Re: The Best Match Each Top 10 Player Has Played in 2013

Serena's best match this year was the FO semi final. 46 minutes, 6-0 6-1, 40 winners, 8 aces and lost 17 points vs a top 5 player at the time

Rome vs Cibulkova was pretty epic too, also 40+ winners for a 6-0 6-1 win.

I agree about Kirilenko at AO and Aga in Miami, but not the Petra match at YEC. It was goof, but she has played better. she can do better than 27 winners.

Li Na has many matches that are better than the one against Pavlyuchenkova such as Stuttgart against BMS, Wimbledon against Vinci, USO against JJ

Though the score makes it appear more flawless against Rybarikova, I think Caro played better again in the next round of Tokyo against Safarova, that she won 2-6, 6-3, 6-2. Safarova was more challenging than Rybarikova and Caro had to raise her game even higher. Quite impressive.

Re: The Best Match Each Top 10 Player Has Played in 2013

I was going to say Li at Wimbledon also, and her gameplay against Arruabarrena

Also Enjoyed the Seoul final against Pavs

I would also add vs Stosur, Toronto R3 (6-3 6-3)

Petra wasn't peaking at every match but she was on for this one! Unfortunately for Sam!

List updated, even though I don't particularly agree with some of the suggestions (namely the ones regarding Radwanska).

I must be thinking of someone else then cuz their USO match was shit.

I remember Serena playing a very good set and a half against Halep too, was that in Cinci?

Serena has played so many matches this year, its hard to keep track

There are a lot of other good matches (best) of Azarenka
There are a lot of other good matches (best) of Azarenka
Azarenka vs McHale, Doha, 60 60
Azarenka vs Goerges, Rome
Azarenka vs Eleni D., AO
Azarenka vs Schiavone, French Open, 63 60 (though not the entire match)
Azarenka vs Vesnina, AO
Azarenka vs Radwanska, Doha, 63 63
...
I think Azarenks vs Williams, Cincinnati was very good to, in a different way...
