Marion has these ridiculous matches every so often where she looks unbeatable. It's astonishing to watch, her game has obvious limitations but when she gets in the zone it's just winners left and right. It seems to happen only against top ranked players too.

Peak Pierce 6-0 6-0.

Eee no. Peak Pierce would disspatch in straights (not losing more than 4 games) 2 of the best players of all time, peak Bartoli barely survived last night's match against Kvitova.

She won 12 of the last 14 games. That's not barely surviving. Yeah, she often has a poor first set before the rampage starts but she's destroyed some pretty good players at her peak.

hum no lmao. Peak Pierce won GS and made final GS against the best, won big tournaments and was constantly going deep in tournaments. Peak Bartoli struggles against an erratic Kvitova? lol

Obviously Peak Pierce could keep it up over a full tournament. Peak Bartoli only shows up for 2 sets at most. But she's scary good when she does.

Even peak Pierce, not always: the two matches that most people think of are her easy wins over Serena and Steffi but she lost in the next round both times. Hardly untouchable.

Bartoli at her peak is an excellent player but not really comparable to Mary unless she can beat elite players back to back.

Peak Pierce wouldn't have suffered that 6-1 loss of the first set :p

There's also 2000 Hilton Head where she bagelled and breadsticked everyone (including Seles and ASV) throughout the week and dropped only 12 games in the whole tournament. I think that record still stands as the fewest number of games lost in a tournament.

She's more peak Seles i'd say.

Probably. But it's not been hard to bagel Flopvitova this year.

Dont make me laugh. Peak Pierce is exagerrated and overrated on these boards by a long shot, but peak Bartoli still wouldnt be worthy of sniffing her shoes. Some Peak Pierce wins:

6-2, 6-2 over Steffi Graf 94 French
6-1, 6-0 over both Sanchez Vicario and Seles at 2000 Hilton Head (the bagel and breadstick were reversed, forget which was which but who cares)
6-1, 6-1 over Serena 2000 Miami
6-3, 6-2 over Sanchez Vicario 94 Australian Open final, no more than 6 games lost in any round that tournament

Peak Bartoli is a decent ball striker with alot of determination, nice angles, and okish movement for a really fat girl who can beat a big name on a mediocre or below day.

6-1, 6-1 over Seles at the FCC 2000, not 6-1, 6-0.
6-2, 6-1 over Serena at Indian Wells 2000, not 6-1, 6-1 in Miami.

6-0, 6-0 over Hingis at the Canadian Open in '95.

Pierce lost to Germana Di Natale (or someone equally random?) in her first match the week before she won RG in 2000.
