I would have to agree with Jenn-Kim at Roland Garros, followed closely by Martina-Serena at Oz.
Thats what came to my head immediately when i read the title, was Jenn and Kim <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <br />I think I still have that on tape! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> (or did I tape over it with Ferrero and Guga?..hmmm..)
The quality of Jennifer vs. Kim was awful, at least in the first 2 sets.<br />My vote goes to Lindsay vs. Serena at US Open, that one was great.<br />Serena vs. Monica in toronto also was one hell of a match.<br />Today's semi-final was great, too.
i can't remember, but right off the top of my head i'd say...
Pete Sampras d Andre Agassi (QF at the US Open)<br />Lindsay Davenport d Kim Clijsters (today)<br />Kim Clijsters d Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario (yesterday)<br />Lleyton Hewitt d Andy Roddick (QF at the US Open)<br />Jennifer Capriati d Kim Clijsters (F at the French Open)<br />Justine Henin d Jennifer Capriati (SF at Wimbledon)
Serena vs Hingis (Ausopen QF)<br />Venus vs Jennifer (Miami F)<br />Serena vs Kim (Indian Wells F)<br />Amelie vs Hingis (Berlin SF)<br />Amelie vs Jennifer (Berlin F)<br />Serena vs Jennifer (Roland Garros QF)<br />Kim vs Henin (Roland Garros SF)<br />Kim vs Jennifer (Roland Garrps F)<br />Serna vs Likhotseva (Eastbourne SF)<br />Serena vs Jennifer (Wimbledon QF)<br />Venus vs Davenport (Wimbledon SF)<br />Jennifer vs Henin (Wimbledon SF)<br />Serena vs Seles (Los Angeles QF)<br />Venus vs Meghann (Stanford QF)<br />Kim vs Davenport (Stanford F)<br />Serena vs Seles (Toronto SF)<br />Serena vs Jennifer (Toronto F)<br />Venus vs Henin (New Haven QF)<br />Seles vs Daja (USOpen 4th)<br />Serena vs Davenport (USOpen QF)<br />Majoli vs Hingis (USOpen 3rd)<br />Alexandra vs Meghann (Quebec QF)<br />Alexandra vs Dementieva (Moscow 2nd)<br />Seles vs Nagyova (Bahia SF)<br />Davenport vs Kim (Munick SF)<br />Amelie vs Testud (Munich 1st)<br />-----------------------
That's all I remembered <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> I love all that matches <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
For me:<br />Jenny vs venus in the miami final (the 3 set) , incredible level.<br />and....the best for me was when serena beat seles in the canadian open =(, i never saw these power in a match, my god!!!!!!!!!!<br />and my surprise, when clarisa fernandez def asagoe in the fed cup (argentina vs japan) 10-8 in the 3 set <img src="tongue.gif" border="0"> <br />salutes, argentino <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" />
TennisMenace: I would agree that Hewitt-Roddick and Agassi-Sampras are among the best matches played on the ATp this year.<br />I'd throw in Guga vs Ferrero at Rome, and say it was the best one played on clay.<br />As for Grass, it'd have to be Federer-Sampras, Rafter-Agassi, and Rafter-Goran.
In fact I think Rafter-Goran takes the cake for match of the year on BOTH tours.
No doubt in my mind, the greatest and the most exciting - Capriati vs. Clijsters in the French Open final!!! The most strange match - Capriati vs. S.Williams in the quarter final at Wimbledon!!! (What a turn around!! Particularly the game where Serena serving for the match, but then lost that game in love to Jen!! (If I remember it right!!??) )
