Who was more popular in their prime, Kournikova or Sharapova?

Don't know. It's hardly fair comparison, Maria is a tennis player who does some modelling on the side. Kournikova a model who sometimes strayed to the court until she got fed up with it.

Kournikova was never relevant.

she's a former top 10 player and GS SFist. On top of that she won two doubles slams. Not bad for someone irrelevant :lol:

But the world's highest paid female athlete wins this one.

Not true, Anna was a very talented player. Her run in Miami 1998 was seriously impressive taking down 4 top ten players including outplaying Davenport in her slam winning years. She didn't win the title but that's beside the point. Both Anna and Maria are very talented women, but Maria was able to produce success.

Kournikova. She was a household name. Sharapova isn't.

That's just not true. Almost everyone knows who Maria Sharapova is.

You're kidding right? Sharapova is 10x more of a household name than Kournikova ever was.
