Your Favorite Sharapova-Serena 'battle'.

Watching the epic '92 RG Final between Graf and Seles, who were by far the biggest attractions on the tour that time, just reminded me of how huge their clashes were and it made me think of today's game and the scale of the matchups between our current biggest attractions .........
Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams
2004 YEC F: The first 'big' showdown between the new starlet of the game and the current head honcho. Serena got injured mid match resulting in her being unable to hit a proper serve, yet to compensate she began hitting missles of every ground stroke(some of those shots were scary) which led to a 4-0 lead in the final set. Maria then won 6 straight to capture the match and title: 46 62 64 Sharapova

2005 Australian Open SF: early on it was begining to look like Maria would indeed be replacing Serena as the new it girl and Maria had also clearly gotten into Serena's head. Serena, being the fighter she is, gutsed out a tight 75 second set but it was Maria who drew blood first in the final set. Maria held 3 match points at 54, but Serena eventually prevailed in a true war. 26 75 86 Williams

2008 Charleston QF: Going in it was Peak Pova(who unknown to anyone including herself was playing with a severly injured shoulder) against a rejuvinated Serena who had just captured Miami(and finally beaten her recent nemesis Henin). Maria held a couple set points but couldn't convert and Serena stole the set 75. Set 2 saw Maria once again rush up to a 52 lead and holding set point only for Serena to again save them, but this time Maria eventually held her off and won it 64. Final set saw Serena brush aside and mentally done Maria. 75 46 61 Williams

2010 Wimbledon RD16: This Wimbledon saw the emergence of Serve bot Serena and the semi comeback to form of Maria. Despite it being a tense of tight match, neither gave up much in the first set which lead to a TB. Maria got the jump and held 2 set points at 64, but Serena reversed it and won 119. Second set saw an early break for Serena and that's all she wrote. Despite not being the best quality, it was a very huge match and Maria was the only person to even hold set points on Serena the entire event. 76(119) 64 Williams

This is not a thread for hate.There aren't too many big matchups in today's game and it's from those it's even harder to find ones that have had classic/epic showdowns. Serena-Vika would probably be next.

Definitely AO SF 05 - I had to turn off the TV and go to sleep when Serena was down match point in the 3rd. And well, you know what happened next...

2005 Australian Open SF without a doubt. A good-quality thriller and their last real competitive match.
