I could care less about 1997. It was 2000-2003 when it was domination at it's best. Also the year the Williams drove Hingis out of the game. :drool:

One match, Hingis didn't even win the '01 Australian Open nothing to brag about. I could easily say, 'Enjoy the 2001 US Open Semifinal beatdown'. 'Nuff said. :wavey:
