The 7 Top 9's of 2009

2009 was full of everything that we tennis fans were hungry for. It was a veritable feast of tennis goodness, that constantly reminded us just how gorgeous the sport can be when played at the highest level.

Not only did we get to watch the players we love, like Federer, Nadal, The Williams Sisters, The Bryan Brothers, Kim Clijsters, etc...but we also got to live vicarously through them as they reached new highs.

Who could forget the year Roger Federer had? Or Kim Clijsters unprecedented return to Grand-Slam tennis?

Who didn't feel for Nadal when injuries overtook him? Or for Serena when she lost her way?

And who didn't cry for joy when Federer won the French or when Clijsters shocked New York?

Yes, it's true, this year had it all. Trials and tribulations. Gossip and glamour. Colossal achievements and milestones. Tears and laughter, and everything else in between.

Now, on to the 9's...
