Most Dominant Performances By a Single Player in a Tourney

Seeing all the 'most dominating' or 'in the zone' threads recently, it reminded me of some dominant performances by players in a single tournament.

Mary Pierce lost 12 games in 5 matches enroute to her title at Hilton Head in 2000.

2 Pierce def Leon Garcia 6-1 6-1
3 Pierce def Pistolesi 6-1 6-2
qtr Pierce def Dokic 6-3 6-1
sf Pierce def Seles 6-1 6-1
f Pierce def Sanchez-Vicario 6-0 6-1

Pierce also lost 11 games before being routed by Hingis in the 1998 Aussie Open quarters

1 Pierce def Li 6-0 6-0
2 Pierce def Torrens Valero 6-1 6-2
3 Pierce def Barabanschikova 7-5 6-3
4 Pierce def Nagyova 6-0 6-0
qtr Hingis def Pierce 6-2 6-3

I was gonna say 2000 Hilton Head... but you already did.
Best week I've ever seen - and some stiff clay competition in there too!

Why brining all those stats when in the end Mary didn´t win?!

Serena´s 00 Wimbledon was EVEN MORE impressive, but in the end it doesn´t matter because she didn´t win the tournament.

I have to agree with Chris.

The most impressive performance has to be mary in Hilton Head 2000......there was no way anyone could have beaten her that week, simply breathtaking stuff.

If we are talking about players who didn't win the event, but were still dominate:

Serena
2000 Wimbledon (until Venus)
2000 US Open (until Lindsay)
2001 Australian (until Martina)

Venus
2002 French (until Serena)
2003 Australian (Until Serena)

I think that Mary was playing very good tennis at the Aussie open then. I was gonna do Serena's 2000 Wimby and 2001 Wimby where she lost only like 12 games or so in the first 4 rounds before choking against Jennifer.

2001 New Haven; Venus

R16 Sandrine Testud (FRA) W 7-6(5) 6-3
QF Justine Henin-Hardenne (BEL) W 6-3 5-7 6-2
SF Jennifer Capriati (USA) W 6-4 7-6(1)
F Lindsay Davenport (USA) W 7-6(6) 6-4

Tough scores, and a three setter. But when you think of the players she beat to win this tournament. Testud, at the time, would have been 10-15 range; Henin was #5-6; Jennifer was #2-3; Davenport was either 2-3

(Davenport was #1 seed; Capriati 2; Venus 3)

And then you add in the match that it rained, so Venus played her QF and SF in the same day. And the FOLLOWING day played the final. And she only lost ONE set!

I was just about to post that. Also Serena's performance at the Nasdaq tournament(Miami) last year. Defeating the top 3 seeds- without dropping a set( Serena was quite scrappy against Jennifer, but still a good performance)

64 W Lilia OSTERLOH (USA) 7-5 6-1
32 W Katarina SREBOTNIK (SLO) 6-1 6-0
16 W Marissa IRVIN (USA) 6-1 6-4
QF W Martina HINGIS (SUI) 6-4 6-0
SF W Venus WILLIAMS (USA) 6-2 6-2
FR W Jennifer CAPRIATI (USA) 7-5 7-6(4)

Going back a bit further, how's this for a series of impressive scores at a major tournament: Chris Evert at the 1976 US Open. After a first round bye she defeated Greer Stevens 6-1 6-0, Glynis Coles 6-0 6-0, 9th seeded Sue Barker 6-1 6-0, the No.13 seed Natasha Chmyreva 6-1 6-2 in the quarter-finals, Mima Jausovec 6-3 6-1 in the semi-finals, then Chris won the title trouncing Evonne Cawley, the No,2 seed, 6-3 6-0 in the final. 12 games lost in winning a Slam!!
