Arrow What is the best taped match you have?

We are always talking about the best match ever, but how about actually GETTING that match. I have got pretty much a lot of tapes, but I'm missing a lot of Lindsay's.
Anyway the questions go:

- What is the best match you have on tape?
Martina vs. Steffi 99 FO (since second set onwards)

- What match is the one you most like (on tape)?
Lindsay vs. Steffi 99 Wimbledon Final

- What match do you recomend others to have?
I personally would say AO 2002 Martina vs. Jen Final. A MUST HAVE match, all though it's very heart-breaking it's completely amazing.

- What match would you wish to have?
I would really want to know about the Venus vs. Steffi 99 Wimby QF. I mean the score is 46 62 64. How can THAT be so thrilling? I would also love to have many more Lindsay matches, but now I'm just lookin' for great matches to watch.

PS: Has anyone of you ever bought anything from videoarc? Was the service good?

The match I enjoy watching over and over is '02 Wimby final with Serena and Venus. The rallies... just amazing. This one they both clearly wanted.

The most memorable would be the '99 USO Final with Serena and Martina. No one could believe what was happening. Martina was so off and was just looking for anything to change the match.

The match I recommend others have is '03 FCC SF's with Serena and Lindsay. The first set and a half of complete domination pretty much summed up why Serena's #1.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

about venus-steffi wimbledon, it was a lot of drama bc people had high expectations of venus but steffi had won so much.

also of course Chris Evert and others were saying it was "the real final"

Venus was hitting some huge serves but her game fell apart as happens too often. Steffi said before the match, "If she serves well, it will be very difficult."

Venus said before the match, "She's won (7 times?) so I have to try and take something for myself"

This is defintely not the best match that I have taped, but certainly, the most precious one for me at the moment and probably for a long time.

Amelia Island 2003 Final.

- What is the best match you have on tape?
Venus vs. Martina US SF '00 or Martina vs. Jennifer AO F '01

- What match is the one you most like (on tape)?
Venus vs. Jennifer US SF '01

- What match do you recomend others to have?
I think maybe Venus' breakthrough at Wimbledon '00, the QF against Martina. Also the Chase final in '00 Martina and Seles an amazing match. Both players giving it their all.

- What match would you wish to have?
I would really like a match with Venus playing Graf. Or the one where her beads fall out.

Venus' beads fell out in several of matches but it was ignored until her racket kept on hitting them and knocking them out in Melbourne 99(?).

She lost her composure but quickly regained it after the match.

- What is the best match you have on tape?
I can't choose one.

1992 French Open final Monica Seles vs Steffi Graf
1999 French Open final Steffi Graf vs Martina Hingis
2000 US Open semifinal Venus Williams vs Martina Hingis
2000 Chase Championship final Martina Hingis vs Monica Seles
2001 Ericcson Open final Venus Williams vs Jennifer Capriati
2002 Australian Open final Jennifer Capriati vs. Martina Hingis
2002 Amelia Island final Venus Williams vs Justine Henin-Hardenne
2002 French Open semifinal Serena Williams vs Jennifer Capriati
2002 Sanex Championship semifinal Serena Williams vs Jennifer Capriati

- What match is the one you most like (on tape)?
1998 Sydney Venus Williams vs Martina Hingis
1998 Lipton quarterfinal Serena Williams vs Martina Hingis

- What match do you recommend others to have?
I highly recommend any of these three:
- '99 FO F Steffi vs Martina (this match was full of drama, Martina crying, crowding booing her and chanting Steffi's name, Martina going to the other side of the net etc.)
- '00 USO SF Venus vs Martina semi (a great match, incredible drama - Richard leaving the stadium, Venus staging comeback and Melanie "cheating" - exhilarating rallies)
- '00 Chase Championship final Martina vs Monica
