Question Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

So These two met when Sharapova was playing lights out tennis at AO 2008. The best tennis she had played since fall 2006. It was her Peak. Ivanoic playing grea tennis herself that Austrailian season was the only player to make a competitive match against Sharapova losing 5-7, 3-6 in the final before she went on to play even better tennis that half of the year.




Who wins this Peak vs. Peak match:
Ivanoic at her Peak had a serve to match Sharapova's and a much much better forehand. Sharapova has the superior backhand by far but Ivanovic has much better movement. I think Ivanovic' frst strike tennis when her forehand was on was deadlier, she waits maybe 2 shots before going for a winner and runs around her backhand superbly. Sharapova can hit through the court better on both sides though.
Discuss.



VERSUS



WHO. WILL. WIN.

Jelena Jankovic
- She used to know how to play tennis...
Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...

As her fans watch in awe at her ability to fuck that up...

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

Sharapova pretty easily, and no Ivanovic does not have a much better forehand than Maria when both are at their peak. Pretty comparable actually. Her movement can hardly be called much better also..

Ana does nothing better than Maria. Peak Maria will slay PeakAna every single time.

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

Let me be the first to say that I voted with my head and some other things but I will have to say Ivanovic. Sharapova has the better career (obviously) and is clearly competing at the top of women's tennis consistently but I have to say that if Ivanovic could pull it together she could really spoil things among the top 5.

She reminds me of Capriati because her forehand is lethal when she is "on" and the reason I give her the edge over Sharapova is because Ivanovic has much better movement. I know Maria has gotten the best of Ana more times but I still think that the best Ivanovic can deliver would be better than Sharapova. So for the sake of the argument....and because its the off-season I say Ivanovic wins 6-4 1-6 7-5

I don't think that is true Ivanovic really took it to Maria in the SF of Roland Garros in 2007 and had she not met Justine in the final she may not only have 1 Grand Slam title. That being said I don't deny Sharapova has proven her self thus far to be superior I just think Ivanovic hasn't fully reached her peak. Remember I said for the sake of the argument lol

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

Ivanovic may have chances only on clay, but against improved ClayPova not that much chances

Re: Peak Ivanovic vs. Peak Sharapova

threads with peak slam winners are boring, there should be threads with peak nonslam winners like peak Jankovic, Kerber, Hantuchova, Petrova, Dokic, ...

Maria Sharapova
