So we're about half way through the year. What's the best match so far?

In my opinion some of the best were:

Maria Sharapova def. Justine Henin 6-4, 6-0 (Australian Open)
Serena Williams def. Venus Williams 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (Bangalore Open)
Serena Williams def. Jelena Jankovic 61, 57, 63 (Sony Ericsson Open)
Serena Williams def. Maria Sharapova 7-5, 4-6, 6-1 (Family Circle Cup)
Dinara Safina def. Justine Henin 5-7, 6-3, 6-1 (Qatar Telecom German Open)
Dinara Safina def. Serena Williams 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (Qatar Telecom German Open)
Dinara Safina def. Maria Sharapova 6-7, 7-6, 6-2 (French Open)
Dinara Safina def. Elena Dementieva 4-6, 6-7, 6-0 (French Open)
Ana Ivanovic def. Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 (French Open)

Ana vs Schiavone and Ana vs Jankovic were very nice.:p

the match where Serena beat Sveta 3-6 7-5 6-3 in the Miami semi was also one of the best imo.

Jun 9th, 2008, 07:23 AM
it's still Jankovic-Paszek for me

Jun 9th, 2008, 07:38 AM
safina's matches against sharapova and lena at RG - to do the same thing twice! and in a GS too!

Jun 9th, 2008, 07:41 AM
I'd go with Safina-Sharapova

Personally it was the AO final, because I was there.

Havent seen a whole lot of matches aside from the slams thanks to our lack of coverage.

Serena's match against Sharapova in Charleston.
From the little I saw Dinara's match against Dementieva in RG.

I still think Henin def. Kuznetsova 4-6 6-2 6-4 at Sydney was the best. Ana-JJ RG semi comes in a close second. Some of those matches listed in the first post were exciting but not very good.

Jun 9th, 2008, 08:26 AM
For me Ana-JJ RG

Jun 9th, 2008, 08:40 AM
For amazing rallies:

Ana and Jelena at RG
Jelena and Paszek at AO

For drama:

Safina matches basically :)

JJ/Tamira @ AO :bigcry:

Dinara Safina def. Maria Sharapova

Amazing match, so much drama. And Safina fought back rather than Pova choking!

Jun 9th, 2008, 09:30 AM
Sydney 2008 - QF - Vaidisova def. Jankovic 6-4 4-6 6-4.. what a drama and what a great match :hearts:

Jun 9th, 2008, 10:22 AM
Safina against Justine, Serena and Maria

She fought like a demon in those matches :worship:

Jun 9th, 2008, 10:23 AM
Serena vs. Sveta in Miami

Jun 9th, 2008, 10:24 AM
best display of tennis from one player... sharapova df. henin AO... amazing tennis, out of this world... if she played like that all the time she woodnt lose a match all year.

best match... ivanovic/jankovic... so much on the line and great tennis - especially the last set!

S. Williams def. Sharapova @ Charleston


Safina def. S. Williams @ Berlin

It's hard because the best match I saw in terms of quality was Serena beating Venus in Bangalore, but there wasn't a ton on the line at a Tier III semifinal. The Miami semifinal between Serena and Kuznetsova was intense because it was the past two champions and a Tier I, and the quality was quite good. But for most on the line with still high quality, I'd have to say Ivanovic-Jankovic at the French. #1 ranking, spot in the French Open final, dramatic character contrast...good stuff.
