Re: Which world #5 is the best player at her peak? Hantuchova, Chakvetadze or Kerber?
Kerber's style, even if effective, is just hideous. And she's just not able to produce this kind of tennis
(until 6-0 2-0 of course
But peak Kerber is certainly mentally stronger than peak Hantuchova. Well I guess, Kerber hasn't won a title near as big as Indian Wells, which Hantuchova has won twice
And she hasn't defeated a player as good as Justine Henin in a GS 7-6 in the third.
Edit: Kerber lost in straight sets to Yakimova last year, she's done for me
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.
