Martina's Biggest Grand Slam Final Win.

In Marti's 5 grand slams, she's defeated(in order)

1997

Martinez, Novotna, V. Williams

1998

Pierce

1999

Mauresmo


I personally never saw any of these wins( ) I am a recent fan and would have only been around 8 in 97. So, for all the 'older' posters, which GS final victory was Martina's best one?

Possibly the one against Novotna, because she lost the 1st set in that match. That was the only GS win where she lost a set in the final. I think the one against Venus was great as well, because there was a lot of pressure on her in that match, also the one against Amelie in the AO win in 99 was a good one because Amelie was playing really well, she beat Lindsay in the semis. I think I'd go for the Novotna one though.
Although I have to say, the only Marti win I saw live was the Wimby 97 one, the AO ones I saw later on in the day, when I already knew she'd won and I sadly never saw the Venus match . So maybe that's why I went for the Novotna victory.

I would select the 1997 OZ final against Pierce, this is the time I've become a fan of hers. I was so impressed with her game and the way she made Pierce scramble around the court. I've seen a genius coming.

2nd would be the wimbledon final against Jana. Her mental toughness was on display in this match. I never thought she'd win after losing 1-6 in the first set. Jana was overpowering at the net then until Marti started to read her game. My friends who turned pro Jana at that time only because they know that I'm a Marti fan become mute, when I started jumping from the second set to finish.hehehe
