INteresting Question!!!! I think Wimby or US Open 2000 when Venus proved she could be the best....Beating Hingis in two great amtches in both was great! Especially that smeifinal which ill always remember!

Hi cdpoulin! ca va?

My faves would be Australian Open 1999 for the results, US Open 1999 for the greatest matches and Australian Open 2001 for the same reasons! I also loved US Open 2000!

well, its usually been wimbledon cuz well, its wimbledon. plus, venus got her first slam there, novotna won there. the only drawback there was that steffi won too many times

now i love the french open. most of my faves win there. kim had her breakthrough there, justine won her first slam there, andre completed his career GS there, serena FINALLY won there, mary won there, arantxa won it 3 times...

Oz open ´01, U.S. open´01, Oz open´03, those were the most thrilling GS´s since ´98 to me.

Always bet on black!

AO2002

The Monica-Venus match, the Monica-Martina match, the Kim-Jennifer match, the Jennifer-Martina match. Such high drama.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Can't decide between:

1999 US Open
It seems EVERY match on the women's side was a classic.

2000 Wimbledon
Venus had the toughest draw; being out 6 months, playing in her FOURTH event of the year, and she wins. Amazing. And the leap
