Mine was 2000 wimbledon Venus Vs. Martina, and they said that Venus finally beat Hingis in a GS. I think thats why I like her now becuase that was the first match I saw!!

I can't remember which tournament it was, but it was Spring time (maybe March or April) 2001. Yeah that was pretty recent, but I only started tennis last year and I REALLY got into it after this year's Wimbledon.

Anyway, the match was between Hingis and Capriati. It was really exciting and I remember being really amazed at the things they could do with the ball and on the court. I think Hingis won that match, but I don't remember if I just left it when she was winning because it was late in the night, or that she really won the match. <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

Martina Hingis against Dragomir (I think!?!) at the 1999 French Open.

Then I watched Barbara Shwartz upset Venus at the same tournament.

I've been following Venus and Martina ever since. I watched the final w/ Hingis against Graf! Talk about a match! That was what got me hooked on tennis.

Chris Evert over the fabu Evonne Goolagong 1975. A four woman special event made for tv on ABC. I think the other 2 were Billie Jean King and Miss Martina Navratilova (another personal fave).

It was the 1982 Italian Open final, Chris Evert defeated Hana Mandlikova 6-0, 6-2. I was 7 years old and I was fascinated by that lady who simply couldn't miss a ball. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Wimbledon Final 1974. Chris Evert won her title over Olga Morozova. I saw it on a small black and white tv, and I was 6 years old. I watched Connors lose to Arthur Ash the following year I remember, but that was on a colour tv. Now I feel ancient.

Austin def Navratilova 16 76 76 at US Open. Can just remember Martina crying after the match<br />Barker def Goolagong, NSW Open<br />Navratilova def Goolagong, NSW Open

I have definitely seen some parts of Becker vs. Curren (Wimbledon 1985) and Westphal vs. Smid (Davis-Cup 1985; 17-15 in 5th set). <br />I have been following tennis regularly from 1987 and from 1989 I haven't missed much.

If we talk about TV, I can't remember.

The first I saw live was Tina vs Olga B. in A'dam Fed Cup 1999 (Even I don't remember much from that match) I remember better the Fed Cup dubs Belarus vs Slovenia
