The only thing Kvitova gets the edge for is forehand, and that's Peak Kvitova.

Otherwise Lindsay had better volleys and variety. Davenport had the softest hands of any top power player ever.

Davenport's footwork was better than Kvitova's, even at her worst post-1997. Kvitova's footwork is that poor.

Re: WWW: Peak Davenport vs Peak Kvitova

This thread shows how overrated Kvitova was before this year. Granted I can somewhat understand as she was by far the real #1 of 2011, but the real #1 of such a weak year where a clown like Wozniacki even in a slump managed to be ranked #1 doesnt say that much.

Volleys Kvitova, please. Lindsay was one of the top doubles players and had quite good volleys, although underutilized. Kvitova is not a good volleyer.

The only area Kvitova might get is forehand, although as others have said only on her really good days. Movement maybe to Kvitova too but not because she is any good, just because both are mediocre at best in that department.

Next.
What opponents does peak Kvitova make irrelevant? Radwanska, Wozniacki, and Kerber perhaps. Even in form she loses to Serena and Sharapova everytime it seems, unless one plays a noticeably bad match (eg- Sharapova in last years Wimbledon final), and she would probably lose flat out to the improved version of Azarenka too even on a good day.

the one and only

I actually think Arantxa was an extremely underrated player on grass. She played amazing in that '95 final vs. Graf and was just points away from winning.

Maybe Peak Pierce. I am sorry but there is no way that anyone could deal with Petra when she is playing her best, depending on the surface. henin vs Kvitova on Grass when Kvitova is at her best: BYE BYE JUSTINE!!!
