i can't believe some are saying maria v dinara :lol:
Why? It may have been littered with errors at times, but in terms of excitement and drama I don't think anything else topped it :shrug:

Sharapova - Rodina and Sharapova - Safina :devil:
Jun 7th, 2008, 11:38 PM
Maria-Dinara, even though I had the worst week of my life after that match. :lol:

Maria vs Safina was great because it was such a battle of wills, and made the more dramatic by how inspired Safina was from 2-5 onwards.
Jankovic vs Ivanovic had the battle of the contrasts. Ivanovic with the aggression, and Jankovic with the great defense and court-craft. I love contrasting styles with great drama like that.

Dinara-Maria, Radwanska-Cornet, Ana-JJ
special headcase award: Patty-Loit

Ana v Jelena, simply because a place in the final was at stake.
Jun 8th, 2008, 05:18 AM
Dinara - Maria was the best drama-wise, but on quality, it has to be Ana - Jelena.
Jun 8th, 2008, 05:28 AM
Maria - Dinara
Elena - Dinara :D

It was a rather low quality tournament. I'd probably go with Safina vs Sharapova purely because Safina actually made a genuine rather than her opponent falling to pieces like Dementieva did.
Again Ivanovic vs Jankovic had drama but it was created more by nerves than high quality play.
Jun 8th, 2008, 05:50 AM
Definitely Safina against Sharapova
Jun 8th, 2008, 05:52 AM
Safina vs Sharapove. It has been a long time since I had all those feelings watching a tennis match. First, the dissapointment when Safina couldn't take the first set, then the excitement of her saving match points and then the mental battle in the first 5 games of the third when both were fighting to win. And then the excitement when Safina wrestled control and fulfilled her potential to beat Maria on clay again. Drama!

The quality of tennis was very high at this year's tournament.
I liked all the obvious ones (Safina-Sharapova, Ivanovic-Jankovic) but another really entertaining one was Jankovic-Niculescu.

i loved the jankovic-ivanovic match. the drama was there and it had very high quality of tennis. i loved that we got the best of both players in one set each (both coming from behind btw), ivanovic in the first set showed her aggression, then jankovic in the second showed her defensive skills, and then the third set was a combination of both, which was really entertaining to watch.
and a close second was the sharapova-safina match. i was pretty sad to see sharapova lose, but come on...what a frakking comeback from safina. quality wasnt the best, but who really cares?

Dinara vs Maria :drool:
honorable mentions: Ana vs Jenena, Dinara vs Elena
Jun 8th, 2008, 08:38 AM
In terms of drama it's Sharapova-Safina hands down. I couldn't believe that Safina actually won that; thought it was over.
In terms of quality it's Ivanovic-Jankovic. It was like they were trying to put on a show because they switched roles in the second set with Jelena attacking and Ana defending.
Jun 8th, 2008, 08:50 AM
I enjoyed every one of Jelena's matches. Really well played, entertaining matches for 6 rounds. JJ vs Cibulkova in the bullring was intense, and of course JJ/Ana is my favorite. Ill have to check out Sharapova/Safina.

Jun 8th, 2008, 08:55 AM
Dinara vs Maria
Jun 8th, 2008, 08:57 AM
Ana vs JJ, so much at stake, so much drama. :drool:
Jun 8th, 2008, 09:00 AM
Dinara - Maria - loved the drama
Ana -Jelena - good quality and some nice drama
Elena - Dinara - but only the first two sets, good quality
Jun 8th, 2008, 09:42 AM
( but I'm sure Kanepi/Medina-Garrigues was very good !:))
Jun 8th, 2008, 09:44 AM
Probably Jankovic vs Ivanovic.
Jun 8th, 2008, 10:16 AM
the match sharapova against safina
but i´d like safina vs.dementieva and ivanovic vs.jankovic too
Jun 8th, 2008, 01:22 PM
Sharapova vs. Safina I would say. However the SF Jankovic-Ivanovic was not bad as well.
Venus vs. Obziler was tough sometimes as well with some very good balls.
Jun 8th, 2008, 01:37 PM
Masha-Catfina this thread is pointless
since only 2 gd matches
Catfina vs elena/masha
Jun 8th, 2008, 02:24 PM
Does anyone have any video clips of Dinara's matches against Sharapova and Dementieva?
Jun 8th, 2008, 03:14 PM
Sharapova-Safina was great [if not heartbreaking], closely followed by Jankovic-Ivanovic.
