I have to think about this but for sure Venus and Henin USO 2007 would be in it. Such High quality tennis.

For Hingis, probably her US Open Semi with Venus in 2000.

Missed smash. :sad:

JJ's loss to Venus at the US Open last year. It was such a great match from both of them that I didn't even feel too sad JJ lost.

The one with the highest quality tennis was Wimbledon 05 but I still don't 'like' that match. Lena at US that year was a pretty cool one although memories of Wimbledon were still very painful at the time.

Hmm, probably the 2000 US Open SF to Venus, amazing tennis until the mini brain fart at 5-3.

Apr 11th, 2008, 06:01 PM
Martina: 2000 US Open SF to Venus
Justine: 2001 Wimbledon F to Venus, or 2007 Miami F to Serena.

And I think rightfully Venus and Serena's best losses have been to Martina and Justine too. As favourites of their rivals, I'd say:
Venus: 1999 USO semi to Martina, or 2007 USO semi to Justine
Serena: 2001 AO QF to Martina

I'd probably say to Clijsters, 57 61 62 in the Antwerp SF. Fantastic match from both players, the 62 score is unforgiving for the quality and fight in that set, plus the first set was SO good from both too.

Lena: Henin def. Dementieva Stuttgart 07 (46,46) Lena had BPs for 5-all in both sets but I saw some high quality from her so i was happy

Justine: Bartoli def. Henin Wimby 07 16,75,61 It was the best match I've ever seen, I love the match. I didn't mind Justine losing because it was such a breath-taking performance from Marion. I was speechless and happy for her. never mind Justine, you'll win it some time..

Yeah, I remember that match - the scoreline doesn't flatter it, because it was actually very close and both of them played extremely well.

Lindsay's 'best loss' was the 05 Wimbledon final, though honourable mention goes to the 2001 US Open QF.

For Tsveti - probably the match against Henin this year 7-6(4) 3-6 1-6 :sad: Tsveti was 3-1 up in the second set, but after that Henin just showed why she's #1.


Other notable - 6-4 2-6 5-7 and 6-3 4-6 1-6 against Jankovic in 2 consecutive weeks 2 years ago... Seems Tsvetana just can't win important matches :(

2007 YEC Final

I totally agree, that match was high quality, from start to finish, and Sharapova def should have won, she played much better!!

...My pick is def Graf def Venus 6-2 4-6 6-4 in Wimby Quater :sad:

.......Oh, and Mauresmo def Venus 6-4 in the 3rd after V lead 4-2, in Antwerp, preventing V from obtaining, the much coveted Diamond-studded racket!! :fiery:

mary pierce - her YEC loss to momo in the final, great tennis and the hug at the end between them showed that while competitors on the court they were still friends and mary seemed so happy for momo.

anna chakvetadze - dubai 05 or 06 when davenport won 7-5 in the 3rd.

I think clijsters 'best' loss was against lindsay R4 wimbledon 2005
I didn't see the match (stupid exams :mad: ) but I remember everyone telling what a great match that was

as for daniela, well, she played superbe against ivanovic SF 2008 AO for one set, very high level. but lateron she made more errors. well, if she 'd have played like in the first set it wouldn't be a loss so yeah ... think I'll pick that one

Evert: loss to Navratilova 1981 Aussie Open final (6-7, 6-4, 7-5)

Martina Nav: loss to Steffi 1987 French Open final (6-4, 4-6, 8-6)

Steffi: loss to Seles in 1992 French Open final (a classic by any standards)

Venus: loss to Steffi in 1999 Wimbledon Qtrs (the standard of play began and stayed high, despite the rain delays, and you watch it now and recognize it was an extended handing-of-the-torch from one grass-court-ruler to another)

Serena: loss to Hingis in 2001 Aussie Open Qtrs (what folks have already said)

The Miami '06 Sf with Tati and Maria was one of the best matches I've ever seen. It was so dramatic and so high quality. I've never seen a crowd get so into a match (and so anti-Maria)! It will go down in history as an amazing match, to true tennis fans. The best game of the match was at 6-3, 5-3 where Tatiana saved four match points and each one was a super-long rally. Just a breathtaking display from both players. Anyone who hasn't seen it really should. The game I was referring to is on YouTube, thanks to "Box."

:eek: as a Justine fan, you loved that match??? Justine didn't play well, so this can never be the best match she lost...

I thought the SF at the Masters of 2003, against Amelie, was a high quality match. I think it's the only match where I wasn't really disappointed, because I really enjoyed that match, with both players reaching a great level. Just a pity it took so much from Amelie that she never reached that level in the final.

Serena def. Shahar in AO QF. Great match! one of the best last year!
Another vote for that one. An epic struggle in an uncharted territory for her against a better player from 1-4 down in the decider to serving for the match at 6-5, getting within two points from the finish line. Who knows when such an opportunity will present itself again :awww:

I would probably have to go with (for Kim) her 2001 loss at Roland Garros against Capriati 16 64 12-10. Both players gave it their all and put their heart into it. I didn't watch it, but it was supposed to be extremely exciting. It definitely changed Kim's career as well. Her loss against Lindsay in Wimbledon 2005 was also pretty good tennis. And Antwerp was by far one of her most memorable losses (2007 against Mauresmo), what with all the emotion and what not.
