Re: Peak Novotna vs peak Sabatini
This was an interesting rivarly because while Sabatini has a sizable head-to-head lead, quite a few of them (at least 3) of Gaby's wins were in matches where Jana had at least one match point. And that kind of illustrates why I'd go with Gaby on everything except grass. Jana was capable of choking on an epic level even at her very best, while Gaby was much more consistent mentally. Of course, Gaby would have remarkable choke-a-thons later herself, but by then she was nowhere near her peak level.
