Most Hyped Up Match Of All Time
(I was thinking of including female players only, so "Battle of the Sexes" is sort of a category fraud... but it did involve a female player.
If you pick that one, post a match-up between two female tennis players.
E.g. 2004 Guangzhou final - Li vs Sucha - First WTA title for the Golden Flowers
or 2008 Olympics final - Demented vs Sanowa - who will win a title that actually matters?)
P.S. This entry is wrong "1988 USO final - Graf vs Sabatini (going for the Golden Slam)"
The Olympics were held after the USO, so Steffi was only completing the calendar slam by winning this match.
A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
