I only watched the first set and it was really error filled in the beginning. I turned it off after Venus blew her lead :o. But yeah, unless the 2nd set was amazing, it wasn't the best match of the year.

A chokefest on one end of the court is called the match of the year??? Oh lord.

The Jelena-Serena match in the final was far better quality but there wasn't nearly the same amout of winners, but there were less errors too. I thought that match was better than the WS QF by far.

It was the most traumatic match i've ever watched as Vee fan, even above watching Ted Watts screw her over in '04:sad::lol:

I was up til like 3:30 watching Venus squander 10 set points. Woe!:sad::o

Terrific drama though, even if for quality, the Wimby final was far better.

If anything, it got worse. I've been surprised at the amount of praise the quality of this match got, because that was not what I was thinking when I watched it.

If they had to pick an all-Williams match, the Wimbledon final was better.

Terrible choice. The final of USO and Wimbledon were better. How one of the worse chokes in recent years can be called the best match of the year is beyond me.

ITA!! that was the most gutting lose EVER!! what was even worse was how happy Venus was after the match i was like WTF Vee. that really gave me the impression she didnt want to squander Serenas chances at the last slam of the year since she took Wimbldeon from her. But she bounced back real well.

What made the match great tho (to sum people lol) was the unbelievable tension i dont no how the sister did it i was shaking jus watchin lol. Arthur ash completley full everyone was waiting all week to see it. The thousands of people outside lined to to get in... it was crazy especially the match :mad:

The Wimbledon FInal involved choking (in both sets no less) and then a tantrum from Serena's part acting like an ass to hand the match to Venus.. Yeah how convinient Venus winning being a better match..

Although i agree that Jankovic Serena Usopen final was a great match.

Here you go again, another Venus loss on purpose cos she wanted Serena to win :weirdo: Serena is never good enough beat Venus normally? Vee tried her hardest, and probably should have converted, but Serena was amazing on virtually all those sps.

It's certainly a defensible choice. It's not like year had a match like the '05 Wimbledon final.

Venus is like that after every defeat, she's incredibly gracious whoever she's playing, and however she loses.

terrible choice, the us open final was better. even the dubai qtr final between henin and fran was much better than it.

Serena was the better player that day..and it shows why she's a much better player than Venus overall. She has not only the mental strength to do well at crunchtime but also a game that doesnt fall apart when she needs it most.

I still dont see how the USO final and Wimbledon final were worse. Wimbledon final had less drama but better quality with positive winner-UE ratio for both and great stats and overall play. Anyway, I dont want to make this another Serena fans vs. Venus fans thread. Both Serena and Venus were subpar that day.

Wimbledon final was a better match between the sisters, but the US Open final was a better match overall I think.
