Re: WWW AO Quarterfinal: [1] Serena Williams vs [5] Maria Sharapova

I think the level of play Giorgi produced in the 1st round >> Bencic level vs Sharapova. Aside from the Double faults, Giorgi was playing good offensive tennis and pushing Serena.

Re: Serena: Others Copy My Pre-Match Routine-But won't admit it.

:confused: I read the 'early preparation' comment to be about her and Venus' early take back on their groundstrokes!? Sharapova and Vika both have that early take back on their groundies too:tape:

Re: Peak Petra > Peak Serena

But if my memory serves me correctly, Marian faced Serena twice right after her return form the embolism. I don't think Bartoli ever got to face an in form Serena to make the comparison. Olympic 12'...

Just like Petra did a year before against a motivated Sharapova, who hasnt lost a set during the whole tournament. See no difference. Definitely not the best example.[/QUOTE]

Then we saw something else. Serena did everything possible to come back and she almost did it in the 2nd. But she failed, since she wasnt allowed to do so. Serena can hardly be considered a Wimby...

So the logic is Peak Kvitty beats top 20 player Bouchard 6-3 6-0.. Peak Rena beats multi slam winning Sharapova 6-0 6-1... Hmmmm!!! Both are scary as hell when 'in the zone' but surely Serena serve...

Re: The best athlete in womens tennis ever?

Even Aussie open 07 Rena, probably 15-20 pounds heavier, was still a better athlete than 80% of the draw.

I don't get those who connect athletic ability with fitness... Safarova and Sharapova are...

Re: Does Groundstroke production change over the course of a Career?

Go back and look at Serena winning the US open in 99, and compare her stroke production/technique to her winning the US open this year. Its almost like 2 different players.

I think Venus and...

Re: Strokes of Genius: The Best of the Women

Maria certainly has an arguemnet for best backhand on tour. her cross court is one of the my favs :drool: but Serenas return trumps Shazza.

Re: Halep the best mover on tour?

Best counter puncher yes. Id still say Serena/Vee/Na are more explosive, Jelena mroe agile, but Halep is a nice combination.

Re: Is Li's "power" overrated?

I think the 'illusion' of power is created because she hits such a clean ball. She has some of the smoothest strokes on tour and while she hits with a fair amount of pace shes not on par with the...

Re: 2014 ESPN ESPY Award: Maria Sharapova is the Best Female Tennis Player

Re: Is it fair to say that Ana has the best volley from all top-players?

Id rank Radwanska, Kvitty, Vika above her. Li Na was showing some a pretty impressive net game in 13, but it still feels very mechanical to me.

Re: Who is more technically skilled? Justine Henin or Martina Hingis?

Although this is an exaggeration, i do agree with the overview post!! Henin's 'variety' for me always seemed imposed on her. She was predominantly an agressive baseliner who had a solid slice and...

Re: 2013 Post-UO: Has Serena already eclipsed her 2012 season?

Re: Serena Separates Herself From Her Contemporaries; Lands 2 Feet Firm in GOAT Deba

I dont get the 'Serena barely beat a 29 year old Steffi 7-5' arguement. Serena was 17 herself, they were both far from there Peaks!! Serena more so!! I hate the comparisons of generations,...
