Australian Open final

Nov 22nd, 2007, 04:38 PM
Australian Open final
I agree and honorable mention to Bartoli d. Henin for shear fighting spirit from Marion :hearts:

Nov 22nd, 2007, 04:39 PM
Kim Clijsters def. Jelena Jankovic :bowdown:

Nov 22nd, 2007, 04:43 PM
The Australian Open final was probably one of the best WTA performances ever. :rolls:

Nov 22nd, 2007, 04:43 PM
Henin def. Mauresmo 75 67 76, forza. :rocker2:

Nov 22nd, 2007, 04:47 PM
Vee def. J for sure MOY!

Nov 22nd, 2007, 05:17 PM
Venus Williams def. Jelena Jankovic

Nov 22nd, 2007, 05:19 PM
Maria def Patty

Nov 22nd, 2007, 05:22 PM
If it's two equals playing high quality tennis of similar levels, Henin def. Mauresmo, Eastbourne final.

If it's best overall performance by an individual over another individual at a high level, against a quality opponent, at a major event, Australian Open final.

Nov 22nd, 2007, 06:28 PM
venus-justine was the best quality and tension wise, amazing points!

Just Do It
Nov 22nd, 2007, 06:34 PM
Kim def Jelena :bowdown:

Farina Elia Fan
Nov 22nd, 2007, 06:34 PM
why are people voting for Serena and Maria?????

The question was for match of the year and it wasnt a match! If it was performance of the year, I would agree 100%

Nov 22nd, 2007, 06:35 PM
Justine vs. Amelie!
Venus vs. Jeca was incredible too.

justine schnyder
Nov 22nd, 2007, 06:48 PM
Kim vs Jelena

What was so great about Serena- Maria?? I know Serena played great, but "match of the year" supposed yo be tight, which both player plays well.. Other wise I'd say Henin def Bartoli 6:0 6:0 YEC :devil:

Nov 22nd, 2007, 06:48 PM
Anyone have the number of UE's in the YEC match?

Henin's the best
Nov 22nd, 2007, 07:00 PM
Anyone have the number of UE's in the YEC match?

8765 at least

Nov 22nd, 2007, 07:13 PM
YEC final, for sure.

Nov 22nd, 2007, 07:20 PM
For me : Venus def. Jankovic, so close, so exciting and Venus won. :D
Henin def. Venus was also good, but Vee lost and so I can´t vote for that :lol:

Nov 23rd, 2007, 02:52 AM
Kimmy d. Jelena, this is one of the matches that will make me remember kim for a very long time :D plus jelena played great tennis as well too so :yeah:

Justine def. Venus - USO 2007 SF

Who can ever forget the 1st set (unless you didn't watch it, or ain't a fan of both players) :lol:

Nov 23rd, 2007, 03:10 AM
The USO SF was not the match of the year. Justine was too good that day but Venus wasn't playing the tennis she could have been. It should have gone three sets if Venus was healthy enough and then it probably would have been match of the year.

Venus def. Jankovic, now that was intense with good quality.

and the others in the poll are much better?
Venuss health was not really the issue...
she was rallying tooo much with Justine...

do you remember 2nd set
3-3 ...
venus made 3 CONSECUTIVE winners to make it
3-3 0-40 3dps against Justine...
if she could have played like that the whole match..
it could have been different..

Nov 23rd, 2007, 07:43 AM
Miami final.

Nov 23rd, 2007, 08:39 AM
Venus v.s. Jankovic had rallies to die for! I mean Venus had lost to Jelena the last couple of times and Venus rarely loses to the same player twice...but this thread is also about performance so I'm going with Serena.

Nov 23rd, 2007, 08:45 AM
Ju def Amé @ Eastbourne Final

Nov 23rd, 2007, 10:26 AM
Justine def. Venus

Nov 23rd, 2007, 11:16 AM
Jankovic vs Jelena...

well... lots of great rallies that Vee won...
its just amazing how Jelena can keep up with Vee
playing like that...

great to watch..

Nov 26th, 2007, 03:35 AM
I think it's safe to say Justine-Venus wins, although Maria-Justine made a break for it lately.

Kim-Jelena just doesn't seem to have enough importance for me to want to pick it. I don't remember people going so crazy for it when in happened. :shrug:

Nov 26th, 2007, 11:16 AM
i hesitate between :
Justine def. Amelie
Venus def. Jankovic
Justine def. Maria !

Nov 26th, 2007, 06:04 PM
Marion Bartoli def. Justine Henin because it was one of the few on the list I saw on TV. I just assumed Justine would walk her way to the Wimbledon final and thought Marion would get nervous but I was wrong.

Nov 26th, 2007, 07:07 PM
Out of the matches I've seen I would say Marion def. Justine. God, Marion was amazing in that last set and a half, she completely outplayed Justine. The US open SF and Yec final were pretty amazing too.

Nov 26th, 2007, 08:40 PM
Clijsters def. Jankovic in Sydney:yeah:

Nov 26th, 2007, 09:25 PM
Match of the year? Defintely Venus v Justine SF US Open. Tennis at the highest level this year by both players. Honorable mentions to Justine/Amelie and JJ/Venus.

However, I believe that the performance of the year was Marion at Wimbledon against Justine. Serena's performance against Maria was excellent, but many spectators believe that Serena was able to beat Maria beforehand. No one expected Marion, a Top 20 player at the time to even challenge Justine, who was on a 16 match winning streak.

Nov 26th, 2007, 10:04 PM
Justine Henin def. Venus Williams.

The Daviator
Nov 26th, 2007, 10:10 PM
Henin def. Venus

Nice to see it's in the lead :yeah:

Nov 26th, 2007, 10:43 PM

Nov 26th, 2007, 10:48 PM
Although I don't particularly enjoy watching Venus or Jankovic play, I really liked to US Open match between them for some reason :shrug:

Nov 26th, 2007, 10:56 PM
Justine v Maria Madrid Final

Nov 27th, 2007, 11:25 AM
they're both my fav's - rena v. juju in miami. :worship:

Nov 27th, 2007, 11:31 AM
yan def ana 6-3 6-1

Nov 27th, 2007, 11:40 AM
Justine def Masha. Fantastic tennis

Nov 27th, 2007, 12:45 PM
I was fortunate enough to have a ticket for the WTA final in Madrid - the best match I've ever seen live. I voted for that one.
