Re: Players who bring out the best and worst in your favorites.
Brings out the Worst:
Davenport- a poor 0-7 record says it all. Very similar players in both style of play, weapons, and weaknesses Davenport was just better in all categories. Real bad matchup for Nadia.
Sharapova- again the record tells the story (1-9) although half of their matches were three sets or close the sad part is that in a lot of those Nadia positioned herself to win. She's just mentally inept against Pova. Mentally Sharapova brings out Nadia's worse.
Brings out the Best:
Serena- she may have a losing record against her but she also has multiple wins including a slam win over Rena. Rena is simply just a better player, but when they play Petrova always takes it to her and makes it really competitive and it's usually Petrova at her best.
Jie Zheng- the only time Zheng won in their nine encounters was when Nadia retired. A very favorable matchup for Nadia.
Li Na- Peteova totally own her plain and simple and only one or two matches have even been close, the rest is Nadia totally dominating.
Makes her fight hardest:
Elena Likhovtseva: always a battle and a coin toss as to who would win
Dementieva: Petrova dominated the rivalry in the beginning then Dementieva dominated it toward the end....all in all it petty much evened out.
Mauresmo: a fun rivalry usually real close
