In terms of natural tennis talent, Anna is ahead of these 2 imo. Angie is the most gifted athlete for sure.

Peak Kerber(okay, Wozniacki is not a real top player)

In peak form, when the brain doesn't get in the way, Daniela would bury Anna or Angie. However, when it comes to Daniela, the brain always gets in the way eventually, so then my vote would be on Angie. Chak shows sparks of brilliance but there isn't enough there for her to get my vote.

I dont believe so... no.

Hantuchova had a point boost from winning IW that year which helped her situation out even further. In addition in 02 Hantuchova did not get to a slam SF (it would take until the 08 AO and I think alot of us can agree that slam was a fluke)

In comparison Kerber got to a SF this year in addition to getting to a SF last year (which seemed to be a fluke at the time... until she repeated it again at W this year).

As Woz has shown, a player can get a high rank from winning or getting deep in the minor tournies while being lackluster in the slams.

Kerber did well in both non slams and slams this year.... which makes her 5 rank much less questionable.

She's a freaking whale. Hantuchova on the other hand never gets tired, she's by far the fittest of the 3

Kerber is probably the best mover out of her crop.... she is certaintly one of the best movers currently on tour.

She also hits a mean ball.... her back of the court game is arguably the strongest of the three.

Kerber's weakness is her abysmal second serve.

As long as she learns to beef that shot up... she should be around in the top 10 for quite some time (barring injury or something similar).

That she has done as much as she has with such an attackable serve proves how good the rest of her game must be.

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

Can't believe I've gone from her #1 Hater to one of her biggest defenders in a few months, but Kerber wins this easily. I think we haven't quite seen Peak Kerber yet anyway, but even so, 2012 Kerber wins this battle for sure.

"Peak Hantuchova" being an elite ballbasher really is such a lazy misconception. Her tennis was very aesthetically-pleasing when she was at her best, but it was NEVER EVER overwhelmingly explosively powerful. She's underachieved in the sense that her lows are lower than they should be, but her peak level was always a solid low top 10 level.

"Peak" Chakvetadze is dead last of this triage.

Even AMG beat Wozniacki on clay this year

Anyways Chak was my favorite to watch but Kerber is the right answer.

I felt the same way.

For me it was because her serve was so bad (atleast the 2nd serve). I thought to myself, how in the world is this girl doing so good with a leftie Hingis speed serve?

But 2012 showed me how good she can be. The rest of her game is very nice to watch and very competent.

That's because she didn't even get far enough to play against her.
