Or maybe I am? Relax, it is just me, Ana's fan, defending my sweetheart. Stop taking comments so seriously here guys. It's just forum after all.

Only one of them was good enough to beat Henin on clay in 2007. Kuzzy.

Re: PEAK on CLAY: Ivanovic vs Kuzzy vs Jankovic vs Safina

People seem to be confusing their faves/actual results VS 'peak form'
Regardless of who won what Final or who beat Henin on clay at their BEST on CLAY....
Safina/Kuznetsova--Ivanovic------Jankovic.

Sure Sveta got that one win on clay over Henin, but it was Henin's 2nd match that day after playing a marathon with none other than...Jankovic. That's just as credible as Safina ending Henin's 1st career and on clay at that.

Hadn't Justine played like two matches that day? Berlin 2007 was crazy with rain all through it. It's hardly a completely fair benchmark when it's highly likely the other three would have had a shot under the same circumstances.

Oops! I forgot about that. I stand corrected. I'd still back Kuzzy at her best though.

Re: PEAK on CLAY: Ivanovic vs Kuzzy vs Jankovic vs Safina

Out of these Peak Kuznetsova, with her fluky Tier I and impressive RG run and record.

But Peak Nadija would slay each and single one of them.

LEGEND. Nicole. Caro. Aga. Sloane. Taylor.

Still riding that Ivanovic coaster

At her peak, I think Ivanovic would handle peak Sveta, just a good match up, but Sveta is a better clay courter.

Svetlana easily. I'd say Safina is second, however there would be a case for Ana because of her success on clay but I don't think it's enough to over shadow Safina's ability.

Kuz took the most games off Henin in a RG final.

Re: PEAK on CLAY: Ivanovic vs Kuzzy vs Jankovic vs Safina

Sveta>Safina>Ana>Janko. Safina was actually a beast on clay, too bad she couldn't seal the deal at RG.

Sveta is obviously the way more talented of the group, what an underachiever.

Always bet on black!
