Favourite Wimbledon Champion of the 90's

Im getting a bit of a picture re your fave Champs of the 2000's. How about the 90's? For me it was prob Jana Novotna as she really thought she had ran out of chances.

Re: Favourite Wimbledon Champion of the 90's

Jana Novotna had a story. She lost in two finals in past including dissapoiting loss after she had her match with Steffi already winning and she was one of best players on tour which hadn't Slam adn won it in last step of her carrier. I wote for her as well ...

Re: Favourite Wimbledon Champion of the 90's

Martina...
EDIT: Hingis of course

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I watched first Wimbledon in 1997, so I say Davenport in '99. She was my favourite player back then.

Lindsay. Her reaction was just beyond adorable.

I will say that Jana finally winning after being so close was probably the most memorable.
