What's the best match you've ever watched quality-wise?

Score doesn't matter, players don't matter, year doesn't matter.
Just name the most amazing tennis you've ever seen in a whole match!

Justine V. Lindsay AO 2003...I guess this wasn't one of the best matches ever, but I haven't been a fan of tennis for very long so I have only seen a very few matches!

I would have to say Jana Novotna - Steffi Graf, Wimbledon final 1993.

Until she choked in the third set, Novotna had the best performance I have ever seen, she was just amazing, doing everything perfect.

The serve, not many aces, just great placement and bouncing very high, so forcing Steffi to return high ball that Novotna could easily catch at the net.

Her volleys were just incredible, not only the touch but also she was guessing every passing shot, every lob, she was moving all across the net to reach the ball.

And the slice backhand approach shots?, deep, with the ball barely bouncing.

Very few times I've seen Steffi with no answers, and it wasn't that Steffi was off or anything, Novotna just had one of those days. Unfortunately she messed up in the third with one of her usual chokes

Steffi d Venus Wimbledon 99

The wrong player won, but the match was great.

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.

Seles - Graf 1992 French Open Final. One incredible shot after another; four match points saved; 18 games to decide the 3rd set.

Yeah, the Venus/Hingis semis in the U.S. Open were great.

I completely agree though with SerenaSlam, I thought the Serena/Seles semi in the Canadian Open two years ago was one of the best quality matches I have ever seen.
