Which according to you is the best women's final in the open Era..?

For me, it has to be the 2005 Wimbledon final between Davenport and V. Williams.

The match was a class apart with Venus saving three atch points en route to winning the longest final ever.

I can think of a few off the top of my head

1992 French Open Final- Seles def. Graf 6-2 3-6 10-8
1985 French Open Final- Evert def. Navratilova 6-3 6-7(4) 7-5
1987 French Open Final- Graf Def. Navratilova 6-4 4-6 8-6
1981 Australian Open Final- Navratilova def Evert 6-7(4) 6-4 7-5

and Although I have never seen it...the 1973 French Open final between Court and Evert must have been a real battle to as the score was so close
6-7 7-6 6-4 in favor of Court

If I had to pick one it would probably be the 1985 French Open final, by then many had written Evert off and this win showed she could still compete, plus it saw her get the number 1 ranking for the final time. It was just an overall great match.
