IMO, it's Serena vs. Stosur--fire vs. ice!

None.

The world number #1 and 2, routinely get their ass whipped by LordRena the world #3 on a frequent basis. :tape: :tape:

The only highest quality matches should be coming from Top players and right now there isn't much.

Azarenka-Kerber is always good :shrug:

Serena-Ivanovic is usually quite well-contested, even though Serena still wins in straight sets.

I think of Dubai '09 and USO '11. Good matches as straight-setters can be.

Aga-Woz. I enjoyed it even more this year with Aga getting the wins :)

I was just going to say this! I thought their match in Indian Wells, while being one sided, was a great watch. Played a corker at the Olympics and their match in Istanbul was crazy good.

Venus against Stosur. The matches in Charleston and Cincinnati were awesome!

I'd agree with Azarenka-Kerber, their game styles match up really well to produce great tennis imo.

Aga-Woz. I enjoyed it even more this year with Aga getting the wins :)

I don't really enjoy this match-up. :tape: Yes, there are some interesting rallies from time to time but for the most part I think it's boring to watch two players that are barely able to hit winners from the baseline and often have difficulties to end a point at the net, also everything looks like in slow-motion when they're playing. But I do enjoy watching both up against someone with an aggressive and powerful game.

Their matches this year weren't their best. I liked the Indian Wells 2010 and Stuttgart 2011 matchups particurarly the latter. I'd have to look at the tapes but it was one of the more entertaining matches of 2011 I think.

I enjoy Azarenka-Serena match-ups. Azarenka almost always brings a very consistent level of play to the table, which forces Serena to raise hers. Azarenka-Sharapova is somewhat similar, except if Azarenka is playing at a higher level, its not really possible for Sharapova to quickly shift into the upper gear to beat her. Nonetheless their matches are quite good quality.

Serena-Ana is one of the ugliest match-ups. Bar a couple of really flashy winners its all really bad.

Ana with her hack and pray forehand enrages Serena whenever she does make a good fh winner after 50 failed attempts. Serena goes into this 'I will clobber you by showing my forehand is better than yours' tactic and the matches become way more competitive than they should.

Azarenka-Kerber is always good :shrug:

Yup that would have been my pick. In general great defensive vs. offensive match-ups tend to create the best matches, especially these days, when people only focus on the poor shots, when two huge shotmakers play. Kerber takes these match-up to a little higher level than Wozniacki or Radwanska, because of her own ability and willingness to take chances, when she has openings.

Your opinion I guess. Personally I enjoy the matchup.

Maria - Lisicki
Vika - Kerber
Sveta - Serena


If Lena D was still around she would've featured in many a match-up. Her consistent mechanical groundstrokes and great defence make for a great match

I quite liked Kuznetsova-Serena matches before. Now my pick would also be Azarenka-Kerber.

Yes and no. She featured in some of the most horrific match-ups on tour also.

her hilarious lopsided scorelines with JJ were :bowdown:
in fact, a meeting between JJ + Lena D was of great quality, whether it was 06 60 75 or w/e

They were like those car-crashes in films that you had to see in case limbs went flying or something. They're very guilty pleasures.

This was in Moscow 2008, but in 2009 Jankovic won 7:6, 0:6 and 7:6 against Dementieva.

Azarenka vs Kerber is probably the highest quality match up these days, they match up really well.

LordRena had me scared, didn't they play 3rd Round in Wimby this year?

I thought Rena was going to make a 3rd round exit at Wimby this year, that match was SO CLOSE. :tape: :tape:
