Is this like the 5th time we have had this thread?

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

^She will always have haters. People on this board love to hate her

Oh yes, have to be realistic here. Probably Sharapova on everything but clay. But I don't know, at their respective peaks the biggest weapon on court would be Ana's forehand. Sure it's inconsistent at times and can crumble under pressure, but at Ana's peak it's relentless, and she could use it to boss around almost anyone. Their serves would both be very good, hard to call. And therefore both players' return games would be neutralized. Peak Pova would have the edge on backhand and mentality (pretty significant), Ana would have the edge on forehand, movement, finesse. I think overall they'd have some close, competitive matches. Some might say that Pova would blow Ana away but I don't think it would be the case. People forget that rising Ana (pre-breakthrough and pre-brainfart) pushed Sharapova very hard at the end of 2006, a time that many would say Sharapova was at her peak. It was a brutal hard-hitting match in Linz and both of them refused to buckle or get pushed around. Either way I think at their peaks they would both serve really well so it would be close more often than not Definite edge to Sharapova though anywhere but clay.

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

We need a subforum for peak vs peak discussions during the off-season.

This off-season is so funny
it was on clay and Masha was "Cow on Ice" , but peak Masha on Clay emerged only in 2011-2012

all the rest matches Ivanovic lost to Masha even in her peak years and lost her career-defining match in Melbourne in straights

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

Ivanovic could've beaten Sharapova alot more if it wasnt for her chokes and her brain. Her game was spectacular except that horrendous bh, but the rest of her game was flowing very well at her peak. Ivanovic i think has an edge over Masha on clay. Masha however has an edge on indoor courts, grass and fast hardcourts.

mental strength is also part of the game.... Ivanovic on clay in Rome again has shown that playing on her best surface she is still too mentally weak to beat Sharapova

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

Oh, again.

I really don't understand why people post those highlights from 2007 (3 one-sided matches, right?), when they were not both playing well in those matches. Actually, they usually don't play good matches, their match from 2006 is probably the best one they played, they were not at their peaks, but it's closest to what their games looked like when they play well:



As for those who think that their Peak vs. Peak match would be somewhat one-sided... I don't know... They are deluded, retarded or both, because Maria and Ana actually used to have a serve.
