The tour right now lacks this type of excitement.

This one I just recently found: a clip from 1988 French Open where Steffi Graf won love-love. It may not fall into the category of an "exciting match" by virtue of the scoreboard and the the time it took to play, but (being a Graf fan, :eek: :worship: )

you're not watching the right matches buddy :)
the excitment lies evrywhere to be found in tennis. i had a terrific time at the 25Ks here, with some tight heart-attacking matches.
but obviously with Graf out - some of the most exciting points are out with her.

Wow - I forgot how cocky Venus was back then. Calling her own lines, and all that attitude after she won...Damn ! there's a little 'Andy' in her !

those matches between legends and young champios are great to watch:worship:
sadly nowadays we don't get any of those:o

Steffi's movement, backhand, forehand were all tremendous:bowdown:
she could hit a terrific volley,a reliable serve...she just put her opponents under pressure all the time, changing directions, pace and spins:)

Vee and Ree back in the old days played with so much faith and commitment - that's what you'd like to watch all the time:p

Why am I not surprise at these so call hometown people cheering at every error 17 yro Venus is making and cheering for the forign player. This is the stuff that V&S has been putting up with all their tennis life. No wonder these two women go on with their lives and don't give a damn about the WTA tourn and the dilema of women's tennis today.....Hooray for V&S.
