Re: Which world #5 is the best player at her peak? Hantuchova, Chakvetadze or Kerber?

Kerber's style, even if effective, is just hideous. And she's just not able to produce this kind of tennis



(until 6-0 2-0 of course )

But peak Kerber is certainly mentally stronger than peak Hantuchova. Well I guess, Kerber hasn't won a title near as big as Indian Wells, which Hantuchova has won twice And she hasn't defeated a player as good as Justine Henin in a GS 7-6 in the third.


Edit: Kerber lost in straight sets to Yakimova last year, she's done for me

Kerber, for peak level.
Hantuchova, for technique/prettiest strokes.

What a terrible HLs from the 1st two sets

It's hard for me to choose between Angie and Anna.

To be honest I don't even remember it, it's been like 2 years since I first/last watched the highlights of the not-to-be-mentioned match, but I thought Daniela was playing some really good tennis, not taking stupid risks like she always does and having the timing of a swiss watch.

probably dani cause when everything is clicking she has enough weapons to compensate her subpar movement and can generally win fast enough not to have the time to choke (the vid posted is not a good example tho )

I know, the only top player she's ever defeated after giving her a bagel is Elena Bovina

Re: Which world #5 is the best player at her peak? Hantuchova, Chakvetadze or Kerber?

Hantuchova hits a clean ball but what else can she do? Whenever she faces one of the big guns playing well, she's thoroughly outclassed. At least Chackvetadze and Kerber have an atypical game that can cause some problems.

I love Anna, but the answer is Kerber.

In case anyone needs a refresher course on Peak Chakvetadze.

Hantuchova once lost to Melanie Gloria, who wasn't even ranked in the top 1000. Fail.

Re: Which world #5 is the best player at her peak? Hantuchova, Chakvetadze or Kerber?

Probably Kerber. Although we have to see if this year was just an anomaly or not.

Chakvetadze's and Hantucova's 07 and 02 seasons respectively were very much career anomalies. Outside of those years, only Hantuchova managed to knock (briefly) on the door of the top 10 again in her 11 year career. She was pretty much a punchbag for the elite for the majority of her career. And I like Chaky, but her string of results from Moscow 06 - USO 07 was definitely an overachievement.

It says so much about Hantuchova that apparently the best match of her career is the one she ended up losing.

It's Kerber, quite easily.
