Re: Who is greater,Dementieva or Bartoli?

Lets look at it this way....Marcelo Rios is WAY more notable of a player post-retirement than plenty of GS winners on both tours. Way more talked about, as an elite player (because he was one), and...

Re: Who is greater,Dementieva or Bartoli?

Marion Bartoli will be looked at in the same breath as a Thomas Johansson or Francesca Schiavone after she retires. Not really remembered as anything consequential as a player, someone who got that...

Re: Since when has Bartoli been such an elite player?

The history books say one thing. Reputation wise, there is no question Dementieva is above Bartoli. Will that remain true post-retirement for Bartoli? We'll see. But as it stands now, it's clear who...

Re: WTA Big 4 Possible?

There is no Big 3. It's the Big 1. And that's Serena.

Re: Wimbledon R1: [1] Serena def. Minella 6-1 6-3

Serena played well enough. This really was a warm-up and a formality, so there's nothing to take from this match going forward if you're a fan of Serena, considering she will turn it up when she...

Re: Wimbledon R1: Cadantu d. (28) Paszek 62 75

She has QF Canada points to come off soon. That's when her ranking will really tank even further.

Surprising result considering Alexandra is 0-5 off clay this season and basically is as pure a...

The people who see Maria or Serena like Goddesses won't and don't see it my way :lol:

Re: Serena-Maria comments thread with some Azarenka thrown in (keep this civil)

Reading about 20 pages of comments, what's clear is most people here are too biased to actually be objective and will defend their fave player, no matter what they say or do.

Neither Serena nor...

Re: Errani is the women's version of David Ferrer

They're somewhat similar players, but Ferrer is a lot more offensive minded and has pop in his game and a good serve for his height. Errani really doesn't match that.

Re: RG R1: Rybarikova def. Parmentier 6-0 6-1 in 61 minutes

Well, it's do or die time for Pauline coming up as she defends finalist points at the Marseille challenger. Maybe a few weeks off until then will be enough recovery time. Too bad to see her in this...

Re: FO 1R: Oudin d Paszek 6-4 6-3

Hopefully Tamira loses early at all the grass events and falls far from the top 100.

Re: RG 1st round: Karolina Wozniacka vs Laura Robson.WWW?

Court is playing slow with cold and damp conditions. That's good for Caroline. Laura can easily error herself into a loss. Yes, Caroline is making a lot of errors these days but I expect her to clean...

Re: A New Venus Williams

Even Venus of last season would win this match. Something's changed this season. Struggles in basically every win, and has no shot at anyone in the top 20 right now.

Re: A New Venus Williams

There's nothing she can do at this stage. Her declining physical condition caused by her illness and numerous injuries has taken away most of her athleticism and power. The back injury is/has taken...

Re: Is Venus tarnishing her legacy?

Yes. He didn't try to adapt to the new, baseline-oriented power game. The game passed him by.

The fact the USO and Wimbledon were slowed down so much hasn't helped players like Venus, either.

Re: Is Venus tarnishing her legacy?

Reminds me of Michael Chang. A lot of people 25 and under only remember him being an underpowered, weaponless pusher with limited ability and not that he won a Roland Garros at such a young age.

Re: RG R1: Ula Radwanska def. [30] Venus Williams 7-6(5) 6-7(4) 6-4

Venus fought very very hard, but her game is totally...different at this point. Maybe or maybe not it's the back issue, but she lacks pop in her game all-around now, especially the serve. The spark...

Re: Big Three get BIGGER.

Azarenka is still better than Maria is. Maria gets destroyed by Serena whenever they play, and Vika is competitive in almost all of the matches and won in Doha.

Re: Masha:the best active clay court player

Wozniacki is too much of a puffballer to be a good clay player. And she can't move on it.

I agree with you about comparing Soderling to Maria on clay. Neither one of them are real clay court...

Goes to show that there are not many good WTA clay court players. Actually, it's pretty embarrassing.

Re: Katowice R1: Lino def. Robson 57 76(7) 61 saving MP

It's not that bad a loss. The way better clay court player won. I would have been more embarrassed for LDL had she lost.

Re: XWTA IW PM 1k DREAM 3R: [19]Klara Zakopalova def [12]Dominika Cibulkova 6-4 7-5

Clay is really Domi's surface so we'll see if she can start her season there.

Great to see Kookie doing well here, she's such a talented player. Hopefully she can win her next match too! :yeah:

Re: Most Under-rated players on this forum

Errani is the obvious answer, but in a way, I don't know how underrated she is. More like people just hate the way she plays :lol:

Vika is incredibly underrated on this forum and in general in...

Luckily for Coco, although she's done essentially nothing since last summer, she still has a few more weeks to go to save herself. Unfortunately for Coco, she doesn't look capable of making it...
