French Open final Jen vs. Kim was certainly long, but probably not the longest. Any others ?

Martina's 6-0 6-2 against Lina K. was only 39 minutes, I think. Any match that was shorter ?

Shortest: probably Hingis with just 36 (!) minutes. Don't know who the opponent was. Score was 6-0, 6-1.

Well, Henin bt Conchi 6-1 6-0 in wimbledon. I dont know how much time it lasted, but I'm sure it was quite a short match

serena didn´t beat kuti kis in 37 minutes, i found this on the wimbledon website!

<br />Playing the aggressive tennis that earlier in her career had her tagged as the next Steffi Graf, the 26-year-old German annihilated her Russian opponent, Elena Dementieva, 19, to post, at 38 minutes, the fastest match at this year's Championships, with her 6-0 6-2 victory.

<br />anke was faster then serena, but i think it was not the shortest match of the year!

Kournikova was involved with two pretty fast matches in her career. She beat Patricia Wartusch @ the Oz in the first round in 2000 6-0,6-0 in 33 minutes. A couple of weeks later, she was beaten by Hingis @ the Pan Pacific 6-0, 6-2 in 38 minutes.

Wasn't Chanda Rubin involved in one of the longest matches @ Wimbledon in 1995? I remember reading in a tennis magazine that the match was 4.5 hours long. I think she was playing Patricia Hy-Boulais (Canada) 7-6 (4), 6-7(5), 17-15 in the R64. Chanda lost her next match to Anke Huber 2-6, 4-6 in R32. To be honest, I'm surprised that she had anything left! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Chanda is such a battler.....she won against Halard-Decugis, I believe, at the Australian 18-16 and beat Majoli 10-8 in a Fed Cup match once.....and of course, defeating Jana Novotna 9/7 after being down 5/0 40/0! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Don't forget that Chanda beat my Arantxa 16-14 at the Australian Open in 1996. <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

A shame that they didn't meet since then so Arantxa could have her revenge. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

TOT, Conchita's QF match at Wimbledon lasted something around 50 minutes... which considering Conchita's average speed, that's like a 30 minutes match by any other player <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
