What is with all these threads?? Are you trying to belittle Maria's achievements by comparing her to Venus cos that's just sad.

Re: Whose career is better? Venus Williams or Maria Sharapova?

well Maria has achieved more than Venus had achieved before her 21st birthday (3 Grand Slams to Venus' 2, 6 tier 1's to Venus' 5 and 19 titles to Venus' 17...also Maria's best year-end rank is No.2, whilst Venus' was No.3 before her 21st

the only thing Venus beats Maria on by achieving before her 21st is Olympic glory!

sorry Vee...but it had to be done! still love you

Re: Whose career is better? Venus Williams or Maria Sharapova?

Depends on your basis for comparison.

If we are looking strictly at titles and weeks at #1 then I think Maria will come out on top.

However, Venus spent a lot of time at #2 and #3 during the time of a dominant world #1 so maybe we need to include runner-ups and weeks at #2 and #3. Then maybe Venus would look better.

Re: Whose career is better? Venus Williams or Maria Sharapova?



As GL said, ask again in a few years. The difference in this situation is that...in a few years, Maria has a chance... With 3 slams under her belt at 20, she's on the right track. Good health is what's most important now.

Maria Sharapova

Re: Whose career is better? Venus Williams or Maria Sharapova?

Maria's won the YEC and Venus hasn't, I think Maria is destined for a better career than Venus.

Why are people so bitchy?

If you had replaced the YEC with the Australian Open in your post, the post would have been more valid.
