Mine is definitely US Open 1999, followed by US Open 2000! Two of my all-time favorite matches! According to me, it was the best rivalry of the late 90s and early 00s!

I agree with those two and I'd also pick AUS Open 2001 semifinal! I know the Williams fans don't like that match but us Hingis fans love it!

Yeah, that Wimbledon match was fun! I have it on tape and I love to watch it even though Hingis loses! I hate the US Open match that year though because of how she chokes and barely hits the overhead!

It's impossible to pick one.

99 US SF
00 US SF

are the best matches I've ever seen I think.

The US Open 1999 match was BY FAR the highest quality match they have ever played. It was very dramatic too, and had a lot of great shot-making, but the tennis itself was waaaaaaaaaay better than the rest of their matches especially the 2000 US Open which paled in comparison quite frankly (although it was still an excellent match, Hingis erred an awful lot and had that infamously hideous choke smash, and this is the girl who hits perfect smashes like there's no tomorrow).

Hingis had a lot of errors in the 2000 US Open? What match were you watching?

She didn't have a lot of errors but she had too many in comparison to her lackluster average of 4.3 winners per set, and most of these came towards the end of the third set including the most lackluster smash of her career.

In fact Hingis has only hit one smash worse than that as I can recall and it was against Seles at the 02 Oz, where she hit the ball completely wide.
