i was just wondering cuz i rarely see anyone who has serena matches from the very beg. of her career......i would love to see if i could trade with someone who does......

some particular ones of interest:

sydney 98' semi serena def. davenport 1-6 7-5 7-5
miami qf 98' hingis def. serena 6-3 1-6 7-6
chicago 97' qf serena def. seles 4-6 6-1 6-1

like i said im not even sure if these matches were even on tv........but if anyone has these or any great matches from serena's early days i would love to hear about it.........thanks in advance :D

I don't have any of those early matches, but they would be VERY interesting to watch.

Hi VeeReeFan

Two of the four matches are available from "Tennis Videos International". You could ask them for 2 matches on one DVD or Video. They are on holidays this week but you can still send them an email about it and they will get back to you when they return.

Here is their website: http://www.users.bigpond.com/tennisvideos1/

Cheers :)

I think the AUS Open 2nd round 1998 Venus vs. Serena 1st set is great, great great :worship:

I think I have Serena's match against ASV from Eastbourne 1998 and some of her match against ASV from RG 1998. If you're interested send me a PM and I'll check the tapes to make sure they still work ok. I may hvae some other bits and pieces of matches from highlights programmes etc., but I'm not very organised with my marking up of tapes, so I would have to check! ;)

BTW, while we're on the subject, if anyone has the Serena vs. Vivi match from Wimbledon 1998, I would love a copy of that!! ;)

I know I have matches from 97-98 - I just haven't gone through my tennis videos is years :eek:

I think the earliest I have is Venus' first Grand Slam at the 1997 RG and of course I have all of her matches from the 97 US Open.

I have the 1998 Miami QF Hingis VS Serena:D! Martina saved 2 match points in the 3rd set, it was awesome:D!

I would love to see those matches too!!! I remember Serena-ASV at Eastbourne, I remember being so impressed, and loving the way Serena grunted!! Haha :lol:

I've got Serena-Vivi from Wimbledon that year too, but its a depressing match. Serena looks dis-interested and to be honest I'm not even sure she was that injured (she retired 4-1 down 2nd set) I just think it wasn't her day.

I also have Serena-van Roost from RG in 98. Serena was absolutely awesome that day, she won 6-1 6-1. When I watched her then I knew she'd be number 1.
