Best and worst match of 2012

Best (one sided): Serena Williams def. Victoria Azarenka (Wimbledon)

Absolutely nothing Azarenka could do except watch missiles fly past her. Victoria wasn't playing that badly herself.

Best (close match): No match comes to mind.

Worst: (one sided): No match comes to mind.

Worst (close match): Maria Sharapova def. Li Na (Rome)

Horrendous errors, choking.

What are your picks?

Kim Clijsters always in my heart

Re: Best and worst match of 2012

Best (one sided): Serena Williams def. Maria Sharapova (Wta Championships)

Masha was good , but Serena was the best possible on HC these days

Best (close match): Maria Sharapova def Samantha Stosur (Stuttgart)

Worst: (one sided): Shvedova def Sara Errani (Wimbledon) Golden Set , enough said.... next candidate is Sam Stosur in Istanbul and Mashenka at Olympics, but it's more about total domination of one player vs the other

if just quality wise the worst match in 2 sets was Maria Sharapova def Li useless Na (Miami)

Worst (close match): Li Na def Sabine Lisicki (Miami) Both girls should be ashamed of their performance

Maria Sharapova
Career Grand Slam Winner
Wimbledon 2004 ~ US Open 2006 ~ Australian Open 2008 ~ French Open 2012 and 2014

WTA Championships 2004
London Olympics silver medallist

35 WTA titles , including 14 Tier I titles

Re: Best and worst match of 2012

I thought Razzano def. Serena at the FO was pretty entertaining, in terms of drama anyway, otherwise it was pretty shite.

Re: Best and worst match of 2012

I missed quite a lot of the mentioned matches but I really enjoyed the Eastbourne final. I suppose I wasn't expecting an awful lot from it but the rallies were very intense plus there was the drama with Paszek saving all those MPs. So many finals have been damp squibs but this one definitely surpassed expectations.

Wozniacki vs. Li in Tokyo was garbage quality on the other hand. It was just laughable at some points.

Re: Best and worst match of 2012

Drama wise, Razzano-Serena and Clijsters-Li comes to my mind.

Re: Best and worst match of 2012

Best (one sided): Serena def. Sharapova (London Olympics)
Best (close match): Serena def. Azarenka (USO final)
Worst: (one sided): Can't think of any bad one sided matches.
Worst (close match): Niculescu vs. Cornet (AO, don't even remember who won it)

Petra Kvitova - Li Na - Lucie Safarova - Madison Keys
