Re: WTA-finals that felt like Slam finals?

Hingis vs. Davenport, Venus, Serena, there's probably at least 10 sold-out, epic, dramatic matches I could list. Zurich 2000 comes to mind first.

"It’s always been, ‘I wonder what she’s got, Sharapova?’, because I don’t see that she’s got something that special… Or do you know? Can you tell? What’s so exceptional about her?”

-- Legend, shortly before crushing Vulturepova

Re: WTA-finals that felt like Slam finals?

Going on quality alone for this year, Paszek/Kerber Eastbourne F. The quality was pretty insane, as was the drama. Paszek had to hit like 6 winners a point just win the point and she saved MPs like a boss. Crazy thing is just mere days later she played a match of HIGHER caliber.

Mauresmo - Capriati in 2004 Rome final...
When you think about the quality of the French Open final a couple of weeks later, it's insane!
