Your favorite "Mary match"

Hi !

This is not an usual thread but ...

If you had to choose 5 matches of Mary in all her career, which one would you choose ?


My 5 favorites are :
1/ Mary vs Martina Hingis : semi final, French open 2000
2/ Mary vs Monica Seles : quarters, french open 2000
3/ Mary vs Sharapova : 3rd, Us open 2004
4/ Mary vs Graf : 1/2 French open 1994
5/ Mary vs Dokic : 2nd, Us Open 2003

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."



Mary Pierce

On the road since 1989

I hate that Mary vs. Martina FO semifinal! I nearly died watching that one.

1) Mary vs. S Williams: 2000 Indian Wells
2) Mary vs. Graf from above
3) Mary vs. Seles 2000 Hilton Head
4) Mary vs. Sanchez-Vicario 2000 Hilton Head
5) Mary vs. Martinez 2000 French Open (simply because it gave her the title)

But there are a lot of Mary matches I love.

Mary - Monica Hilton Head SF 2000
Mary - Monica RG QF 2000
Mary - Davenport US Open QF 1999(even though Mary lost)

The match vs Davenport in US Open QF 1999 was unbelievable. Mary led 5-3 in the 3rd, then was rain and ... lost 7-5. But the match was just amazing.

That 1994 French Semifinal with Graf is the finest display of tennis I've seen from a player in about 15 years of following the sport religiously. She was in a zone like none other I've seen and would have beaten any female player in the history of tennis with that display. It was just DEVASTATING stuff. Graf was lucky to get 4 games.

That US Open match was soo great!! I remember it was the first time I ever watched Mary! She was so beautiful in that outfit, and right in the exact moment, I fell in love with her

I also loooove that semifinal vs Hingis at the FO!

And the match against Serena in Indian Wells Mary was on fire
