Peak Navratilova vs Peak Serena Williams?

Hah, I've always wanted to start one of these. So, thoughts?

Martina: fast, fit, best volleyer in the game, lefty serve, tactician, net rusher,
Serena: fast, power ground strokes, extreme angles, huge first, strong second serve, great return game.

Re: Peak Navratilova vs Peak Serena Williams?

Navratilova may trouble Serena with her superb volleys but that's about it. Her slick lefty serve could be tricky too but Serena would be much too phyiscal and explosive for even an extremely fit Martina Nav.

Early on Navra could have the edge but slightly on grass. Serena would tear her apart on hardcourts, rebound ace and clay. Martina again would fair well or have the slight edge indoors.

Serena would lead this hypothetic h2h to the effect of 6-3 or 6-4.

"Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there" Unknown ???

Hoping to see great tennis from Lindsay Davenport, Monica Seles, Mary Pierce, Amelie Mauresmo, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic. Venus's backhand rocks!!!!!!!!!

Hingis will always sparkle in my eyes because

Re: Peak Navratilova vs Peak Serena Williams?

If a 50-year-old Martina Navratilova can hit a serve 105 MPH with a modern racquet, one can only imagine how a 25-year-old Navratilova would do. Martina at her best was slightly less athletic than Serena is, but much more skilled. They would break even on clay and hard courts, but Martina would own Serena on grass and indoors.

They played doubles together once: Tokyo Indoors, September 2002 (lost in quarters to Kuznetsova/Sanchez-Vicario 5-7, 4-6). I know that has nothing to do with this thread, but I just like to show off my knowledge of superfluous information.
