and Hingis won with a help of Kournikova, Doubles - it's not like mixed where girls can win with a help of Paes or Mirnyi who are making 90% of game

tbh, Nicole's return wasn't great at all, but Anna's serve didn't need much of a challenge, she was a dfs queen.

Anyway, I'll go with Nicole, she had much more power, the variety was on Anna's side, but I don't think it would be enough in today's game.

Nicole could deal harshly with a weak serve though. Maybe she wasn't good at returning medium-fast serves . Take this for example. Elena's serve was mincemeat .

Yes...Anna had such a long career, retiring at age 21.

And she won large doubles titles with several different partners.

Re: Peak Kournikova v. Peak Vaidisova?

Vaidisova. In her 2007 Australian Open semifinal loss to Serena she was outhitting Serena, she had many more winners, just lost since she had way too many errors. This the same Serena who made silly putty out of Maria the next day. Anna would never be capable of that level of power tennis. Nicole's best tennis also took her 2 slam semis in less than one year, and the only reason she wasnt the 2006 French Open finalist is she choked badly when serving for a straight sets win over Kuznetsova in the semis. Kournikova never had a chance to make a slam final and never got to a second slam semi. Not to mention peak Anna was so weak she couldnt even win a freaking tournament.

I feel like Nicole doesn't get enough credit for having 2 GS SFs at 17. Everyone always says she wasn't impressive cause she never won a big title.

I always wonder who would have won the 2007 Australian Open if Nicole was able to beat Serena because 2004 Nicole beat 2004 Maria in an exho. It would have been the first all teenage final in... how long? Who knows. Would have been interesting to see how Nicole would have done or be remembered if she had a Slam under her belt.
