Question Who hits harder Sprem or Sharapova?

I think Sprem does, but not as consistently as Sharapova.

Sprem hits harder, but Maria hits flatter giving her less control.

thats just the serve, I think we're talking about groundies. I've seen Sharapova, but not Sprem, so I don't know. but the way people have been talking, probably Sprem.

I think Maria hits harder but Sprem is much more consistent (well from the match I saw against Venus yesterday)

Sprem. But because she takes the ball so early, that's what did it.
Venus was on her back foot more so in that match than she was in some against Serena.

Sprem hits with a bit more top spin, and she hits harder than Maria as well. Maria wouldn't be able to overpower Venus, as somebody said earlier.

Sharapove looks like a better player, but I'd say Sprem hits the ball harder

I think the key point is this: Sprem hits the ball EARLIER, but Sharapova hits it harder....I mean the girl can blast the ball for sure!!

Sharapova........but Sprem can hit hard to any where in the court. Maria needs time to set up and unleash the monster.
