Underrated matches?

Thoughts on which top quality matches are often forgotten by fans and critics alike?

One to consider

Re: Underrated matches?

Hingis-Graf 99.

It's usually only mentioned because of the drama, but there's a reason why Hingis was uncharacteristically physically spent by the end of the second set. The all-court placement and tactical battle especially in the second was great. Steffi's backhand was superb in that match with her assortment of incredible depth, angles, short balls, drop shots and lobs.

Re: Underrated matches?

AO-2005 QF

Lindsay Davenport def Alicia Molik 6-4 4-6 9-7

Even though Alicia didn't win, I will always remember this as one of her highest quality and most exciting matches.

Samantha Stosur, Daniela Hantuchova, Lucie Safarova

Kim Birrell, Sabine Lisicki, Abbie Myers, Priscilla Hon

Kristina Mladenovic, Heather Watson, Ana Konjuh, Zoe Hives

Coming from a poster who doesn't even know how to use the correct form of "You're"?

Back on topic that was a fantastic match. A lot of people also skip over Serena's first round epic in the 2003 AO against Emilie Loit where she dodged a very close bullet.

Re: Underrated matches?

For me i think it would have to be Kulikova and Strycova Zahlavova, such a close match. Don't know about the quality though, apparently it was very nasty

So you've never even seen the match? But you'll mention it at any opportunity What grounds do you have to say that is "underrated" then?

Re: Underrated matches?

Serena Williams def Shahar Peer 2007 Australian Open QF 3-6, 6-2, 8-6

I feel that this is one of Serena's lesser talked about Australian Open comebacks. It was definitely one of the best matches I've seen Shahar play in her career and she was 2 points away from eliminating Serena. I was on the edge of my chair for the whole match and while I was so happy Serena won, I was a bit gutted for Shahar.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.
