Matches with WTA players beating ATP players

I've read a couple quotes from some ATP players that a great WTA player can't even beat a #1000-ranked man on the ATP circuit. Does anyone know of any matches where a woman player did beat a male player?

I know that Patty Schnyder once beat an ATP Player ranked ~900 in close sets (like 7-6 7-5)

I would think some of the TOP players in the WTA can beat some of the men in the top 100. I mean there are a few poor players in the ATP top 100.

No chance mate no women in the top ten could beat any bloke in the top 100 men there is no possibility. Back in the day when Jenifer Capriati had just reached 6 in the world and was at her peak then, she hit with an english player called Nick Gould who was ranked 400's and he beat her something like 6.2 6.2 there is no match theres no point even comparing

I think that some of the top club level mens players could defeat many of the top 100 women. Men are just so much stronger than the women.

Thats could be just a one off. I mean Sharapova and Davenport would be able to beat most of the men in the top 100. But they won't be able to beat the very top male players though.

I think if you look at any sport that involves power such as athletics, the men are way ahead of the women it is the same for tennis.

To federer, roddick, YES. To lots of other players in top 100, NO.

For gods sake.... some of you are delusional.... ALL the women in the WTA top 100 would lose to ALL the men in the ATP top 800.

I have watched female players LIVE all day long, then gone back to play club tennis and seen UNRANKED top mens state players... and the women would not get more then few games!!!
Men have kick serves that are far too much for a women... also men are usually a couple of steps faster then a woman let alone the difference in power.
Topspin... men hit with a ton of it... easily enough so that a woman is hitting above shoulder height... way out of her comfort zone.

Not even looking at top state male players --- this is a lose-lose situation... i can honestly say that i have seen NUMEROUS unranked male club players that would have players like Castano, Sequera, Beygelzimer in a three set match!

I think one exception is the Williams sisters for power and movement... i think they could have some male players ranked under 200 sweating a little!

I was talking about the BEST female players, not the 3 you mentioned in the previous post. Sharapova, Davenport, 2 Williams, are more powerful and skilful than quite a lot of the men in the top 200.
