LOL what is interesting about this. Peak Henin would KILL Azarenka on every surface. Maybe at the Australian Open or Miami they would occasionaly have a 3 setter, won by Henin each time, and that is it.

Azarenka is considered by TF members - future multiple GS winner with more Slams than Sharapova and Clijsters together :) and you are downgrading her so quick :lol:

1. She is not going to win 7 slams like Henin did that is for sure.

2. It is well known that unless the field drastically improves winning slams in this era wont require you to be as good as it did for players past, such as Sharapova (who atleast won some slams in a much stronger field in 04-08 when she was a better player than today) and Davenport.

3. Azarenka does not present any matchup problems for Henin the way she does for Sharapova for instance. Henin never had problems with that type of player. The only players she has problems with are ones like Mauresmo who can topspin the ball above her head, and who could also play an impeccable all court game as well or better than her in some ways, or players who could blast her off the court like the Williams or Sharapova or on occasion an in form Clijsters. What Azarenka brings to the table would be no issue for Henin.

I also would like to hear the reasons for anyone who thinks Azarenka would beat peak Henin on any surface, lol!

It is true that a thread like this puts into perspective the good old days. The era that had Venus, Serena, Henin Clijsters, Sharapova, Hingis, Capriati, Mauresmo, Kuznetsova, Davenport, Pierce, at their best at various points is probably the best ever. Obviously there are individual greater players in history than most of those, but that was the deepest group of all time. Even the quite good players of today like Azarenka and Kvitova would be quite irrelevant back then, never mind the poor excuses of top players and even slam winners of today like Radwanska, Stosur, Na, Kerber, and a few others whatshernames.

:lol: Azrenka would be whipped handily by Juju even more embarassingly. Against Serena or Venus she could at least (maybe) depend on sloppy returning and errors from her relentless grinding, not to mention that Vuvu needs pace to work off. Juju would eat her alive and humiliate that serve. She was a consistent returner and could take the initiative in rallies as well.

Uh, no.

We are talking about peaks. Peak Venus and Peak Serena would destroy Peak Azarenka worse than Peak Henin. Peak Venus and Serena wouldn't have sloppy returning and errors - duh.

Serena is 5-0 vs peak Azarenka , including matches where she didn't even try to play well and matches where she didn't notice from peak Vika any resistance like at Olympics and Madrid

if we imagine Serena + Juju in WTA2012, it would have meant no titles for Azarenka this year at all

I did not say Vuvu stood a chance against SErena or Venus, just that her type of hard-down-the-middle play is likely to force more errors from Serena/Venus than Juju.

Peak does not mean 4 winners per game and 0 UE. Your opponent is going to do her part as well.

Nov 20th, 2012, 05:22 AM
I agree that of all the top players of the last decade or so Henin is probably the one peak to peak Azarenka would have least chance against, other than maybe peak of peaks Serena of 2002. Against Serena or Venus she could atleast exploit her consistency advantage, and disrupt their rythym with variety, and use the down the centre tactic Capriati used well. Against prime Henin she would be completely useless, there is nothing she could do which would be effective, she cant outhit her, she isnt more consistent than Henin, she cant outmaneuver her, she definitely doesnt play better defense or run better.

Pretty much a moot point as she would go 0-15 vs all of them, or maybe 1-14 or 2-13 vs peak Venus with the occasional win over Venus on a slow hard court when Venus had an off day, which was prone to from time to time on slower courts even in her peak periods (on clay it wouldnt matter since Azarenka is too useless there to ever beat peak Venus).

I'll just post this one time, and I am out of here, but remember with that scenario, Masha would have been titleless too and still missing her career grand slam.

Oh, and no threads about Vika in GM, mainly b/c her true fans don't care about GM and stay in Vikaland, we don't have a need to create weird peak threads etc and try to make our player relevant. She's relevant for us, that's enough.

Also NID that the usual suspects, Maria fans respectively Azarenka haters, posted in this thread as well.

Peak henin obviously wins on clay with bakery products, no one - past or present- can move as well on clay as she could. She also wins on fast hc and indoors handily and a tougher win on grass.

Rebound ace and other slow paced hardcourts go to Azarenka. Henin, even at her peak, never managed to win miami and was really lucky to win her sole Australian open title.

It's quite pointless at this point as we haven't even seen peak Azarenka, she is young and has a lot of areas to develop. In fact she has indeed visibly improved in a lot of these areas this year.

As far as henin does everything better than Azarenka is concerned, I disagree. Imo Azarenka has better ROS, can redirect pace much better andher backhand is much more solid even if less explosive and can't be exploited like henin's can. In rallies she might not have as much pace or width as peak henin did, but she can maintain a much better depth on a more consistent basis, which is her one of her main weapon.

She also has a better mindset - not the kind of person who would cheat to win or tank a match because she is afraid to face the opponent in the next match.

Not really. Henin's fh is a more powerful shot than bh, but her bh was an amazing defensive shot and very versatile as well, it's also very powerful, especially considering that it's one-handed. Azarenka's bh is OTOH very solid, but there's hardly any comparison.

Well Azarenka is 23 now. Henin who was a late bloomer for current tennis standards had already won 3 of 4 slams at one stretch before she turned 22.

Time will tell but while we dont know how many slams Azarenka will win, it could be anywhere from 1 to 7 for all we know (mostly likely something like 3 or 4) I doubt we will see her level increase much or any. I am pretty sure we are already witnessing pretty clear to her very peak tennis and I will be surprised if that is proven otherwise. I also dont think she will have a better year than 2012, she could have another equal year (or two), but that is it.

Yup.


I am not hating on Vika at all, I like her a lot so... maybe she will improve more in the future, but as for now, because this thread is dated of the 20th november 2012, Vika would not stand a chance against Henin, even on slow hardcourts. It's not a question of Henin never winning Miami and whatnot, it's a question of match-up. Just like Henin never lost to Jankovic in ten matches.
Maybe the scorelines of their potential matchs are wrong, but IMO the result is NID. Henin struggled more against the likes of Mauresmo or Sharapova/Serena/Venus. I think it would be more interesting to talk about peak Henin vs peak Kvitova, on grass and indoors.

Not that much of an OUCH in my opinion really. Undoubtedly,it is a disgusting sig,but he may argue it only proves he was spending the time of his life watching a final in the biggest stage of sports. It is not as pathetic as lurking into a player's forum whom you supposedly dont like to count the number of viewers. The same 3 mashatards give a new definition to pathetic. And it is really disheartening for neutral maria fans like me coz because of such few tards entire masha fan base is ridiculed. Jmo.

Hear hear. I get it, some fans from certain fanbases do stupid things all the time. At least you sound like one of the more reasonable neutral fans around here. :)

I see Debby has spoken. :oh:

Once again this forum has let me down. What a great opportunity and none of you thought to just say Azarenka would win on any surface. You realize that NashaMasha is obsessed with Azarenka and nothing? Just Henin would win. Yeah no shit.

Not that picking somebody as talented and successful as Henin to get his desired response isnīt a compliment for Azarenka in itself. :lol:

Don't be so butthurt, these 2 never played each other it would have been a good matchup to see at their very best but obviously Henin would prevail.

Major LOL at the people claiming that Azarenka's backhand was in any way better than Henin's. Apart from the versatility Henin had the best backhand slice on tour and her amazing defensive abilities were built on that backhand

where is Oscar for the best post in the thread? :clap2:

Someone wake up the mods, or is it still not obvious to them that the OP created this thread only to hate on a certain player? :facepalm:

PS: It's interesting to observe how people in this thread as well as in the Peak Aga vs Peak Hingis thread apparently can see into the future as they are totally convinced that we've already seen the peak of both players. Tennis must be really boring to them.

PPS: Debby, why making so much effort to state something that is obvious anyway? :lol:

6 people did actually vote for Maria winning peak to peak even on clay, but nobody had the guts to speak out in a post about it. Just like 3 people even voted for Azarenka to beat Henin even on clay, but I imagine all 3 are just for the LOLz since even here nobody could actually be that stupid.
