Matina Hingis v Steffi Graf - french open 99
Venus-spirlea-usopen 97
I don't know which match but I'd say the entire australian open 99- ( the venus bead incident with davenport; Amelie scandal with martina and Lindsay)

I was at work when all of these things happened and wished I could have seen them. Oh well.

Hands down I'd want to see the match of the century that made the front page of all the world's papers-Lenglen vs. Wills at Cannes in 1926. It was their only meeting :sad:

People paid hundreds of dollars for bleacher seats that were still being hammered when the match started. People who couldn't get in made holes in their rooftops to watch. One group rented a bus and stood on top to look over the fence.

You mean watching it live on the stadium?

I would like to be at that match of Kournikova-Graf at Eastbourne-98. After the second set, I would do something, like the usual English thing ( running naked around the court ) trying to change the chain of events and maybe Anna would not get that thumb injury. And then, after returning back to current time I would have found out that Anna is a mutiple Grand Slam champion in singles and #1. :)

Just one?!?! That's too cruel.

As a Monica fan, I'll resist the obvious answer and go with these:

Seles / Graf 1990 French Open Final
Seles / Graf 1992 French Open Final
Seles / Navratilova 1995 Return of the Champions Exhibition
Seles / Kim Po 1995 Canadian Open 2R
Seles / Coetzer 1995 Canadian Open Final
Seles / Graf 1995 US Open Final
The 2001 WTA Championship Final in Munich so I could heckle the WTA execs whenever I saw them.
