Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Which head-to-head's are you surprised by? I'm surprised that KLindsay leads Monica 10-3.

Also, which head-to-head's do you think are misleading? I think the Davenport-Sharapova head-to-head is surprising. Lindsay has actually won one more total game than Maria in their head-to-head, despite Maria leading their head-to-head 4-1. It just goes to show how close all of Maria's wins were, and how much lindsay dominated Maria in her lone win.

most surprising for me:
Venus Williams leads JHH 7-1 and JHH won their FIRST meeting since then Venus won 7 matches in a row

Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Two Hingis head to heads always surprised me.

HIngis 18-2 record over Arantxa Sanchez Vacario. Remember, ASV actually won her fourth slam, the '98 French Open, in the middle of Martina's run, yet the Spaniard found it almost impossible to beat the Swiss Miss.

The other is Martina's 16-5 record against Monica Seles (including Hopman Cup). Again, Seles was still a top player, having won the AO in '96, but Hingis clobbered her at the end of that year and went on to dominate her. She even delivered a double bagel to Monica, maybe the only one in Monica's career for all I know.

The two were good friends and even briefly played doubles together, beating the Williams sisters, but Monica rarely seemed to find the answer to Martina.

Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Venus/JHH is interesting, but of course they never seem to meet up in tourneys in the last few years...

Serena leads Davenport heavily I believe, which seems strange b/c Lindsay is leading or even with several top players like Vee, etc.

Justine 12-1 Sveta sticks out to me. I saw the one Sveta win in 2004.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Martina won every of 15 or more matches against Sandrine Testud,however most of them went to 3 sets and the score in the decider was sth like 6-4,7-5 or 7-6 . But Martina owns her

Martina Hingis & Sania Mirza

I agree with this one. They have played quite a few close matches but its always Justine that comes away with the win.

Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Most of the Venus wins against Justine came before Justine reached her peak. Martina^s wins against Seles were after Monica came back from the stabbing. Monica played well when she first came back, but soon after injuries and weight problems overcame her. Monica was severly injured the day of that bagel performance. She should not even played the match, especially after the first set, as it was obvious she could barely move. It was very painful to watch that match.

Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Capriati's H2H with Davenport is shocking to me and misleading. Jen just moves so much better than Lindsay, but has a 3-10 record against her. This head2head should have been more like 5-5. I think it is misleading because a good bulk of Lindsay's wins came when Jen had not completed her comeback yet and also because most of those wins were in 3 close sets.

Proud to be one of Jen's hells angels

Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Stevenson leading Capriati 3-2 is surprising to me, especially since Alex won 3 of 4 when Capriati was top-3 in 2002.

Re: Surprising/Misleading head-to-heads?

Venus/Patty. They always seem to have three set matches, but Venus always comes out with the win.
