if you wanna argue that go ahead. If you wanna take sly shots are Kim then do one.

I don't see how Vika's "nature of the game" is any worse than Cappy's or Medusha's TBH. Davenport's game was certainly something else but her relative slowness and mental weakness do cancel that out as well.

Never said that Azarenka's career is greater than Sharapova's.

Capriati's and clijsters movement you could argue were some of the best we have seen in tennis. Clijsters backhand is one of the best, capriati was a fighter to rival henin and serena. Davenport had one of the best serves and cleanest groundies we have ever seen.

I don't see anything in Vika's game that even now sets her apart from others let alone up with some of the best of all time.

Vika's backhand and return surpass Cappy's by far for instance and I could elaborate more if you want but that is not the topic of this thread.

I love you sickfalsetto. Happy new year.

Matt01 please never change. Btw do you think Maria might have a better 2013 year than Vika? I do.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

You don't become Serena's toughest rival at her peak without being an amazing returner like capriati was. Capriati and clijsters were amazing at getting big servers returns back in court, they could get returns back in court Vika would never get a racket on.

Possibly, yes. I do think that Vika will win most of their matches on HC, though.
