Im getting a bit of a picture re your fave Champs of the 2000's. How about the 90's? For me it was prob Jana Novotna as she really thought she had ran out of chances.

Jana Novotna had a story. She lost in two finals in past including dissapoiting loss after she had her match with Steffi already winning and she was one of best players on tour which hadn't Slam adn won it in last step of her carrier. I wote for her as well ...

Martina... :inlove:
EDIT: Hingis of course

I watched first Wimbledon in 1997, so I say Davenport in '99. She was my favourite player back then.

Lindsay. Her reaction was just beyond adorable. :inlove:

I will say that Jana finally winning after being so close was probably the most memorable.

1. Lindsay
2. Steffi

Hingis! :)

Lindsay Davenport.

I miss this woman so much

Steffi by far Goddess of tennis :worship:

Jul 4th, 2011, 04:23 PM
Jana got my vote :)

Jul 4th, 2011, 04:51 PM
1.Jana :worship: :bowdown: after choking away 2 finals, she finally did it in 1998
i know it was "only" Tauziat in the final, but when she got broken serving for the match :scared: still, she bounced back and played a super tiebreak ;)

2.Lindsay :worship: still remember her superb performance against Graf and the look of disbelief in her face when she won :sad:

Jul 4th, 2011, 05:28 PM
Lindsay and Conchita my top 2 but they are all fantastic champions. :worship:

That's a pretty exclusive group there (though not as exclusive as the French which only saw 4 winners in the whole decade).

Jul 4th, 2011, 05:43 PM
Martina Hingis :worship::worship::worship:

Jul 4th, 2011, 05:43 PM
1992 Steffi. :drool:.
Demolition job.

Jul 4th, 2011, 06:39 PM
I did not watch tennis then but I vote fore Lindsay.

Jul 4th, 2011, 06:42 PM
Thanks for putting a "my fav didn't win" selection in there. :yeah:

Why is it, regardless of the poll question, that is almost always the choice I gravitate to? :awww:

Anyway for the record, Natasha Zvereva. ;)

It was Steffi Graf who got me into tennis i used to love watching her, Monica Seles and Gabriella Sabatini. Ah those were the days.

Hingis. But Davenport's win '99 was one of my all-time favourite wins.
