Re: Which Grand Slam has the most dramatic matches???

Definately French Open. Just look at Stosur-Serena, Dinara-Maria, Sveta-Serena, Dinara-Lena, Jelena-Ana
Matches are wild, you dont know which way they're going
Very few expected Li& Stosur to play so well the last 2 years.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Which Grand Slam has the most dramatic matches???

Australian Open by far:

Seles/Rubin and Rubin/Sanchez vicario in 96
Serena/Hingis in 01
Capriati/Hingis, Seles/Venus in 02
Davenport/Henin in 03
Davenport/Molik, Davenport/Dechy, Serena/Maria in 05
Serena/Petrova, Serena/Peer, Hingis/Clijsters, Sharapova/Pin in 07
Ivanovic/Hantuchova, Jankovic/Paszek in 08
Serena/Sveta, Ivanovic/Kleybanova, Dokic/Kleybanova in 09
Serena/Azarenka, Venus/Li(even though it was a shitfest), Serena/Henin in 10
Sveta/Schiavone, Li/Wozniacki in 11

And a lot of others matches, it's the most dramatic slam!!

I'm a really WTA fanatic, I knew all this matches in my memory

Re: Which Grand Slam has the most dramatic matches???

I've always thought OZ because the players are so rusty that it ends up creating tighter matches between players that otherwise wouldn't have played a close match.

Re: Which Grand Slam has the most dramatic matches???

In recent years, the Aussie Open seems to have produced more than its fair share of thrilling women's matches. No doubt players being refreshed from the off-season is a factor. One truly outstanding match that hasn't been mentioned yet was Carla Suarez Navarro coming from 2-5 in the 3rd to beat Venus Williams.

Re: Which Grand Slam has the most dramatic matches???

1. Australian Open
2. French Open
3. Wimbledon (because of the short ralleys on fast surfaces)
4. US Open (because of the final set tie break)
