Which Match Had The Harder Hitting

Venus - Sprem Berlin SF 04 or Venus - Sharapova Wimbledon SF 05

They were the 2 hardest hitting matches ever i think. At Berlin 04, Sprem was probably hitting harder in the 1st set than everyone ever and in the 3rd set Venus started to catch up. At the Wimbledon SF they were just knocking the fuzz off the balls, and both were Big Babe tennis at its best I can't decide which one was harder hitting

Grassonkova.

Re: Which match had the harder hitting

I vote for Venus - Sharapova Wimbledon SF 05 because the quality of that match was very high unlike that Berlin match.

In other words the power game was controlled in that 05 Wimby SF. Not to mention it was a very high stakes match so the pressure made the performance that much more remarkable.

Re: Which Match Had The Harder Hitting

Venus - Sprem had better shotmaking

Venus - Sharapova had overall better quality

In context of the question though i think it was Venus - Sprem because some of the winners from both esp Karolina were just and they kept coming

Re: Which Match Had The Harder Hitting

The Berlin match seemed to have the hardest hitting. Sprem was (as usual) belting the ball with a ferocity I have not seen much on the women´s tour. Venus lost the first set before she knew it and I was like . Who is this girl and why have I never seen her before on the big stage?

But the match at Wimby had indeed more quality but the question is which match had the hardest hitting and I have to go with the one in Berlin.

Re: Which Match Had The Harder Hitting

Well in context of your question I guess you can say the ball may have been struck harder in Berlin but many of those balls landed in the stands.

Me personally I like to see the ball land inside the lines on a consistent basis.

Two great winners followed by two ugly UFEs doesn't do it for me.

But the Venus - Maria Wimby SF was great tennis.

Ummm YEAH, thats what I WAS THINKING!

Hello, this is one of the stupidest threads, Clay is the slowest of all surfaces, and Grass is the fastest, obviously its a no brainer, whoever thinks tennis is either "harder hitting", "more powerfull" or "faster" on a clay court is on pills!, the ball bounces higher it slows down on impact and theres more time to react on Clay...sprem was hitting hard im sure, but knowhere near what she could do on grass....as with all players NATURALLY. duh!

So of course the Maria match on GRASS was MORE POWERFULL....my goodness....its like comparing nascar and bumper cars!

Did you even see the Berlin match obviously you havent because even the commentators were saying they were making it look like a hardcourt and Wimbledon courts in the second week play like hard courts

Re: Which Match Had The Harder Hitting

wimbledon semi-final 2005 was the best so far.It was good to watch Maria pushed from side to side like a rag doll,Venus was unstoppable.It was thrilling to see Maria dejected and crying after the match specially after she had been hyped into oblivion.I was happy to see Venus so happy because nobody gave her a chance.
wimbledon semi-final was the grand-daddy of all matches and rates amongst the best ever.

Re: Which Match Had The Harder Hitting

people are being totally dumb and i doubt that people who are going straight to the slam semi have even seen the berlin match, because it seemed to have much harder hitting.

the sharapova/venus might have been a better quality one, but nobody could have stopped karolina in the first set of the berlin match. she didn't even let one of the fastest players on tour get into the match on the slowest surface there is. it was amazing.

dementieva + sharapova + bartoli + chakvetadze

Exactly, in the 1st set of Berlin, Karolina was hitting some of the most amazing winners ever and the fact that it was clay makes it all the more impressive, and in the 3rd set they were both going toe to toe. Wimbledon SF was similar but Sharapova doesn't hit the ball as hard as Sprem

If you had seen the 1st set and how Sprem was playing, her balls where nowhere near the stands, this match was actually brilliant quality for the pace at which they were hitting it on a clay court

Re: Which Match Had The Harder Hitting

I only saw the match of venus and maria...
but anyway, who cares?

and it's not all about the power, Sprem could hit her brain out of her head, she's still #110 in the world, anything she must have done wrong
