Well, I have seen so many matches in my life that are extremely hard to classify, as 'best', for me, is not just the quality of the game, but also the emotions involved, the tension and how I feel about the players on court.

This year, I think the best match was Aravane Rezai [:hearts:] against Agnes Szavay. She played such amazing tennis in the first 1˝ sets :bowdown: Aravane really impressed me that day, and I was already a big fan ;)

Was this in the French Open qualifying round, where Aravane won 6-1 6-4?

Yes!

Two of my favourite players too :awww: Agnes actually became a favourite during Roland Garros, as she is so sweet. She played really well against Andrieux, but just had no answer against Aravane. Not until Aravane started to make a few more mistakes in the course of the second set. Before that, everything she hit was just dead on :worship:

When I was 18 I got to see the Martina/Hana U.S. Open final, the only time I have actually been to a Slam final.

It's been 21 years but I can still remember the atmosphere and how splendid those two players were that day.

I have seen tons of matches on tv. Last year's Wimbledon final for example is a classic to me as is the 92 French Open final.

But that 85 U.S. Open still is the best I think I have seen.

In terms of atmosphere, I must say the 1997 Fed Cup Final between The Netherlands and France was truly amazing :worship:

The play, not so much :p

I have to say last years Wimbledon final and the french open Jen beat Kim I think is was 10-8 in the thrid. Great comeback from Jen. The final set was amazing. I also have to say Mary/Lena last year at the US Open was a great match.

1/2 Venus vs Martina at USOPEN 2000; when venus'dad left the court because her daughter was about to lose. venus played incredibly and made a come back to finally win the match. she jumped evrywhere, lol 'it's unbelievable!'. It was a tense and good match, i think venus has jumped til her hotel room that day!

Hmmm, I have a pretty poor memory for tennis so the only ones I can remember are:
-Justine vs Capriati in the USO semi a couple of years ago
-Lena D vs Davenport in the USO QF last year (?)
-2005 Fed Cup final, Dementieva/Safina d. Mauresmo/Pierce (that was less than a year ago and I don't know if I have the right players!)

Pour moi, c'est le quart de finale Sampras - Agassi lors de l'US Open 2001

Pendant quatre sets, aucun des deux joueurs ne perd son service : 6-7(9), 7-6(2), 7-6(2), 7-6(5) pour Sampras. Au total, on compte 133 points gagnants pour 57 fautes directes. :worship:

Un classique malheureusement révolu :sad:

Lindsay d. Maria 6-0 6-0. It was the most entertaining and satisfying match for me and that's what counts when judging whether a match was good.

Justine vs Capriati (US Open 2003 SF) :drool:

A Belgian against the entire US... and she prevailed... just. Really a classic match that I can watch over and over again ;)

A match where one of the players (Lindsay) hit a whopping 65 UE's is one of your "best matches" huh? :haha:

The two best matches I have ever seen ended in a bitter way for me. :lol: But I can't lie, I have to say they were two of the best matches I've seen.
Venus vs Lindsay Wimbledon F 2005
Capriati vs JHH USO SF 2003
An underrated one was Lindsay vs Alicia Molik AO QF 2005. It was really good.

And I was forgetting! :haha: Can't believe it. THE best match I've watched, where there was intensity, drama and quality was the AO SF 2005, Serena vs Sharapova :drool: At least this one went my way ;) :devil:

If you are looking for best ever try to locate and see first set of Seles vs Serena Williams at Canadian Open semifinal some years ago. Serena won that one 7-6!

That question is too hard, and I have forgotten too many great matches. Two stand out in my mind, though: Goolagong's first Wimbledon win, and of course--the 1985 French Open final, which I can never see enough.

Graf Hingis 4/6 7/5 6/2 Roland Garros F 1999 (best slam final for the internauts in the poll of the WTA)





Graf Seles Roland Garros F 1992 (best slam final for the worldwide press according the poll of the WTA)

Why? :shrug:

It was really good tennis. And read my post before. It's not just about level of play. Surely many matches have been played in which the level of play was higher, but this match was special for me and qualifies as best tennis match of 2006.

:inlove:
Sep 1st, 2006, 06:51 PM
MisterMan I didn't say it was my favorite match. :rolleyes: I haven't even seen it.

Monica Seles vs Steffi Graf Roland Garros 1992 and Venus Williams vs Martina Hingis US Open 2000.

Although I wouldn't class it as one of the "greatest matches" of all time, but one that no-one seems to talk about is Alina Jidkova-Stephanie Dubois Quebec City. :p I watched this and was amazed! Great fight from Alina and some very nice ball striking!

Seles vs. Graf - FO final in the early 90ies. Don't remember the year, but it was the best match EVER.
And Marat vs. Fed. in AO05 semifinal. Also, half of the Agassi-Sampras matches :)

That's why I don't like Roger domination - he is only a half of a formula, there should be one more genuis to give us another magical rivalry.
