Re: WTA-finals that felt like Slam finals?

Tbh, I love making fun of Beijing as much as the next person but the atmosphere in some matches (Vika-Maria, Na-Shuai) really surprised me in a good way.

Re: WTA-finals that felt like Slam finals?

Well, considering most slam finals are uneventful beat downs, I'd say there are a lot of WTA finals that feel like slam finals.

Well then, let me re-arrange the thread title: WTA-finals that felt like exciting Slam finals?

Thanks to everyone who has replied btw, I agree Brisbane Henin vs Clijsters was also good! And of course the YEC finals such as the 2007 or 2005 ones had a great atmosphere.

Re: WTA-finals that felt like Slam finals?

Serena Capriati 2002 Miami. This match and atmosphere was everything a Slam Final could give. I remember sitting in front of the TV literally lol. Great stuff. Both ladies played like a point was in need of being proven. And of course Serena did just that lmao

This, handsdown. The crowd was basically on court for this match. And it was great quality, choking included.
