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

... is more embarrassing?

I love Maria, so I'm biased. At least she beat Serena two times.

Maria vs. Serena. Azarenka has always played Serena tough and has pushed Serena to the brink.

They are peculiar but neither of them are embarrassing. There is no shame in losing to a much better player.

I accidentally voted for Maria. I was thinking her H2H is more impressive so I voted by accident.

No wonder Masha would win any poll she's involved in.

Agree with the last part, although it's a tad bad for maria to eat like 5 to 6 breadsticks in every beatdown

I am going to be biased, but i prefer the intensity in maria-serena matches (bar the beatdowns) like the 05 AO, 08 Charleston first two sets and 10 Wimbledon.

Even when maria was getting trashed in the A0 07 Final, u can still sense the intensity as serena was in zone that night

so vika-serena

Maria, only because of the hype generated by those 2 wins.


I don't think many would have expected this after the Wimbly Final.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

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

Pova's two wins were bullshit. She was young and too naive to be nervous, so she swung for the fences and hit every line in that Wmbledon final. Serena was surprised and choked. The YEC win has a huge asterisk because of Serena's injury.

Since then, Serena has been teaching Pova to know her true place among the peasantry. The 6 breadsticks have drummed their way into Pova's head.

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3

Definitely Vika's! If Serena wasn't hobbled in the Miami final it would be 0-8. Maria will always have Wimbledon even if the YEC win is asterisked.

Vika vs Serena. She's played 5% and 3% Serena on multiple occasions and still only managed one win.
