Most emotional/touching speeches

What were the most touching speeches you have ever seen? I noticed that I often cried with the players when they got emotional during their speech. One great example is Serena dedicating her AO 07 win to Yetunde.

(Speech starts at 8:45)

I am sure I was not the only one deeply touched by this.


EDIT: Posts are worthless without videos attached to it.

Re: Most emotional/touching speeches

First one that comes to my mind is the 2007 Australian Open speech by Sarin. Still brings me tears every time I see it.

Re: Most emotional/touching speeches

I'd say Serena in 2007 too - and Maria also gave a very mature and classy runner-up speech too.

Re: Most emotional/touching speeches

Serena's AO 2003 and 2007 speeches always get me. Davenport's doubles RU speech at the AO in 2005 was one of the sweetest I'd seen. So sincere and beautifully uttered.



Serena's speech at around 40.00.
