Best and most memorable victory celebrations

Here are a few of my favourites:

Venus @ US Open 2000 after defeating Hingis. That's my all-time #1

Venus @ Wimbledon 2000 after defeating Hingis and also after defeating Davenport.

Venus @ Lipton 99 after defeating Graf.

Graf @ Wimbledon 92 after defeating Seles, ace down the T

Seles @ French Open 90 after defeating Graf.

Capriati @ French Open 01 after defeating Hingis.

Serena @ US Open 99 after defeating Hingis.

Serena @ US Open 02 after defeating Davenport. I loved the scream

What's yours?

Steffi's celebration after french 99

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Jana Novotna at Wimbledon she sure deserved to win that after all her efforts, what a celebration though. Couldn't even stop crying at the presentation bless her.

Gabriela Sabatini's victory at US Open 1990...seems like an eternity ago...but the genuine excitement and accomplishment, as well as her emotional hug with her brother...

I liked Gaby's as well.

And there was one at the US Open several years ago. After Gigi and Natasha won the doubles title, they took off their shirts in celebration. They had the word "Adidas" spelled out across their sports bras. Natasha was "ADI" and Gigi was "DAS". At first, Gigi stood on the wrong side, and they spelled "DASADI". (This was before wearing just a sports bra for practice was common.)

When CBS was showing old matches the other week, I watched the last set of Venus and Irina Spirilea (sp?) and Venus' reaction after she won - jumping up and down, gasping for air, squealing with joy - that was the best for me.

Or is that just a coincidence?

I meant, do you dislike her or is it just a coincidence half of your matches have her on the losing end?

I'm not picking, just curious.

Oh yeah it seems like it eh... no of course not, I like Martina.

It's just Venus and Serena have very expressive and upbeat victory celebrations (which I love) and beating Martina Hingis brings out (or used to bring out) the best in them Example, Venus at US Open 2000.

I have to agree about Venus over Spirlea...that is priceless.

Also Venus, when she beat Martina at Wimbledon 2000...she won the title with that match, even though it was the QF.

Venus is so introverted...perhaps that's why her celebrations are the best. Maybe it's the only time she allows herself to cut loose.
