Which match will you be voting for?

It's the last week of the poll on the WTA website. And the featured matches are:
2000 US OPEN SF
V. Williams d. Hingis 46, 63, 75

2001 AUSTRALIAN OPEN QF
Hingis d. S. Williams 62, 36, 86

2002 AUSTRALIAN OPEN FINAL
Capriati d. Hingis 46, 76(7), 62

2003 US OPEN
Henin-Hardenne d. Capriati 46, 75, 76(4)

Without any bias towards your favorite player, which match do you really think was the best?

I'm between the AUSOpen QF between Serena and Martina
and
the USOpen SF between Jenn and Justine.

What do y'all think?

DOES ANYONE HAVE THIS MATCH ON TAPE? FOR TRADE?

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I haven't seen the AO 2001 QF, but out of the other three. Venus/Hingis was the most entertaining and well played to me.

If people drool over Justine vs Jen, then they should go back and re-watch the ´01 oz qrtr between Serena and Hingis. That was one of the many great matches Serena played in ´01.

The oz qrtr had much much more drama and ballstriking than the Justine vs Jen semi this year.

Always bet on black!

I'd say the VWilliams def. Hingis 2000 USO semi, however, I was still in my post-Steffi retirement depression, and didn't watch the whole match. I can't agree with the Capriati/Henin-Hardenne match, because I never like seeing someone choke away a match like Capriati did. Much better to see 2 players on form in a good fight.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

I haven't seen Serena vs Martina 'cos I wasn't in tennis then, but I believe it was a great match and I wish I could see it, bandabou

Spoiled for choice ... not .

I'd probably vote for Martina vs Venus because of the high quality but I think JenCap vs Justine had more drama.

I'm not really happy that people say that Jenn choked the match away. I think that she did choke but I think it was also because Justine was just fearless whenever she was two points away from losing. Some of the best points played during that match was when justine was down either serving to stay in or receiving to stay in.

I voted for the Jenn and Justine match because I loved all the drama.

Martina-Venus for sure.

Am I the only person in the world who didn't find AO '02 final all that great? Sure, it had drama, but the quality wasn't really high.

I saw it and I still remember it like it was yesterday! To my knowledge it is the only qrtr on the list! That must be telling of how a good match it was!

Always bet on black!

And the choking thing could also be said about the Serena v. Martina match. Serena was up 4-1 in the final set! 4-1!
