This isn't meant to be a serious question but people are acting as if Sharapova somehow miraculously gets to the final she will steam roll Jankovic on clay. :rolleyes:at the amount of respect JJ gets in GM. Chakvetadze is another player people act like is not even top 20. Granted she's not playing well this year, but still...

How do you judge it? By how far they get at RG? By who they beat on clay?
They both grew up in Bradenton. They must have played a lot as kids.

I don't exactly understand why ppl come up with these similar threads? comparing maria with all the top 50 in different threads is awkward!!

I was going to say "is this thread a joke" until I saw that it's not meant to be serious.

JJ but I think Maria would still be able to beat her on clay.

Jankovic is the better clay-courter, hands down.

Whichever one is the Italian Open and Charleston Champion :)

Jelena has won Tier I tournaments in succession on both red and green clay.

Jelena by far is the better clay courter, she has much more experience on the surface. Maria is learning.

Considering Jelena beat Maria on GRASS, and considering Jelena can actually move her feet and hit a ball unlike Maria who looks like her life is coming to an end if she has to move on clay, I am going to take a risk and say Jelena. :)

Can't wait for the Charleston QF! :D

I would say JJ is the better clay courter. She can give Maria a run for her money on non-clay surfaces, much less a clay surface that is suited for her style.

JJ is already one of the best (if not the best) defensive player on the tour and clay helps to make her defensive game even stronger.

I think when they retire, Maria will have better FO results.
That's because she's a better tennis player, not because she's a better clay courter.

Jelena of course.

Not even a question:help: Of course, Jankovic. But this poll is a bit unfair, the answer is already obvious so there is no point of it. It's like starting a 'Who Achieved More- Sharapova or Jankovic?' thread.

This poll has no sense Maria is a cow on ice on clay :lol:

This cannot be a serious question. jelena by a long hot is the better clay courter. A blind/deaf dog could have told you that!!!
