2003 followed by 2007 followed by 2006 (only because Mauresmo won her first slam).

2007..that was one of the best smack downs of the century...pure determination and she did it for her sister that passed.

In terms of competitiveness, definitely 2002

In terms of a display, 2007

The most emotional one was the 2002, Hingis never recovered from those 4 match points...

Amelie winning was great also, but someone had to retire to spoil her party...

2005 was the greatest until 6-2 3-3... after that, it was the most awful one

It's absurd how many people voted for the mediocre 2008 affair or the retirement(!) over the 2003 final which was competitive, excellent quality and one of the defining matches of the decade :p

I've been a fan of tennis since 2002 and have only seen three AO finals :o :lol:

2006, 2007, 2008. Out of those, 2008 was the most competitive and Masha won! So that's my favorite :)

To be fair, you said 2007, which was a whitewash, over 2002, which was dramatic and competitive.

For me, it's far and away 2002.

Either people really LOVE a good ol' fashioned beatdown or they really hate Maria :lol:

I'll go with 02. Although 1993 Seles d Graf remains my favourite AO final that I've seen, if we go beyond the 10 years.

What's even more shocking is how many the 2008 Final has. But I guess a lot of posters here probably weren't even watching tennis in 2003 or have never seen the match.

How about "they all suck"?

Surprising how many people think highly of 2007 final. Sure, Serena was playing great, but overall, it was embarrassing for WTA - Serena was something like 20kg overweight and huffing and puffing when she lumbered around the court.
