What was the best final this year?

I included all Grand Slam and Tier I finals + Some remarquable Tier II finals

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.

It's gotta be Amelia Island. Probably the comeback of the decade and there's still over 7 years left in it.

The WTAworld Quote Hall of Fame (recent entries):
"All this year Kim has been have catwalk draws ..." - leslie, on Kim Clijsters' easy draws in 2003
"I wanna see Anna, I bet I could tape that ass" - SerenaSlam, on fan perception of Anna K.

"she has a face of a cereal killer" - Naldo, on Serena Williams

Amelia Island was absolutely awesome. I thought Justine was going to bagel Venus on the second set and blow her off the court. But Venus started to turn things around.... and boy did she ever!!!!

Aussie Open was amazing; the second set was anyway.

Amelia Island was a lot like the Aussie, but the 3rd was great tennis too.

LA, was just a classic battle.

Those three.

Aus Open was by far, the most dramatic and entertaining. The third set was a bit of a let down, but everything leading into it was tense as could be. Match points in a final....

Wow, there were some really good finals this year. It's close, but I thought that the Henin/S. Williams final in Berlin had that something extra. Each one dominated for a set, and they both played at a similar level in the third. Then in the third set tiebreaker, the shot that Henin had to come up with to set up match point -- wow. I can still see that shot in my mind. Second I think was the Amelia Island final, where Venus Williams had to play so well to win. Even though Henin dominated to start with and then lost, I thought the quality of the tennis was pretty good throughout. That was another one that came down to a third set-tiebreaker. Tight matches always seem to be the most thrilling.
