Re: Maria's best match in 2012?
I'll go with the Stuttgart Final against Vika. Maria was totally dominant and in control from start to finish. You could tell there was no way she was going lose after what happened in Melbourne and Indian Wells. That was as determined and focused as I saw her all year.
31 winners to only 13 UFEs. 8 aces to 3 DFs. 63% first serves. Only 3/11 on break chances, but she put the pressure on Vika all day and was so superior. A great performance to bring home the title.
