Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika

I had no idea there was a difference between Vika and Maria fans
They're all just cyrillic usernames and broken english to me

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

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.
Maria's the better player right now..but on grass? I think Petra vs Masha h2h, Petra wins..Maria's posted some consistent results, but I think everybody is in agreement that Petra on grass is more fearsome than Masha.

Always bet on black!

Seriously? Highly doubt that, when in 'peak' form Petra hits way more winners off the ground than Maria

Indoors?! I wouldn't say rip apart, but she could make a match of it..on grass? No hope.

It would simply be a different story against Peak Pova I think we've seen this enough times this year and Maria is nowhere near her peak.

On indoors I'm firmly convinced that Maria's peak is too good for anyone other than Peak Serena, Henin and Venus.
On grass yes Maria from 2004 would make a match of it but this one, not so sure I agree.

Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika

I think the Maria that showed up this year at OG could definitely take on this year's Petra at both Wimbledon and OG. Current Petra was far from the form she was in in '10/'11.
I would probably give Petra of '10/'11 the edge on grass although this year at OG was the first time in a while Maria didn't play clay court tennis on a grass court, so I would like to see a match where Maria is playing proper grass court tennis vs Kvitova playing her best on the surface.

I would definitely give the edge to Maria indoors. No question.

Yuryevna,
Always

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)

Would be a good match...and Masha wins probably. Can see it happen.

Have you ever seen them play? Peak Maria does everything better than peak Vika except net play and defense.
