Peak Kournikova



Quite the advertising campaign and she'd just beaten Graf so definitely peak Kournikova here!

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

Peak Venus' matches being against Radwanska and Safina who's useless on grass




Some nominees:

2005 Wimbledon v. Sharapova
2001 USO v. Capriati
Not a match but her beating Henin, Capriati and Davenport in like 2 days in New Haven 2001 (IIRC)
2008 Wimbledon v. Serena

Not all peak matches need to result in beatdowns where you only lose a maximum of 3 games.

Venus hit 16 winners and 1 unforced error in that 6-1 6-0 win over Safina. I think it deserves a mention. Peak isn't necessarily how many glorious and spectacular winners you hit either, it's about if you can do it without missing, and 1 unforced error says a lot.

If you look at the OP there are several matches where the winner dropped more than "3 games". And I'm still getting around to adding some of the other matches which people have mentioned, including those of Venus.

Bye.

It's absolutely the Wickmayer one - Woz wasn't playing all that well.
I remember watching that match, where Yanina just started laughing in the second set. I just knew Petra was the Wimbledon favorite from that match on

Peak Shvedova obviously .



Oh and Kvitova VS Wickmayer . That must be one of the best performances ever by a woman.

I never said it didn't deserve to be there. It's just ridiculous for Vee to have only 2 entries and against such weak competition.

Um, "peak" doesn't necessarily mean you have to have beaten a multiple Grand Slam champion for it to count. It's about the level you play at, not the competition you beat. 16 winners and 1 unforced errors says enough. We all agree that Kvitova's 6-0 6-2 win over Wickmayer is her peak, but does that mean that Wickmayer is the best player she has ever beaten? Nope. Otherwise I'd put the video up of her beating Sharapova in straight sets in the final, but that wouldn't make sense as her level of play wasn't as good.

And once again I still haven't finished adding all the videos, and yes I am planning on adding some of those that you have mentioned, so chill out

I don't think USO VS Masha is peak Wozniacki when she didn't hit any winners in the first set .
