If we go solely by both players stats and even overall H2H Maria is the better player, even on grass. Maria has loss 3 sets in 5 matches (not counting the retirement) against Petra...I don't see much of a debate here. The only thing that makes you think that Petra has a chance is the one time they played on grass Petra won, but you need to understand that one tournament doesn't make the general habit of a player, it was also the only win over Maria that Petra has.
How so, she didn't reach it? She gave Serena a better match than Maria did this year and it can be argued that it is MARIA that didn't reach the level she reached last year.yeah she reached the Olympics finals, but who did she beat, that she wasn't supposed to beat?

On grass, right now..Petra's more scary ( because if she catches fire, it's goodnight..) than Maria, because Maria is what she is..

Always bet on black!

It doesn't mean anything. Maria beat Kirilenko 2 and 3 while Kirilenko defeated Kvitova please
And Lisicki had beaten Maria just 2 weeks before OG so, and we saw that it wasn't that easy since Lisicki was really playing well and very confident.

No she isn't, not when you see her losing to the likes of Kirilenko.
It's way too easy to use "if" and it can work with every player not only Kvitova you know.

No she isn't, not when you see her losing to the likes of Kirilenko.
Maria lost to Kirilenko sometime at the Oz open too, no? As defending champ, no less.
Stuff like that happen..but I guess we'll see how it goes. Petra needs to get her act together, otherwise..

Always bet on black!

Maria was the defending champ of the '09 AO, which she didn't play. Not that it's important to the point you were making though

So what ? This has nothing to do with it we're not talking about Maria's level back in 2010 but right now btw I'm pretty sure that she wasn't THE defending champ, your fave was.

Yeah stuff like this happen but when you're trying to put Kvitova's level very high when we know that she lost to Kirilenko on grass, that's not gonna work.
Beside I think we're all aware that Lisicki is a bigger threat on grass than Kirilenko will ever be.

And the Petra who lost to Kirilenko is peak Petra?! Maria's the only one whose losses when she's slumping shouldn't held against?! Ah the Mashatards.

Lisicki might be a greater threat than Kirilenko for MASHA..it's about match-ups.

Which cancels the point you were trying to make earlier when you said that Kvitova gave a tougher match to Serena than Maria did.
Like you said it's all about match-up and so far Maria ain't an easy one for Kvitova, already 0-3 down this season and 1-4 overall.

are you still clinging onto that fluke Wimby win for KvittyGOAT? Bish please, Maria owns that erratic ass whenever she plays at least decent tennis. The likes of Kirilenko and Radwanska have much better chances of beating Maria than this slow ballbasher with erratic game...Maria NEVER had trouble with the likes of Kvitty in her career

Well, they both have ONE Wimbledon..so I don't see how one would be fluke and the other wouldn't?!
Not saying Petra's the better player, but that on particular surface GRASS, she might be better..
