Is Azarenka the new Sharapova?

Now that Maria is gone from the top 10, Vika entered it. Their games are kinda similar, powerful groundstrokes side to side, spiced up with grunting.



• Maria Sharapova • Dominika Cibulkova • Eugenie Bouchard • Garbine Muguruza •
• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •

Re: Is Azarenka the new Sharapova?

Most players powerful groundstrokes side to side these days. Vika is not any more similar to Sharapova then any other player, so just lay off with the comparisons.

Vika is her own player, and Maria is hardly retired so it's not quite the time to be looking for the new Maria.

Re: Is Azarenka the new Sharapova?

Seems like everyone is in a hurry to label her the next someone. Maybe she will do her own thing. I don't like all the comparisons either. When she beats a defending Wimby champ then maybe we can start talking about her being the next Pova...

Yes both in terms of boring game, ridiculous grunts and annoying personality!

no, Vika is Vika, Maria is Maria.

When Azarenka wins 3 grand slam titles, we would see if even to compare them
