Venus- All of Wimbledon 2005. She fought REALLY hard agaisnt Davenport and Pierce(in the second set). Alaso her 2000 match agasint Hingis at the US Open.

Serena- Australian Open 2005 when she beat Maria Sharapova 2-6,7-5,8-6. The way she saved thoose match points was amazing :eek: ! Agasint Henin at Miami this year Serena displayed her heart and determination :) . Her match agasint Kim Clijsters at the Australian Open was pretty amazing as well.

Jennifer defeats Serena: 2-6 6-4 6-4 2004 U.S OPEN Quarterfinals









Capriati came into this match as the underdog, nobody gave her a chance.

Everyone said she was "fat" and "too slow" and that was that big mouth bitch Tracy Austyn. Jennifer started off like she did against Serena at wimbledon, out of it, slow and not concentrating on key points.

Beginning of the second set, you could see a light in Capriatis eyes when she finnaly broke Serenas serve. Jennifer took control of the situation and made Serena play longer, dragged out points, setting up many unforced from Serenas side. Capriati Ended the set strongly and continued into the third with renewed confidence.

Serena was fighting and fighting as well, both with Jennifer, herself and that idiot Umpire Mariana Alvez. That wopman really fucked both ladies over. Which is sad because that match was the last match Serena and Jennifer ever played proffesionaly-EVER. And it was a true classic in there fued.

It had every ingredient, and an abundance of heart, shot making and true drama. Im glad Jennifer won, she deserved to win-PERIOD, however, it WOULD have been sweeter had Mariana not fucked up and given free points away. Jennifer would have won either way, i feel. But regardless, it left a scar on Jennifer and clearly it affected her play the following day against Dementieva...a woman she had no right losing to.

Mary was lead by one set and 4-1 in the second set, if she lost, France was losing FedCup after 4th match,but Mary came back and won in three!
