Australian Open final wasn't that good. Both had played better tennis before that final.

My favorite was RG semifinals, Ivanovic bt. Jankovic.

I'm still waiting on a match with the quality of Venus/Lindsay at the 2005 Wimbledon. We haven't seen that type of match

Serena v Venus (both were really outstanding displays for women's tennis)

The Aussie Open final?!:lol:

Such anxious, nervy tennis from both. Sharapova could've won far easier and Ivanovic couldnt hit a forehand in if her life depended on it. A very drab final IMO.

The Wimby final was great quality, probably low on the drama though.

The US Open final had the best mixture for me- quality, drama, crowd reaction:D

For me personally, it's a tie between Ivanovic def. Hantuchova AO SF and Serena def. Venus USO QF, both such exciting matches.

Did everyone forget Dechy/Ivanovic from Wimbledon 2R? Sharapova/Safina was great from RG, too.

Venus/Serena USO QF is up there too.

A lot of peoples have voted for matches that Jankovic had been involved in. But not many peoples think that she deserves to be number one? I think she plays great tennis very often and deserves to be number one more than a player like Ivanovic even if she have one grand slam title...

Best match of the year: Ivanovic - Jankovic at roland garros
