It can be you spectating or participating.....

For me:

When Goran Ivanisevic won Wimbers 2001. To win as a WC was excellent and to do it when you were seemingly on the way out was even better. He had been beaten in 2 or 3 finals previously by the likes of Sampras or Agassi and I was pleased for him that he finally won it.

The guy had arguably, the best serve in the game. Powerful AND accurate

What memories stand out for you guys?

well my favorite moment when i was participating...
was when i won the school's U14 singles and doubles at school! Very Happy Had some tricky people to play in the singles, going down a set a couple of times Frown and to this day.. i purely think i won because of luck.
..In the singles final i was a set down in the first, and in the second set it was 4-1 to my opponent!  ](*,) but i pulled through on tie break and won the next set 6-4 so that was something i'll never forget. Yes, it's only a school championship but im exstatic about the result!  yahooo And i got a nice cup in the end! Very Happy

My fav "watching" tennis moment.. well, definitly agree with 2001 Wimbly! good stuff that was... otherwise it's very tricky to choose!  Think
I suppose, for 2005, i'll say Nadal's win at Rolland Garros. But that maybe that's because i've been following him for a couple of years now and it was his first grand slam.. but still! i watched everyone of his matches, and that final vs Puerta, was legendary!! i'll never forget that!  trophy he's a true champion!

The same moment, but for different reasons.


Frown I so wanted Pat to win, the atmosphere was utterly fantastic, but I was gutted. It was one of the all time great finals.

In hindsight, Goran was unbelievable, but I was too partisan back along.


On a personal note, the best tennis moment  was the first time I got picked for my school tennis squad.

I was one proud kid.  I seriously thought....udaman   Rolling Eyes

Very Happy haha.. well the cup wasn't much bigger than the Ashes
(When i say the Ashes i mean the cricket Ashes cup.. dunno if you Scots watched England play Australia this summer.. anyway that "Ashes" cup that they won was smaller than Pietersen's thumb..  Eh? yea it's tiny.. tradition!)
well ok my cup wasn't that small.. but nothing Wimbly style! Wink

Yeh....England win the Ashes for the first time in donkeys years and they are the worlds masters, and suddenly cricket is all the rage!!!

We Scots got sick of all the Ashes hype but to be fair (they did well and showed good sportmanship)

Yea, well i can see where you're coming from, about the Ashes business...
i suppose many people are thinking - it's 18 years since England won them.. 71 years since England have won at Lord's (huge stadium in London..) which actually means England, honestly speaking, are pretty awfull!  no
But i really think this year they showed something extra ordinary!  goodjob yes.. it's only 1 single year, and people might think.. it's a sort of fluke!
But the level of cricket that they played.. good gracious, it was stunning!!  notworthy

Vaughie is out..  Crying or Very sad and being replaced by Alastair Cook (former U19 captain!)  yahooo

You know... I thought a long time about it and I finally decided, the moment for me was when our Belgian Kim Clijsters finally won her first grand slam, it took her so long. And the emotion, it was almost morning, al the Belgians got up at 4 to watch the game and I think everybody almost cried, she was just so happy! Crying or Very sad
 yahooo The commentaters even made a bet, if Kim won, they would sing New York New York in front of so many people, and they did... Oh where are the times  Whistle  Think  Crying or Very sad
My moment in the history of tennis!

If we narrowed it down to favourite women's tennis moment, Kimmie's US Open win would be nearly top of the list (after Virginia Wade's 1977 Wimbledon win.  yahooo  Yup I know that's really dating me)

Kim has a wonderful reputation on the circuit. She is, apparently as lovely as everyone says.

dentie, do her and Justine get on? I hardly the follow women's game, but they seem like chalk and cheese.

Are they friends or real rivals?
