This is the standard setting match for modern tennis. A classic!

Re: Has there been a harder hitting match than this 1991 classic!!

the coury us also helping- ball bounce and comfort hitting zone are suitable for unlashing, plus they are goats, and the surface plays a good pace.


take a good day na and kvitova and place them there and then and itll look golden too, not to take away from this lovely gem. thank you.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Broadcast and recording audio has progressed a lot since 1991. Even the mics used today are often more sensitive.

Remember Navy complained about Monicas grunting in 1991 or 1992 and she meekly lost to Graf without her grunts. (I think it was the year she won 3 of the slams and reached the final at Wimbledon)

Re: Has there been a harder hitting match than this 1991 classic!!

Sharapova-Serena in Wimbledon 2010 was 10 times more powerful than that. Many more matches were.

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.

Venus - Sprem Berlin 2004. The way they were both hitting it was insane, not to mention that it was on clay
