Delusional sounds familiar?
Venus made plus 80 unforced errors and Hingis made plus 40... Hardly a good match to watch.
The end of the match was painful to see one player in cramps and the other choking it left and right. Still a very important win for Venus, very gutsy performance, but quality wise :help:.
The Rome match was way better in terms of quality.

I never said it was great quality i said the drama, intensity and build up made it a great match were did i saw the quality made it the best match of the yr :scratch: great numbers dont exactly mean a great match and vice versa

Wimbledon Final Amelie Mauresmo def. Justine Henin-Hardenne 2-6, 6-3, 6-4

Nov 12th, 2006, 06:38 PM
The best was the Henin-Hardenne vs. Petrova match in Fed Cup QF (won 63 46 63 by Justine I think). Amazing from both players!

Dementieva vs. Jankovic at LA and Mauresmo vs. Clijsters yesterday were pretty amazing too.

Certainly watching two great champions underperform and make that many amount of uncharacteristic errors, not even if the match ends 7-6 6-7 7-6, just makes me sick, so apart from being the same players in there, saying the match it was a flashback of their 2000 matches was just delusional, the match was very poor, as i said, they both played horrible at the same time, which is unusual, given to the fact of the great battles and inmense quality of tennis that these two can produce together.

The best matches of the year were the Wimbledon final and also the Dementieva v Jankovic match in the LA final :D

Nov 12th, 2006, 07:26 PM
I liked Dementieva-Henin from IW, Elena came back amazingly from 2-5 in the second set. and the fact that justine lost makes it just that much sweeter(because i didn't like her then, now i'm just indifferent to her).

AO Semi final if you're including both quality and drama.

Nov 12th, 2006, 10:26 PM
i voted the LA final.

i live in england and i was in the lake district watching british eurosport at some stupid time like 1:00am. When jankovic came back to 4-5 in the second i was on the edge of my seat, so far forward that i actually fell off (it was a leather sofa :lol: ) and i was trying not to make any noise so i didnt wake anyone

very exciting :yeah:

Yeah, it was never short in Dramatics!

I would also add:
Hingis def. Davenport, IW
Hingis def. Sharapova, Tokyo...I admit that at the time I didn't think Marti would come through those matches!

Honestly this was one of the worse years for high profile matches.
Even some of the matches on the list were full of unforced errors.

I'm going to pick Serena vs. Mauresmo 4th round US Open.
I think it became an eyeopener for both players for different reasons.

*JR*
Nov 12th, 2006, 10:49 PM
Warsaw R2: Belgrade Babe flawlessly executes JR's gameplan for her first career win ova the 2nd seeded Strange Suissie 6-3, 6-2. :yeah: (But loses to Chakky in the next round). :shrug:

I voted for "Mauresmo def Clijsters" (Madrid). Another match, I found quite impressive: "Sharapova def Clijsters" (San Diego)...
Too bad I have to mention these two losses of Kim....

AnneSo006
Nov 13th, 2006, 12:32 AM
Tatiana Golovin-Maria Sharapova Miami SF should be on the list...

The second set was simply the most amazing of the year! :)

But too bad it ended like that... I couldn't stop myself crying for Tati... It was really unfair after all she had done during this match! :bigcry:
