i dont no if this thread has been done b4 but id be interesting in what other people thought... which do u think is the best tournament that has occurred in recent years results/wise?

i have 2 in mind:

aus open 2001:

3/4 of the QF went to three high class 3 sets:

QF Lindsay Davenport(2) d. Anna Kournikova(8) 6-4 6-2
QF Jennifer Capriati(12) d. Monica Seles(4) 5-7 6-4 6-3
QF Venus Williams(3) d. Amanda Coetzer(10) 2-6 6-1 8-6
QF Martina Hingis(1) d. Serena Williams(6) 6-2 3-6 8-6

and hingis' domination of venus in the semi's was just :eek:

the other one would be philadelphia 1997 where hingis was stretched to 3 sets in every round she played and she till took the title :bounce:

M Hingis(1) - L Davenport(5) 7-5 6-79 7-64
SF M Hingis(1) - A Sanchez-Vicario(8) 1-6 7-65 6-3
QF M Hingis(1) - A Huber 7-68 5-7 6-4
2 M Hingis(1) - S Appelmans 6-2 4-6 6-2


both great tournies IMO. what bout u?

cheers
