good poll! i voted monica vs jennifer... becuase it's a guaranteed 3 setter, they have a history, they bring out the best in each other. jennifer knows she has to "come up with the goods on the run" or monica will flatten her, and monica knows she has to hit a lot of winners without a lot of errors because jennifer is an excellent retriever AND can control some points. plus, i LOVE blistering returns... and they do it better than anybody could dream.
all good choices though... but amelie v justine-- yawn.

Monica Seles vs Jennifer Capriati: Rivalry for over a decade, always great matches.
Monica Seles vs Serena Williams: A match-up that we rarely see, they grunt and attack on every ball. The last 2 matches were incredible.
Serena Williams vs Jennifer Capriati: The outcome has been predictable lately, but they always have 3 setters full of drama.
Serena Williams vs Venus Williams: The battle of the sisters, outcome predictable lately but interesting to see if Venus can change that.
Kim Clijsters vs Serena Williams: The battle for the real no.1.
Kim Clijsters vs Monica Seles: Can Monica stay undefeated against Kim? Interesting and rare match-up.
Justine Henin-Hardenne vs Serena Williams: After the controversy in Paris, this match-up will always be interesting.
Justine Henin-Hardenne vs Monica Seles: They have great matches.
Amelie Mauresmo vs Justine Henin-Hardenne: The battle of one handed backhands and finesse. Again, a rare match-up.
Anna Kournikova vs anyone: :lick: :drool:

Kim Clijsters vs Monica Seles because I would love to see Monica still beating Kim! :cool:

Kim/Monica.. the last match I saw between them was the Hopman Cup match. They were hitting some incredible angles, and I really loved the way both of them moved on the court. It was a beautiful match to watch.

I'd love to see one of the matches: serena vs. Justine
Two excellent, but totally different players, loads of emotion and a good rivalry!

I would love to see almost any one of these! Serena vs Jennifer, for example, is always a thrilling and gritty dogfight, but we know the outcome in advance.
I picked Amélie vs Justine, because aesthetically their games are beautiful to behold, and I love to watch something different than bash, bash, bash. But I would also love to see Venus pitted against all these players, but the only Venus option has her up against Serena. :(

Although I love Venus who is my #1 and Serena my #2 I had to choose Serena vs Capriati.. I wanted to be guarantee of a few perfanities/stare downs/rallies/3 sets and a Serena victory..
