The BEST SINGLE SET you've seen someone play

Are there any sets that stick in your mind as being the best that a player has ever played? Include clips if possible. I'll start...

Tatiana Golovin: Set 1 vs. Justine Henin, Stuttgart Final 2007, won 6-2

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frTKKqpzNdA

I've never seen Tatiana play with such confidence. Every ball looked on for a winner and she hit plenty. Definitely Golovin at her very best. Unfortunately, Henin came back to win the next two pretty comfortably. Sorry about the music by the way. In no way do I see how it fits in with the clip!

Jie Zheng: Set 2 vs. Serena Williams, Wimbledon Semi-Final 2008, lost (5)6-7

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw7SA589eGw (from 8:00)

It seems strange to choose a set that she lost (especially when she's won sets vs Serena before), but I think a lot of people expected Zheng to be killed in that semi-final, and the first set looked like this would come true. Zheng only hit 3 errors but still lost 2-6. However, even with Serena on top form and serving unbelievably well, Zheng grew in confidence, taking returns ridiculously early and even earning a set point at 6-5 40-30*. She got a second serve and for a moment it seemed meant to be, but the return painfully clipped the top of the net. That, along with the double fault on match point were a real shame, but it doesn't take away from the incredible high quality of the set!

The first set. Well, 60 30 and Stosur lost a little focus but that was a scary performance until then.

The first set of Venus-Kimiko in Wimbledon this year. Best tennis I've seen Kimiko played and high quality set.

Re: The BEST SINGLE SET you've seen someone play

if it is a best single set where both players played well, than pierce vs danillidou wim 2003 takes it. apart from a few doubles for danil it was amazing. every point was a winner.

mary's GOAT stats at the end of the match were something like 35 winners to 5 UE's.

From 2011, Kvitova was AMAZING against Wickmayer at Wimbledon.
