Like many Grand Slam finals aren't big time shitfests

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: WTA-finals that felt like Slam finals?

Tbh, I love making fun of Beijing as much as the next person but the atmosphere in some matches (Vika-Maria, Na-Shuai) really surprised me in a good way.

Re: WTA-finals that felt like Slam finals?

Well, considering most slam finals are uneventful beat downs, I'd say there are a lot of WTA finals that feel like slam finals.

Well then, let me re-arrange the thread title: WTA-finals that felt like exciting Slam finals?

Thanks to everyone who has replied btw, I agree Brisbane Henin vs Clijsters was also good! And of course the YEC finals such as the 2007 or 2005 ones had a great atmosphere.

Fan of the Four Beauty Angels

Maria Sharapova (Career High-Ranking: #1, Career Grand Slam ) · Caroline Wozniacki (Career High-Ranking: #1) · Ana Ivanovic (Career High-Ranking: #1, RG Champion) · Maria Kirilenko (Career High-Ranking: #10)

Kuznetsova · Bacsinszky · Svitolina · Diatchenko

Serena Capriati 2002 Miami. This match and atmosphere was everything a Slam Final could give. I remember sitting in front of the TV literally lol. Great stuff. Both ladies played like a point was in need of being proven. And of course Serena did just that lmao

This, handsdown. The crowd was basically on court for this match. And it was great quality, choking included.

Jelena Jankovic
- She used to know how to play tennis...
Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...
As her fans watch in awe at her ability to fuck that up...

Victoria Azarenka ~ Venus Williams
