Re: Peak Venus VS Peak Maria

It's very simple.
Naps on fast surfaces, Maria on slow courts.
If peak Napnus was struggling to wins over the Davenports on slow HC, I see no reason she's supposed to bully Davenport's better version in Pova.

Oh, and I think Venus would win peak to peak. Every shot of hers (at peak) beats Sharapova except the forehand (maybe). Even Venus' second serve was quite impressive at her peak, she had a MUCH cleaner motion before she was injured and changed it.
What I find amazing is... even with Serena's poor movement and footwork, she still gives Pova a massive beatdown

Can't be bad.

Peak Venus >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Peak Pova

The End!

"Almost anyone" in this instance not including the top two ranked players, right? Or are you arguing that either Azarenka or Sharapova moves better?

Re: Peak Venus VS Peak Maria

Venus. No doubt.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

It seems there is a wide variety of opinions to how Sharapova compares to Davenport as players. If I hadnt started too many peak threads already that would have been my next one.

IMO peak Davenport (98-2000) > peak Sharapova (2004-2006) but I understand that is one people could easily argue either way.

IDK she was probably too busy winning Wimbledon 5 times.

Venus 6-0 6-0 except maybe at RG where cow on ice goat on clay Sharapova wins in 3.

And Sharapova does win the long rallies against Azarenka?!
Difference is Serena CAN end the points quickly against Vika, unlike Masha..

Always bet on black!

Peak Venus wins on grass and quick hardcourts, Maria wins on slow hardcourts and clay. Maria would've been able to get hold of Venus's serve on slower surfaces and probably manage to scrape back most of Venus's first strikes in a rally, and then Maria's superior and less error-prone groundgame would do the rest of the work

It's too bad you didn't post in the peak Serena vs peak Maria thread...it'd been interesting to read your thoughts about THAT match-up.

Always bet on black!
