Best Matches in the GS

For the past eight Grand Slams (starting with the 02 Australian just to keep the list short), which matches have been the best at each of those GrandSlams?

Now that´s a difficult question!

RG´02: Serena vs Jen.
Wimbledon: Serena vs Venus
U.S. open ´02: Venus vs Momo.
Oz open´03: Serena vs Kim/ Serena vs Venus/ Justine vs Lindsay.
RG´03. Serena vs Justine, although the hand thingies made it a bit controversial, but it was a good match.

Wimbledon´03: Serena vs Jen/ Serena vs Venus, if Venus was healthier.

U.S. open´03: Justine vs Jen....because none of the other matches were great.

Always bet on black!

So Serena, Jen,Justine are the best GS-players so far.

Always bet on black!
