I got to watch Henin vs Dementieva live, and the atmopshere was great. Fantastic match that seemed to go on forever, loved every minute of it. Probably the highest quality match IMO.I didn't really care who won though.

I voted for Sammy defeating Serena. I didn't give her much chance going into the match, but she played pretty well, was toying with Serena for a set and a half. Chocked but managed to keep her nerve somehow and even saved a match point! Those two points to break Serena at the end are still etched in my memory. So that was my choice :)

even in some of the best matches, you still get unforced errors, predominately because of the quality shot your opponent can provide. I was there, and it was an entertaining game to watch. To be honest most of the crowd was on Kirilenko's side though, neither of the two ladies wanted to give up (match felt like it went on for ages). Sharapova didn't play bad, kirilenko simply played a smart match:)

Azarenka, Serena from AO. I was literally pacing my dorm room at 4-0 deuce. MY roomate thought I was gonna pass out. I stupidly thought it was over. Then soon as I blink Serena started slamming serves, killing returns and shooting winners all over the court.

Yup I agree Serena vs VIka @ AO 2010 is the best GS match in 2010

I remember that match and I was so shocked to see Serena a set and 0-4 down. I had to turn it off and tried to accept that it was over and that Henin would probably win the AO :o. I checked the score a few mins later cause I couldn't' help it and to my surprise Serena was able to take the 2nd. At that point I knew she would come back!

I have no doubt. ;)

But I distinctly remember Maria making buckets of errors, in particular one of her service games I think she hit three forehands in a row into the net.

I'm surprised Serena vs. Sharapova isn't on the list. But my favorite was definitely Serena vs. Vika at the AO. Every year she gives us a CRAZY thriller there, :lol:

Serena vs. Vika was amazing.

Vika played so well to go up 4-0 in the second set and then Serena went into destruction mode and just started to blast winners from all over the court. Absolutely incredible!

Sam def Serena at FO :worship:

The two strongest servers on tour battle it out in the final set. No tie break. Whoever breaks and holds wins.
