Being so dominant en route to the final and end up losing it must be a record as well. lol

Even as someone who isn't a particularly big fan of her, that final hurts

Arantxa was lucky it rained during that final and the clay was incredibly slow

Re: Peak Pierce in 1994 Roland Garros

I'm so impressed the way she gave those beatdowns on clay. She must have been in really great form. It's understandable when someone did in on grass but on clay? Such amazing results.

Exclamation Re: Peak Pierce in 1994 Roland Garros

I remember the French press calling her victories "ŕ la Lenglen", another queen of bagels and breadsticks...

But that final loss was coitus interruptus... Even more losing to ASV. She was destined to "balayer" her off the court and then...

Congrats Serene Rose Zhang for an eviscerating AO!!!

Such dominance consistent beat downs like that are just phenomenal, especially on clay. Shame the final never really happened...

ASV>Nervous Pierce in first French Open final

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Re: Peak Pierce in 1994 Roland Garros

Poor Pierce, she should have erased Sanchez-Vicario from the face of the planet Thank God she won it in the end

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

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

Re: Peak Pierce in 1994 Roland Garros

Fortunately, Pierce revenged that loss by annihilating ASV in the AO final one year later.

Azarenka - Pennetta - Hantuchova - Ivanovic - Wozniacki - Stephens - Stosur
