I'm watching the third set of Capriati - Dementieva in the 2004 USO Semifinals. :drool:

My favourite tennis is long, baseline tennis. This has to be one of the best sets I've ever seen. That 49-shot rally :hearts:

What are some other good ones?

Nope, I just love it when Serena plays practically perfect tennis, and to bagel someone as consistent as Hingis, that's EXACTLY what you gotta do :yeah:

Actually until the very last moments, my favorite set I ever watched was last year when after seeing this amazing spunky player win through in qualifying at Roehampton, I got to see her main draw Grand Slam debut. The three matches I saw of Yaroslava Shvedova in qualifying made a huge impression on me. In her second match she fought back from a set and 5-2 and matchpoint down to win with such coolness I was entraced.

So obviously I couldn't wait to see Yari play Lisa Raymond on court five at Wimbledon last year. And she played brilliantly, some of the most joyful, inspired tennis I have ever seen. Raymond was actually playing very well too but she was totally being outclassed. I remember the whole set, I couldn't stop smiling as Yari hit one amazing shot after another. I knew I was watching a star being born.

And then in one second while leading 5-3 and only a couple points from the winning the 1st set, it happened. Suddenly it went from being the most enjoyable set I have even seen to being the most saddest and depressing. Yari badly turned over her ankle and was in agony. Nothing could be done for her and she was taken away in tears on a wheelchair, her Wimbledon dream destroyed. My heart really broke for her. :awww:

Anyone who has seen the pictures of Yari winning in Bangalore would reconise probably the happiest girl in the world. She really does have the most amazing genuine smile on the tour. I think alot of that joy from winning in Bangalore came because she has suffered some terrible injuries along the way and fought back from them.

The way Yari plays the game you can see her love and passion for just playing tennis and to see it taken away by injuries is a horrible terrible thing I hope never to see again.

Steffi Graf def. Sanchez Vicario 10-8 in the third, RG 1996.
I can remember it sooo vividly. Steffi won the first set, then Sanchez snuck back into the match, winning the second on a tiebreaker. Then Sanchez served twice for the match but Steffi came back. Exciting stuff. And the crowd were going insane.

...well, that bagel in Canada was part of one of my favorite matches ;)

Is that the one where Serena retired in the third set?

I enjoyed that match - it was entertaining to see Martina hold her nerve so well in the second set. Such a shame it had to end that way.

Still, the best bit was Serena's attempts to give her speech in French at the end which was priceless.

Beijing TII 2006 2R: Sugiyama d. Vaidisova 6-4 1-6 6-3 - the second set.

I'm not joking. Imagine a flairsome heavy hitter ripping the cover off the ball on every single shot, yet hitting with perfect timing and placement and making no more than a couple of unforced errors during a whole set. Perfection. Simply unbelievable that she still managed to lose the match after that.
