In which match(es) this year did your fave stink up the court, hit multiple homeruns, or simply suck very badly.

Fourth round at Wimbledon, losing to Pironkova.

Nothing compares.

Re: Worst match your favorite played during 2011?

For Ana -

Top of the list for me would be her 3-6 1-6 loss to Kirilenko in Tokyo. Kirilenko wasn't even playing well and Ana managed to stink up the court.
Second place would probably be the 2-6 6-7(0) loss to Cetkovska in Wimbledon. Not only had she double-bagelled her the last time they played, but it was an abysmal performance all round - she didn't get a single break point, and got whitewashed in the tiebreak in the midst of a nervous breakdown. Shocking stuff.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

Re: Worst match your favorite played during 2011?

Vs. Wozniacki at Indian Wells in the SF and vs. Jankovic in the final of Cincinnati. Although Maria won the latter, that match made me want to cry it was so bad.

Re: Worst match your favorite played during 2011?

Auckland QF, lost to Arn 6-2 7-5, one of the worst losses of her career

Aussie Open R4, lost to Petkovic, 39 unforced errors in 17 games

Indian Wells SF, lost to Wozniacki 6-1 6-2, 40+ errors in 15 games, held serve once, 8 DFs

French Open SF, lost to Li 6-4 7-5, lost her serve 6 times, 10 double faults, 1 on match point

Toronto R3, lost to Voskoboeva 6-3 7-5, absolutely disgusting

USO R3, lost to Pennetta 6-3 3-6 6-4, 13 breaks of serve, 12 DFs, another loss to Flavia, just terrible

Re: Worst match your favorite played during 2011?

Maria didn't play particularly well during any of her matches in Auckland, but the worst one she played I would have to say is against Voracova, even though she won. Maria wasn't playing great against Arn either, but Arn was actually playing relatively well whereas against Voracova it was more a case of who was playing 'less' worse.

And there are many more matches where she wasn't playing well but too many to name.

That Erakovic match. Out of all of Vika's losses last year, that's the one that still irritates me.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: Worst match your favorite played during 2011?

I'm actually so glad I remember almost nothing from the horror that was Maria in Auckland. The match against Pennetta was pretty dire too, literally ZERO footwork. What's weird is that she always seems sharp as fuck during the night sessions but comes across really clumsy and tired during day sessions in NY.

That was such a random loss.

Re: Worst match your favorite played during 2011?

4th round vs Pironkova at Wimbledon. Pironkova playing at 70%, and Venus looking clumsy, ungainly, robotic and SO slow.... on grass. The amount of stationary sitters Venus missed were just

Pironkova did everything efficiently (including some fine serving in the final game), but she was hardly inspired. She played at least 20x better in 2010. As did Venus

I really thought she was gonna make a comeback after her set points
her losses to Parra and Hercog in Madrid and Rome were as well.

Stosur vs. Bartoli at Eastbourne, losing 3-6 1-6. She played so bad there, littering the court with unforced errors.
