This is my order too.

Actually, it's so close between Davenport and Novotna.... Both were amazing on grass.

LMAO at Maria hating on this forum againNID
Peak Pova would humiliate all these bishes on any sort grass, banging down the aces and working the angles like there's no tomorrow. Novotna and Wingis would never know what hit them in the first place...as for Davenport, we have 2004 match on display, where inexperienced teen Masha dismissed peak Lindsay with authority in the final set. Nuff said

Davenport >Notovotna >Sharapova >Hingis.

I favour Davenport due to her serving potency on the surface compared to everyone else, and the sheer weight of shot, angle and also the ability to finish points off in the forecourt.

Although, Novotna is by far the most innate grass court-player on the list, and leagues above everyone else athletically.

Re: Peak on Grass: Sharapova VS Novotna VS Davenport VS Hingis?

Davenport > Novotna > Sharapova > Hingis

Peak Hingis would still beat Peak Novotna on grass, she would lob her to death, that's how she won Wimbledon

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Hingis is a lightweight on grass, lucked out to win a fluke Wimbledon in a year of a super weak grass field, and Jana injured and choking in the final.
it's such skewed logic to state that Davenport isn't a good win on grass because of her movement. she's a former champ and seemed pretty impressive on grass in 05 too, she's good on grass despite her movement, as she is pretty much everywhere bar clay

Inexperienced? Please that was peak Maria on grass, 2012 Sharapova wouldn't win more than 5 games against any of these players at their peak on grass
