For me I think Dementieva-Wozniacki would have to take the cake. No plan B on Elena's part and their matches were always such long grinds :sobbing:. I can't think of a worse matchup. I bet in hell, their matches are played on loop.

I liked Elena-Caro matches
It was fun watching caro hitting everything to Elena's BH with Elena hitting crosscourt 99% of the time

Horrible match-ups :

Kuznetsova vs Wozniacki is definitely the most frustrating to watch.

SuperNa against most players is okay. ErrorNa against anyone is a complete horror.

ErrorNa vs Pelletier. Never forget. :sad:

Henin - Clijsters :oh:
I jest, but their Sydney 2010 Final was a comedy of errors - usually they have some epics though

and I agree with everyone, Masha - Li

Itīs actually one of the best match-ups on tour. Itīs the sad turns it takes almost every time thatīs frustrating so many fans. :lol: And it turns pretty shitty toward the inevitable end after Kuznetsova made a last hopelessly unsuccessful push. :angel:

Li against most players, but Sharapova in particular. Stosur too.

Li Na is the rare player that tends to play better matches against Serena than the other top women she faces.

Kerber vs Errani :hysteric:

I don't know, I have fun with this match-up. I thought the USO match was a fun watch, although it would definitely be better if Kerber won.

Sharapova vs Radwanska matches also tend to be absolute shitfests. That Miami final where Sharapova couldn't get a break point on Radwanska's serve is a proof of that. There's also Yuri leaving the stadium at US Open 2007, their up and down match in Roland Garros last season and others.

Any involving Errani. The Istambul match with Radwanska was endless. The ball seemed to travel in slow motion.

Sharapova - Li is definitely number 1, they just outshit each other in their matches, it's like who can miss the most. aybe they thought UE are the new Winners. It's just plainly horrible.

Not the ugliest but those Zvonareva vs. Wozniacki matches from 2010 were a snoozefest.

True but good matches aren't always beautiful... I mean Wozniacki can play really well yet make it look really bad at times.

i would say serena/venus

Their matches are really painful to watch, usually not good quality either due to nerves.

Vika-Kerber was definitely the worst!

That's actually one of the best match-ups currently on tour. Kerber brings out the best in Azarenka's already remarkable sense of point construction while Azarenka, who loves playing cross court and moving the ball around, gives loads of angles for Kerber to work with. Their 3 meetings this year were all exceptional, especially the YEC one.

There are so many to choose from today but, last year I was at Wimbledon for the Ivanovic vs Goerges match...was like having teeth pulled. Easy on the eyes though....
