    I like to see entire matches. I like to see what got the players to the critical points shown in highlight reels. Most of the modern WTA matches are simply highlight reels and I think that hurts in a contest like this, again at least for me.

    What's weird is that the old matches, Seles, Graf, etc. can be found in full although the quality is very poor.

    I can't find full versions of these. These were the longest videos I found.

    I did find Venus' first USO win over Davenport in full, but not this one. Shared in the Tennis Random. The commentary there was apparently poor.

    There were also full videos of other Clay ATP masters that year but not that one. Go figure.

    I saw the Rome final on TennisTV. They're constantly adding to their archives too.

    As for the WTA what can I say? They're their own worst enemy.
