Re: Best Grand Slam Match Of The Year?

Australian Open final wasn't that good. Both had played better tennis before that final.

My favorite was RG semifinals, Ivanovic bt. Jankovic.

Agreed. Outstanding tennis.

Not my personal fave, but loved the quality.

Re: Best Grand Slam Match Of The Year?

I'm still waiting on a match with the quality of Venus/Lindsay at the 2005 Wimbledon. We haven't seen that type of match

Re: Best Grand Slam Match Of The Year?

AO 1R jankovic bt paszek
AO QF sharapova bt henin
RG SF ivanovic bt jankovic
USO QF williams bt williams
USO F williams bt jankovic

my personal fav is absolutely every sharapova's match in AO
especially when she demolished henin 64 60

Re: Best Grand Slam Match Of The Year?

The Aussie Open final?!

Such anxious, nervy tennis from both. Sharapova could've won far easier and Ivanovic couldnt hit a forehand in if her life depended on it. A very drab final IMO.

The Wimby final was great quality, probably low on the drama though.

The US Open final had the best mixture for me- quality, drama, crowd reaction

Re: Best Grand Slam Match Of The Year?

For me personally, it's a tie between Ivanovic def. Hantuchova AO SF and Serena def. Venus USO QF, both such exciting matches.

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Ivanovic def. Jankovic at French Open SF

I really liked Cornet vs Radwanska in the 3R? of the French.

Re: Best Grand Slam Match Of The Year?

Serena v Venus [US Open QF]
Ivanovic v Jankovic [RG SF]

Sharapova v Safina at the French was exciting but I don't remember it fondly
