Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

Title speaks for itself. What do you think were the most epic/great/fantastic matches on Grand Slams this year?

Australian Open:

Francesca Schiavone def. Svetlana Kuznetsova 4-6 6-1 16-14. (I don't have to explain )
Venus Williams def. Sandra Zahlavova 6-7(6) 6-0 6-4. (Epic scream queens battle)

Li vs. Wozniacki also pretty epic

Roland Garros:


Arantxa Rus def. Kim Clijsters 3-6 7-5 6-1. (Saving 2 mp's in 2nd set)
Na Li. def. Petra Kvitova 2-6 6-1 6-3 (Petra up 3-0 in final set before Li roars back)

Wimbledon:

Venus Williams def. Kimiko Date-Krumm 6-7 6-3 8-6. (Amazing match with amazing tennis, felt bad for Kimiko though)
Sabine Lisicki def. Li Na 3-6 6-4 8-6 (Sabine! )

US Open:

Sam Stosur def. Maria Kirilenko 6-2 6-7(15) 6-3 (EPIC Tiebreak)
Sam Stosur def. Serena Williams 6-2 6-3 (Great tennis and of course Serena drama )

So what about you guys? Know any other epic matches?

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

Stosur - Petrova was probably the best in my opinion.

The quality of the Schiavone-Kuznetsova at the Australian Open is unmatched, by probably any match this year.

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

Makarova/Ivanovic and Sharapova/Goerges were good (both at AO).

Sharapova - Goerges match was the closest thing we've had this year of two in-form big hitters blazing winners past each other consistently...3rd set alone was a winners galore from both ladies

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

If I was asked to choose best slam matches of the year, I would pick these ones

1. Schiavone-Sveta


2. Venus-Kimiko
3. Stosur-Petrova
Bonus: Stosur-Kiri (mostly because of the 2nd set and the tie-break of course)

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

Please, Kim-Rus was crap.


My ranking would be :

1 Bartoli - Pennetta (Wimbledon)

2 Petrova - Stosur (USO)
3 Date Krumm - Williams (Wimbledon)
4 Kuznetsova - Schiavone (OA)
5 Goerges - Sharapova (OA)

VA - AK - SH - P2H - RN

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

AO: Sharapova/Goerges
RG: Kvitova/Li I guess, not many good matches either
EO: Williams/Date-Krumm
USO: Stosur/Kirilenko and Pennetta/Peng were the only matches of decent quality but no spectacularly good matches, much like RG

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

I don't remember the Goerges-Sharapova match being that good.

I think the Pavlyuchenkova-Schiavone match at the USO was pretty fun.

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

AO
Schiavone d. Kuznetsova, bar none.

FO
I don't even remember

Wimbledon
Venus d. Kimiko
(Honourable mention does to Lisicki d. Li, probably my favourite match but the quality of tennis was better in Venus & Kimiko's match)

USO
Stosur d. Petrova
(Honourable mention goes to Stosur d. Kirilenko for the tiebreak)

____


YEC
Radwanska d. Zvonareva purely for that last set

Re: Best matches per Grand Slam this season?

when Pavlychenkova threw away the FO title when she lost to Schiavone

and when Na Li throwed away the Wimbledon title when losing to Lisicki

these 2 were the turning point for the whole season
