Not a total peak one, but Sharapova vs Wozniacki at USO. That was a high quality match.

LOL..to even suggest that Pova was anywhere near her decent level, let alone peak in that atrocious match...

Sharapova-Pierce US Open 2004

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

It was one of her better hardcourt matches of 2010 IIRC. Sure she was still a mess (she was serving at 3-4, 40-30 and double-faulted 3 times to get broken and lose the set, she was also abysmal on break points throughout) but Woz probably played the match of her career.

thread title says "players playing at their peak" - in other words playing their absolute best and still losing... Nobody sane would even suggest that Sharapova was playing good tennis in 2010, no matter how much they hate her

I know Which is why I said it was one of her better 2010 HC matches, aka the worst season of her career.

even in that depressing year she played much better against Clijsters in Cincy before she started that monumental choke (and injured herself in the process). Moonballniacki did nothing out of ordinary in that US Open encounter - just waited for Maria to self-destruct like in every single match of hers in those Dark Ages of female tennis

OMG I didn't say it was her best

I shouldn't have said anything.

Shahar. I wish she could regain that form.

Agreed. It was a shame either of them had to lose (Venus or Davenport). That was the greatest single WTA match I have ever seen.
