In the opinion of many, the semifinal is the the best and the most exciting round of the Grand Slam tournament. Did 2006 produce great Slam Semifinals?

If so, which one was your favorite?

Australian Open: Henin-Hardenne d. Sharapova 4-6 6-1 6-4
Roland Garros: Kuznetsova d. Vaidisova 5-7 7-6(5) 6-2

I was just happy to see Nicole in a GS SF. :)

I've only seen 3 of these, so my vote is Mauresmo def. Sharapova at Wimbledon :)

Justine has a knack for making Russian babes cry on matchpoint with a backhand down the line winner....and that AO Semi vs. Sharapova is no exception. OuCh! :) That was the highest quality Semi all year long imo.

AO: Henin-Hardenne def. Sharapova IMO

Not much competiton either, most of the other semis were average.

I thought the Mauresmo - Sharapova one was good, 1st set was high quality, not a patch on the 05 semi though :sad:

I enjoyed Justine-Maria, Maria-Amelie and Justine-Jelena.

On reflection, I voted Justine-Maria in Oz.

Henin-Hardenne/Sharapova at the Aussie Open.

lol, the only good semifinal this year was Justine/Maria at the AO. Mauresmo/Sharapova Wimbledon was tense but the quality was pretty bad.

All the rest were boring and predictable, or just low quality.

Aussie Open SF - Justine d. Maria. That gets the thumbs up! Great match with high quality tennis in it. Some of the winners that both players hit were just breathtaking to watch.

For me, it's between Justine/Maria at the AO and Justine/Kim at Wimbledon.

Justine/Kim at Wimbledon is underrated because everyone expected the result but it was still very high quality. I voted for that one because I thought Justine/Maria would get lots of votes.

Masha v Henin this year at the AO was awesome one of the best matches i have seen they bring out the best in each other, some of those rallies were just crazy, Sharapova hitting the lines and Henin just kept getting the balls back.

Jankovic/Henin-Hardenne was pretty entertaining, only the first 2 sets though.. so i would say that one

yes i agree with u there. 1st two sets were just top notch quality but the 3rd set wasn't (due to Jelena breaking down mentally).

I am hoping we see better quality matches at the business end of the Slams in 2007.

Best semi-final of 2006: Amelie v Maria at Wimbledon
Would have voted Henin v Jankovic at USO (had the result gone the other way :devil:)

Man, I am so glad Clijsters is leaving at the end of 2007 ... she gave us nothing but craptastic semi's this year.

Enna vs. Masha

None compared to Serena-Masha AO '05, Venus-Masha '05 Wimby, and Clijsters-Sharapova USO '05. :worship: @ the Classics.
