Maggie a better indoor player than Venus?
Their H2H tells me yes. What about other factors?

Have you guys ever seen Maggie play live?? I have, several times, I'm surprised that she wins on any surface. Indoors or not!! She has no shots, she hit's the ball so high over the net that it allows her apponents all kinds of time to return balls. She is almost never aggressive!! I've never seen her play Venus indoors though. What does she do indoors that's so different than any other place that she plays!!??

well, i think she wins bc of a "mix" of every kind of tennis.... flat shots, topspins, dropshots and defensive slices are in her game as well as offensive lobs and winners.... you never know what to expect, bc she can do everything with the ball when shes on. and thatr makes it so difficult for you to face maggie.

It's close. The largest title played indoors is the Masters, which neither Maggie nor Venus has won. Maggie's best result in the QF, Venus a SF.

Maggie has 6 indoor titles to her name, and a handful of other RUPs.

Venus has .... I think 5. It's five if Oklahoma City is played indoors.

Maggie has been playing for many more years, too. I'd call it about even right now. Maggie makes a better case if she takes Tokyo.

And yet, she does. The NERVE

I don't know if she's better overall than V indoors, but she certainly has figured out how to get to her.

Sure enough, Maggie has six indoor titles. She also has 5 indoor RUs...I'd say 5 is a handful. Hope this helps.
