Karolina Sprem?

just wondering how hard she hits the ball compared with players like the williams sisters etc?

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

I've never seen her, Gowza. But from what I hear, she has a fair amount of power.

Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!

Well, he asked an obvious question. How does she hit in comparison to the sisters. The obvious answer is not as hard.

Not necessarily.....Mirjana is relatively unknown, outside her hardcore fans, but she's more powerful than either of the sisters, so the answer really isn't so obvious. Not that I think Sprem is more powerful than the sisters but still.....


Anyway Gowza....ask Ath (AkA Seles) he saw the same clips of Sprem that I saw from last year's Vienna.

Yeah, maybe not this year, but she'll be close to top-10 anayway at the end of the year. She hits hard on both sides, I really like her BH crosscourt.
Let say she has the power like Myskina...

C'mon Belgians

No, Mirjana is not relatively unknown. Unless perhaps you started liking tennis last week. If you were around in '97/98 when nobody could shut up about her, you'd understand.

So anyway, if she had the power of the sisters, I'm sure it would be the same deal. But she doesn't. Not that she's not good though.

Many people saythat Karolina is better than Iva Majoli(RG champion and#4).

I saw her practice last year at Wimbledon and she does hit the ball hard as for comparisons I would say someone like.......ummmm.........well yeah myskina would be a good comparison. She certainly hit the hardest out of the group that she was drilling with (sorry did not recognise any of them). but (and this is a big but!) klina puts a good deal of work on the ball, I am not talking conchita amounts of spin but her shots are not flat at all at least not when I saw her. I think the combination of power and 'heavy' shots points to good things from her. She also came across as being a bit of a minx if you know what I mean!!
