If you could set up ANY match-up...

If you could pick ANY match-up, what would it be and on what surface? (recent players!)

My pick:

Justine Henin-Hardenne vs Martina Hingis on rebound ace!

bielik vs molik on us hardcourt.

your match up is pretty good

i'd also like to see douchevina vs zvonareva on us hardcourt and sharapova vs golovin also on us hardcourt.

but i'd say bielik vs molik would be my first choice because they have very alike games (as far as i can see).

Els Callens vs Martina Navratilova on grass

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Navratilova '86 vs Serena '02 on red clay, with the temperature 90 degrees, in the RG finals, with the crowd VERY drunk.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Well this isn't recent but here's mine:

Tracy Austin (prime) vs. Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario (prime)

Tracy was the ONLY #1 ranked player Arantxa has never played and I would die to see this match! There was also a debate when Arantxa retired in who was the better player in history. Of course it's Arantxa but I would love to see a clearup if they got to play each other in their prime

ARANTXA SANCHEZ-VICARIO...Tennis legend in body and heart!

1989, 1994, 1998 French Open Champion, 1994 U.S. Open Champion
1994, 1995 Australian Open Finalist, 1995, 1996 Wimbledon Finalist
4- Time Olympic Medalist, 5-Time Fed Cup Winning Team, Inducted into Hall of Fame in 2007!!!
