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

I still think peak Kvitova will beat peak Sharapova in two tight sets. Peak Sharapova has a great serve, but peak Kvitova has a great return shot and she can really easily change the direction of the ball. She is too powerful for any player.

Pironkova.Kostova.Petrova.Kerber.Schnyder. Stosur.Jankovic.Kuznetsova.
Pavlyuchenkova.Niculescu.Radwanska.Date-Krumm.Kvitova.Vinci.Muguruza.

Vesnina.Falconi.Paszek.Shvedova.Bacsinszky.Van Uytvanck.Voegele

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.
I see and you say Sharapova's game is flawless then.

Yeah, Maria was way more consistent with her groundstrokes at her peak than Petra and she could actually serve decently

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

The AO 2008 Pova beat four WTA #1 in one swoop, baggelling Henin and Dementieva in the proccess (also ended Henin's 32 match winning streak). Sorry, but either 2004 WimblyPova or OzPova would send Kvitova packing with a breadstick along the way. However that's not going to happen anymore This year's Wimbledon final was decided in tight sets and that was anything but a Peak Pova there, heck it wasn't even 50% Pova with her old serve gone forever.

Please. I don't even like Sharapova. But her game at her peak was far less likely to break down than Kvitova's. Kvitova still makes some god-awful errors at her peak, Sharapova has far fewer of those.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

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

The Mashabators are really leading the forum in their delusions these last fast few weeks. First the Henin thread and now this. Understandable, but still.

Sharapova never hit as big as Kvitova. Her force has always been her consistency and her precision. PeaKvitova is a bad matchup for her and she'd lose no doubt on super quick surfaces. Also lol @ her being a better returner. She'd be completely useless against Kvitova's first serve, and the side spin she has on her own serve isn't as effective because of Kvitova's height and wing span. Granted, she'd beat the hell of Kvitova on hard courts.

That Wimbledon final was a blow out. PeaKvitova only appeared in flashes when she was 0-1 down 1st set and at critical moments in the second. She was able to overwhelm her with a well contained game of her own, and that match was NID after the first 2 games. The gulf from the ground was astronomical (ok that's slighly exaggerating for a lack of a better word), and even I didn't think she was this better from the ground.

When Kvitova beats FOUR #1 to wins a Grand Slam, we shall talk whom she beats in two quick sets. The Maria haters are equally delusional as some of the fans, but at least I can admit it while you don't

Let's see who were those four number ones:

- Lindsay Davenport in 2008. Enough said.
- 2008 Justine Henin. A shadow of her own who got a well deserved beating for the trash tennis she was playing. Later she'd retire of how crappy she had become so quick.
- Jelena Jankovic? Enough said.
- Ana Invanovic aka VIP.

Honestly, I think one should be more ashamed about beating those #1s than mentioning them with pride.

Really, 2008 AO was impressive, but I'm just dead at how her stans thought that this was GOAT level, the coming of the second Christ or something. I understand you need to latch on something, but come on now.

your hate towards Maria is about as delusional as your fantasies about erratic Kvitty dominating the tour for the next few years. Peak Maria was never overwhelmed by any opponent no matter how hard they hit for a simple reason - more often than not her laser like groundies put them on the backfoot from the moment the ball was struck and then it was all a routine job for her to finish high floating crap with a drive volley. The only players which caused her trouble were great movers and counterpunches, of which Kvitty is neither. Not to mention she also had that little thing which helped her to win matches much easier - serve...

At her peak Maria was a much better mover than Kvitova, who is slow as fuck. Ozpova would've double bageled Kvitty.

yeah, those 4 number ones were quite the joke at that time, weren't they Still compared to Vikaria "Maiden GS SF due to a cakewalk " Azarenka, Tsvetana "Fluke" Pironkova, Martha "Journeywoman" Sharapova, Yanina "Fluke" Wickmayer, these "jokes" do fair pretty well
