There was a thread floating around GM about best shots, and we all know that it would be one of Martina's, but just referring to specific matches what shots do you guys remember the most.
Mine would have to be:
*1999 Sydney Internationa Vs Schett, she was down 5-4 in the tiebreak in the final deciding set and Schett pulled her wide on the backhand and Marti ripped it down the line... awesome!
*1997 Australian Open Vs Pierce, this is my first real memory of Martina's backhand down the line, they were having this nice rally and Martina just turned her shoulders and punched it down the line on the line, completely unexpected and completely gifted.
*1999 US Open Vs Williams, i don't think many will forget the shot that gave her match point. One handed backhand scramble shot for a winner down the line.
*1999 Australian Open Vs Mauresmo, down 0-40 at 4-3 in the second and Martina just pulled a drop shot out of nowhere, she was on the baseline and Mauresmo had no chance.
*1998 Australian Open Vs Kournikova, i mention this match because it was in this match that i saw Martina play her best game, it was early in the first on Anna's serve, she came in on the first 3 points and Martina passed her on the backhand with a down the line, then a forehand down the line, and then a running topspin backhand lob, i was in awe.
I've also heard Pam Shriver mention that Martina use to play a left handed forehand when she was streched on the backhand side and return it for a winner, unfortunately i've never seen her do this
What about you guys?
