Both the 99 and 00 US Open semi finals remain as two of the best matches I've ever seen. And it seems only fitting that they split those matches, because both were amazing.

Hingis maybe hit the shot of her life to get to match point in 99; Venus maybe hit the shot of her life to get the smash back in the third in 00. Amazing matches.

this like one handed backhand that went around the post of the net and dropped right on the back line. It was amazing. but it was like off a drop shot by Venus, so it was more of flick thing, not a true one handed backhand

Is that the one where Serena Took the Title?

You can thank everybody for a junior role.

Good match, but the 2000 semifinal was much more thrilling, higher quality, more emotion and more tension-filled...Much better than the 1999 semifinal...

Yes, Serena (who took out Davenport 6-4 1-6 6-4 in another amazing semi final) beat Hingis 6-3 7-6 in the finals.

all i remember was extremely high quality hitting in 99, but didn't venus's serve completely desert her a lot during the match? like a 53 mph serve at some point. i dont have it on tape, just memory.

both were so thrilling though!

yea, the 99 Open was an amazing tournament on the women's side.

The Venus serve was off in the semi final, but Hingis played great ball. Venus competed so well, despite having a terrible day serving. I'm sure there were more breaks than holds in that match.
