I think Sprem does, but not as consistently as Sharapova.

sprem, but she has inconsistency written all over her.

Same? Sprem had it up at 119 mph yesterday.

Sprem hits harder, but Maria hits flatter giving her less control.

Same? Sprem had it up at 119 mph yesterday.thats just the serve, I think we're talking about groundies. I've seen Sharapova, but not Sprem, so I don't know. but the way people have been talking, probably Sprem.

I think Maria hits harder but Sprem is much more consistent (well from the match I saw against Venus yesterday)
Jun 25th, 2004, 05:01 PM
definately sprem, i cant see sharapova outpowering venus.
Jun 25th, 2004, 08:06 PM
Sprem of course!

Sprem. But because she takes the ball so early, that's what did it.
Venus was on her back foot more so in that match than she was in some against Serena.

Sprem hits with a bit more top spin, and she hits harder than Maria as well. Maria wouldn't be able to overpower Venus, as somebody said earlier.

Sharapove looks like a better player, but I'd say Sprem hits the ball harder
Jun 25th, 2004, 08:19 PM
yeah, i was surprised how much spin sprem puts on the ball. till i saw her in eastbourne, it really jumps up!

I think the key point is this: Sprem hits the ball EARLIER, but Sharapova hits it harder....I mean the girl can blast the ball for sure!!
Jun 25th, 2004, 08:32 PM
they sure do both make some noise and effort into their shots
Jun 25th, 2004, 08:44 PM
Sharapova........but Sprem can hit hard to any where in the court. Maria needs time to set up and unleash the monster.
