Re: Maria's best match in 2012?

I should watch the Stosur match in Stuttgart, too bad I missed it because I've heard some tennis journalist and ES commentator saying, in his opinion, it was the best match of the year (overall) even better than USO final.
About the matches I saw: AO SF and Stuttgart F.

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.

Re: Maria's best match in 2012?

Quality wise? Probably Stosur in Stuttgart. I also like VIP in Rome because she was being owned till Ana had SPs, and then they produced some AMAZING tennis and Maria just clinched the first set. Second set wasn't as good, but meh.

Re: Maria's best match in 2012?

I think the RG semifinal is very underrated! Qualitywise it was nothing special, but the way Maria handled it... The wind, the crowd... She handled it very well! Just like old times...

Re: Maria's best match in 2012?

The Stuttgart final is always the best match she has played since coming back from the shoulder surgery for me The winner-error ratio was too good. Her serve was awesome in this match and the whole tournament She was so focused and dominant from the beginning to the end. She was so flawless in that day for me, I mean I never doubted she was going to lose while watching it. I always watched this match after she had lost a match to feel better, and to be honest, it really worked

Probably the Stuttgart final.

I also thought she played great in Rome against Venus

You mean until Ana crumbled? 2nd set was awful... It wasn't a good match.

Re: Maria's best match in 2012?

Stuttgart final. Totally dominated the game from start to finish, which must have been tough to do after so many crappy losses to Azarenka. Plus it was on my birthday.

Stosur in the QF was definitely the best match Maria was involved in (in fact, for me it was the best overall) though I don't think her standard was quite as high as in the final.
