What I also loved about the Venus-Lindz 2005 match was Venus's plait. It was nice. And the double fault on the first match point was so endearing.

Re: Matches That Make You Say Wow

serena vs seles canada '01 was one of those matches that you knew watching it was special.
serena was in amazing form and moving as fast as i've ever seen her, she was hitting the ball so hard and it was monica's sheer determination to stay with her that made it special. i had it on tape so remember it well!
serena hit an ace, backhand winner, forehand winner and drive volley winner in her 1st service game to hold to love, the game was on. seles held an equaly emphatic game straight after and the tennis from then on was breath taking. jo durie said commentating 'i can barely see the ball its going backwards and forewards so fast'. serena won a tight 1st set 7-5 which was an amazing set by itself (serenas serve was on, she was hitting 2nd serve aces and booming 1st serves).
the 2nd set was even better as seles hit the ball harder and serena moved so well just to get a racket on some balls. it was with serve untill 3-4, monica to serve, serena plays 3 amazing points for 0-40 and seles rips off 5 straight points, in which serena did nothing wrong, seles just went for broke on everything and landed them all for 4-4. serena holds for 4-5, monica serving to stay in the match and again serena plays 3 amazing points for 0-40 3 mp's, but seles wasn't done again as she rips of another 5 straight (with incredible tennis) points to take the match to 5-5. serena showed absolutely no signs of it bothering her and holds again for 5-6, monica goes 0-30 down gain and win 4 straight points to take it to the breaker. a great tie-break ended in serena winning 7-5 and there was a 2nd standing ovation (there was 1 for seles after coming back from 0-40 twice). it was just amazing tennis, with serena determined having lost to seles the week before and seles seemd inspired by being in canada and the love the crowd gave her.
thats one of my all time favourite matches!

Wow, I agree with you 100%. When I think of my time being a tennis fan, these matches are LEAGUES above the rest.

The Jennifer/Justine match was so amazing to watch. Even though I hate the ending, it was perhaps the one match where I was able to stand as a tennis fan and just enjoy the tennis and boy was it great.
