Re: WWW: Peak Davenport vs Peak Kvitova

Kvitova has more raw groundstroke power I guess, but Davenport's serve is better and that's more important.

However, I watch this vid and while I still voted for Lindsay I think it would be extremely close.


I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Venus

Re: WWW: Peak Davenport vs Peak Kvitova

Am i the only one who finds this kind of thread absurd?

Example, peak Federer is better than peak Nadal, but would win peak Federer against peak Nadal? i don't think so.

And frankly, people overestimate peak Pierce. Yes, Mary was impressive when she was on, but that doesn't mean she was unbeatable, specially because there were ways to make her play worse. She was fantastic in RG 94, but in the final ASV was able to make her look a lot worse. Sometimes a player play bad because her opponent make her play bad

Re: WWW: Peak Davenport vs Peak Kvitova

Lindsay. Even on fucking clay.

While Petra has the ability to be electric, Lindsay embodies consistency and has superior stroke production on every shot. She might be a step slower than Petra but Lindsay was great at running girls ragged across the court, especially if she was in the zone.

Nadal only has a winning record vs Federer on clay and yes peak Nadal >>>>>>> peak Federer on clay.

Pierce would have crushed ASV in that French Open final just like she had Graf in the semis without the rain delay. The start of the match indicated no difference from how Roland Garros had gone to that point. Sanchez has to be one of the luckiest players ever in so many respects.

Peak Kvitova might beat peak Henin on grass but any other surface Justine would win easily. You obviously know that too, hence why you had to choose grass specifically. Imagine peak Justine vs whatever you consider peak Kvitova on clay (take the best clay tennis she has ever played to now, whenever you believe that is). Justine probably wins 6-1, 6-0.

BUMP.

Kvitova proponents in this discussion, please step up? Or crawl away, because after her 16 16 loss to Cibulkova of all people, I wouldn't remotely place her in the same conversation as Davenport.

You are totally right, PEAK Kvitova totally played against Cibulkova
I was at that match
Peak Kvitova is better than Peak Davenport because she does everything better

I stand by my earlier comment in this thread.
One swallow doesn't make a summer (one beatdown by a talented opponent doesn't change a thing).

By the way there's no point to be made by your lame condescending bump other than expose your concern that you are constantly thinking about Davenport whenever Kvitova plays a match - fearing and dreading in anticipation the result. Probably you already have had nightmares about Kvitty winning her 4th slam

LOL. Kvitova could probably win a set on red clay, though.

You are right that I haven't seen tennis before 2005 because I was basically an infant
But I have seen Davenport through Highlights and full matches and she played in 2005 and I am not joking when I say that Kvitova does everything better
She probably has less Doubles sense but she moves as well, hits as hard (maybe not on forehand but if she's at her PEAK she hits her Forehand to Davenports backhand) and just moves her around the court better
On Clay she would win in 2, on American Hard she would win providing she doesn't have an Asthma attack and she would probably win on the Slower Australian Hard Courts
On Grass there would be many tiebreaks because even though Davenport has an arguably better Serve Petra is lefty
I am not even a huge Petra fan I have never posted in her thread or anything but Petra at her best would beat Lindsay at her best I don't think Petra has ever played her best but even the best I have seen her play is better than anything I have ever seen from Davenport I would expect that the vast majority of people would agree with me At least if you are objective, which you aren't

Re: WWW: Peak Davenport vs Peak Kvitova

At first, I thought this poll was a joke.

Peak Davenport! She still should have finished her career with over 5 Grand Slams.

Venus Williams | 7 Grand Slam Titles | 48 Singles Titles | World Rank: #7 |
Serena Williams
| 21 Grand Slam Titles | 69 Singles Titles | World Rank: #1 |
