No doubt the toughness of Serena to come back in her SF match, and to stay ahead in the final. Her SF put the biggest smile on my face during the whole fortnight. Reminds me of why she is so endearing.

1/The Dementieva/Serena match was awesome, with the MP saved by Serena at the net.
2/ the thrashing of Safina by Venus. Priceless

Re: Highlight of Wimbledon??

As much as I loved The Bump, nothing tops the Serena-Dementieva semifinal. It made me a bit sad and a bit mad, but it reminded me that I'm still passionate about the sport, at a time when I needed that strong reminder.

Re: Highlight of Wimbledon??

Easily the Serena-Elena SF, but the real answer would be found on MTF. Not for the first time, the women's tournament just pales in comparison, even though its latter stages were a bit better than most in the last couple of years.

The Serena/Elena SF - It was the first time in a long while a tennis match has had me on the edge of my seat

This is my cool signature

Re: Highlight of Wimbledon??

Safina's crash and burn. Should not have happened. She needs a new coach. A head coach.

Re: Highlight of Wimbledon??

The fact that it was another all Williams final. Not that it was the best. A little anti-climatic after the Elena/Serena battle, but I knew I'd be happy one way or the other with the outcome.

Re: Highlight of Wimbledon??

Either the semi between Elena and Serena or the beautiful 1-6, 0-6 effort by Dinara Safina.

-The Oudin-Jankovic match.
-Any time Vika stepped on court. Those meltdowns are just icing.
