Yeah but there are many matches like this where one player is not high quality (look at my list, it's always 2 great champions against each others and when they are both in top level ie. not kids, no distractions, just some honest bitch-slapping).

Clue: a certain Californian beating a certain Muscovite 6-2, 6-2 (I think), USO 2002.

Obviously you don't know what bitch-slapping is. A bitch-slapping has to leave the opponent helpless, Martina barely edged Monica in the 2nd set, she didn't bitch-slap her at the end. Actually Monica bitch-slapped Martina 2 times in grandslams, Martina has never done it in a slam because the last set always was 6-4, or 7-5 or whatever. A bitch-slapping has to end at least with a 6-2 or 6-1 or 6-0 and has to be in straight sets.

not that ANYONE in this thread is biased

i agree w/ leena - Graf def. Zvereva 6-0 6-0 in a final!

Lindsay Davenport - Anna Smashnova - Lisa Raymond - Sandrine Testud - Paola Suarez - Amelie Mauresmo - Virginia Ruano-Pascual - Nadia Petrova - Chanda Rubin - Cara Black - Tathiana Garbin - Anne Kremer - Monica Seles - Fabiola Zuluaga - Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo - Amanda Coetzer - Rita Grande - Meghann Shaughnessy - Magui Serna - Nathalie Dechy - Kim Clijsters - Elena Tatarkova - Maria Sharapova - Alicia Molik - Julia Vakulenko - Elena Likhovtseva - Anastasia Myskina - Emilie Loit

Zvereva was a top 5 player sometime in '88, I believe... which was as high as Mary ever got.

Mary is a multiple grandslam champion and I'm sure she got at least to no.3. Zvereva is a nobody compared to anyone in the poll.

Well everyone knows that the grunt is the cause of the score, otherwise you wouldn't have brought it up yourself either Stick to the topic, we are talking about real bitch-slapping. And please do not bring up some match in 1989

According to the bitch-slapping definition that will follow, Monica has never been bitch-slapped in a grandslam. Live with it.

-Both players have to be in top form (not kids, not injured, no distractions)
-Match has to end in straight sets with an easy last set (6-0 or 6-1 or 6-2).
-Match has to have at most 7 games.

funny how the poll has three of Graf's losses and none of her wins, and four of Seles' wins, but none of her losses.

i'll go with Graf B-S Seles 62 61 in the final of Wimbledon. or maybe Graf B-S ASV 60 62 in the final of Australia 94. or Maybe evert B-S seles 60 62 in the fourth round of the 1989 USO. or what about Venus B-S Seles 6-2 6-3 in the QF of the USO last year?

and by the way, if seles d Navratilova counts as a "bitch-slap" then so does the much more one-sided Hingis-Seles USO match.
