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

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).

Re: What is the "peak" of every player?

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.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
