"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow
I thought the 2000 Aussie open, quarters match with Hingis against serena, Hingis towards the end got so pumped up i thought she was gonna kill serena, after coming back from i think 4-1 down in the 3rd and winning showed she had real determination and didnt just give up, i wish she could have this attitude now when she plays the top 3 :-).
I need a new favourite...suggestions please!
Seles vs Graf 1992 French Open Final (Seles won 6-2 3-6 10-8)
Seles vs Graf 1993 Australian Open Final....the greatest match ever, in my opinion. (Seles won 4-6 6-3 6-2)
Graf vs Sanchez-Vicario 1996 French Open Final (Graf won 6-1 6-7 10-8)
Graf vs Sanchez-Vicario 1995 Wimbledon Final (Graf won 4-6 6-1 7-5)
Seles vs Sanchez-Vicario...a lot closer than the scoreline suggested....French Open Final 1991(Seles won in two close sets)
Hingis vs Venus Williams 2000 Wimbledon QF (Venus won in 3)
Graf vs Hingis 1999 French Open Final (Graf won in 3)
........to me, the Cap vs Kim match of 2001 was NOT a particularly great match. It only lasted so long because neither could take their chances. It was exciting, sure, but not one of the all-time great matches.
