Yep, these past two years especially have had a lot of brutal moments.
And not just in finals. You obviously had the US Open semifinal defeat to Vika, which was really tough because Maria was in great position to actually win in a rout and change the dynamic of the rivalry in a big way. 6-2, 1-0, 40-15. 2 points to consolidate that break. Ugh..
But the worst loss EVER for me will be the 2011 French semi against Li Na. The way Maria gagged every single big point still leaves me speechless.
