This is a great thread. I hope I can pick the good ones cause some of them are biased based on fav players.

So here goes:

Australian Open:

99 Mauresmo toppling Davenport
02 Capriati's astonishing comeback against Hingis
00 Davenport crushing/demolishing Hingis

French Open:

98 Seles dusting Hingis
97 Majoil upsetting Hingis
99 Graf's surprise win over Hingis
97 Hingis over Seles in the semis


*I'm noticing a trend, its not that I hate Hingis, it just seems like those were great matches, its only coincedence thats she the loser*

Wimbledon

97 Hingis coming back against Novotna (there, see, finally a win)
99 Davenport holding serve the entire match on her way to
beating the 7 time champ Steffi
00 Venus winning her first slam beating Davenport in straights!
(not an easy task)


Us Open

99 Serena on her way to her first Slam final beating Davenport
99 Pierce in her losing cause to Davenport (I hated that she lost)
00 Venus winning that great semi against nemesis Hingis.
01 Capriati losing to Venus after leading 4-1. It was a good
match. lots of good points.

Australian Open:

2006, Tsveti Pironkova def. Venus 2-6, 6-0, 9-7 after being 5-6 in the third, Venus serving and 15-0.

Roland Garros

2001, Venus def. Serena

Wimbledon

'03 i think, Asagoe def. Hantuchova in the 2nd round... stuning match... Dani took first set 6-0, she was destroying Asagoe but lost second 4-6. In the third she was leading 5-3 and had service and the result in the game was 40-0... she lost that game and started playing quite nervous. Asagoe equlized for 5-5 and Dani started crying on the court...After that Hantuchova served 1 or 2 times for the match but she coldnt finish it... Nevertheless Shinobu took the set 12-10 and beat in her next match Schiavone and lost in the 1/8 finals by Lindsey.

Sprem - Venus 7-6, 7-6 another memorable match for me.

US Open

Lena D def. Capriati 6-0, 2-6, 7-6. Jen won 5 (!) points in the first set.
Capriati def. Serena 6-4, 4-6 6-4 not sure about the score

I'm bad with years :eek:
plus I haven't been watching tennis for several decades like some on this board, so most of the matches are 2000 and beyond
and some are just in there because they were special to me ;)

Australian open
F Capriati def. Hingis -- wasn't it in 2001? :confused:
F Justine def. Kim -- 2003 -- that bad call still makes me angry
SF Serena def. Kim -- 2002? -- blowing a 5-1 lead due to Serena's amazing play!

Roland Garros
F Graf def. ASV -- 1996
SF Justine def. Serena -- 2003 -- the hand ;)
and of course! 2001 F Capriati - Kim Clijsters: what an exciting match! + first Belgian to reach GS final...


Wimbledon
F Davenport def. Graf -- 1998
F Venus def. Justine -- 2001
F Venus def. Davenport -- 2005 -- never expected Venus to win before the tournament started...

US Open
SF Justine def Capriati -- 2003 -- great match, Justine even had to go to the hospital after it
F Kim def. Pierce -- 2005 :hearts: (I know it wasn't a great match, but it was to me ;))
F Venus def. Serena -- 2001?

can't believe people don't have 2003 Justine/Jenifer semi final in their USOPEN selection
Basicly, you guys are picking matches on players not on the match itself.

You're supposed to pick matches that were memorable to you. :rolleyes: Not the greatest quality. Anyway I thought Venus-Hingis 00 & Seles-Capriati 91 were better matches. :shrug:
