Golovin or Sharapova?

Who do you prefer?
And who do you think is the most talented and get more title?

I think Maria Sharapova.

i haven't seen Golovin play, but imo her run at the Australian Open and Paris is much better than some of the things Maria has done. I'm sure Golovin has beaten better players than Maria has

I saw them both at Junior Wimbledon in 2002... and back then I knew that they'd both be something special. God, I'm good at talent-spotting

Right now, Maria is probably ahead game-wise (though obviously I haven't seen Tati play for nearly two years), but she's older. As impressive as Tati's recent runs have been, she's also had a lot of luck. I have no idea who will turn out better... they're both so talented, it's a question of who gets the most out of it.

Tatiana did face many walkerovers although the win vs. Elena was good.

i havent seen tati play but up to this stage going on results and who is challenging the top players more i would say masha, having said that tati hasnt played many top top players so its kind of hard to tell. but tati has had some luck. i guess to look at it another way is that tati has had more opportunities than masha with the french open WC's etc but im not really sure who is better since i havent seen tati play, but masha is very talented and for someone to get the results that tati is getting at her age they also have to be quite talented.tati is one of the juniors i want to follow through to the end of her career, also sharapova, krajicek and vaidisova. these 4 players imo are all going to be very good and are all extremely talented.

Really? Who?


But anyway, I haven't seen this other girl play. But I have been very impressed with Maria.

Don't know Maria quite well. But she has about 1 more year of experience on the tour than Tatiana.
I've seen Tatiana play today against Elena Dementieva. Most of the time the quality of the game was not very good if you compare it to the match of Mary against Bovina (the service of Dementieva makes me feel not very comfortable, it is so weak sometimes).
However what's impressive is how she handled all the events pretty well during the last weeks. Ok she is lucky somehow with the draw, injuries, etc...But you have to be experienced to do a good match after all that. She did not play a single complete mathc before this one, not sure it's easy to play a good game.
Seeing that match I thought that she would fail to convert the advantage she had and would lose in a 3rd set, just like it happens most of the time. But she closed it in 2 sets just like a top ten can do.
Eventually I noticed that she seems to be very consistent with her strokes. I've seen long rallies and that is Elena that made the error the first. She seemed not to use power all the time just like many girls do at her age.

i have no idea, but i just read this on yahoo tennis website:

"Golovin, 16, advanced to her first semifinal. She beat her first top-10 player in only her 11th career WTA Tour main draw singles match. Serena Williams holds the record as quickest to defeat a top-10 player in only her third tour match.

Golovin also is the lowest-ranked player, at No. 135, to reach a Tier I or Tier II semifinal since Williams, then ranked No. 304, made it to the 1997 Chicago semifinals."

no one is saying that tatiana will be the next serena williams but it's a great achievement nonetheless.
