WTA Indian Wells Semifinal - Ivanovic vs Sharapova. Ivanovic had to retire due to injury, although she was playing great tennis. Before that match she defeated Bartoli and Wozniacki (both top 10 at the moment). Match finished 6-4 0-1 in Sharapova's favour.

Olympic mixed Doubles final

For singles, I'd say Stosur vs Robson at USO.

For a non-Robson match, Serena vs Azarenka: USO. Partially because the reactions of Serena fans would have been fun to watch. But mostly because I cannot wait for the day when someone's able to step up to Serena and beat her when she's on form and allow for the question that Serena isn't the best player on tour any more. Dominance is boring.

Shvedova vs Vinci USO R2. She could have made the SF if she won that match.

This, or the Quarter Final against Kvitova at RG (where should would have deffo reached the semis)

How can you be so sure?:confused:

TBF, he said she could not that she would. Also, he's right. This would have been her path, given all the other results stayed the same...

R3: Cibulkova- Slava, even in poor form still beat her easily
R4: Aga- Aga was not in good form, and Slava would have had a good chance going into that match
QF: Errani- Slava is a bad match-up for Errani, as proven by their Wimbledon encounter this year

Obviously, nothing is certain. Vinci was the main obsticle in the way of Slava having a good tournament, because Roberta was in great form leading into the tournament. But Slava's head prevented her from winning in the end

Setsuna.
Nov 25th, 2012, 09:13 PM
How can you be so sure?:confused:

I'm not so sure but she had a great draw until the SF. Aga wasn't in good form back then and Errani isn't a problem for her at all on HC and grass. Plus she already beat Errani and Aga in a GS before so imo she missed a good chance to reach her 1st GS SF in USO this year.

Venus vs Kerber at the USO followed by Vee vs Kerber at the games.

Honestly, Miami or YEC final. Miami because it's Radwanska and now she's 0-4 in Fs there. YEC F because it would have A) been against Serena and B) given her amazing confidence for the offseason.

Ana.
Errani match at RG. No doubt in my mind.

Vera.
Makarova match at AO. She hasn't played much else so it's hard to say.

The rest of the year would have been quite different IMO if Ana had finished Sara off at RG. Ana probably could have made the semis (quarters at least IMO) and would have re-entered the top 10. Would then not have drawn Vika at Wimbly ... butterfly effect :p

On the other hand, she might not have made her first qf in NY so whatevs.

I would just like to clarify that I'm picking this match for what it could've done for Ana, not for the effect it would've had on Sara's ranking (she probably wouldn't have made the YEC)

Honourable mentions: IW semi final g (Masha-Ana), Rome 3rd round (Masha-Ana), AO final, USO 4R (Petra-Marion)

I was gonna say Serena v. Razzano, but even if Serena had won that it wouldn't have guaranteed her taking the title. Plus we've all seen what she's accomplished since that loss.

I'd probably have to go with Kim v. Vika at the Australian Open. Vika had a tough time putting away a sub-par Kim, and Kim would have had a great chance at taking the title given how abysmal Maria was in that final.

Also Venus v. Kerber USO. Venus showed such great fight, something I haven't felt from her in so long.

Serena is the best player on tour. No question about it. That's my problem with her. Dominance on that level is just not entertaining for me. If Azarenka had beaten Serena it would show that finally, there's someone on the tour that's capable of going up against Serena when she's in form at an event she's motivated to win and beat her. That makes the entire top of the tour a hell of a lot more interesting to me, just because the default answer to "who's going to win [insert Grandslam here]?" into an actual discussion rather than a foregone conclusion. I find the ATP dull for the same reason I'm not a fan of Serena, dominance by a small number of people is simply mindnumbingly dull.

As it stands, Serena is the boring invincible hero of the WTA. The undisputed best in the world, a dominant champion and incredibly dull because of it. When someone is able to beat her at her (current) best I may actually start following Serena more. However, this year it was not to be.

Stuttgart QF, Sharapova def. Stosur. I still think that was the match that decided who would dominate on clay this year.

Yes and no. Sam should NOT have lost to Errani. She produced arguably her biggest non-final headcase performance to lose after winning the second set so convincingly. It was painful to watch.

Sloane Stephens vs Petra Cetkovska at Wimbledon.

Edit: No actually, scratch that Petra Cetkovska vs Mathilde Johansson at RG. The cynic in me still thinks that was a family decision. :sobbing:

I agree, but it's my belief (which I can't prove) that Sam wouldn't have lost to Errani if she'd beaten Maria in Stuttgart.

Not that beating Maria would have made her invincible or anything, but the fact is that, up to her losing that SF in Paris, Sam played great for most of the clay season without any real reward. I think that fatally eroded her confidence when she needed it most.

Williams v Shvedova at Wimbledon. I'm not saying I'd change the final result but I'd like to have seen it concluded fairly. Making a player who wears prescription glasses play in the rain, forcing her to remove them, was ridiculous especially at that stage of the match. Had it been the marquee player wearing glasses we all know that play would have been suspended.

Olympic mixed Doubles final

For singles, I'd say Stosur vs Robson at USO.

For a non-Robson match, Serena vs Azarenka: USO. Partially because the reactions of Serena fans would have been fun to watch. But mostly because I cannot wait for the day when someone's able to step up to Serena and beat her when she's on form and allow for the question that Serena isn't the best player on tour any more. Dominance is boring.

How would losing one match bring about this? :lol::lol::lol:

She never even got to matchpoint though. :shrug:

I love Vika but I'm puzzled as to how people are looking at this loss. Yeah she served for it and holding your serve is key... but unless a player has/had match point (s) I don't buy into the woulda, shoulda, coulda.

ALL the freaking matches Venus lost, especially to Kerber, Vesnina and Aga.

I would rather my fave have two slams rather than one? Duh.

The OP is 'if you could change the outcome of one match in 2012.' There's no stipulations of 'only if the loser had match points.'

It's probably good Vika lost the USO final, I don't think you can get a much better wake up call that you need to improve your serve than having the chance to serve out a grand slam and failing miserably.

This is a really good point.

If we're to go along with the expected view (which i don't btw) that 2013 will be all about Vika/Maria/Rena then the ideal scenario is that Vika develops a better serve, because thats all thats stopping her competing with Serena on a hard court, their ground games being pretty even, Serena's explosiveness vs Victoria's relentless consistent power hitting.

It's obviously gotta be RG R1 loss to Virginie, only if there's some way to guarantee that it wouldn't affect the rest of her year... But even then, I never thought I would care any LESS about a R1 Slam loss than I do now. Probably an effect of having my fave bounce back by winning every remaining big event in what happens to be an olympic year :cool:
