Re: The most dominant tournament win of your favorite player?
As a fan of Sabine Lisicki, I would say her most dominant win that I have witnessed was her 3rd round victory over Irina Falconi at the 2011 USO. The linescore was 6-0; 6-1 and the contest was even more lopsided than that score would normally suggest. It wasn’t as if Falconi was committing a plethora of UEs but instead Sabine was relentlessly hitting winners after winners. I watched the match on ESPN3; the commentators were Barry McKay and either Woodbridge or Woodforde I forget which and the pair of them were a hoot. Almost from the first point of the match one could tell it was not going to be pretty for Irina. During her third service game, Falconi took the first three points to get to a 40-0 lead and the commentator wryly observed “Well Falconi has a chance to hold serve here.” And he said it with considerable doubt that she would hold. Sure enough Sabine took the next five points. During the second set as obviously Sabine was cruising to victory in a most efficient manner and as it was around 3:30 PM local time, McKay asked: “You don’t suppose Sabine has made an early dinner reservation she has to get to?” and the other commentator quipped: “Yep seems like she has a hot date that she doesn’t want to miss.”
