Re: Who is greater, Ana Ivanovic or Victoria Azarenka?

Slam win, 3 slam finals, 3 tier one's, and 12 tittles.

I'am VERY happy for Vika, but as of right now, Ana has the edge. This question needs to be revisisted at the end of the year.
Vika will probably surpass Ana by then. I definitely don't see her melting down like Ana did.

Ana: #1 (12 weeks), 3 GS Finals (1 title) and leading H2H 2-1
Vika: #1 (1st week), GS Final (1 title) and losing H2H 1-2

So far, Ana

Re: Who is greater, Ana Ivanovic or Victoria Azarenka?

beating 2 grand slams champions on a way to a slam >>> easiest draw to a slam ever, the 2 more finals aren't relavant if the actual slam is shadowed.

It's not about the names, it's more bout how her opponents played. Jankovic played amazing in the sf, simply amazing. Much better than Radwanska, Clijsters, Barthel etc.

Re: Who is greater, Ana Ivanovic or Victoria Azarenka?

Azarenka reach #1 and first GS title like extreme surface specialist - (almost) everything notable which she ever won so far coming from MEDIUM FAST HC: AO2012, Miami 2009 and 2011 (plus two AO warm-up events Brisbane and Sydney) and she is also arguable elite indoors player (played YEC final, won Moscow and couple indoors MM, plus Madrid indoors-clay final). Everything else is shockingly mediocre even for random TOP10 player career achievements standards (only notable: Wimbledon and USO SF and just one HC-fast tier-II title).

On other hand Ana Ivanovic (on her best) is much more all-round player. Ana played on clay two back-to-back RG finals winning one title (plus one tier-I title), on medium fast HC she played two back-to-back IW finals and won one title and also reach once AO final, on HC-fast surface Ivanovic is one season overall winner of USO series and she won several HC-fast tier-I and tier-II titles, on grass played Wimbledon SF and she is also more than good at indoors winning already 5 titles so far.

I expecting from Vika to continue to produce some great results in next 2 months, but Im very curious what will happen with her when hers favorite medium fast HC season will finish after March. Speaking about rankings Vika is ahead Kvitova about 1000 points and Petra has to defend 500 already during first week of February. But Petra after Paris indoors last year have pathetic February-March achievements, so no big surprise if she overtake Azarenka already in next 12 weeks (number of Ivanovic weeks at #1).

Re: Who is greater, Ana Ivanovic or Victoria Azarenka?

The entire gist of your post is wrong. Azarenka is a better player across all surfaces and possesses far more versatility than Ivanovic on all of them.

Time will tell currently Ana still has a better resume than Vika.
But in the future who knows?

..
Ivanovic was number 1 for 1 or 2 weeks, Henin still had a lead over her until July or August 2008.

I've been wanting for Vika to slay VIP again RG-style after that terrible choke in Cincinnati.

I know. It's not that Marbella was a fluke or something.

There's nothing that fundamentally makes Ivanovic a better claycourter.

Now there isn't anything that makes her good on any surface, but please... Wait, why am I explaining this?

Never mind.

OK. Vika is a much better player, versatile and better on all surfaces, just like all other players from her generation. Period.

Can't wait for Putintseva to take versatility to a new level.
