Since we are still on the topic in some threads.....here are a list of my favorite on-court celebrations in Grand Slam finals.

1. Venus Williams: 2005 Wimbledon. I keep saying it but I actually had a hard time staying sad about Lindsay losing because of her pure joy last weekend.

2. Serena Williams: 1999 U.S. Open. The surprise from Serena's face after match point said it all. The pure shock and the fact she had no idea how to react was totally priceless.

3. Hana Mandlikova: 1985 U.S. Open. One of Hana's greatest victories, especially over Martina Navratilova. Hana had few great moments against Martina and Chris Evert but that celebration in 85 was a gem.

4. Martina Navratilova: 1987 Wimbledon. One of my favorite Martina victories. When Graf dumped Martina's serve in the net, I never jumped so high watching Martina in pure joy. She had been having it tough up til then so it was a wonderful thing to see.

5. Lindsay Davenport: 1998 U.S. Open. It was her first Grand Slam final and she won the title. Just pure joy on that face. I bet that victory is probably still one of Linds' most special titles in her career.

Well, Sharapova reaction is not really particular as many others players was more :crazy: and like she pose with the trophy like a supermodel but others have huge smile and jump and looks :silly:. I think to be on knee was a half fake but the things with the cell was fake...

So Venus, Steffi...
