Very strange when a match point is decided with a ball which falls over he net.
Collect the matches, which ended that way.

1988 Wimbledon F: Graf d. Navratilova
1993 Chicago F: Seles d. Navratilova (Martina could put it back though, but was an open court for Seles.)
1995 Lipton early round: Werdel-Witmeyer d. Sanchez Vicario

the only one i can remember doesnt really count :lol:

it was the first round of wimbledon last year - eleni vs justine

justine hit the top of the net on her second serve and it went astray for a double fault.

thats as close as it gets for me :lol:
