Peak Venus VS Peak Maria

Thought I'd join the 'Peak' hype.

I actually think Maria wins this one....


Sharapova | Watson | Muguruza | Konta | Broady | Bencic | Robson | Cirstea | Lisicki

Re: Peak Venus VS Peak Maria

I love Maria & Venus.

It's obviously Venus. At her best her serve is better, her backhand is better, she's better in both offensive and defensive play, she's better at the net, and her movement is better. I think the only check I'd give Maria is the forehand. She is more consistent, but Venus' is still lethal.

Lol .... not even close. Venus wins easy. Wimbledon 2005 was pretty close to what we'll get.

Re: Peak Venus VS Peak Maria

Venus.

She'd be consistently be able to do exactly what Rena and Vika are doing to her today.

Expose her movement and force her to go for too much through being an exceptional mover and first strike player.

If you say Sharapova you are either naive or delusional she wouldn't touch Peak Venus.

If it's aftersurgery Pova, then all of Masha's win were Sjogren's Syndrome Venus.

Two can play at that game

You lost all your credibility in that Peak Maria -v- Peak Serena thread

YOu're not seriously about to argue against "PEAK" Venus being being better than Sharapova are you??

Seriously thanks for the bad rep BUT when you're wrong you're wrong just face facts. Maria is good but Venus is better period.

Re: Peak Venus VS Peak Maria

Venus. Wimbledon 2005 was as close to a Peak vs. Peak match as we've gotten from the pair of them. Maria hit the ball so cleanly and served well and still lost in straights. Venus moves too well.

you lost your credibility when became I.Hate.Sharapova , at the same time pretending to be I.luv.Kvitova/Azarenka/Radwanska etc


Venus second serve still is her main weakness, that's why she is not Serena in achievements and everywhere except grass she is not better that her main competitors including Sharapova

Exactly Venus would run down everything on whatever surface and frustrate Maria. The funny part is though Venus would rarely be on the defensive in this matchup. Playing her best she has too many options. She can finish points from the baseline or at the net. Maria has no Plan B or backup game, if she can't hit you off the court she's not going to win. Let Sharapova attempt to come in to net against Venus and see how often she gets passed.
