In all the threads about Maria you have something negative to say and about Davenport vs Maria it's 5-1 H2H (your avatar) Keep celebrating that 6-0 6-0 win.

Obviously Sharapova is a better player than Dulko, but peak Ivanovic vs peak Sharapova it would not be a blowout as some people are saying, it would be competitive... but people here tend to diminish Ivanovic talent as a tennis player or missed her playing during her peak year

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.
Debateable. Peak Ana's forehand had more raw pace than any of Maria's shots, but Peak Maria's backhand is still more deadly AND more reliable than Peak Ana's FH imo.

Anywho, probably Peak Maria on all surfaces.

Not sure I agree with that, peak Maria's forehand has nothing to envy from anyone's, including power. She can hit it in the high 80's, low 90's (mph)

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

Oh, Ana's fh...

Even today it's the most consistent shot in her game and it used to be more consistent. Of course, her latest matches against Safarova, Vinci, Oprandi suggest otherwise, but in general, her game falls apart when her serve is off (bh too, obviously, but it basically doesn't exist anymore), fh is rarely the main suspect.

During her prime, her fh was huge and heavy, but she was never painting the lines with it, it wasn't a hit or miss shot. That's why she hardly ever struggled against counterpunchers, she didn't go for too much. Now she has a problem because her fh is weaker and she can't finish the point easily like she used to, it's much easier to redirect the ball to her bh than in the past.

more like Sharapova's backhand will finish that match in straights 7-5 6-2 or something like that ....
Ivanovic's forehand will just let her stay on par till 5-5 in first set and then choke time begins

All these threads are opened by Ivanovic , the only one who still considers herself taller () and better than Sharapova

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

On clay Ana would drub Sharapova. Grass, Sharapova would destroy Ana. On other surfaces, I think it could be somewhat competitive but Sharapova is just the better player.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
