I don't find that h2h embarrassing at all. Serena is a 13 major winner that's really impressive beside like someone pointed out Serena lead 3-1 at majors (should've been 2-2 but it's ok now )
I could easily say that Serena should be ashamed to have such a tight h2h against Stosur and Jankovic (1 major for the two) while Maria lead 17-2 or sth.

Now what fun is there in beating the weaklings?! You gotta be the big ladies...the ones that define your legacy. Serena beating Jankovic and Stosur..nice. Serena owning the likes of Sharapova and Davenport?! Now THAT's something to talk about.

Always bet on black!

There is even less fun losing to them at majors beside titles define your legacy not one negative H2H, even less against the best active player.

Re: Maria vs Serena or Vika vs Serena | Which Head-to-head?

On paper both look pretty embarrassing. 2 of their 3 wins came when Serena could barely move as well

When you think about it though, it's not THAT bad. Serena is just by far the more talented player

Having said that, now is the perfect opportunity for both to try and get some wins. If they can't beat a 30+ Serena when they're in their prime age it doesn't look good.

You sure you wanna talk about losing to scrubs at majors?! Oudin, Radwanska, Kirilenko..I think Stosur and Janko are much better players than the aforementioned trio.

Really, just leave it alone. as you say Serena is the better player, so no need to sweat it.

Always bet on black!

You're right about that and i think Vika will get a win or 2 from here against her. Maria seems to have given up on this H2H.

They so mad. 17pova's maiden slam at Wimbledon on their mind, every day.

Re: Maria vs Serena or Vika vs Serena | Which Head-to-head?

Maria has beat Serena in two big finals, while Serena has beat her only one important AO F, Victoria beat Serena only in Miami final, so i find Maria´s win more impressive and not so embarrassing

Maria Sharapova
