Kvitova vs Vaidisova: Who is greater?

Now that Petra has reached a second Grand Slam semifinal she is very close to fellow Czech Nicole in terms of career achievements.

Obviously Nicole's results are static as she is no longer playing and Petra will probably get even better, but based on what they have done so far who has the better career?




Career High: 8
Slams: Aus QF, Wim SF x2
Titles: 4 (2x internationl, 2x Premier)



Career High: 7
Slams: Aus SF, French SF, Wim QF x2
Titles: 6 (6x International)

Re: Kvitova vs Vaidisova: Who is greater?

The word "great" probably should be reserved for multiple slam winners, IMO.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Re: Kvitova vs Vaidisova: Who is greater?

Based on what they have done I think Petra and she will easily pass Nicole by a larger margin soon.
However I think Nicole had more potential and considering her peak era, her age and game, etc (and taking note of how she ruined her career) I think she's greater.

Both of their tastes in men (or boys ) are cause for concern.

Kvitova will surely surpass her soon, who knows that time might even come in just a few days.

Re: Kvitova vs Vaidisova: Who is greater?

All I can say is I miss Vaidisova, not the 2009 one, but the 2006-2008 beginning one.

Re: Kvitova vs Vaidisova: Who is greater?

No comparison here. Vaidisova was by far one of the worst players ever to reach Top 1O or GS semifinal. It's like ask if Navratilova was greater than Novotna.

Perhaps.

I could have used the word "better" in hindsight

Re: Kvitova vs Vaidisova: Who is greater?

If Kvitova looked like Kournikova, 100% vote would go to her...

bases on results I think Kvitova already or else somewhere this year.
