Me it's the 2001 Australian Open quarterfinal, Hingis VS Serena. Simply too good :p!

I guess winning 90% of points from your opponents errors is "schooling" :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

1985 French Open Final....Evert-Lloyd d. Navratilova 6-3, 6-7, 7-5. :D

Still the best women's match of all time...really! Evert-Lloyd was down 0-40 deep in the third set (4-5?), and she came to the net to make it to deuce. I remember Chris not even looking at Navratilova because Martina, being her usualy bitchy self :rolleyes:, was being extremely animated. Simply awesome, Chrissie!!!!! :worship:

I'm having a tough time deciding between these:

Seles Def. V. Williams 2002 QF AO
Capriati Def. Hingis 2002 F AO
Graf Def. V. Williams 1999 QF Wimby
Dementieva Def. V. Williams 2004 QF Nasdaq
Henin-Hardenne Def. S. Williams 2003 RG Semis

I think I liked Monica's win the best though

Definitely, this is the best match ever.....

S. Williams d. A. Mauresmo - French Open QF 2003

A top player should never be schooled in such a way. Mauresmo just proved how inferior she was that day.

V. Williams d. J. Henin-Hardenne - Amelia Island F 2002

The reason why Justine is terrified of Venus to this day!!!

One of my all time favorite matches:
Serena def. Venus at 2003 Oz Open Final! It was a great match from both! Venus played extremely well in the second set and forced Serena to win the championship! It was a great match. I'm so glad I bought the tape. It was awesome.

Also, I love:
All Seles-Graf matches
All Seles matches
All Graf matches
All Navratilova Wimbledon matches
All Williams-Williams matches
All Navratilova-Evert matches as well!
