Re: Who will win, Peak Sharapova vs. Peak Kvitova?

Tough to judge, both are fantastic players. It would be great, if Maria overcomes her injury problems and that both girls are able to deliver her best. I felt sorry for Maria during that Wimbledon final. If Petra hadn't missed a few easy putaways, it could have been 6:2, 6:2. Hope to see some great battles between them in 2012, hopefully in GrandSlam finals

Re: Who will win, Peak Sharapova vs. Peak Kvitova?

Maria at her 2006 U.S Open and 2008 Australian Open level would win. She would match Kvitova's winners and make far fewer errors in a head to head matchup. Kvitova is still improving though, while Maria at this point would be happy if she just reaches that level again, never mind improving on it.

Easy.

Peak Maria would destroy her 6-0 6-0

Re: Who will win, Peak Sharapova vs. Peak Kvitova?

Kvitova would win in three sets, but it would be close



Ivanovic - Gφrges - Agnieszka - Li - Bencic

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz

Even on indoor hardcourts, I think it's 50-50. Peak Sharapova was pretty scary during indoor hardcourt season in 2006.

At YEC she lost sets against Stosur and Azarenka, and was 1-5 down against Radwanska. Peak Sharapova actually destroyed her opponents without a let-up, and if she were to drop a set, it was against really good players (e.g. Serena, Mauresmo, Davenport), not scrubs.
This is a really good point.

I think they're match-up at Peaks would result in a three setter, but it's almost a toss-up.

Edit: however, at peak, Sharapova had a great serve as well as a great return; she'd be able to hold up and have a chance in Petra's games. Petra's return, on the other hand, is not as strong as Masha's, which might tip the difference.

I think that's the reason she served so many bagels during Australian Open 2008

That's why the question is called "Peak Sharapova vs. Peak Kvitova" instead of "Current Sharapova vs. Current Kvitova".
