Dominant? which also includes being consistent? Serena by far. Serena won't even choke a 5-0 lead in a match.

Re: Serena Williams Vs Petra Kvitova. Who has more dominant game ?

I'm really happy for Petra but I don't think we should crown her as the new Serena already

next year I expect her to win a slam or two though

I think Serena at her peak was far more dominant. She has the serve. If you can dominate on serve, that's a huge advantage. Serena is also faster and more explosive.

I'm happy for Kvitova and I actually like her game but lets not get ridiculous.

KvittyGOAT is this generation's Serena I like watching her demolish generation suck with ease but sadly it's very hard to compare them because Petra's 'competition' is...weak to say the least.

Re: Serena Williams Vs Petra Kvitova. Who has more dominant game ?

Kvitova is starting to remenber me Serena in way she was really not in 100 percentage form in all games in YEC and not play all well but still beat everybody 10-2 in sets. But don't overhype Petra too early ... Serena will be long time queen, Kvitty is only small princess to her ...

Re: Serena Williams Vs Petra Kvitova. Who has more dominant game ?

I love Petra but Serena was dominant over a far superior generation, she dethroned Capriati, peak Venus, and to a lesser extent Hingis and Davenport - then she had to deal with up-coming Kim and Justine.

We have not seen Petra's best yet but so far peak Serena was more tactically aware and had more consistency. Petra has a brilliant serve but her game is still quite inconsistent, this is something which will hopefully improve over time though. Petra has improved by leaps and bounds but I still think she is searching for the perfect balance of controlled aggression.

Give Petra a chance to show her true peak form.

Petra matches Serena in the power aspect but her inconsistency means Serena is still better than her.
