Please.

The best match Kirilenko lost was probably against Stosur at the US Open 2012 or Zvonareva in Beijing 2010.

This. Best I've ever seen Kirilenko play period. That match was extremely high quality.

Venus Williams vs Kimiko Date-Krumm 2011 Wimbledon, maybe the best match since the comeback from Date-Krumm.

I have just watched the highlights of Hingis-Seles 2002 AO and I agree Seles plyed very well there. Those returns of serve and all the other winners... amazing

Re: Players playing at their peak and still losing the match

First match that comes to mind is Cornet vs. Safina at AO 2009, Cornet was at her peak ranking at that time if I recall correctly and she had matchpoints but ended up losing.

Watching her SF with Chaky would lead me to believe the bolded part is actually not a compliment .
