Can someone make a compilation of 4 pics of the photosessions after the victory, where she isn't in tennis clothes? You know, Masha with the trophy in NY, Paris, Wimby grounds etc...

It's hard to decide.

Wimbledon will always be special because it was her first, and Wimbledon is probably the most special one to win for the players.
The Us Open because she was no longer a One-Slam-Wonder, that dress, and that hilarious moment with the trophy.
The Australian Open because of the exceptional form she showed.
Roland Garros because it's almost like a fairy-tale how she won them all in order, and the story of fight and endless determination that's behind it; completing the career Slam, first tennis player to win a Slam after shoulder surgery, first Russian to hold all four, she got back to number one etc, etc.

This is exactly the reason I came out with this poll :lol:

Emotionally they were all pretty special so it's hard to decide. But form-wise, definitely AO 2008. That was the moment that I thought she could dominate and rule the entire tennis world. :sobbing:

AO 08 because of the amazing set of tennis displayed.
RG 12 from an emotional point of view.

Aus open. she was so full of confidence and was playing unbelievably well. You can see it in her face how much belief she had in all 7 matches and she was just so in the zone which is something I really miss.

Form-wise, deffinitely AO 08.

This! :worship:

For me, it's RG because of all the stuff that she went through and history surrounding it. And emotionally, I think that one and Wimbledon are her dearest. But I agree that if we watch only her tennis, definitely AO 2008 :hearts:

AO was a great moment because she played unbelievably well. And she played incredibly well at the USO, beating the top two ranked players. And that dress :hearts:

Even still, she could win 10 more slams and none of them would top RG for me. What a moment it was.

WowWow

they were all fabulous runs, but i went with wimbledon as it was her first, and it was the tournament which made me fall in love with her !

Definitely Wimbledon. The tennis she displayed on grass was breath-taking. Beating players like relevant Dokic, relevant Hantuchova, Peak Sugiyama, Peak Davenport and Serena Williams on grass = :worship:. None of her other GS title runs really stand up to this batch of wins IMO. Altho the fact she beat Henin twice in two of her GS victories is also very impressive.

She didn't beat Dokic at Wimbledon 2004. She beat her the year before (2003) :D

Haha I always confuse the Dokic win with 2004 for some reason. :lol: Thanks for correcting. :)

Australian Open for sure. It wasn't just Peakpova in terms of her game, it was absolute Peakpova mentally - she just had a glint in her eye which let you know there was no way she was leaving the tournament without the trophy. As Virginia Wade said immediately after that final, "the most impressive Grand Slam run from anyone since Steffi Graf" :worship:

I might have to change my answer to the AO after re-watching her QF versus Henin. Other than reasons already stated, this tournament also displayed Peak Swaggerpova. I love the way she bitch stomped all over the court. She was out for blood the entire event :lol:

Can you read my mind? That was exactly what I was thinking :)
I'm voting for wimbledon because that was the first time I saw her and she played so well in the final. What a fearless 17 year old she was. But every slam is very special. Now complete this collection with olympic medal :bounce:

Thats how i feel. The way she powered through that tournament i will never forget. Roland Garros 2012 was pretty special too.

Totally agree. There was 0% doubt in my head she was going to win. Her strut around the court had such a confident aura to it, very different from the pova we see today.

Personally it's her AO '08 run because she was just so dominant! I want her to play in such form again! I wonder what will be the outcome if she would've faced Serena (instead of Jelena) in her form then...
