Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika
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.
She already revenged vs Lisicki at Olympics, the only reason why she lost at Wimbledon was her clay season-oriented training she just didn't managed to adjust her game to grass surface quick
As for Petra , she isn't anywhere close to her 2011's form and doing too much errors through the whole 2012 season and there are no preconditions that it's going to change in 2013, what is more Masha now knows how to play with her , because at Wimbledon 2011 her tactics vs Petra was the worst possible , now she knows what is in Petra's comfort zone and what isn't
Hogsted is a clever coach , he managed to figure out right tactics vs most dangerous players apart from Serena , i mean Petra and Li
PS: Sharapova from 2005 would have beaten Petra in any form, Petra is not Venus , she is neither faster nor more athletic than peak Pova and even her serve in 2011 is nowhere close to peak Masha's serve (both 1st and 2nd)
