Ok I know it'll come to a big shock to you all that I'm starting a tennis thread
However I think a thread like this is needed because this is a good chance to bring back some happy memories of Martina's great matches
Strangely enough I think despite Martina winning the 5 Grand Slam matches and 35 other titles, my favourite two matches include none of these wins.
The matches I would choose is:
2001 Quarters Australian Open v Serena 6-2 3-6 8-6
1999 Semis US Open v Venus 6-1 4-6 6-3
Both matches followed the same sort of pattern in that Martina dominated the opening set and played some fantastic tennis. However in the second set she was pegged back and looked on the ropes going into the third. The match against Serena she was a double break 4-1 down and I think also 5-3 down but in the end it was sheer guts that allowed her to achieve the victory. The Venus match was another one where it was determination not to lose that won in the end and the quality from both players was tremendous.
Other matches I must mention:
1997 Wimbledon final v Novotna - The tournament where I really started to become a Martina fan.
2001 Aus Open semis v Venus - A 6-1 6-1 scoreline, defeating both Williams back to back in less than 24 hours.
2006 Aus Open 1st round v Zvonareva - This was the first time I had seen Martina since her comeback and it was a match that I never thought I would see again. Martina was simply amazing.
I wonder what everyone else will think and vote as their favourites
