Cirstea's forehand at 9:55 it's gotta be over 100 mph.

Re: What is the "peak" of every player?

Re: What is the "peak" of every player?

I think we can all agree this is peak Kvitova (2010 Wimbledon 4R: df. Wozniacki 6-2 6-0).



Or this, (2011 Wimbledon 4R: df. Wickmayer 6-0 6-2)

There isn't any full length highlights vid, but Kim did everything right in her RR mach against Kuznetsova at the YEC of 2006.

Yeah that was an awesome performance but I'd rate her Ozzy Open thrashing of Sharapova slightly higher. She clearly wanted to show the world that she was not a spent force and basically placed Sharapovas decapitated head on a stick for all to see. It was an absolutely terrifying display of ferocity.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Peak Legend:

She fucked Venus up here. The BOLDNESS she hit with in this match almost made her appear a BBB.



From 1-4 down, unplayable. You don't need to watch the ball just watch her feet and court positioning.



Almost perfect.





That's enough for now.
