What do you think is the worst match your favourite player has played on any surface in their entire career?

As a Masha fan I'm spoilt for choice. Although I would have to pick A0 '11 R4 against Petko. She didn't even manage to play erratic that day, if the ball went over the net it landed out. :o

Too many to choose from.
Some examples are:

2012 Doha lost to Azarenka :rolleyes:
2012 AO lost to Azarenka :rolleyes:
2011 Madrid lost to Gajdosova :facepalm:
USO losses to Kerber and Peng :sobbing:

and probably worst of all: 2009 IW lost to Pavlyuchenkova :spit:

This is about the 5th time on this forum I've seen someone refer to Sharapova/Petkovic from 11 OZ as a quarterfinal match. It was a R16. Please get it right people!! We are not yahoo sports.

chak always gets metioned for her us open semi final, but it was her 07 fall indoor loss to patty that was truely horrible. she had garenteed playing the YEC, was tired and probably still had a hangover from that us open sf. she won one game against patty IIRC and that was from 2 break points down, prehaps the most disintrested i have ever seen her and she aimed for the fences.

Too many :lol:

Masha's loss to Oudin at the USO 2009 was beyond embarrassing, especially after what Oudin has done with her career. A set up and then everything failed...

21 double faults + 63 UE :help: :spit:

Close runner up is that loss to Arn is Auckland last year was disgusting as well...straight sets loss to a journeywoman :hysteric:

Alla fucking Kudryavsteva at Wimbledon '08. Played like completely useless shit against a terrible player.

I also wanted to gauge my eyes out watching her against Oudin and Wozniacki in IW

Maria- The Oudin loss, then the loss to Aga at USO 07. Girl just couldn't keep the ball in court.
Aga - the recent Doha loss of course :oh: then that AO 1r against Queen Beth. She did NOTHING in the first set.
Na - too many to mention since she basically hits herself off the court half the time, but the USO loss to Halep was BAD.

Actually, now that I think of it USO '11 R3 against Pennetta fucks me right off. Especially since she got back to 4-4 in the 3rd only to double fault and error her way to the loss. And it was her only 3 set defeat of the season :o

I get that is was clay. I get that it was slow nasty clumpy clay. I get that Lindsay was starting to seriously think about retiring. But a fucking bagel? Seriously?

Honorable mention to the 2005 US Open quarterfinal against Dementieva.

Wozniacki vs Kvitova 2010 Wimbledon. Granted that Petra was playing insanely well but Caro, in the words of the commies, was 'seeing double' for a large part of the match. Was making schoolgirl errors and missing routine shots on almost every point in the 2nd set.

Also honorable mention to her loss to McHale. She had no pace on any of her shots and her backhand was the worst I have ever seen.

in 09, she had just won Rosmalen for a second time and coming off a QF appearance at Wimbledon in 08. It was her only 1R loss at Wimbledon in the 11 years she played it at that point.

It depends on the context. If we mean just horrible tennis, then there are a TON of matches from 2006 & 2007, or even 2002, when Hingis was near retirement.

However, if we're talking about the WORST match she played out of nowhere, where she was expected to win or play well, I'd have to say the 2001 AO final for sure. Hingis had dominated the last couple of months, and to lose to Capriati of all players in a stream of unforced errors was such an anti-climax.

Yes. Does it get any lower than losing to Stosur in a final? Yet alone a grand slam final.

No other match even comes close. At least at Wimbledon 05' she was completely out of shape.
