Re: The Best Semifinal Debate Thread

Okay, I love the way Sharapova was hitting against Mauresmo. I love the intensity and drama between Ivanovic and Hantuchova, but my vote goes to Henin and Dementieva because the match quality and variety was just at another level.

Re: The Best Semifinal Debate Thread

Wow. This is actually a good thread, and you fools come in here with some stupid ass posts.


jroll - of the three I'd agree with you, I remember that Rogers Cup Semi. Vintage horrible-serve Elena with kick-ass groundies, and some awesome rallies.

Re: The Best Semifinal Debate Thread

The Aussie Open semi final was so frustrating. Dani went from good to... because she let Ana's mannerisms get to her.

2 sets of the US Open match weren't even close to competetive. Silly Amelie

Didn't see the match, but watched the highlights. Seems to be a great match, presume that is was the best
