Kvitova isn't a Wimbledon champion of the 2000s :facepalm:

It's not KIvitova, I have no idea why commentators often pronounce it that way. It's not hard to say kv for English speakers, is it?

Another one that gets on my nerves is AnaRIvanovic. Am I the only one who hears these?

I won my Oscar in the Spring of 1959. I like to think I was the best of the 50s, hell of all time, but each dame earned it, they are all equal.

Maria's win in 2004 was the "cinderella story" of the decade...at 17 beating Serena (Miss Amazon) the amazing tale of Uri sacrifacing everything for Maria's tennis lessons and the whole atmosphere it created of electricity and publicity as the story unfolded into a spectacular event!:hearts::worship:

Maria's one and only Wimbledon.......right? How long ago was that? A fluke win on a surface surposedly her favorite if u ask me. Since then, Serena and Venus have won how many? I bet u Serena or Venus will win another WB before maria does.

I expect it to be special to ya'll since u know deep down sharapova won't be winning it again.

PS:
Serena won USO at 17 and have repeated on the surface multiple times. U don't see us creating idiotic threads over it

I actually like the R sound the English use to glue together 2 vowels in a row one of which is in the end of the first word, the other is in the beginning of the second :angel:

oh, and AnaRIvanovic didn't win Wimbledon :lol:

I know. Poor Vivien. Gal never got over that role. Blanche never killed anyone, though, I did have a hard role.

the 2000's are 2000 to 2009...so Petra should not be in this poll....

People often forget Serena was coming back off of knee surgery in 04, still Maria played an excellent match. Never was able to defeat Serena since her victory.

Venus defined the decade at Wimbledon. Finals in 2000,2001,2002,2003,2005,2007,2008,2009. Just crazy

The '00s is to Veenas like the '90s is to Steffi and the '80s to Navra.


And yes, Petra's win belongs to another decade (the 2010s)

Amelie Mauresmo.

It was so emotional seeing her winning, she truly deserved it

All of them. They all played wonderful tennis during their wins and all thoroughly deserved them. Besides, I liked them all.
