There is a thread on the 5 matches you wish your fav could have back and it got me depressed when I responded:sad: LOL!

So I decided to lighten the mood and give everyone a chance to list their fav's 5 or more best wins. I'll Start:)

Sammy:)

2002 Defeats number 4 seed Anne Kremer first round of Canberra:)

2002 As a wild card defeats Patty Schnyder in the second round of Miami in straight sets. This match was just a few weeks before Patty took out Serena.

2002 Defeats number 3 seed Schett in second round of Waikoloa to reach her second WTA QF. Saved match points in this one.

2003 As a qualifier takes out Sharapova (a WC that year) in the first round. Follows that up with a defeat of number 20 seed Suarez to reach the third round. This was at IW btw.

2003 In Bol she defeated Sprem, Wartusch, and Leon Garcia to reach her first tour level semi.

2003 In the first round at Wimbledon defeats number 25 seed Pistolesi in straight sets and then goes on to defeat Zuluaga in straight sets to achieve her best grand slam showing to date.

2004 In the first round of Rome takes out Raymond in three sets. Second round results pending;)

Lindsay....

1996 Olympics Final. She was the 9# seed and no one would give ANYTHING to Lindsay against Sanchez Vicario, but she proved she was mentally stronged and outplayed the Spaniard 7-6, 6-2
The three Slams finals....
And the 2000 Indian Wells final against Martina. That match was just awesome, for me as a fan at least. Being down 2-4 and winning 10 straight games :eek:

def. Zvonareva (twice) - Strausborg and Vienna
def. Smahsnova (on clay) - Vienna
def. Farina - Gold Coast
def. Kuznetsova - Miami
def. Zuluaga (on clay, straight sets)

Yes, she has a top10 win, but beating dokic doesn't quite make the cut ;)

2001 Gaz de France - first title in France
2003 Rome - SF win over Serena

2002 Wimbledon - I'd never seen her play better in QF win over Jen

Also have to mention 2nd round win over Morigami at Amelia this year. It was her first match back after her back injury and the death of her dad. Very emotional indeed.

Patty

Capriati - semi Charleston '02 (never seen her or anyone else play so well on clay)
Serena - Q/F Charleston '02 (didn't play that well but serena hardly lost a match)
Graf - 4th Round US Open '98 (beating graf in a GS means a lot)
Davenport - Final Zurich '02 (first tier I in some country)
Coetzer - 1st Rnd Roland Garros '98 (9-7 in the 3rd. not biggest name but she ranked no. 3 or there about at the time and this was when i became i loyal patty fan.

there are so many big wins eg davenport in charleston, beating amelie in aus open in 2000 after she struggled for so long and amelie won sydney beating hingis and davenport.

MARY PIERCE:

1) Martina Navratilova 6-1 3-6 6-4, Virginia Slims Championships 1993 - In the previous round she'd beaten Sabatini for her first career Top Ten win, and in the QFs took an even bigger scalp.

2) Steffi Graf 6-2 6-2 Roland Garros semi-finals 1994 - The defining match of Mary's career.

3) Martina Hingis 6-0 6-0 Toronto 1995 - Yes, Hingis was only 15, but that score!!!!

4) Serena Williams 6-2 6-1 Indian Wells 2000 - Mary in the zone: frighteningly good.

5) Conchita Martinez -Roland Garros Final 2000 - Mary's career goal achieved in style.

I'd also like to mention Mary's 6-2 6-4 win at Filderstadt, 2003 against her career nemesis, Jennifer Capriati.
