Re: Shortest WTA match?

It's crazy/sad that one of the shortest matches in history was also a GS final (Graf/Zvereva) Poor Natasha

Muguruza Kerber
Venus Cetkovska
Safarova Kvitova

I think Kim beat Rossana De Los Rios in 31 minutes at 2003 Wimbledon.

Re: Shortest WTA match?

In the 1922 Wimbledon final Suzanne Lenglen defeated Molla Mallory, 6–2, 6–0, in 23 minutes. Some accounts state that the match was over in 20 minutes.
In the 1925 Wimbledon final Lenglen defeated Joan Fry in 25 minutes, 6–2, 6–0.
But it was not called WTA during this period !

Re: Shortest WTA match?

So for a WTA match it is still Graf-Zvereva so far. Any shorter ones? (WTA only)

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

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

32 minutes actually. I guess that ties it with Graf-Zvereva as the shortest ever WTA match.

Do you take in consideration WTA qualification?
In this case
2011 Tashkent Open - WTA International 220 000 USD Qualifications
Madalina Gojnea (1) - Liliya Izmaylova (WC -USB) 6-0 6-0 in 25 minute.

But what Steffi did in a Slam final is really impressive.

Did she even do anything?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

2004

Serena's shortest (to my knowledge) is her 35 minute demolition of Basting at Wimbledon in 2000. At that same tournament she also beat Raymond in 41 minutes and Tanasugarn in 46 minutes, in the QF and R16 respectively.
