For me, it was the Novotna-Graf Wimbledon Final in 1993. It was filled with so many highs and lows. There were also a few classic Seles-Graf Finals of course, but that one sticks out in my head :)

Well, I've only been a tennis fan since Wimbledon 2000. The best for me was '01 French Open Final. Capriti and Clijsters, 12-10 in the third. So much drama...I thought Kim was gonna win for a second.

Just about makes it, when Gaby won the US.Open in 1990!:D

I also enjoyed the Wimbledon final in 1991 when Gaby played Steffi, but not the result!:sad: Oh no! Once anyone mentions this match I can see Gaby missing that backhand volley.:eek:

For quality, Graf def. Sánchez-Vicario Wimbledon '95.
For emotion and expectation, Novotna def. Tauziat, Wimbledon '98.
For sheer drama, Graf def. Hingis, Roland Garros '99 and Graf def. Novotna, Wimbledon '93.

I really ought to say 1990 US open but I never saw it :(.

French open tends to produce good finals - my favourites would be either 1999 (Hingis-Graf drama) or 1996 (oh Arantxa played so well :sad: ).

Thus far, it seems as though ppl think that the FO produced the most memorable GS Finals in the 1990s...BTW hello rollo :) I'll try to commit myself to the message board in future, but I've had so many distractions in my life :D
Best.
