your fav's most satisfying 03 win

Here are mine:

Serena: wimbledon semi's - obviously due to all the drama surrounding RG Serena was delighted with this win, and I love when she told JHH "Sorry about that."

Venus: Again, Wimbledon semi's - even Venus was doubting her capabilities in the first set of that match with Kim, but she dug deep and waxed her in the third 6-1.

Harkleroad: RG 2nd round with Hantucova....that match was like watching 2 sorority girls fighting over a man!

1) patty def mauremo 6-2, 6-2 in zurich 2nd round

2) patty def myskina 6-1, 6-1 in linz quarter-final

patty's loss to henin at RG was probably the most satisying (and frustrating) because she showed how much ability she has.

1) chanda def capriati 2-6, 7-5, 6-2 in Eastbourne semi coming from 2-6, 3-5*(15-40) down.

2) chanda def henin 6-3, 6-2 in miami quarter-final

3) chanda def mauresmo 6-0, 6-2 in miami 4th round.

Justine over Kim in San Diego final. Best day of my 2003 summer, tennis-wise and non tennis-wise

There were alot this year for me..

There were some really outstanding ones because of the heart, the emotions and just pure burning desire on the part of the players.
2003 was by far better than 2002 in this department.

Let's start with the HOPMAN CUP 2003. Watching Alicia Molik playing
with so much soul and spirit was a good omen. I'm not even a fan of
hers nor really Leyton's; but they were just so great together in leading
Australia to the title. It was very thrilling.

AO 2003- Klara K over Monica. Big upset; but really endearing too.
Marlene W over Jen. I felt kind of bad, because I love Jenn;
but I wanted Marlene won me totally over and I couldn't stop
cheering for her.

WTA India- Tammy over Iroda(Final). This was just fantastic news and
I felt so happy and proud for her. Just a really good feeling.

State Farm - Ai over Kim (Final)- What an incredible day it was. 2
matches, and a doubles title too. Just an amazing day.
This is the sort of heart that all players should show.

B&A - Elena D over Lindsay (Final)- She finally won her first title.
The tears of joys from Elena could melt the South Pole.

Family Circle- Justine over Serena(Final). It was just pure class, and
could be the first sign of a different mature player.
Also important because it was only the 2nd time in the
year Serena looked to a bit concerned about the match.

RG- Vera Z over Venus- Found myself cheering my head of for Vera.

Justine over Serena (Final) An emotional day all around. It had
everything ;but the kitchen sink in this drama filled match.

WIMBLEDON- Shinobu over Daniela- I like Daniela;but Shinobu won
me, the tv viewers and everyone in that court on her
side. It was such a contrast of personalities; one afraid
of losing, and the other just relishing every second.

Elena over Chanda (Shanghai/Bali) Part I/Part II- Good times.


Ashley Harkleroad- I wanted to hate her; but her fiery match play
was a joy and thrill to watch in 2003. Very entertaining and with
so much passion. Great stuff!!

There were more; but these ones come to mind first.
Mind you, some of these players weren't even my favorites until
after that "certain" big match. It just changed everything; and I
find myself looking out for their results all the time now.

Wasn't Molik just great in the early season?. I was
so bummed when she injured herself and couldn't
keep that going into the local AO 2003.

When Jen crushed both Amelie and Lindsay to win the New Haven title, she really thrashed both girls big time

These are my favorite wins too:

chanda def henin 6-3, 6-2 in miami quarter-final

chanda def mauresmo 6-0, 6-2 in miami 4th round.



Rubin had a great run at Miami and as the year winds down, I feel Chanda had an exhilarating year on the tour; filled with many ups and many downs

Elena D's titles. Especially AI, the players she beat en route and the way she fought was very satisfying.

Jen: Winning a title!
