I was just watching some tapes to see which ones I want to tape over in preperation for the upcoming NA HC season (us fans have to get ready for tourneys too) and like usual I ended up watching the 2000 Hingis/Williams US Open semi...That has to be my favourites of all times. That is what I loved. How can you not miss Martina? Well, Hingis/Williams high quality matches are the best. So much at stake.

1) Venus/Martina US Open 2000
2) Serena/Martina US Open 99 - Only because it was the House of Williams first slam. I cant tell you how happy I was for her...
3) Serena/Martina US Open 2001
4) Serena/Davenport Estyles 2000
5) Venus/Jenn Miami 2001
6) Serena/Kim Indian Wells 2001 - She won inspite of...:bounce:

Serena-Martina US Open 2001

I had seen the match live (damn I miss no longer working for a cable company; I had a tv in my office.) I normally tape the CBS soaps to 3pm, so I got 90 percent of the match (wasn't worth resetting the VCR to not tape that day.) I came home and replayed the match because I was in awe; Serena destroyed Martina.

I pretty much love all of Vee's matches ( when she wins):D , but I especially favour

(1) Wimby 2000 final against Lindsay
(because it was her 1st slam win.. loved her attitude on center court ) :bounce:

(2)US Open semi final against Martina Hingis

(3) Ericsson 2001 final against Jennifer Capriati

(4) Amelia Island 2002 final against Justine Henin
(My new favourite --- anyone who thinks that Venus's volleys suck should watch that tape :P)
Special mention (although she did not win) :sad: to the '99 final against Steffi at Wimby and the US open semi against Hingis.

I don't particularly remember Serena's matches (unless she plays against my Vee), but who can forget 2001 US Open semi final ? I just love the look on her opponent's face when Serena was showing no mercy... <grins evilly>

Yes, I liked that one too (Venus did get her clock cleaned) but man, did it make her mad...If that's what it took to go on and win two more slams that year, I LOVE IT...:kiss:

That is by far their best match. I liked the 99 USO semi but I still cant watch it without feeling very mad...Venus did redeem herself in 2000 though...:p
