Who is the better claycourter? Jankovic or Sharapova?

This isn't meant to be a serious question but people are acting as if Sharapova somehow miraculously gets to the final she will steam roll Jankovic on clay. at the amount of respect JJ gets in GM. Chakvetadze is another player people act like is not even top 20. Granted she's not playing well this year, but still...

How do you judge it? By how far they get at RG? By who they beat on clay?
They both grew up in Bradenton. They must have played a lot as kids.

I was going to say "is this thread a joke" until I saw that it's not meant to be serious.

Why are people so bitchy?

JJ but I think Maria would still be able to beat her on clay.

Jankovic is the better clay-courter, hands down.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Jelena has won Tier I tournaments in succession on both red and green clay.

Jelena by far is the better clay courter, she has much more experience on the surface. Maria is learning.
