Really? I love Meghann's game and I've never seen any of those in youtube, I just remember a short clip of her beating Venus in Miami and I think it's gone.

I thought both were terrible in that match. Zheng played much better against Serena in their match in Canada in 2011 imo.

Re: Players playing at their peak and still losing the match

Zvonareva in the US Open 2010 final. There were a lot more quality and well-contested rallies than the scoreline indicates, but Vera was unlucky to have across the net someone who in peak form does everything that she does only significantly better.

Serena was at her post-2003 best in the US Open '09 semifinals. Played better that match than she did in any match in 2009 except maybe the AO final (and I'm not even trolling).

Sabatini and Sanchez Vicario's losses to Graf in Wimbledon finals spring to mind.

Serena vs. Clijsters US09. 3-slams-holder, World's number two Serena went nuts when realized despite playing her best mommy Kim was outplaying her in every way.

Serena's woodshedding of Azarenka in the Wimbledon quarters also stands out as one of her best of 09. Scary good.

Re: Players playing at their peak and still losing the match

Not sure if anyone posted this, but this is probably the best match I've seen Wozniacki play. So much more aggressive than she is now.

Mauresmo vs Henin Eastbourne final 07. Phenomenal tennis from both in tough conditions.

Re: Players playing at their peak and still losing the match

A lesser known one, but I really admired the way Wickmayer played in this match, her serve was fantastic and her hitting was relentless at points. Who knows where she could have been if she kept this level up, she really did have chances to win this match in straights.
