I get the feeling the Sydney final will win this poll, unfortunately, but I voted Eastbourne '07. Just unbelievable tennis from both players. One of three times Justine has ever made me feel anything when watching her play (aside from irritatedness :o ).

I don't want Momo's last amazing match to be that final. :bigcry:

I really enjoyed the 2006 Eastbourne final. Such clean hitting from Nastya and some great shot making from Justine, a really great match.

2004 Stanford, definitely a turning point in Davenport's career, that win gave her a ton of confidence.

Los Angeles 2006.
Totally biased and I know it, but it really was a good match.

Other noted good matches are Eastbourne 2006/2007

2004 Beijing or 2007 Beijing. Great matches there. The 2007 one isn't a CLASSIC but down on match point, Szavay aced Jankovic with a second serve and came back from 5-1. Very impressive for a new comer.
