She was beaten by Serena in Wimbledon semis if she were to make the final she would have beaten Radwanska. She was also stopped by Serena in the Semis of the Olympics and she would have beaten Sharapova in the final.
I concur!!! Vika would have wooped pova's ass if both were to be in a WB final. Vika is the real deal among other players not a Williams. There is a solid promising future waiting on this girl.
Another thing I'm begining to like about Vika is tha fact that, just like Williamses, she is learning to deal with entire crowd in a match rooting against her. She is gradually developing the skills that made the Williamses "steal" in the face of adversity. Vika is learning real fast and it can only make her stronger IMHO.
If they'd played at Wimbledon with the form they both displayed there this year, then Vika probably would've won (although Maria obviously played so bad there that she wouldn't've been competing for the title with or without Serena in the draw anyway).
At the Olympics, where Maria was playing reasonably well, Maria would probably have won. Vika doesn't move anywhere near as well on either clay or grass as she does on hardcourts, and we saw what happens in Stuttgart when Vika isn't able to defend well against Maria.
