When we compare the current No.2 and current No.4 to each other, Maria Sharapova and Agnieszka Radwanska had only two head-to-head matches in 2012. Radwanska was better in Miami Final (7-5, 6-4) and Sharapova was better in YEC match (5-7,7-5,7-5). Both of them also reached finals on grass, Aga at the Wimbledon Championships (loss to Serena Williams 1-6, 7-5, 2-6) and Maria at the Summer Olympics (loss to Serena Williams 0-6, 1-6).

If we see well-rested and recharged Radwanska in 2013, she might cause lots of troubles for Sharapova, or at least for very long matches. Hopefully Aga doesn´t have to wear the bandage on her shoulder anymore.

Sharapova needed to exorcise her Miami demons and she did just that in Istanbul. Future matches won't be nearly as hard for Sharapova to win and she'll need to have a REALLY bad day to lose to Radwanska again.

Re: Predict who will win the 2013 head-to-head between Sharapova and Azarenka

This should actually be a pretty exciting rivalry. Based on 2012 results, I would give Azarenka the edge on hardcourts and Maria the obvious edge on clay. I am actually really hoping for a Wimbledon match between these two, because I would love to see how they match up on grass. I agree that Maria is getting stronger in their hardcourt matches, though, so it should be close. Maybe 4-3 Azarenka?

Serena Williams


Vee Wozniacki Kerber

She's definitely going to lose to Aga more times.

Re: Predict who will win the 2013 head-to-head between Sharapova and Azarenka

at people thinking Maria will beat Vika more times in 2013 than in her entire career

The 'usual' which is Azarenka beating Maria quite comfortably will continue, of course there will always be exceptions to the rule, hence Maria's odd wins here and there, but it'll be one-sided once again for Vika. It's simply a fundamental match-up issue. Unless Maria is painting the lines on every second shot (Stuttgart), she just can't hit through Vika.

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Redundant thread.

Peak Vika cannot lose to Masha of any level - she hasn't lost to her in years (when was the last time Vika lost a match outside clay and season endings (when players may have a higher propensity to be tired)?

Re: Predict who will win the 2013 head-to-head between Sharapova and Azarenka

Sharapova will win a match, either on clay or in a YEC-like situation where she takes advantage of the circumstances. But on HC if both are fit and healthy? I don't see it.... so my guess is 4-1.

Her stans should really get used to the idea of her having a negative career H2H, her chances of turning that around are more than slim.

Don't you worry, mate I've long come to terms with her not winning a single match anywhere against WS, Azarenka, Kvitova, Radwanska, Kerber and Wozniacki. Sharapova is the ultimate punchbag of the current WTA Top 10 and even Top 20 if you add Lisicki She can only win matches if the draw opens up for her and she receives a cakewalk into GS QF or anywhere else. It's a fact, period.
