Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika

this thread is a joke......one fluke match(2004 wimbledon final) does not account for anybody's peak......azarenka actually registered two wins over sharapova in slams in sharapova's slam winning year......

vika stood between sharapova and what would have been the best season of her career winning 2 slams......

I don't think anyone consider sharapova's peak her wimbledon 2004 . Nobody is denying that Vika played better than Sharapova THIS YEAR but a year doesn't make a career and if THIS is Vika's peak (which I don't really think so, hope not) I'm sorry but the Sharapova who won the AO in 2008 or Sharapova who won the USO in 2006 would trash her.

It is..if you're arguing that she had the second best results on grass after Serena, no?!

Doesn't matter either way, so nah..it's cool.

It's (at least in my case) not a matter of supporting or cringing. Let's just say that I find it amusing. It's not as though she's selling hand guns, it's just candy - who cares? But perhaps she will one day get into the Maria bananas or orangepova business for compensation.

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

as I said I wasn't arguing the spot she was on grass but just stating that she was one of the best on grass. Now is she before or after Kvitova is not really important and is an arguable decision. 2nd or 3rd best on the surface make you one of a contestant for fast court title, that's what I was saying.

That's something different. Your first statement was that ONLY Serena had better results than Masha on grass, so I corrected you just slightly. It's not debatable..2 finals lost in lopsided fashion < 1 title.

Just my two cents,

Always bet on black!

well 2 finals is better than 1 title, it shows more consistency on the surface. You can't forget that Maria also has a title there, it's not like if she's never won it. If you wanna go into that debate it's up to you but that was not the point.

A title 8 years ago? You sure wanna bring that up?
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.

when you bring Serena's red clay titles from the time Before Christ it's ok with you. When it turns to Masha who not only won Wimbledon later than Serena RG but managed to get as close to the title as get in Final recently (+final at Olympics at the same Venue) - that's irrelevant for you ....

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...
