peak CAPRiATI vs PEAK SERENA www??

This is a battle of divas, two drama queens who live and die by the sword, yell at umpires, challenge line calls and berate the linesmen, explode at one another ( many times) bad blood and poor sportsmanship abound with these two taking points from one another not willing to give an inch. Peak CAPRIATI , tenacious bulldog, powerfull, fast, hunts down every laser like crack by Williams sending the ball back with pace and interest, hitting her down the line forehands and running forehands at will, high percentage of first serves in ( serving in at around 110-115 mph) against a Serena equally determined cracking aces and punishing her grounded against her arch nemeises

This would be a true battle of wills and hunger as bother would make the other play killer tennis... All down to the wire. This would be epic. So much screaming, so many come on's!! So many bitchfest's . Www? And how?


... I know people would assume Serena but this is CAPRIATI, her biggest pain in the ass... Imagine her playing peak CAPRIATI. It would be a tough one.

It would be a 3 set battle, probably lasting 4 hours but Serena would prevail.

That'd be a hell of a MATCH! Peak Serena will prevail at the end in 3 tight sets

Capriati's defense/counterpunching matches Serena's attack, and Jen could also match Serena in both return of serve and raw foot-speed as well. But Serena's got the much better serve, so she'd prevail, probably in 3 sets.

Re: peak CAPRiATI vs PEAK SERENA www??

all of Capriati's victories came when Serena was ranked between 5-11 which suggests PEAK Serena would beat her relatively comfortably

Right, but Capriati played her close in all but like 1 of her losses. That counts for something.

She had many chances against Serena in all of her 8 straight losses to her most of them went to 3 sets and a lot of them CAPRIATI was winning or up in sets and gave the lead up. So certainly it was no walk in the park for Williams even tho she did go on an 8 match win streak against CAPRIATI in 02, unlike vika azarenka and sharapova who are consistently being bageled and breadsticked by Williams ( embarrassing if u ask me...) they should ask Jennifer how it's done and how to lose with respect and admiration....

Re: peak CAPRiATI vs PEAK SERENA www??

I mean a loss is a loss but I'd rather lose 6-4 in the third with chances to win than 6-1 6-3 5 or 6 times in a row with no chances to win and looking like a clown while doing so...

Azarenka and Sharapova can't play like Capriati.

Your too right.... They don't have the passion that Jen did . She would kill herself or pump herself full of heroine and sleeping pills before losing to Serena 6-3 6-1... That's why I respected her and so many did too she may not win the battle but she ain't gonna give it to u and she will fight dirty . Like her or not she played with passion and guts, Viktoria and Maria would be only too wise to learn how to play with " guts" means more than just screaming ur face off and looking like a mad chicken.

No I mean physically, they can't play like her. Maria does have the guts and passion. The closet thing to Jen in today's game is probably Kerber.

Re: peak CAPRiATI vs PEAK SERENA www??

Capriati fan here, but I'll have to give the edge to Serena, down to the serve and a bigger firepower that Serena has. What Capriati is great at doing is to counterpunch well and eventually force Serena to move, and frustrate Serena quite a bit by not letting Serena bully her off the court, and that she'll have to actually get her feet going 100% on to beat a peak Capriati. Capriati's biggest ability against Serena is to pull her level down, and if somehow peak Serena does not allow that to happen, there can only be one winner.

If you wanna beat Serena, you'll have to drag her level down, because when it comes to firepower there's really no one on the women's side who can overwhelm her. You must frustrate her, get her movement to become flustered so that her shots cannot be set up properly which would extinguish her power and draw errors, then through this eventually mess her mind up enough so that she herself starts doubting her shots. You basically want to make sure Peak Serena does not show up. But few players nowadays have this ability, and you can see it's the players who have the ability to survive an initial onslaught and makes Serena play a lot of balls who can give Serena trouble (like Caro, Kerber), but they still can easily be destroyed when Serena is on.

To be honest the closest thing to a peak Serena losing is the 2008 Wimbledon final against Venus, where Venus was actually holding her own in the power stakes. And I think this is what Serena meant when she says Venus is her greatest rival, because Venus is probably the only one who can hold her own in terms of power when Peak Serena shows up.

He looked deep into his eyes and said, "You're perfect."

"No, I'm not. But with you, I don't even care."

Re: peak CAPRiATI vs PEAK SERENA www??

^^ Beat me to it. Yes, Capriati rattled Serena, brought her game down from whatever high level it was resting at before the match. So Peak Serena would be dragged into a dogfight, but would prevail in the third over the difference in their serves.

....

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.
