Davenport losing to Venus in Wimbledon final '05 was another epic peaking player losing a match that nobody deserved to lose.

Hingis vs. Venus USO 2000 SF.

That overhead though It was a pretty good lob from Venus though and forced Hingis to hit it on her back foot.

Ivanovic/Jankovic Rg 2008. I don't think Jelena could have played any better, and Ana still managed to beat her.

It was her peak before 2011. In 2011 she played better - especially in Carlsbad and Beijing. But it`s not mean that her match vs. Wickmayer was great.

Serena DID NOT play her best against Clijsters in '09. Clijsters was and will always be a glorified pusher. Did you watch the match?
