Peak Hingis vs Peak Radwanska

Radwanska is always compared by some tennis journalists with Martina , some even dare to call Agnieszka "Hingis 2.0"

They played only one match when Hingis was on a decline and losing to the likes of Laura Granville

Wertheim : "In a classic case of guile versus power, brain versus brawn, Radwanska recalled Martina Hingis at her cagey best and -- in a thoroughly entertaining match -- won the biggest title of her career. A-Rad is a top four player now (and closing fast on Petra Kvitova) and, predicated as it is on accuracy and movement, her game translates well to clay."

Re: Peak Hingis vs Peak Radwanska

Yes, please close this.

The ridiculous part of this poll is that Hingis is already done and we already know everything about her, while Radwanska never peaked yet. She is still going up, she hasn't accomplished anything big yet, she is still only a promise, and that process may take several seasons. It's the same as peak Hingis vs peak Robson. Are you kidding me?

Radwanska is 23 , Hingis won all her Slams by that time , Seles - 8 , Sharapova -3 , Serena -6 etc No discounts for yourth , it's for Laura Robson , not for those who are in peak age in tennis

in Miami we have seen peak Radwanska , i don't think she will play much better than in her best matches in 2012

Miami 2012 was not Peak Radwanska.

Anyways, Hingis rather comfortably. But your intentions with this thread are obvious.

it was all fine until this post. we all thought that this thread was made because the off season is long and boring and then you post this and try to make it look like a serious discussion.

Re: Peak Hingis vs Peak Radwanska

Age does not matter. Serena and Sharapova won their slams while still teens, but Aga's development is completely different. She may peak this season or in four years. But as long as the person is still playing and does not show any signs of slowing then it does not make sense to apply the 'peak' adjective to that person.

i just answered to "Radwanska is too young" She isn't, she is quite experienced and her peak form was in 2012 , she serves at her max level for her physical abilities. probably she will play 3-5 years next on this level. Not much she can improve in her game.

Re: Peak Hingis vs Peak Radwanska

both are basically the same player, just one was lucky to be born a decade earlier and didn't have a discomfort of being blown away by the amazones of power tennis yet...Radwanksa would be a multiple slam winner now if she happened to play in the late 90's too

OK, if we're making it look like a serious thread, then I'll say, as Aga's fan, that her fh still has a room for improvement, even her backhand. If she really wants to play on a high level for like 5 years, there will have to be some adjustments. I think she's capable of making them. She'll never be close enough to Martina's peak level to make a serious discussion tho.

Did Masha retire this year? A lot of "peak" adjectives attached to her name this off season

I haven't started a single 'peak' thread.
