WWW: Peak Azarenka vs Peak Jankovic??

One has slightly more power off of both wings but the other has much better speed and court coverage.
I'd think it'd be a good match but id take peak Jelena in 3 sets.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Peak Azarenka would have a serve, Vika in 2.

A serve doesn't mean a good one
We also forget JJ had one of the best returns in the game.

It's really hard to say. I'm leaning toward Peak Azarenka on all surfaces except clay. I think it'd be an interesting matchup.

Yeah. JJ can't blow Vika off the court.

Victoria Azarenka.
Serena Williams. Maria Sharapova.

Wozniacki. Stosur. Jankovic. Bouchard. Halep. Muguruza.
Venus. Stephens. Cornet. Hampton. Bencic.
Seles. Henin. Davenport. Hingis. Clijsters.

Re: WWW: Peak Azarenka vs Peak Jankovic??

Has already been discussed here (+ Wozniacki):
Peak Azarenka v. Peak Jankovic v. Peak Wozniacki...... Who would win

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Re: WWW: Peak Azarenka vs Peak Jankovic??

I think it's also a hard discussion is because both Vika and JJ are players who mainly thrive off making their opponents play badly (making them hit a lot of UE, long rallies to get into their head). Peak vs. Peak discussions are much easier for say, Peak Serena vs. Peak Pierce

Re: WWW: Peak Azarenka vs Peak Jankovic??

Azarenka has a better game so even at that I would go with her, but considering she is MUCH tougher mentally that would swing it even more in her favor.

Peak Azarenka will annihilate Jankovic on hard and grass. Peak Azarenka has a better backhand, a much better forehand, much better net game, better return of serve, better serve and a much better mentality.

Peak Jankovic would win on clay at this point. Azarenka anywhere else though. Hard courts would be Azarenka pretty easily.

Exactly, and she's way tougher mentally than JJ.


Vika in (easy) 2 on hard, 3 on grass. JJ in 3 on clay.

Re: WWW: Peak Azarenka vs Peak Jankovic??

How can you say Peak Azarenka would have a serve when she's barely made visible progress in that area over the years?

Jelena has played plenty of matches where she served unbelievably well, far better than Azarenka ever has. Plus at her peak, JJ's backhand would hold up well against Azarenka's but the far better BHDTL would make Jankovic's BH better IMO.

It's easy to see Azarenka'd win on hard and Jankovic on clay, though I really don't know for sure how their grass and indoor matches would go.

JJ making the YEC is a huge question mark still and neither of them are even close to "peak" form
