Graf vs Navratilova 88 wimbledon final. I was 4 yo then. I didnt know any of them or the rules or the scoring but I still wanted the one girl to win a lot :o I asked her name and she was Steffi Graf and since then she became my fav. She still remains my all time fav. I didnt know much about tennis till 92 but i had a blind faith in steffi and i loved her.

1. Serena : first full match vs graf, in HK 99. that was the first match of that exhibition. that was its first year too. although i saw her play a point or two vs davenport in a news clip in 98 when she defeated Lindsay.

2. Henin: vs davenport in a USO 4rd, if i remember correct justine lost the match like 6-0 6-4 probably. it may be aussie but it was a match under lights.

3. Clijsters: wimbledon 99, 4th rd vs graf.

4. Hingis: her aussie 95, 1st round. hingis won that 6-0 7-5. star sports showed her as an upcoming player.

5. Davenport: Her first full match that i remember watching is vs sabatini in virginia slams 94 final. but i saw her various news clips before.

6. Capriati: vs graf in 92 olympic final :(

7. Dementieva: sf or qf of indian wells, it was vs davenport, then called evert cup in 2000. i fell in love with her innocence. :hearts:

8. Myskina: i heard about her a lot but her first complete match i saw was 2004 rg qf vs venus.

9. Jankovic: match vs myskina in wimbledon 2005 3rd round.

10. Seles: first match was 90' rg final. heard about her a lot but really come to know her might in 92 final when i finally started understanding tennis.

11. Sharapova: 2003 vs kim clijsters in some indoor tournament in same part of year which is now going on. kim won that tournie beating dokic in final.

12. Venus: vs spirlea in USO 97 sf. actually i saw her playing before, even a clip of her playing her first match in 96. she was hyped from starting but really noticed her in uso 97 and first full match was that sf.

1. Serena - Australian Open 1998, vs Venus, although I'd seen a clip of her defeating Spirlea.

2. Henin - Properly, not until Wimbledon 2001, when she defeated Raymond in round 3.

3. Clijsters - Properly, in the 4th round against Graf at Wimbledon, 1999. Although, I'd seen clips of her beating Coetzer in round 3.

4. Hingis - Vs Graf as a 14 year-old in the first round of Wimbledon in 1995.

5. Davenport - Wimbledon, 1994, when she was being talked about as a great player. Saw her in an early round against an unknown.

6. Capriati - Not until Wimbledon 1998, although I did watch her in videos from when she was young before that.

7. Dementieva - Olympic final vs Venus, 2000. Although, I'd seen clips of her before that.

8. Myskina - Edgbaston 2001, live. I can't recall seeing her play before that.

9. Jankovic - Wimbledon 2005, vs Myskina.

10. Seles - 1992, vs Navratilova at Wimbledon.

11. Sharapova - Saw clips of her at Wimbledon 2003, but didn't see her properly until she played Hantuchova in round 3, the following year.

12. Venus - Wimbledon, 1997, when she lost to Grzybowska.

1. Serena

Highlights: Indian Wells final versus Graf '99
Full match: versus MJ Fernandez at Roland Garros '99

2. Henin

US Open versus Kournikova. (I'm blanking on the year and the round at the moment. Was it 2000?)

3. Clijsters

Wimbledon '99 versus Graf

4. Hingis

Wimbledon '95 versus Graf in the first round.

5. Davenport

versus Mary Joe Fernandez at the Australian Open in '94, I think

6. Capriati

versus Navratilova in the quarters of Wimbledon '91. (I did, however, see clips of her '90 French semis against Seles and her '90 US Open 4R thrashing at the hands of Graf.)

7. Dementieva

US Open semis in 2000, iirc.

8. Myskina

Australian quarters against Clijsters, 2003. I saw it from the very last row of Rod Laver Arena. ;-)

9. Jankovic

The first full match of hers I remember watching is probably last year's Wimbledon duel against Venus Williams.

10. Seles

1989 French semis versus Graf.

11. Sharapova

2004 Wimbledon 4R(?) versus Sugiyama

12. Venus

I saw clips of Venus playing Graf in, I think, LA in 1996. The first full match of hers I saw was the US final in 1997.

Serena - 1998 AO R1 d. Spirlea 6-7 6-3 6-1 in the Rod Laver Arena
Henin - 1999 RG R2 l. to Davenport 3-6 6-2 5-7 on the Court Central, and I knew immediately there is a new great champion, when I saw the line-up I though the huge Davenport will double-bagel that little girl. Then watching the match I got extremely surprised by Henin, played so wonderfully from the line and went a lot to the net, also led 5-3 in the final set, but choked, and the routine of Davy won.
Clijsters - 99 Wimby vs. Steffi lost 2-6 2-6, nothing special.
Hingis - 94 Zürich first round vs. Patty Fendick 6-4 6-3, the only time I was rooting for Hingis when she was 14.
Davenport - I must have seen highlights of her in 93, the first comlpete match wich I was with her when beating Mary-Joe Fernandez 6-2 6-7 6-2 at the 4th round of AO 94 on the Centre Court.
Capriati - Wimby QF 92 vs Gaby 1-6 6-3 3-6 on the Centre Court.
Dementieva - 99 AO R2 vs. Hingis on the Centre court 3-6 2-6
Myskina - I only remember she had qiute long hair, when I 1st saw her, but when...?
Jankovic - 2003 Budapest QF l. to Maria Antonia Sanchez Lorenzo 4-6 6-4 3-6, she was very pissed of and argued a lot with the ballkids umpires.
Seles - 92 FO SF d. Gaby 6-3 4-6 6-4 I stared follow tennis with this match, I got a huge disappointment about the loss of Gaby.
Sharapova - d. Harkleroad 6-2 6-1 Wimby 2003 R1
Venus - 97 Wimby R1 lost to Magdalena Grzybowska 6-4 2-6 4-6 on the new Court No. 1. on the first Saturday playing this first-round-match.
