If they wanted to show a real classic, they'd show the 2002 Final with Capriati and Hingis. That was a classic.

Apparently any match is considered classic if it goes to three sets and the winner wins 7-6 or 7-5. Even if the match is error-filled.
The US open 2003 semi-final had drama, but it was not really classic based on the errors. The Aus open final with Martina and Jennifer had so many errors, it also had only drama.

Pretty much, it's very rare to see a three set women's match these days that doesn't turn into an error fest at some point. That adds to the drama too. A lot of the 'classic matches' of this year have had one person leading and capable of finishing the match in straight sets but letting up and making errors.

I haven't been able to bring
myself to watch the entire match since it aired!

However, I caught the tail end of the second set
and the third(first time i've watched it since january).
I didn't realize how much grit and heart Venus showed in that match.
Had her serve been on as it was the day before, she could've won that match in two sets.

I look forward to
seeing them play again! :)
