Best Performance of the Year



By "best" I essentially mean most consistently sharp and dominating, as in players who were in the zone for almost the entire match.

Re: Best Performance of the Year

Serena def. Stosur, Charleston SF. The best performance by a woman EVER as far as I'm concerned.

I just wanna mention Sharapova's annihilation of Kerber at Beijing because those were probably the best 9 consecutive games she's ever played.

BEFORE I AM BITCHED OUT TO HIGH HEAVENS: I meant to put SHARAPOVA DEF. AZARENKA STUTTGART FINAL, NOT SHARAPOVA DEF. WOZNIACKI.

Oh yeah, sorry Serena but this is objectively the most dominant performance in 2012.



Seriously though, fantastic stuff from Shvedova. The peakiest of all peaks. Your fave could never.

Re: Best Performance of the Year

No Golden set in the poll? You can't get more dominant in a set of tennis.

As far as overall match though, Serena vs Stosur.

Shvedova-Muguruza-Garcia-Lisicki

Re: Best Performance of the Year

Sharapova d. Wozniacki 6-1 6-4 at Stuttgart? WOZNIACKI?

Anyways Serena d. Stosur in Charleston or Maria d. Kerber in Beijing.

Re: Best Performance of the Year

Serena vs Stosur was an epic massacre, still dont know how she got those 2 games. That was close to peak Pierce level

As for one set, Shvedova golden set OBVIOUSLY. It will be a very, very long time until someone (or her ) does it again.

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”

Re: Best Performance of the Year

Nobody should be picking Olympic final. It was a windy day and we all know how Maria plays in the wind . Serena was steadier but it was nothing more than a good day from her, coupled by a terrible day for Maria.

Charleston was Stosur's best surface and she was made to look like a junior .
