Serena DID NOT play her best against Clijsters in '09. Clijsters was and will always be a glorified pusher. Did you watch the match?

It was her peak before 2011. In 2011 she played better - especially in Carlsbad and Beijing. But it`s not mean that her match vs. Wickmayer was great.

Ivanovic/Jankovic Rg 2008. I don't think Jelena could have played any better, and Ana still managed to beat her.

Hingis vs. Venus USO 2000 SF.

That overhead though It was a pretty good lob from Venus though and forced Hingis to hit it on her back foot.

Forever in love with my best friend and true love it girl.
