Re: Peak CAPRIATI vs Peak Jankovic

If they played in the same era, their H2H would be something like 4-4, just like Jelena and Venus

[QUOTE=Sammo;22305115]Quite honestly, I think Jankovic has more raw talent, not sure about who's better at their peaks though.

Re: Peak CAPRIATI vs Peak Jankovic

Jennifer on all surfaces. Peak Capriati can defend Jankovic's one good shot and match it with being able to hit winners off both wings and a better first serve.

Not to mention Jennifer had an underrated slice BH and is the better volleyer.

Capriati was just athleticism

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Jankovic doesn't do a single thing better than Capriati.

Re: Peak CAPRIATI vs Peak Jankovic

Capriati is faster, stronger, more consistent. Stronger mentally. Capriati in 2.

Re: Peak CAPRIATI vs Peak Jankovic

Why not to open a thread peak Wozniacki vs peak Henin? or peak Safina vs peak Graf?

Re: Peak CAPRIATI vs Peak Jankovic

Peak Capriati would prevail, but Empress would win in the style stakes

When one was peak? The one who was №1 when Henin, Sharapova, Clijsters were not in the tour?

Did she won anything beating the likes of Serena, Hingis, Clijsters in a row? (Seles, Davenport,Hingis)

Re: Peak CAPRIATI vs Peak Jankovic

Jelena wins on grass, as her hooves are quite accustomed to the surface. She wins on green. Jennifer on the white stuff obviously.
