Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

its off season so lets just embrace it!

two absolute fighters who both had amazing success despite having certain limitations when compared to their biggest rivals - capriati's serve wasn't anywhere near the weapon when compared to Serena, Venus and Lindsay, while maria's athleticism isnt anything compared with serena, venus, henin or kim

HOWEVER they both are multiple grand slam champions, #1 players who showed a lot of heart and fight on the court, as much in defeat as in victory

Personally, I think, peak vs peak on a grand slam stage, its Jennifer in 3 in Melbourne, Paris and New York. Maria in 2 at Wimbledon.

Re: Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

Maria would win. Jennifer wasnt that good, lets be honest. She is to be admired for her great fightback to winning 3 slams against all odds, and she was one of the most precocious 15 years old ever, but other than Serena, post prime Hingis, and the vastly overrated Mary Pierce, she was every top players bitch of both her eras. Some people think she is better than she is due to her rivalry with Serena who she admirably pushed so hard which isnt easy to do obviously, and her amazing U.S Open semi with Seles decades ago as a precocious 15 year old, but other than those two things she otherwise falls well short in the realm of any player with 3 or more slams. 3 things really stand out with Capriati:

1. Her astonishingly poor H2H records vs top players for a 3 slam winner as mentioned.

2. Her extremly low winner tallies vs top players, especialy for someone we are told is supposed to be this huge "power" player. Against Venus she often played matches with only 4 winners. Against Elena Dementieva of all people she got outwinnered 41-11 in her last U.S Open semifinal. Against Davenport she usually had only single digit winners. And so on.

3. Her shocking lack of overall success for a 3 slam winner. Will we ever see a 3 slam winner who wins only 14 tournaments ever again. A 3 slam winner with no Wimbledon, U.S Open, or WTA Championship finals. A 3 slam winner with only 3 slam finals, and only 2 years ended ranked higher than #6.


Might she have become the next Chris Evert as she was proclaimed to be on her way to being at 13, 14, 15 with a better support system, better coaching, and without her crazy dad. Who knows. As it is though the best she managed to be is a poor womens Clijsters.

Re: Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

Is the point of all these Peak Maria threads to have her name plastered everywhere so we just get sick of seeing it and, ultimately, her?

Re: Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

Well atleast Mariatards got it right this time. They picked a multi slam champion she could actually win a peak poll against. Capriati is definitely the most accomplished player, other than perhaps Clijsters, who Sharapova would ever win a poll against, so finally a wise move by a Mariatard. Too bad they made the grave mistakes of starting peak threads vs Serena, Venus, Henin, and Hingis before this.

Re: Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

What is peak Capriati anyway?

I think she'd give Maria fits with her aggressive counter-punching, but we've all seen what Peak Maria can do.

Yeah yeah, we get it, your not a fan of jens.


Back to reality now...

Jennifer CAPRIATI fact: hall of famer

Jennifer CAPRIATI fact: won there only match

Jennifer CAPRIATI fact: won an Olympic gold medal and played arguably the toughest times of women's tennis. Maria has a silver and she is playing scrubs who can hit bricks but have no brains. Impressive not . Also she can't beat the only really talented female left I. Women's tennis. Serena, who Jennifer beat 7 times... That's 5 times more than Maria ever has... That's a lot

I don't think CAPRIATI gives a rats ass what u think of her career. She did just fine.


CAPRIATI in 3.

Oh and when was the last time Maria won against Serena? Oh right.... Maybe she should ask Jennifer how it's done...

Next.

Re: Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

Sharapova. It'd be closer than most people seem to think though, especially on hard and clay.

This is peak Capriati in my opinion

Re: Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

And might I add Maria cannot run, she hobbles around the court, much like a tall giraffe in heels, she looks ridiculous and in long rallies she would get outmanoevered by the superior athlete, CAPRIATI was a brick house at her peak and Serena hit harder than Maria at her peak and served better too and Jen still beat peak Serena 7 times. Maria can't even beat a washed up Serena at 31 and ticking... Pretty embarrassing if u ask me. And u think she'd beat Jennifer? Ha. Good one.


Maria has a career slam because she has no one good enough as competition. Jennifer's competition was a lot tougher and she actually played other talented women as good if not better. Maria? She has kirilenko and that pusher wozniacki... That's hardly competitive.

Re: Peak Capriati vs Peak Sharapova

Please stop kissing Martha's arse in every single thread.
Peak Capriati was actually one of very few players able to challenge Peak Serena, unlike the Shrieking Razor who quite often has received pastry from Lord's Bakery.

So Peak Capriati wins.

Dementieva, Jankovic could challenge Serena and couldn't do it vs Masha

Exactly.

I love Jennifer, but she challenged Serena in the same way lesser defenders have been able to. And those players are completely helpless against Maria.

Jennifer also never beat Venus, but Maria has a good record against her.

And you could argue that the Serena who went down in QFs to Capriati isn't as good as the Serena we're seeing now. Not that it matters.
