For me, it was Sveta vs. Azarenka even though Sveta lost the match. Sveta was brilliant for a good part of the first set showing what a talent she is and she still has it in her and hopefully will turn her career around.

I guess the most memorable match will either be Sloane vs. Serena or Vika vs. Li Na.

Most entertaining was probably Vika vs Hampton.

Is the product you manufacture found in your kitchen?

I loved Vika vs Sveta. The sprited Russian used her versatile game to the extent to trouble Vika. Once down 1-4, Miss Relentless from Belarus stepped her game up and brought down Sveta. The first set was so enjoyable

I thought the Hampton/Vika match was intriguing.

But you know, when it's freezing here in NYC, even a shitty match is fun, because it vicariously brings me into summer.

Re: One most memorable match of AO 2013?

It wasn't a tournament of great matches, but there were plenty of matches which had high drama, for so many reasons.

But my pick is Azarenka v Hampton, Hampton really tested Vika and played out of her skin, and showed what a great prospect she is, shame she got an injury, because if she didn't I believe she would of knocked Vika out.

Final. Not because of the quality or Azarenka, but because of Li's attitude and smile after everything she went through.

Definitely Li vs Azarenka, at least IMO

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Sloane Stephens vs Serena Williams, so much drama. Also, I was genuinely shocked when Sloane reeled off the last 3 games of the match from 3-4* down, never would have predicted that.

The most memorable would definitely be the final.

In terms of most enjoyable, probably Caro vs. Sveta.
