning that match point, but her speech wasn´t that emotional
Which one do you like best??

aussie open simply because she won it out of nowhere, whereas she was the favorite to win this us open from the start.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

2007 AO. I have not seen her play like that since that final match. If she played like she did in that match she'd be unstoppable.

I think AO07 was most enjoyable because it was against all odds....she was fighting herself the hostile media and a pocket of bitter jealous players namely Petrova and Jelena..

I remember that, they said she was out of form, and if it would come to a third set her lack of fitness would show that... but they were wrong I think!

Hard to say. AO 07 was basically Serena sitting down how critics. The comeback against Petrova, who at one point looked so confident that she had time to apply hair spray during the match, beating Jelena quite comfortably and then Annahilating Sharapova like she did in the final. All while her movement wasn't good at all.

But I'm gonna take the USO 2008. The AO 2007 was unexpected but that worked to Serena's advantage, no pressure and extra motivation to prove people wrong. This time, she had to deal with the pressure of having people expecting her to win. After all the disappointment she's had this year and last year, she had to be extremely mentally tough, something that was looking vulnerable. Because I think this slam was tougher to win, especially having to take out perhaps her toughest opponents Venus and Jankovic who were playing pretty well... USO 2008. I also feel this is the turning point, I can feel a dominant streak.

For me 07 AO. It was as if it was Serena vs the world. She just took the wind out of all her detractors and left them speechless and amazed. OMG she brought the most hyped and soon #1 to tears. Both this victory and Venus'05 Wimbledon are the two I love the most.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the SILENCE OF OUR FRIENDS. MLK

AO 07, her declaration that she was still a force to be reckoned with, and the way she came out swinging against Maria and Jelena like they had stolen her favorite D.G. shades.

Really, don't even look at me...
