I know this is probably revisiting an old thread, but it's interesting to hear everyone's favorite match point- and since the game is still in motion- you may have a new one. Here's mine:

1992 Wimbledon Final: Graf hits an ace, and yells "JA!"

Oh yeah. You know, I still wonder why Monica didn't go down the line with her pass, she more or less hit it straight to Steffi- not that I'm complaining, because the storm was right there after the match was over- what an incredible award ceremony!

Wimby 2000 Venus vs. Hingis. Venus hits a 118 mph ace out wide and then yells, UUUUHHHHHAAAAA!!! and jumps in the air. That ace sounded like a gunshot. I may have a video clip of it.

Aaaah. I found it.

You mean that bad line call on an attempted passing shot? :fiery:

most recently:
Oz Open 2001 I think Hingis serves to Jenny's backhand and jenny just wallops it back for a winner, no?

Wimby 2000 is right up there too.

... I gotta go back and watch Knizzles video again.. >

Hey, I remember being genuinely happy for her- even though I don't think she thought it was good, and Graf was always a fair player when it came to line calls. The celebration smile was great! :bounce:

yeah jenny hit a winning backhand down the line!
But I loved her 2002 matchpoint when Hingis looked so devasted , though she hit quite a good wide serve, cappy hit an amazing forehand straight into the right corner---- priceless!

I'm not trying to start anything, but I don't think that Capriati hit that ball that hard at the AO 2001 match point. Either Hingis had given up or maybe Jenny's disguise was too good on the backhand because Hingis seemed frozen.
