i love it when someone serves an ace on match point (if its the one im rooting for, that is ;):p) and it happens more than you might think. every time a player wins a match on an ace, post it in this thread :p kind of like the "match points" thread

i will get the ball rolling

Miami Final - Svetlana Kuznetsova def. Maria Sharapova 6-4 6-3 (with an ace on match point)

Luxembourg Round of 16 - Agnieska Radwanska def. Venus Williams 6-3 6-0 (with an ace on match point)

Zurich Final - Maria Sharapova def. Daniela Hantuchova 6-1 4-6 6-3 (with an ace on match point)


you can also post matches that you remember were won with an ace :wavey:

For Steffi the 1992 Wimbledon Final against Monica and the 1989 Wimbledon final against Martina.
Mary, last year's San Diego Final against Ai Sugiyama.

That ace on match point against Seles in 1992 was the best, and I never get tired of hearing her yell "Ja!" just after she clicked the ball, knowing it wasn't coming back. It was an exclamation point to a match where she kept her composure and consistency over the course of a rain-delayed final that took nearly 6 hours to complete, in near darkness- and you could just feel the satisfaction Steffi felt cracking that last serve.

I remember a cool one, this year at the French. Aravene Rezai smacked a winner to set-up match point, and then hit an ace on MP during a match that was barely televised on ESPN2. The crowd roared and she was smiling and waving. She either lost the next round or the one after that. But I remember the ace and her/crowd reaction, it was awesome. Anyone remember?

It's a junior match, but Cavaday def Kucova with an ace. The point before was an absolutely amazing and gruelling rally that they were both exhausted from, then Naomi served a typical out wide lefty serve to end the match.

Not sure but didn't Vee hit about 2 or 3 aces in a row to close out the US OPEN semi against Momo back in 2001 or 2002? I am no stat queen that's for sure. Momo played a great match but Venus held serve and won the match. It was tense that hold.

Well Serena had a lot of those.

I'm definetely sure of the match Serena Williams vs. Zvonareva WTA Beijing 2004 semi-final, she ended that one with an ace.

I also thought Serena aced on match point in the fourth round against Patty Schnyder at the UsOpen 2004.

Jakeev
Oct 27th, 2006, 07:11 AM
My favorite ace-on-match point of all time: Zina Garrison's brilliant down the T ace against Steffi Graf in the 1990 Wimbledon semis.

That and her victory over Monica in the quarters had to have been two of Zina's greatest played matches.

But that beautiful ace. Still can see Zina's joy.
