Favorite Moments in Women's Tennis

What are some of your favorite precious moments in tennis? A recent one would be Tamarine Tanasugarn's premature celebration at the US Open.

- Iva Majoli vs. Mary Pierce at the final or semifinal Amelia Island(I think). Iva Majoli was having a bad serving day, with numerous double faults. After hitting yet another first serve into the net, she throws her racket in disgust. Then she serves her second serve and it's an ace out wide! The look of shock and relief in Iva's face was priceless. Even Mary applauded.

- A fan shouting his wedding proposal to Steffi Graf at the 1996 Wimbledon semifinal. And Steffi's response.

- Steffi missing an overhead shot at the 1996 Wimbledon final.

That's all I can think of right now. List yours!

Venus' reaction when she beat Hingis at the US Open 2000 semi-finals. Unbelievable!

Take care of your character. Reputation will sort itself.

Thanks Trish.
I was over the moon after that match. Not only Monica made it to the semifinal, who she beat there gave me extra jubilation.

Apart from the fact that Venus had knee tendonitis and couldn't move properly. And i wouldn't exactly call that win a 'bitchslap' either

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

did u see the match?

venus SAID in the interview that her knee problem didnt affect her play! she admitted she lost to a better player on the day

if people thought she wasnt moving properly, it was because she was stunned at the prospect of being beaten by monica for the 1st time!

you were still awake?

Serena's reaction after ho slappin HIngis 99 Us Open

Steffi's reaction after getting the 99 French Trophy

Martina Hingis's reaction to that great get 99 us open semi -v- Venus

Steffi's reaction to winnin 89 US Open(after Martina was pumping herself up and waving two fingers)

Steffi's reaction to thumping MOnica(again) 96 Us Open final The rain drenched trophy ceremony

Tanasugarn's premature celebration.

"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. "

Yes as a matter of fact i did see the match, and i saw the interview aswell.

But have you ever heard Venus blame an injury for defeat?? Venus unlike most players has too much class to go around blaming injurys for her defeats. I will admit though, that Monica did play a good match.

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
