Re: Peak Hingis vs Peak Radwanska

hingis cant go toe to toe with peak serena. h2h is irrelevant. she doesnt possess the power or serve. sorry.

like i said maybe on clay but thats it.
h2h is releavant cause the played many matches close to their best and most of the time they were very close. 100% PEAK is overrated cause it happens one match per year maybe, you have to look on peak as VERY HIGH LEVEL of playing imo which they produced in their matches most of the time. And h2h is 10:11 so for me it's visible their matches would always be close with slight adv to Serena but really very small advantage like the h2h is.

this isnt that big of a deal their are a number of other great players who can do the same actually.

although it doesnt seem like it today of course.
Well actually not too many. I would say it's Hingis, Henin, Venus, Capriati. Of course i don't include other legends from the past who never met Serena cause we don't know how this matches would go. But definetly nowadays some players can do it only occasionally like Stosur playing the match of her life in US Open and that's quite sad, but I love Serena so always better watching her winning the titles than Vika.

i dont know what sharapova fan got against hingis.
Maybe that demolishing job in Tokyo (6:3, 6:1)? yeah i know h2h is 2:1 for Maria but still it was funny how Martina just thrashed her in her 3rd tournament after 4 years out of tennis. She was blasting winners from anywhere. It was Peak Hingis.

Re: Peak Hingis vs Peak Radwanska

After reading some of the pages in this board, I must say...the disrespect!

People who refer Queengis and A. Radwanska as "pushers" in their strategy of play are just trolls. It's that or they just fail to see and appreciate the sheer brilliance behind their crafty play.

Well, back on topic. We can't really have a definite and accurate evaluation of this particular Peak vs Peak discussion because one, Hings have already retired and have accomplished many achievements in relevance of the high level of play she had shown in her best times. We saw her brief stint of dominance and develop as a player until the end of her career. From this, we can certainly point out which months or years did Peak Hingis did rose. Now unlike her, Aga hasn't even reached her A+++ game yet in a sense that she's still quite young and have many opportunities to hone and strengthen the build of her game. Of course, there are still a bit more factors that could affect this discussion like the period in which they played and what not.

If I have a say in this H2H, this post sums up my opinions nicely.

Both are known for their intelligent use of the court and as well as variety in their shots. However, there are differences in their game that sets one apart from the other.

Hingis takes the ball relatively early compared to Aga. This has its merits as it reduces the time her opponent can react thus compensating with the general lack of power in Hingis' groundstrokes. (However, Hingis' backhand dtl is quite vicious enough to surprise the opponent) Yes, Aga does have a good grasp with her angles but so as Hingis. It seems to me that Hingis excels on almost every aspect Radwanska is deemed to be good at. Overall, a better execution of play by the almighty Queengis. Now, another thing I noticed is that she plays offense-to-defense, and vice versa quite well. It is as if she has the initiative to play aggresively all the way when she knows she can easily overpower or outmaneuver her opponent, or quickly adapt to her defensive tactics if she's the one being overpowered. I think Aga lacks that as I see her playing in a passive manner most of the time.

So yeah...go Hingis!

Re: Peak Hingis vs Peak Radwanska

Serena would obviously win the majority of the matches if they were to play each other at their peaks. But you gotta take into account the surface. On grass serena would kill her but everywhere else would be kinda interesting when yout think about it...it would be closer than what most people would think imho.
