Venus - Best
Hardcourt: US open 00 beat Hingis 6-3 4-6 7-5 a real classic, San Diego 01 beat Seles 6-2 6-3 she was brill that day
Absolutely Agree! Vintage Venus Williams--she refused to lose.

Clay: RG 02 beat Seles 6-4 6-3 one of her cleaner clay court battles
Absolutely great. Beat one of the all time clay court greats.

Grass: Wimbledon 05 Final beat Davenport 4-6 7-6 9-7 just brilliant and Wimbledon 05 Semi beat Sharapova 7-6 6-1, unbelievably intense stuff
Enough said. But the match that truly showed her love for tennis and what she is made of was the Wimbledon SF match again Clijsters where she recovered, despite reinjuring her abs. Again, she refused to lose.

Carpet: YEC 02 beat Seles 7-5 6-4 good match
Ok. But Venus on carpet--not that many great memories for me.

Venus - Worst losses
Hardcourt - Aus Open 06 lost to Pironkova 6-2 0-6 7-9 lots of errors but Tsveti played well i thought too
That and 6-1, 6-1 loss to Hingis. Still don't get it!

Clay - RG 05 lost To Karatancheva 3-6 6-1 1-6 just horrendous from vee and the match was poor too neither had more than 10 winners
I'd pick French Open Final '02. Loss her chance to pocket RG crown and opened the door to the Serena Slam.

Grass - Wimbledon 04 lost to Sprem 6-7 6-7, Sprem played well but Vee just wasnt hitting the ball that hard i thought and had chances but the free point was bad
Enough said. Venus always has to make history at Wimbledon. :lol:

Carpet - Moscow 02 lost to maleeva 6-2 1-6 6-7
Maleeva really had Venus' number on carpet.

Among the other worse losses were Antwerp Final 2005 and U.S. Open 2005 QF: no reason for her to lose either, being up a set and a break in both. :fiery:

Martina Hingis
best wins
hard: def. serena 6-2 3-6 8-6 Oz 01 -- best match ever! :bowdown:
def. venus 6-1 4-6 6-3 USO 99 -- better shotmaking, higher quality than 2000 :p

clay: def. venus 6-4 7-6 (?) RG 98, gave her a real clay lesson
def. seles FCC 97 7-6 in the third, absolutely stunning match

carpet: def. seles 4-6 6-4 6-4 YEC 2000, superb match, hingis crying at the end
def. sharapova 6-1 6-3 Tokyo 2005, cleanest match since comeback :)
def. davenport 7-5 in the third in Zurich i believe, or was it filderstat? back in 2000, it was the best match the two have played in their long history, winners everywhere

worst losses
hard: lost to frazier 3-6 3-6 (?) in 2000, just :tape:
lost to seles 4-6 2-6 US open 2002, making it obvious that retirement was near

grass: lost to virginia ruano pascual 3-6 1-6 in the most lacklustre match of her career

clay: lost to venus 6-4 5-7 4-6 in rome 2006 in the worst performance of her comeback, playing both passive and sloppy

at first I have to find who s my fave, I don t any in particular, I just love THE GAME that's better and every match can be good

I'm trying with Mary, because I had to eat meat because of her... :tape: what a painful memory :devil: but I also lived great matches :drool:

Best wins :

Clay : RG 94 def. Steffi Graf 6/2 6/2

Hard : Indian Wells 2000 : def Serena Williams : 6/2 6/1

Grass : hard to tell : maybe the double bagel over Cargill at Wimbly 2003, that's not so impressive but Mary was in a terrible slump after RG 2003 and that match was the beginning of her come back on her way to the 4th round

Indoor : many matches at the masters : I'd pick the victory over Lindasy last year in LA, that was a good butchery! ;) , but very close are her victories over Hingis , Navratilova, Sabatini and Graf at the same competition!

Worst losses :

a lot of... :( I'll write the most painful

Clay : Roma 2002 : 6/0 6/0 against Capriati

Hard : Australian Open, 1st round lost to Likhovtseva 6/4 6/4

Grass : losing in straight sets against Tatarkova in 1998 I think :tape: :tape: :tape:

Indoor : end of 2004, terrible stuff :fiery: ,injured and lost against Mamic, Randriantefy and Zuluaga, can t pick just one...

yeah but before the match there was only talk of upset, so a straight-set beating was a nice way to silence the critics :)

Was 6-3 6-4. And yup it was a tennis lesson, Hingis was always up the whole match, Venus seemed lost all day long, i actually asked myself how Venus made the Rome 98 final a three setter :p.

Hard: Steffi Graf 6-2 7-6 Usopen 90 Final
Graf Boca Raton 1991 6-4 7-6

Clay: Seles 6-3 6-2 1991 Rome, Rome 1992 7-5 6-4 or any Amelia Island Final vs Graf :p

Grass: Tough one, lets say Capriati 6-4 6-4 in 1991 to reach the final of Wimbledon.

Indoors: Graf 6-4 6-4 Masters 1990 SF.
Navy 7-6 6-1 (dont remmember score) in Masters 1987

Worst loses:
Hard:Werdel 6-4 6-4 Australian Open 1995, it ruined her last real chance of winning a major.
Date Miami 1995 1-6 7-6 7-6. Worst match i saw from her, hit around 60 unforced errors horrible choking.

Clay: Mary Joe Fernandez 1-6 7-6 10-8, a great match indeed, Mary Joe simply refused to lose, some people blame Gaby, but the ones who saw it knows that Mary Joe took it to a different level, Gaby had 5 match points and choked only one with a double fault, in the others Mary Joe played really well, i remember Mary Joe had about 60 winners for the day, Gaby around 40. Still this match ended Gaby´s desire.
Also loses to Girardi 3-6 7-6 6-3 in hilton head 1995 another choke after the Miami choke :lol: Poor Gaby :( her mind was already out if it. :sad:

Grass: Fairbank Nideffer in 89? not sure it was 6-4 6-3, did not watched but considering Gaby´s ranking it was a huge upset.

Indoors:Werdel 3-6 6-3 7-5 Tokio 93 , Kotcha 6-3 7-6 Tokio 94 , Philly 1993 Frazier 3-6 6-2 7-5. geez those matches.

For me its

Best wins by Jelena Dokic

1999 Italian Open Thrid Round Dokic def Venus 6-2 6-1, Never seen the match but was excellent result to get to tier 1 QF and supposedly on her worst surface.

1999 Wimbledon First round Dokic def Hingis 6-2 6-0, Jelena dominated Hingis from back of court and really pushed number 1 all over court.

1999 Wimbledon Fourth Round Dokic def Pierce 6-4 6-3, Jelena dominated Pierce again and as a qualifer made history by making QF to play another qualifer in this round we all know what happened.

2001 Italian Open Final Dokic def Mauresmo 7-6 6-1, First final and first win on tour, especially in tier one final, dominated with powerful strokes and preying on Mauresmo's fragile mindspace at that time.

2001 French Open First Round Dokic def Gerzi 6-0 6-0, well what else can be said 32 minutes of flawless tennis leaving Gerzi wondering if this was a nightmare she just got ripped apart by power.


Worst losses by Jelena Dokic

2000 Australian Open Second Round Kuti-Kis def Dokic 6-1 2-6 6-3, Really Jelena what cmon Kuti-Kis, and what she said after the match is true isn't it, Jelena did get revenge a year later at Italian Open 2001 6-3 6-3.

2003 US Open Second Round Pierce def Dokic 6-2 6-7 7-6, Jelena lead 5-1 final set and couldnt put Mary away it was a nightmare seeing this match slip away from Jelena. Really for me seeing this match it was the beginning of the end for Jelena, she looked so out of sorts at the end.

2004 Tokyo Semi Final Davenport def Dokic 6-0 6-1, Jelena was in shock and Lindsay just dominated from first to last point Jelena never got look in.

2006 ITF 25k Qualifying First Round Barriatz Punzo def Dokic 7-5 7-5, really enough said what was going on with Jelena that day.

Just something to add to those who've been doing Serena's best wins. I would probably put Serena's defeat of Hingis 6-3 6-2? in the 2001 US Open Semifinal as one of her best hardcourt wins, especially for how well she served.

Martina Hingis
best wins
hard: def. serena 6-2 3-6 8-6 Oz 01 -- best match ever! :bowdown:
def. venus 6-1 4-6 6-3 USO 99 -- better shotmaking, higher quality than 2000 :p

grass: def. novatna 2-6 6-3 6-3 wimbledon '97

clay: def. venus 6-4 7-6 (?) RG 98, gave her a real clay lesson
def. seles FCC 97 7-6 in the third, absolutely stunning match

carpet: def. seles 4-6 6-4 6-4 YEC 2000, superb match, hingis crying at the end
def. sharapova 6-1 6-3 Tokyo 2005, cleanest match since comeback :)
def. davenport 7-5 in the third in Zurich i believe, or was it filderstat? back in 2000, it was the best match the two have played in their long history, winners everywhere

worst losses
hard: lost to frazier 3-6 3-6 (?) in 2000, just :tape:
lost to seles 4-6 2-6 US open 2002, making it obvious that retirement was near

grass: lost to virginia ruano pascual 3-6 1-6 in the most lacklustre match of her career

clay: lost to venus 6-4 5-7 4-6 in rome 2006 in the worst performance of her comeback, playing both passive and sloppy
lost to capriati 4-6 3-6 RG 2001, :eek: at that display :help:

carpet: lost to petrova 2-6 2-6 in 2002, right before retirement, still inexcusable :tape:

Your scores and dates are wrong.

M.Hingis def V.Williams 6-3, 6-4 at the '98 RG quarters. The press hyped this match as the "Real Final" but it turned out to be a one-sided affair.

M.Hingis def M.Seles 6-7, 6-4, 6-4 at the Chase in 2000.

M.Hingis def M.Sharapova 6-3, 6-1 in Tokyo 2006.

In 2000, she beat Lindsay 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 in the Zurich final.

She lost Virginia Ruano-Pascual 6-4, 6-4 at Wimbledon 2001, I believe. Either way, I know the score wasn't 6-3, 6-1.

She lost to Venus 6-4, 5-7, 4-6 in Warsaw '06, not Rome.

Yep, those are just about all the corrections.
