Yes, definetly one of the greatest most entertaining matches I've ever seen. Great tennis from both players, Venus had such a dream run through the draw to the semis which was amazing considering I remember her losing in Toronto to a then 115 ranked Nathalie Dechy, and then suddenly she was playing like a top 10 player. Third set was great tennis the whole way through, both playing great, and Spirlea got to matchpoint, I remember her hitting a great shot up the line and coming to net, at which point I thought she had one it...And out of nowhere Venus and her long legs tracked the ball down, and she not only got to it, but cracked a backhand winner up the line right past Spirlea! I think even Irina thought she had won it, and after that Venus seemed to pull away in the very end to notch the upset, along with of course the infamous bump which saw the feuding in the press conferences. Definetly one of the most memorable moments I can remember.
