The difference between Azarenka and Capriati?

It's obvious that Azarenka is the new Capriati both in terms of game style and personality on and off the court. Other than the grunt, what do you think sets these two players apart?

Athleticism. Capriati can belt the ball harder too.

Re: The difference between Azarenka and Capriati?

Why does anybody have to be 'the next someone'? I think the only thing that's similar is their on court behaviour and that they both rarely come to the net.
Other than that I think they're not that much alike.

Capriati was lightyears ahead in movement and defense, she could hit the ball harder and she was a better volleyer.

Jenny's FH was lethal, Vika kind of lacks such a shot in her arsenal.
Vika is currently more consistent though.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Capriati was a far better athlete and ball-striker. And her return was on par with Azarenka's. Next.

Re: The difference between Azarenka and Capriati?

Capriati a better mover? She surely was, but if we take into account only her golden years (2001/2002).

Azarenka is way more consistent, though.

That said, I don't see that much of a similarity between the two.

Azarenka is addicted to Snickers.

Azarenka is slimmer
