What is the "peak" of every player?
 
Off season :tears:

While everyone is making hundreds of "Peak Player A vs. Peak Player B" threads let's discuss what the peak of each player is. Try to narrow it down as much as possible, as in either a tournament or even a single match. And include videos. :p

Omg I forgot about that one :eek: Serena was scary in that match, she badly wanted revenge over Mauresmo after losing to her in Rome just a few weeks before :oh:

One of my all time faves



and this one this year

Stonerpova Nov 15th, 2012 04:19 AM

Re: What is the "peak" of every player?
 
Peak Serena is against Stosur in Charleston this year. Never seen her play better.

Sharapova was also GOAT against Peer in Fed Cup, and and against Kerber in Beijing this year (despite the retirement).

This is Serena's peak match:



She has come close to this form just a few times in her career, but never reached it again.
