Re: Is Marion greater than Agnieska Radwanska ?

Bartoli has a wimbledon title and made another Wimbledon final. So she is greater at the moment.

Maybe in the futur Radwanska can pass her?

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

my argument is more compelling anyways. if bartoli is so much greater than radwanska than you'd imagine she could win more than one set in 7 meetings. perhaps she isn't greater than radwanska at all?

Well, I'll tell you what. Why don't you tweet Aggie or send her a message via facebook and ask her if she'd rather have a grand slam win or the regular titles that she's already accomplished.

The reason the players play the regular tournaments is to prepare them for the Grand Slams, just like the NBA players play 80 plus game to prepare themselves for the NBA Championship and to win a ring. The same with baseball players and why they play over 100 games to go to the world series. The football players play about 40 plus games to go to the super bowl. Same with Hockey. Out of all of the other players who have played like Aggie, how many of them do you know about and is talked about unless they win the "Big One". Sergio Garcia can talk about Tiger Woods and his lifestyle, and how much he hates his guts. But until he wins one of those major titles or the "Masters and get a Green Jacket, he will not be mentioned with the greats like Jack Nicholas, Tiger Woods, VJ Singh, Phil, and the other great golfers. No baseball, basketball, football, hockey, golf player, etc is remembered for playing all of those matches if they don't win the one of the big ones, or the big one.

Name the girls like Aggie who played during the Big Babe tennis era and did not win. We focus or talk about Seles, Venus, Serena, Lindsey, Hingis, Jen Cap, Kimmy, Justine, Pierce, Amelie, Eva, Myskina, Conchita Martinez, Kutzy, Myskina, Ana, Na, Sam, Maria cause she came in at the tail end of that group of big hitters who had won one or multiple grand slams and regular titles, and because they all held the #1 spot at some point in their careers. There are a few others who won grand slams, but we don't talk about those who didn't win anything cause only the Grand Slam Winners matter.

There are over 50 basket ball, baseball, hockey, and football teams who play all season long. But who remembers any of them if they don't win the Big Title and get a trophy and/or ring. There are a lot of cats who box, but if they can't win the heavy weight, middle weight or welter/feather weight titles to get their belt, then who remembers them. Look at the hundreds of athletes who play and win in regular competition for four years. But if they don't win a Gold Medal who remembers them.

Re: Is Marion greater than Agnieska Radwanska ?

Marion gamestyle is much, much more interesting to watch than Agnieszka, in my opinion.

And with the Wimbledon title, Marion is greater than Agniezska so far, this is pretty obvious.

But I think Agnieszka will win a slam sometime in the future.

Just noticed, Agnieszka is missing the z in the title, can that be changed?

Speak for yourself.

BTW It's funny to see how those die hard Aga fans picturing the MTO-Faker eventually vulture a slam

Bartoli is clearly greater than bewitching Aga.

this topic is less straightforward than you think considering Aga's 100% record over Marion.

nah Aga's clearly dominant and decisive h2h against Marion should be disregarded because Marion got lucky for two weeks in one of the weakest slam wins of all time.

who cares if Marion can only win a single set in 7 meetings against Aga, shes still a greater player somehow.

It's not like Radwanska was #1 for 67 weeks or anything, so Marion obviously.
