Ana, the only one I remember is against Hingis at Montreal 06. Never taken to deuce on serve. 6-2 6-3 for her first Tier I. :worship:

Justine - Bartoli , Masters Madrid 2007 , in Round Robin. :)
She destroyed her 6-0 6-0, never faced a break or even game point. :inlove: Sweet revenge.

Well, Sharapova didn't face any break points against Lindsay at the 2008 Australian Open.

I did not enjoy that, even if Maria is my current active favourite :o

Except the first game. I had woken up to see the deuce in the first game before getting too tired and decided to go to bed...so scared was I...but the double bagel was just :rolls:

one of my favorites: Wimbledon 2005 QF against Pierce (then reigning French Open finalist). Great stuff from Venus.

The tiebreak was :drool: I remember. Venus was desperate to win in straights and Mary was trying so hard to bring it to the third set.

Did Maria get a BP in the 6-0 6-0 match? If not I'll go with that one :drool:

Venus was desperate to win in straights and Mary was trying so hard to bring it to the third set.yeah. the tiebreaker was serious! great play from both players. there was one point that Venus won late in the breaker where Venus showed so much emotion with this fist pump that said "Not, today." :worship:

I am going to my video archives to look for it! :lol:

It was a Deuce at the first game, but not a break point for Marion ;) Justine was serving firstly.

You should have watched this pleasure, it was simply poetry in motion from Justine :drool: I was almost died laughing too hard !!! :lol: :tape: :hug: Marion.

Ana had a few 0-30's in the second set and a couple deuces but Maria was just too good that day :sad: And Ana didn't play as well as she did against Sveta and Dani. But all credit to Maria, great match she played.

Ana didn't face break point against de los Rios in Wimbledon either. ;)

She almost did it against Venus in the previous round; no break points faced until that multi-deuce final game :lol:

"Davenport didn't face a break point on her serve. She fired nine aces and connected on 74 percent of her first serves against Petrova, a first-time singles qualifier in the championships."

She also didn't face any break points on her 6-0 6-2 trashing against Caro and she didn't also face any break point on her comeback match against Daniilidou. :eek:

EDIT: She also didn't face any break point against Sprem in the Wimbledon QF.

EDIT2: Davenport hasn't allowed a single break point in 4 matches in a row! (vs Wozniacki, Erakovic and Govortsova in Memphis and then vs Dulko in Indian Wells!)

They were 6-6 in second set tiebreak. Pierce had just missed two setpoint opportunities.
Venus was serving, hit fh dtl and Pierce hit an amazing crosscourt winner, YET Venus gets there in time slices it back, but is completely out of position. The crowd roars as it appears that Pierce may have a easy put away with Williams out of position. She gets to the ball and hits it just long. Venus pumps her fist and explodes with passion.

Mary Joe commenting: "That shows just how much she wants this." The rest, as they say, is literally history: Venus Williams 2005 Wimbledon Champion after playing the longest women's match in Wimbledon history and winning despite being matchpoint down.

So, sorry Linds. :sad:

Ouch :sad: Venus, Lindsay, Mary, they all deserved another slam at that point. Why did they all have to play well at the same time? :sobbing: 2005 had many good matches but many heartbreaks too.

All my favs and I would have been happy if either had won, but since Venus had not had a good result in a reaaaaaaally long time, I was (and am) so happy she pulled it out.
