I want the 5 sets final back!!

I mean there got to be at least 1 yes one woman's match that will last 5 sets, and this is the right place to do it, i just didn't understand why they didn't have it anymore! it was so much fun! and this could proove that only the best could last and win in 5 sets! am i right?

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

yes I so want as well, year championship without the final five set match make it nothing special, we missed the five set epic, Monica five sets win over Gabriela, Graf five set win over Hngis the very young) The Hingis, Lindsay rivalry in 1998 and 1999. Now I dun even mind to see a five set Williams final, that will be great fun. Oh well, I wish it will never come back

Serena will win the championship (I keep writing my p's as t's for some reason after the shi part ) , but I am not so sure Venus will final. Given the right draw she will, but if Kim or Dani, or even Lindsay is in her section, it is Bye Bye Miss American Pie for Vee.

I agree.

I would rather see: 6-0, 6-0, 6-7, 0-6, 0-6 than just 6-0, 6-0.

Best final was Seles vs Sabatini which went to 5 sets in early
90's when Monica came back from 2 sets to 1 down

When Steffi bt Hingis in one yr two of the sets she won was 6-0 (3rd and 5th)

I'd like to see it back, the Women claim to be fitter and stronger than of previous years

Good luck to my favs

Niminator, I believe it was in 1999 when they switched back.

I believe they started this format in the mid-80s when Martina defeated Chris easily in the final, people wanted to see more for their buck. One of the better 3 set format finals was the 2000 one, unfortunately I don't think we can have that quality of play each time.

Well it would've happened in 2000 but Monica didnt want to play 5 sets, and last year there was no final, so we'll see what happens this year.

I agree, 5 sets for the ladies one time a year is a good idea
