Nice thread. I'm going to choose 2 answers - one from the list and another, more personal, choice. From the list, I'll take the first Slam. Everything about that was just amazing. The timing of it - I'd just done my first set of finals, (on the night of my last exam, I came home after having celebrated the night away and sat down to watch Jen play Monica in the quarters. I even said to myself I should stay and watch it because I didn't know how many more chances I'd get to see Jen play), the way she played - such carefree abandon and just the one moment I never thought she'd have. I was resigned to her being in that list of 'Best players to never win a Slam' and that hurt. From the a set and 4-2 down in the quarters , she played fantastic tennis, never lost another set and was a worthy champion. I'll even admit that at match point, I said out loud, 'If you win this one, it'll almost have been worth it', referring to the years of crap she'd been through and we, as fans, had been through.

The other Slams were special too but this one very narrowly wins the contest.

My other choice is from Wimbledon 2002. Cutting a long story short, I was watching Jen play Daniilidou on Court 18. Throughout the match (both days - it had gone over 2 days due to rain delays and bad light) I'd been making my support for her very clear. I find it difficult to be silent when she plays. Anyway, at the end of the match, as Jen was packing her stuff away, she thanked the crowd and then turned in my direction and held aloft her clenched fist. I thought nothing of it but the people who were sat around me that I'd been talking to suggested that that was for me. Of course, I'll never know, but I like the thought of it. Watching it back on TV, it's very noticeable that she made the effort to show her thanks, because she was packing up her stuff but then stopped part-way through to turn around and salute before continuing with her bags. Allow me to think it was intended for me.

Thank you Pam! Btw, were you Pammentating on that match? If so, did you also notice how I got Sandra De Jencken's attention to let her know the scoreboard was fucked?

i think the first slam was great! Jenn just played amazing fearless tennis. and to see her hit that backhand winner down the line on Hingis's weak serve was just great. to see her Jenn and scream and celebrate was the best part. i'm getting chills just writing this right now and thinking about that moment in my head. right than Jenn proved that she did, all her work and taltent, its all there. i love Jenn so much.

I've also voted for her first Australian title. The two other slam finals were closer matches,and probably more exciting for the "general public," but as for the emotional impact it had on me.....Nothing beats that first one,especially since I never thought it would happen. And it was great to see her so happy. Beating Graf to take the Olympic gold was amazing too,and so was her win against Navratilova at Wimbledon. I thought she was on the verge of dominating the game back then. Well,we all know what happened (sort of),but what an amazing comeback! Jen IS VERY SPECIAL guys,but I know we are all aware of that.

I voted for Jen winning the 2001 Australian Open. I was so excited when she won.

It does sound like Jen's clenched fist was for you. She's always loved the support from the crowd.

Her 2002 AO final battle against Martina.
I've never thought there was a chance of winning it. First MP and her forehand was flying so close to the net, OMG that was something. The way she battled, the determination and great physical form, I watched that match zillions of time and still can't believe she won.

Undoubtedly, this was one of the best matches in history of womens tennis.

I liked Jennifer winning the 2001 Aussie Open because that was the first match I ever saw her play. I feel as if Jennifer's career would have been very different had she not won that final.

I liked Jennifer's 2001 French Open win because that was the match I truly thought she was FOR REAL and I considered myself a fan.

I liked Jennifer's 2002 Aussie Open win because it was the one year anniversary of me watching Jennifer's matches. It was also the perfect match to sum up what her career was like if there was a match.

I liked Jennifer's 2001 Wimbledon Quarter against Serena Williams because it was a good way for her to win her last match before losing her grand slam bid. She came back from down a set and 5-2.

I liked the day Jennifer received the #1 ranking for the first time because I thought she earned it and gave us several pleasant surprises that year.

I liked Jennifer's 2002 Espy acceptance speech because she beat Michael Jordan in something. All I could do was laugh because Jordan was my childhood hero and my inspiration before Jennifer came along.

I liked Jennifer's 2001 French Open speech because at the time it was like a dream to her and a lot of us.

I liked Jennifer's win over Serena Williams in the 2004 French Open quarters because that was her last win before I would move from the town I lived in for nine years. Seeing Jennifer win the last three games and not lose her composure on the match point that was taken away from her made me very happy on that day I dubbed "upset day".

I liked Jennifer's win over Serena Williams in the US Open quarters because Jennifer really fought back from having an awful first set and perform well late in the match.

To sum it all up, I have a lot of favorite Jennifer moments.

I love ALL those moments that are in the poll and lots more. I voted for the French Open win, because it's my favourite tourney of ALL! Besides I was suffering nightmares when I watched it, I yelled my lungs out and threw a couple of times my baseballcap on the floor, before I freaked out of happiness when she made the matchpoint to win it 12:10. I was at my best friends house and they thought the neighbours will soon call the ambulance to take me to a mental asylum It was one of the happiest days in my life, one that I will never forget. I will love Jenny always and forever.

well I loved OZ 01 because she was such and underdog and handles the pressure so well plus her celebration was great and she was so nice.

But my favourite Jen moment has to be the OZ final 02 - I remember watching that in bed and thinking how well Hingis was playing but when those matchpoints came up Jenn was so aggressive and brave it was amazing, both women looked so physically tired from the soaring temperatures but kept on fighting,plus she defended a grand slam and was number one in the world!
