    I'd have to say the 1999 Family Circle Cup Final. Anna Kournikova vs Martina Hingis.

    Next would be the Sharapova vs Ivanovic Match during this years Australian Open women's final.

    That first round match at the 2000 US Open in which Capriati forgot to wear her panties under her tennis skirt. :shock: :-o

    I-I need that video. Wonder which tv station got the best views and angles. No doubt not one of the American based channels. Them being prudes.

    I'll have to find the spanish or italian tv channels recordings of the event to get maximum enjoyment.

    I remember that match ... I mean like, I was waiting for the changeovers to see her seated !!!!
    Those long games going into multiple deuces were unbearable, .... The umpire calling "Time" - I could have killed him then and there.
    The ball boys must have had the best time, though.

    How was that possible? It's like we guys forgetting our pants.

    Well i dunno about that. The ABC coverage during the Grand Slams of womens matches they show close up shots of the players behinds when they're in the ready position going to return serves.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    ABC doesn't cover any of the slams.

    Do you mean Capriati forgot to wear her 'bloomers'? That's different from not wearing underwear (but men don't always know the names of our garments).

    Surprised no one has mentioned Kournikova Dokic from San Diego a few summers back.
