One of the most emotional women's matches ever?
 
Man, look at these girls fistpump and scream, and yell. Serena looks like she can't STAND Maria in this match. :shock:

I've never heard Maria shriek the way she did in the 3rd set. Jesus H. Christ!

I'm not really a big Serena fan, but I'm always happy to watch her quiet Maria down. :)

Serena has done this a lot. Someone posted a video of her playing Mauresmo at the FO a long time ago and apparently Mauresmo said something Serena didn't like and when they played their match, Serena was playing with this angry frown her face the whole match.

It looked really stupid.

That was the turning point in their rivalry. Maria never regained the mental edge (she actually won the two meetings between them leading up to that match if I remember correctly).

I love the clip where maria hits an overhead close to being at serena and in the slowmo you can see serena mouth "b!tch". No love lost between those two.

Anyway I'd say the most emotional match ever would be the Hingis Graf '99 FO final

defo.

Or on the men's side Goran - Rafter at W 2001.

Serena is the only female player who could intimidate me in a match, I think (of course every top 500 WTA player would throw a double bagel on me but that's not the point). If a Sharapova or an Azarenka shouted a "come on" in my face and threw a fist pump I'd be like "LOL you don't scare me b////"

tennis_pro 02-08-2013 04:46 AM

Btw if you had any doubt that Sharapova's scream was unnatural you won't have any after watching this

Mauresmo said a williams-williams final is boring. Serena and Venus were in 4 consecutive major finals. This is what Queen Serena did to her at the FO.

Am pretty sure Justine Henin said the same thing and actually backed up her claim with Serena's first defeat in 34 Grand Slam matches :).

which is why serena destroyed Henin at the WB final after the FO final with Justine's disappearing hand raise that wasnt.

Still Serena's first defeat in 34 Grand Slam matches :). And it wasn't the FO final or WB final. She routed Clijsters in the FO final and Serena beat Venus in the WB final.

who cares that it was her first defeat? Im just saying that after the shady stuff henin pulled in the FO match, serena destroyed her at WB

thanks for clearing up the fact that they werent finals tho. my bad.

I'm convinced that if these ladies put half of that typical emotional energy toward their fundamental tennis, we'd probably have some half-decent action going on.

Instead, we've got this bizarre puree of batting practice, screams of child birth, and boo-boo lip posturing worthy of afternoon soaps.

SO emotional!...

Mauresmo was just a choker. At least 50% of Serena's slams and overall success come from the fact that she simply is not mentally fragile.
