Why do we have to have the worst matches?...
Anyways, the best two in my opinion were:
Serena d Jenn at RG
Jenn d Martina at Aus

Cogito, ergo sum.

best serena-cappy in rome
serena-cappy at the french
those matches were thrillers

Kimmy-Fernandez Roland Garros

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

Best matches:

Jen-Marti AUSOpen
Kim-Amelie USOpen
Venus-Justine Antwerp

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

The worst match in terms of quality is the FO all- william finals...

best match in GS

AO, Jen over Martina or Monica over Venus
FO, Serena over Jen (no question)
Wim Serena over Venus
USO: Venus over amelie (but I would have love to say Amelie over Kim or Daniela over Justine if I actually get to see it )

-Oldest game in wtaboard, started in April 2000 even before wtaworld is born.
-You can create your own player, making their own name, making their personality.
-Some player has been playing for more than 10 years

Best - in regards to drama
Venus vs Hantuchova AusOpen
Serena vs Jennifer French OPEN
Hingis vs Jennifer Aus Open

Emotional matches
Monica vs Jennifer Miami - But I couldn't enjoy it as much because they edited some of it
Venus vs Serena- US OPEN

Matches I didn't enjoy much
Jennifer vs Amelie -AUS OPEN
Venus vs Serena- French Open

Unfortunaetly I haven't seen many matches outside the GS but
I remember the Venus vs Justine final in Belgium- I didn't get to see it but I loved the outcome because Vee became no.1 with the win
