Right now..at least two players who probably beat Maria on grass when they play their best: Serena and Petra.

But Maria's a contender for sure.
It's not like she's done nothing on grass since winning Wimbledon. A final and two semis since is nothing to scoff at

Double standards

only Serena is a an obstacle for Masha on grass, but for whom isn't she an unovercomebale obstacle? ,As for Petra, Masha can play with her and chances on grass are at least 50/50 now...

I only stated that Maria hasn't had the second best results on grass. All I stated.

As for closer to winning a Wimbledon, Serena's a firmer grip on Wimbledon than anybody has on RG, soo...

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Where did you get that idea? She lost to Lisicki last year . In form Petra and Vika (and apparently Lisicki ) may both be too much for her on this surface, maybe we'll know more after this year's Wimbledon.

I really want to see Azarenka and Sharapova play on grass, mostly because I have no idea who has the edge. Azarenka's ability to redirect pace will be an asset, as will her underrated net ability, but Maria has a bigger, more reliable serve and more overall firepower. Hopefully they play at Wimbledon next season.

It's an interesting matchup, not so easy to call.

Jesus...I feel sorry for you now You actually helped me make an important point as most of you trolls usually blame me that I`m a fan of Vika because of her success.. which as this posting proves is no true at all as she won her slam and was #1 for three months at this point

I've never claimed to have always been Vika's biggest fan, I've always liked her and defended her but It wasn't until this year that I really warmed up to her on a personal level and personal affection is the only reason I root for players. So I will never root for your charisma-free PR robot, even though you secretly want me to

By the way, I don't want to ruin the suspense for you as I'm sure you`re crawling through another 11 months of my postings as we speak but once you get to January you'll find plenty of my postings defending her in the whole shrieking debate vs. Radwanska. Not that you will be dragging those up because they don't fit your narrative
Honey I just happened to remember that post and thought it was funny how you have become her fan just because of her success and seemed to have abandoned Karolina. And if you knew anything about that 'debate,' you would know that it had nothing to do with her shriek

Also I'm not even that big of her fan, I just think you saying she has no personality, is a bitch, and I think I remember you calling her a whore etc. is totally irrational.

In his defense you were praising a match between two players you apparently didn't like all that much, and that is a rarity around here

Well you still have not giving me or anyone a proof that Petra has had better result than Maria on Grass. Maria has 1 title 2 finals (1 being Olympics) couple of SFs. Petra has 1 title and 2 QFs (one being Olympics). Sorry but Those reasults are more inclined to put Maria ahead. Even if you consider only the last couple years, Maria has 2 finals and 1 4th rd while Petra has 1 title and 2 QFs. Which put them even in the total of matches won on grass in the last 2 years. If you wanna find out who has the edge you'd have to look at older results which give a clear edge to Maria with 2 SFs and 1 Title . If that doesn't convince you, it'd be easy to say that Kvitova's win at wimbledon was kind of a fluke cuz she failed to back that result this year in not only Grass court tournaments (remember she got 2 chances to do well this year) but any other tournaments losing in SF to Sharapova in her best 2 slams this year.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Vika's game is better than Maria's game in every aspect bar the serve, peak Vika wins.
