The most notable moments of the 2000-2009 Decade. A new decade begins...

Well 2009 has ended and next year is the start of a new decade, 2010-2019.

What are some of the amazing matches played?

Who is the most notable player of this era?

What are some of the most amazing moments?

Was it a good or weak era?

Discuss.

Re: The most notable moments of the 2000-2009 Decade. A new decade begins...

I can't believe it's already freakin' 2010! Where has the time gone...

I think several years ahead this era will be looked back on as being very strong.
Serena Slam is probably the most notable accomplishment IMO...
Other notables...
Equal prize money
Serena's existence (Regaining #1 after 5+yr gap, 11 slams, most prize money earned by a female athlete)
Vee's dominance at Wimby
JuJu's dominance at FO
Numerous rivalries, particularly of the early 2000s

I.M.S.

Fall of Hingis.

Belgian Revolution.
Russian Revolution.
#1 rank losing credibility.
Two epic chokers becoming multiple GS winners.
Coming out of closet retirement stories.

Elena's decision to trim her bangs will surely go down as the darkest moment of the decade.

Re: The most notable moments of the 2000-2009 Decade. A new decade begins...

THE matches that stands out to me most emotionally are
Hingis def. Serena AO QF 2001
Capriati def. Hingis AO F 2002
Venus def. Davenport Wimby F 2005
I love women's tennis.
My fav is Jelena Dokic but these matches stood out to me most, especially growing up as a kid as a Hingis fan.
Fav Dokic match would have to be Dokic def. Kleybanova this year. Anyone who was at RLA that night would agree.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

The longest Wimbledon final.
The longest Season-Ending Championships final.
The longest final set tiebreak.
7 (!) Grand Slams won after saving MPs.

I can't believe it's been 10 years already, since the Hingis-Davenport-Williams dramatic encounters. So many memories, I'm trying to put them all together but it's tougher than I thought

Dementieva being a top consistent player during the whole decade and still not being able to win one single GS title.

Re: The most notable moments of the 2000-2009 Decade. A new decade begins...

The overwhelming and defining story of the decade has been Venus & Serena, followed by Kim & Justine, but the stand-out moments for me were:

Capriati's comeback and rivalry with Serena.
Hingis falling, rising and falling again.
The Russian Revolution led by Sharapova.
Davenport's enduring presence at the top, but no Slams
Mauresmo finally having her moment.
The brief run at the top of the Serbian Sisters.

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena
