Re: Shortest WTA match?

The match was not 33 min, it was 52.

Graf d. Zvereva 6-0 6-0 1988 Roland Garros F in 32 minutes is shortest I can recall.

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

Re: Shortest WTA match?

Kim must have had a really short one somewhere. Won her early matches very quickly and easily plus she was very fast between points.

Re: Shortest WTA match?

Kim's demolition of Safina at the AO couldn't have been more than 45 minutes. I also remember Serena bitchslapping Capriati in 45 minutes at Wimbledon one year. But yeah, the '88 FO final is by the shortest I can recall (before Li's match today, that is).

To be fair, they didn't have television changeovers back then (90 seconds after games 3, 5, 7, etc., two minutes between sets if there's no bathroom break), nor did players take as much time between points as they do now. Still, if you went to the concession stand or the bathroom after the first game of that Graf-Zvereva match, you probably missed match point.

Actually the shortest match in women's tennis history was Nicola Slater defeating Andrea Paredes, the Chilean transsexual, 6-0 6-0 in 25 minutes in some ITF tournament in South America

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.

Re: Shortest WTA match?

According to Wikip:

Margaret Court won the 1963 Eastern Grass Court Championships crown in a record 24-minute match.

Re: Shortest WTA match?

I'm sure if a list was compiled Steffi and Monica would feature several times in the top 100 - ridiculously efficient and ruthless!

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
