My parents always watched tennis growing up so I've seen a lot as a kid but the one I remember the most is Serena's 2001 SF (or OF) with Capriati at Wimbledon for all the wrong reasons. :lol:

A Federer match at Wimbledon during his prime.. don't remember which. Maybe a final? Fed got me interested in tennis and I still am a big fan of his.

The first WTA match I saw was in a documentary. I think it had Navratilova, Graf and what not. As for an actual match I recall seeing a Venus match where she smashed her racket, and I was quite shocked as a kid :lol: Probably not exactly an accurate first impression of Venus :hysteric: Funnily enough Venus is one of my favs :eek:h:

I was randomly picking tv channels and heard a commentator saying a teenager is playing against big name Serena Williams. I knew nothing about tennis but decided to see what's going on there. So for me, it was a birth of a blond tennis star. I was 13.

My first memory was an Agassi vs Sampras match, and I have no idea which one but it was in the late 90's.

The match that made me the great tennis fan that I am today was Safin vs Federer 2005 Australian Open Semifinals. That was the day that I was like, wow, this sport is for me, forever.

1988 Graf d Sabatini at the Olympic Games, gold medal match.
Thanks for posting smth a little older, haha, I'm not alone!

I definitely remember Evert/Navratilova from the mid 80's but my first real tennis memory was Graf vs Sabatini in the RG semis 1988 and then vs Zvereva in the final. Totally hooked me on women's tennis. What a massacre that final was.
Poor Natasha, Amazing Steffi, Gorgeous Gabby.
