The most interesting/surprising/humiliating h2h?

I have been a huge fan of Mary Joe's and her worst enemy was always Steffi to whom she lost 15+ matches from her first and last meetings with the German. This is the worst and most humiliating h2h I could think of.
If we could include families, then my vote would have to go to the Maleevas against, again, Steffi. Combining all the three sisters, they beat Steffi ZERO time if my memory serves and they played her more than 30 times in total!

Serena vs Lindsay 9-2. Not even at the top of her levels, Lindsay couldn´t handle Serena. Some really beatings out there.

Serena vs Kim 9-1. Some were close, but still...

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Conchita is 21:6 against the Maleeva (and 5 of those wins came from Manuela! I guess this stat is misleading as Manuela actually has a favorable H2H 5-4)

yep, Graf went 17-0 with MJF, 21 - 0 with Tauziat, and 36 - 0 with the Maleeva sisters! Youd have thought Manuela would have beaten here in the mid 80s, but Graf crushed her 2 and 2 in 1985

Didn't one of the French women have zero wins against Steffi? Or maybe she was Belgian. Can't remember. Where's Irma?

But, the most humiliating loss to Steffi has to be Natasha's love-love final at the French in 1988.

Poor Mary Joe almost won the French Open against Stef in 1993. I think that still haunts Mary Joe but it doesn't stop her from still being friends with Stef (their kids have play dates together).

It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile, winning's winning
