    Hi. I'm looking for a copy of this match. I have a copy but I give it a 5/10 picture at best. Does anyone have a good version? At least an 8 out of 10 in picture quality, perhaps an ESPN version but any language, I love this match and would like a good copy of it. I would be happy to do a trade.

    hi

    there's a very good quality version of it on youtube, both bya guy with the username rttennis, the first is of the first set tie break and the second is of the last few games from 4 games all.Both videos are about 10 minutes long.Maybe you could ask that guy to send you a copy of his tape?

    first set tie break:

    It is funny how Kuerten could never translate his performance from the Masters Cup that year into a grand slam on hard courts. That was dissapointing, everyone was waiting for a great performance from him in a hard court slam, especialy after that huge Masters Cup win and it never happened. He never got past the quarters of the U.S Open even with some good draws, and even more unbelievably never made it past the 3rd round of the Australian Open.

    Kuerten tended to start the year slow, so the AO results never surprised me. The USO surpised me more. Not necessarily that he didn't win it, but that he never made one final, or a couple of SFs. He did have incredibly long strokes, so I'd say it was the court speed, but he did make the quarters of Wimbledon and the USO, and won the Masters Cup as the OP points out.

    Yep Stage6 is so much better than youcraptube. Great tennis on there as well as a lot of other stuff. Super Bowls up, great quality.

    Well, you could have had the decency to inform me of this website in August 2007 before I proceeded to post 398 videos on youtube!

    Unfortunately I don't have the energy to post videos all over again on a new site. But I agree youtube should be a lot better picture wise, especially after the money they received from google!

    I only found out about this site about a month ago, it's a real pity about the videos on youtube.On the other hand they'll probably reach a wider audience there so that's one positive you can take from it.
    To be honest, the video quality on most of your videos with blue courts is very good, eg: Sampras V Edberg.It's only hard to see the ball on smoe hard courts, eg: rafter V sampras cincinatti.

    Still, I suppose if you wanted to you could post some of your slam matches that youtube didn't allow you to post.

    I'm still going through the videos on stage6!It's unbelievable!

    here's the Sampras V Federer exos:

    I recommend Kuala Lumpar ;)
