PICK THE BEST MATCH OF THE YEAR (only ONE)

For me Maria Sharapova/Tatiana Golovin Nasdaq-100 takes the cake. However, Mauresmo/Clijsters YEC Madrid was a very good match.

Re: PICK THE BEST MATCH OF THE YEAR (only ONE)

The best comeback is definitely the Indian Wells semifinal

Re: PICK THE BEST MATCH OF THE YEAR (only ONE)

I can only pick among those I watched on TV.

JHH d. Clijsters Eastbourne SF, with Safina d. Zvonareva RG 1R a close second.

I know these seem odd choices, so I added many other good matches below.

I) Best matches featuring good tennis from both players:

JHH d. Clijsters Eastbourne SF
Safina d. Zvonareva RG 1R
JHH d. Sharapova AO SF
JHH d. Clijsters Wimbledon SF (a much better match than most people think)
JHH d. Myskina Eastbourne Final
Kuznetsova d. Oprandi Rome QF
Dementieva d. Jankovic LA Final
JHH d. Davenport USO QF
Sharapova d. Clijsters San Diego Final
Petrova d. JHH Berlin Final
Sharapova d. Kirilenko Miami 4R
Golovin d. Schnyder Stuttgart SF
Schnyder d. Peer Stuttgart 2R
Vaidisova d. Jankovic Linz QF
Schnyder d. Dechy Linz 2R

II) Matches not necessarily featuring great tennis but which were riveting nonetheless (Lena D. ranking high on this category as always):

Dementieva d. Peer Moscow 2R
Sharapova d. Washington RG 1R
Dementieva d. Srebotnik Stuttgart 2R
Mauresmo d. Jankovic Beijing SF
Mauresmo d. Clijsters YEC SF (superb third set)
Pironkova d. Venus Williams AO 1R
Petrova d. Schnyder Charleston Final
Vaidisova d. Venus Williams RG QF
Dementieva d. JHH IW SF
Vaidisova d. Mauresmo Moscow QF
Mauresmo d. Vesnina Moscow 2R

III) Best (one-sided) demolitions with flawless performances from one of the players:

Clijsters d. Kuznetsova YEC RR (best by far)
JHH def. Peer USO 4R (perfect performance)
Chakvetadze d. Safina Moscow 1R (Safina never knew what hit her)
Dementieva d. Hingis Tokyo PPO F (Lena D. did everything right)
Kuznetsova d. Mauresmo Miami SF
Hantuchova d. Safina Stuttgart 2R
Razzano d. Hingis USO 2R
Hantuchova d. Kuznetsova Zürich SF
Ivanovic d. Golovin Montréal 1R
Vaidisova d. Mauresmo RG 4R (last two sets)

[Special category: early round blowouts against lower ranked opponents]

Davenport d. Kostanic USO 2R (the most one-sided match of the year?)
Schnyder d. Krajicek RG 1R
Sharapova d. Kloesel AO 1R
Sharapova d. Kostanic AO 3R
Sharapova d. Smashnova Wimbledon 1R
Sharapova d. Likhovtseva USO 3R
Sharapova d. Krajicek USO 1R

IV) Not really demolitions but very good performances from one of the players against respectable opposition:

Sharapova d. Petrova Linz Final
Sharapova d. Clijsters YEC RR
JHH d. Sharapova YEC SF
Clijsters d. Schnyder Stanford Final
Sharapova d. Schnyder San Diego SF
Schnyder d. Dementieva Paris GDF QF
Clijsters d. Kuznetsova Warsaw Final
Schnyder d. Dementieva San Diego QF
Davenport d. Schnyder USO 4R

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson
