upon realising how close the adidas international is, i just started to remember all the great matches the aussie girls have putup against the higher-ranked and more experienced players. here are some of my favourites:
2000. serena d. amanda graheme- iwas having palpatations in this match, so was amanda's sis, lol. and she was so composed, probably one of the greatest matches ive ever seen simply coz serena was exceedingly stuck up back then.
1999 hopman cup, i think, where dokic, who was an aussie back then, defeated aranxta and all these other good players to win the title even after a shitty performance by her and the scud in the 1st tie
2000 sydney. dokic d. dominikovic in 3 tight sets, every1 was expecting jelena to win but was really close nonetheless.
2001. evie beat patty in 3 sets, she hit this winner and u shuldve seen her expression, it was like, "omg, it went in"
so stoked she won that 1.
2003. stosur defeated conchita (my fave
) great score tho
2004. stosur's run through to the SF at the gold coast- probably the highlight of the year as it was completely unexpected and she shouldve gone through to the final but choked!
2004. molik's matches:
* defeated auresmo probably the best win coz i hate mauresmo and she's a shit player neway, just coz all she does is lob and slice doesn't mean she's a good player. i dont care what the ranking says
* beating maria to win zurich- awesome win.
2003. davenport d. pratt, funniest match ive probably seen, especially with nicole's backhand versus lindsay's power
she did well to get 6-3 6-3 compared to her other scores against lindsay.
2003. pratt d. washington 6-1 7-6... i take it back, this is the funniest match ive seen nicole play! there was one stage where there was a close line call and nicole was scampering and put her hands up mid-way through the point but played anyway, eventually won the point, and screamed "come on"...
2004. pratt vs zvonareva at the zo open, great match compared to her match with vera a week earlier
hmmm thats all i can think of now and i know these are probably all boring but im procrastinating from doing uni work so
what are yours?
