I have never seen the Australian Open 2003 womens singles final, or the WImbledon 2002 final, between the sisters. But I heard it was an awesome match.

I have never seen Justine Henin-Hardenne vs. Jennifer Capriati or Venus Williams at Wimbledon 2001 :o

And I've never seen Justine Henin-Hardenne vs. Lindsay Davenport in 2003 Australian Open 4th round :o But I'm dying to see these three matches so if anyone has it, please share with me ;)

I can't think of too many matches, especially slam matches, that I haven't seen. If I missed them when they were on I usually find a way to get my hands on it. I'm not really into watching matches where my favorites lose, but I think I might like to see the 1991 US Open SF (Martina def. Steffi). I'm not sure why I missed it, but I was never too eager to see it once Steffi lost- I can deal with it now.

I always wanted to see the Beijing final where Serena def. Kuznetsova (not a slam but still a match I've never seen and would like to.

Hingie

I would really like to see the 1996 Women's Doubles at Wimbledon when Hingis won with Sukova as a 15 year old (i think that was the year).

That would have been cool.

I wish I could have seen Daniela come back to defeat Pin (I think :confused: ) in the first round of the 2004 US Open 1-6 7-6 7-6! It was so important for Danka to get some wins again.

It was hard, even though I'm a bigger Serena fan. By Aussie '03 I was starting to root for Venus against Serena, it was hard seeing The F*cking Venus Williams being eaten for lunch 4 times in a row.

Serena beating Hingis easily at either US Open 2001 or 2002. Can't recall which year it was but the scoreline wasn't even close and McEnroe raved about Serena's dominance of Hingis.

Monica Seles (http://www.geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/seles/) defeating Steffi Graf for her first Grand Slam title in the French Open 1990 final. I didn't start following tennis until 1992, but I plan to order Monica's pre-1992 Grand Slam finals from Tennis Videos International (http://www.users.bigpond.com/tennisvideos1/).

Oh - and Monica's classic match with Jennifer Capriati in the US Open 1991 semi-finals.

Probably Graf/Hingis FO 99... I started getting into tennis just a little after Graf retired so I never got to see her play much... except flashbacks or highlights:( That's just a match that was close & was a huge win for Graf... & Hingis acting up :devil:

edit: oh & I'd like to see Venus/Spirlea(sp.) USO SF in ?97? featuring *THE BUMP* That's the only part we ever see:)

I would have to say the most exciting grand slam match I ever watched was the French Open final of 1992. Just an epic battle between two of the strongest willed competitors the game has seen. I have always been a Graf fan, but my hat came off to the always gritty Seles that day in a match that deserved 2 winners.
