Re: Kournikova vs. Kirilenko

Anna was by far more talented, it's not really even close. Maria has two smaller titles, Anna doesn't have any, but she was top 10 with better Grand Slam results.

yea, but i would want 2 small titles than nothing.;
ALSO maria is too young to put her against Anna who had more years on tour.

Anna has reached a Wimby semi at 17, and a top 10 ranking at 18 (I could be wrong about that, but around 18 I know). Going on at what age they achieved things is in Anna's favor.

Re: Kournikova vs. Kirilenko

I hate it when people say AnnaK couldn't play tennis She reached a Wimbledon semifinal, was a World #8 in singles and was a #1 doubles player for quite a long stint. Sure - she didn't win a singles title, but she still achieved alot in her few years on the tour, sadly cut short by injury

When/If MariaK breaks the worlds Top 10 and reaches a GS slam, then I may consider her - but not yet.

Re: Kournikova vs. Kirilenko

Kournikova played her last pro match at 21, and Maria is 21.
Kournikova made a Miami final and Wimbledon semi, was top 10. She did much more.

In talent, they aren't far apart. Kirilenko hasn't put all the pieces together yet.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Kournikova never played small tournaments in her career

That's your way of saying that you realize you're wrong and can no longer defend your original statement so you're trying to end it and not appear foolish. I love these games the Williams fans play
