Lets make a list and add thoughts, memories, etc.

Off the top of my head:

2002 Aussie: Capriati d. Hingis-4 mps. This is a record for a ladies slam final and a record for most saved in winning an event.


1986 US open: Navratilova d. Graf in semis 6-1 6-7 7-6. Martina saved 3(?) mps, with the crowd screaming for the young German to win. I remember on one mp Navratilova bravely let one passing shot go by her. It landed just long. She easily beat Sukova in the final.
