yeah sure, it's exactly the same.

Truer words have never been spoken. And it will only get worse as the time goes by and people lose perspective, in a few years we'll read how those two would have been the equivalent of Martina and Chris.

Kvitova is far better player in terms of game and in terms of achievements. You must be nuts even to bother trying to compare Nicole's MM titles to Kvitova's Madrid and Paris.
Nicole showed potential at 17 yo. Where is Kvitova at 17? and Nicole's MM titles are from an era when Williamses, Sharapova and Belgians at the top, while Kvitova's from an era when MJMS and Rezai are Clay Tier I winners. It just happen to be pathetic that she end her career younger then when Kvitova raises to top.

Kvitova, but it's hardly a big achievement.

Vaidisova never even made a tier 2 final. You can talk about the different era but Linz 2007 was there for the taking and she lost to Hantuchova, and she was the top seed at a clay tier 1 event and lost to Krajicek in the first round that same year, so your argument doesn't really wash.

Kvitty will endure the same fate as Nikki, and it's all Corswandt's fault.

What a mean thing to say.

But nah.

Nicoletta never really seemed to enjoy either the brutishness of the pro tennis player lifestyle or the pressure of big matches (at least once she realised that she wasn't a born competitor), so it wasn't entirely surprising that things went the way they did.

Kvitova is a cypher so far because she doesn't speak enough English to hold any sort of actual conversation.

Re: Kvitova vs Vaidisova: Who is greater?

This is a bit unfair to Nik since she never finished her career. I do feel Petra has more raw talent and that leftyness is a big bonus. Who knows that Nik would have achieved if she'd stay in the game.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Nicole will come back and teach Kvitova who's the boss.

I don't think the Williams and the Belgians give a damn on MM events.

That's the point. Nicole couldn't win anything else as the Big Four was killing it in the Slams.

Yah, like she was ever going to win one.

Nicole is 1-11 against the Williams and the Belgians - which is not that bad considering she had 3 years at comparatively top level.But big titles are always big titles - she never really had a semi (outside the two Slams semis).Kvitova already has 2 slam semis.
