Re: Best match of ALL-TIME? (Poll included!)

Nice trolling including the 2012 Olympics match in the poll, even knowing Serena's stunning performance at Charleston vs Stosur, or Masha's incredible 3 setter at Stuttgart against the same opponent


Anyway, had to vote for 1992 Roland Garros

Re: Best match of ALL-TIME? (Poll included!)

Whenever I watch Wimbledon 08 final & the 2007 USO semi-final I am amazed, definitely them for me.

The highlights for the USO SF between Venus and Henin are just too yummy. Gets my heart beating everytime.

Re: Best match of ALL-TIME? (Poll included!)

If you were going to nominate any Serena v Maria match, surely it should have been AO SF 2005? Hell, even their 04 YEC Final match. Both fair more competitive than the ones suggested in the poll.

Im not the next anyone. Im the first Maria Sharapova...

Re: Best match of ALL-TIME? (Poll included!)

Wimbledon 04 or Olympics 12 are so far from being in contention that it's not even funny. I do think 2000 USO SF or 2005 AO SF would be better choices. Or "Hard to say" 2005 Wimbledon final, featuring two hard hitting giants is so different from 2003 US SF for instance, but I do love both so it's tough to compare them.

Re: Best match of ALL-TIME? (Poll included!)

I voted for Venus vs Lindsay Wim 2005

and want to prefer Serena vs Dementieva Wimbledon 2009 match

IMO this match should be on the list too.

There was another thread where people posted the best forehand, best backhand, best server, best volleyer, and best match. That explains why the 04 Wimbledon final and the Olympics final are in this poll and why Azarenka is in the poll for greatest backhands of all time.

Should've named the poll; 'TF posters with the worst taste in everything'

Re: Best match of ALL-TIME? (Poll included!)

1985 or 1992 French Open Finals. Two of the greatest rivalries ever in women's tennis and high quality tennis in both.

Serena Hingis Venus Hsieh Keys Date-Krumm Riske

Pierce Seles Capriati Bartoli Davenport Kournikova Sugiyama Frazier

The last two options are trolling, butt the fact that someone picked this year's US Open final - and that they were most likely serious - slays me

The 1985 final is another great one. I've watched a lot of Evert/Navratilova matches and that one is head and shoulders above anything else they produced.
