Who is a better defender: Wozniacki or Zvonareva

I would say Caro is faster, but Vera has better anticipation.

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

Gotta say that Zvonareva is playing some awesome defense in her match against Safarova. She's moving with Clijsters-like speed and retrieving balls other players could only dream of retrieving.

Zvonareva.

Wozniacki has good defence of course but it doesn't look very fluid like JJ, Zvonareva etc.

Yeah I agree with this but also that Vera has really great improvisation skills.

Vera Zvonareva is a joke as a world no.2. Kim movements is 101 times better than her.

She cant hold her serve right now against Lucie safarova, hope Vera lose in his match, cant wait to see her cry again. she cry when she lost, thats why i cant stand her.

Wozniacki's entire game is improvisation.

Re: Who is a better defender: Wozniacki or Zvonareva

Tough call. I think it is more fun to watch Vera, but I could be biased.

Re: Who is a better defender: Wozniacki or Zvonareva

Vera's defence looks better aesthetically but Wozniacki's is more consistent and effective.

Wozniacki. Bepa is better at turning defense into attack. Caro just... pushes it back.
