Peak Shrley Fry vs Peak Maria Sharapova

Both have a career slam. Both won only 4 slams. Who has the edge with both playing their best. Of note Fry at her career peak won 3 grand slams in a row. Maria's shortest time frame between slams is 17 months.

Re: Peak Shrley Fry vs Peak Maria Sharapova

Again you're still trying to throw shades at Sharapova. First Maria's career ain't over so she may finish with more than 4 slams. Secondly, Fry played in a era where tennis wasn't strong and that the GS surfaces were omly grass and clay.

What is the shame in being compared to Shirley Fry. Shirley Fry is a great player who like Maria won all 4 slams, like Maria holds 4 slam titles, and who to win her slams beat legendary opponents such as Louise Brough and Althea Gibson. Fry at her peak was also a dominant player who won 3 slams in a row, she had excellent longevity and was near the top of the game and making slam finals over a whole decade. She was equally proficient from both net and backcourt, and was an excellent defender who could also attack. She also was one of the great doubles players. If anything it is an honor for Maria to be deemed worthy of the comparision.

As for Fry playing in a weak era her era was one that included Connolly, Brough, Osborne Du Pont, Hart, Gibson, hardly weak.

That's very debatable, but it's impossible to imagine how they would do h2h anyway because in which era is this match supposed to take place? In Fry's or in Sharapova's? Seems logical to assume that in the 50's playing with the equipment of that time that Fry would have won and that today playing with todays sticks that Maria would win. Forehand27 doesn't strike me as exactly the biggest Sharapova fan on the planet, but he/she knows his/her tennis history, that's for sure.

Re: Peak Shrley Fry vs Peak Maria Sharapova

99% of TF haven't seen a single match of SFI.

What is the reason of opening this idiotic thread? I will understand it if you opened a thread to compare achievements , but peak vs peak is pure B.S.

Well deserved Bad Rep

Re: Peak Shrley Fry vs Peak Maria Sharapova

Ha, ha!! Truth hurts. Three consecutive majors, including the Wimbledon-U.S. Open back-to-back and a slam final win over Althea Gibson. Oh, and that little thing called a career Grand Slam in doubles as well.

Re: Peak Shrley Fry vs Peak Maria Sharapova

Wow tied 8 to 8, even though most people here dont even have a clue who Fry is. Fry must really be the better player peak to peak in that case.

Her winning 3 slams in a row, beating the great Althea Gibson just after her first slam win and just before her total dominance of the womens game in straight sets in 2 slam finals in a row, and her amazing success in all of singles, doubles, and mixed doubles should pretty much the seal the deal anyway though.

Re: Peak Shrley Fry vs Peak Maria Sharapova

She also took Mo to three sets in a US Open also, I think. Wimbledon and the US Open were all that in the 50s, and she won them back-to-back. Truly impressive player.

Re: Peak Shrley Fry vs Peak Maria Sharapova

^^ This thread is hilarious. When your girl wins Wimbledon and the U.S. Open back to back, then maybe she has a shot against Shirley Fry, but until then, it's not really a contest.

"back to back" slams are pure BS , unless it's 4 in a row . It's not even close to winning CGS on 4 different surfaces compared to 2 different surfaces

Stefan Edberg and Ivan Lendl never won back to back Slams , but who cares about this invented by some TF-trolls useless achievement

hehehe, This thread is indeed hilarious, Ninja granny vs shrieking skinny young girl


And no, winning back to back Slam, especially in the same year is not BS. It's a remarkable feat to achieve since naturally most players would be overwhelmed with all the fame, press, parties and distraction after winning a Slam so they can't be focused on the next Slam and a let down would be happen inevitably.


Futhermore, winning a Slam takes a lot out of a player. Most players, except the greats would be so exhausted physically and mentally, so to bring out another god-like performance for the next Slam would be too much to ask. The new Slam winners will be the target for everyone at the very next Slam. Just look at what happened to Ivanovic, Kuzy, Myskina, Kvitova, Na, Sam, Francesca, etc... after they won their first Slam. Even great players like Justine, Kim couldn't win 2 Slams back to back in the same year ( they won the USO and AO back to back, but noticed this 2 Slams has an off season break in between so they were able to recharge their batteries).
