I don't know someone eralier in the thread said Sharapova was playing well at the Olympics 2012 and so for some reason I though Griffin was laughing at that. I'm under the impression that you think this is a really big deal.

I agree about Maria playing at her peak in YEC2007 but still lost to Peak Henin.
One of the best YEC finals if not the best ever.

I actually think this happens a lot against Rena. Some players play peak, but still can't beat her.

Henin owns Serena on clay and she's backed up that FO title with 3 more consecutive titles. Serena has now had plenty of chances to get a second FO title now that Henin is gone and has failed on each occasion.

You're such a joke. You start blah blahing, talking non-sense: 10 % this, lucky shots that.. whereas you didn't even KNOW what people were talking about.

You see a post about Serena and you can't think straight.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Agreed. The best I've seen Wozniacki play against a quality opponent.

Dementieva played much better in her '05 QF Filderstadt match vs Clijsters than in the Wimby SF of '09. People actually forget when Dementieva's actual 'peak' was.

You wish.

No way was Henin at her peak there. Her peak was USO 2007 and she went downhill from there - even though she won all the tournaments she entered. If she was at her peak, it wouldn't have taken her so long to win that YEC final.
