S.Smith 'Vika is a much better version of Pova, if she can win slams then so can Vika

'Vika is a much better version of Pova, if she can win slams then so can Vika'

She was talking about the Pova who won slams, not the current pova.

When she becomes world number 1 and wins all GS apart from RG it could be considered...

Samantha Smith : To me, Azarenka is a better version of Sharapova.

Well, the title says it all.

In my opinion, although Vika plays an aggresive game, she has more margin for error and can adapt to each surface better than Sharapova does. On the other hand, Sharapova is a much stronger and resistant player physically.

oh lord

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Better version of serveless sharapova maybe but she is not even half the player Sharapova was in her prime.

Nontheless, Azarenka is playing like a number one out there. I know it doesn't say too much considering the opponent, but still. That is what the number one player should be able to "look like" against most anyone. In control. Take notes Wozniacki.

I heart Maria but I have a feeling this might be a wait and see question, maria definitely hits way bigger of the ground though
