Your favorite year in tennis since 1995?

Which was your favorite year of tennis since 1995?

-From 1995 to 1997, it was pretty much a rivalry between Sampras and Agassi, especially Sampras who was mostly #1 during those years!

-From 1997 to 1998, Rafter was also a main contender, winning 2 US Open titles!

-In 1999, it was Agassi's year! Guga was among the best ones too!

-In 2000-2001, Guga, Marat, Andre and Lleyton all fought for the #1 spot and won slams during those years! Guga was #1 for almost all 2001!

-In 2002, Lleyton was dominating most of the year, winning Wimbledon and being #1 all the year! Johansson and Costa won the first 2 slams, and Sampras played his final match in the US Open final against Agassi!

-In 2003, it was the arrival of the new balls, Ferrero, Federer and Roddick fighting for the top spot! Andre won the AO and was #1 for a brief time!

-In 2004, it was the Federer year! No need to explain more!

Re: Your favorite year in tennis since 1995?

1999, 2000, and 2001 were all great years. There was a wonderful mix of the old and new, with Rafter, Agassi, and Sampras battling it out on one end, and the younger generation emerging beginning with Safin and Hewitt. Guga was in form, and Ivanisevic pulled out that incredible Wimbledon victory. I voted for 1999 because it was Andre's amazing comeback year. Also, women's tennis was really fun in those three years, with Hingis, the Williams sisters, Davenport and Capriati all in great form.

Re: Your favorite year in tennis since 1995?

a tough one... either 1999 with Tompa in the Aussie Open final, or 2003 with Rainer in the Aussie Open final... hmm...

Good luck to ...

Re: Your favorite year in tennis since 1995?

Hard to say what year I did like most, in all years you got tournies you like more or less then other years. I have to say that I did really like this year, but it is not my fav coz I like it when players have to 'fight' for their victory. Even while it is my favorite player. I did like the year of Ivanisevic a lot as well. Well with the year of Ivanisevic I mean the year he did win Wimbledon, that was just fantastic. Just that tournament made the whole season great

Re: Your favorite year in tennis since 1995?

2001, Year of Goran's Wimbledon and lots of my faves were playing well this year. Also Fed beating Sampras at Wimbledon, Guga winning 3rd French etc.. After that I would pick 2003 as Tim won his only TMS so far then. However I've loved all those years for different reasons and so this question was quite tough to answer, but those were years I particularly enjoyed as a whole.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Richard Krajicek won Wimbledon in 1996. That's still one of the single greatest achievements in Dutch sport history!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: Your favorite year in tennis since 1995?

I'll stay away from the votes, too tough to say... I can't really decide between 1996, 1999 and 2001

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
