Sharapova or Hingis on clay?

who would win this much anticipated match. although this is hingis' best chance on the red stuff to beat maria, if maria puts on a great performance i think she would have the edge, maria leads the series 2-1 after there first meeting and won them both in straight sets.

I think Hingis would win easily given that Sharapova hasnt played a clay court match all year and Hingis has and is better on the clay naturally...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

I would say Hingis at this point in time, Masha is probably not quite as good as Hingis on clay and with no match practice on the surface it would be a tough ask for Masha to beat Hingis on clay this year. Although you can never discount the fight and determination Masha has.

If both are on form, and 100% fit, I'll still take Martina.

It's true, you never know with a player like Maria but let's face it. Martina wins this match 9 times out of 10.

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

If Martina and Maria are at their best, Martina should win. She is better on clay.

Hingis in straights. Maria hasn't really beaten ANY big names on clay, and Hingis would get back almost every single ball.

Maria hasn't played in over 7 weeks. If her ankle has healed enough to play at Roland Garros, she'll certainly be at a disadvantage.

If not for that, I'd say she could beat Martina like she has done the past two times they played each other.
