Who wins this: Peak Petrova or Peak Stosur?

So, who wins this?
I believe it's much closer than one would think. Both of them are notorious for being huge underachievers, but both of them are able to dismantle almost anyone's game when at their peak. Especially on clay, though their biggest success came on hard.

H2H is 6-3 in favour of Nadia, though it is 1-0 for Stosur on clay (in 2012 - several years after the monstrous 2006 Nadia's clay season), 1-1 on grass and 5-1 on hard, though two of these matches finished with a tiebreak in the 3rd set and three of Nadia's wins came long before Sam developed her games for singles matches.

Sam's forehand to Nadia's backhand, serve to serve and error to error when it gets tough - who wins this?

How can you call someone, who has lost 12 out of 15 finals, an overachiever?

Re: Who wins this: Peak Petrova or Peak Stosur?

Petrova, period.

Okay, maybe Sam may trouble Petrova more on clay, but PEAK Petrova still can beat her.

Re: Who wins this: Peak Petrova or Peak Stosur?

I've seen peak Petrova and she was amazing, but she wasn't near as ferocious as peak Sam on the Charleston final Anyway, I think Sam would win in 3 on clay, Nadia would win in 3 on hardcourts and in 2 on grass.

Ivanovic and Errani fans giving more importance to MM titles than to Grand Slams, Premier titles, and ranking, how surprising.

Re: Who wins this: Peak Petrova or Peak Stosur?

Why are people bringing up her underachievement, this is meant to be Peak Stosur it does not bring it 'bad mentality' or has anything to do with her titles, it is to do with her performance.

Anyway Stosur on clay, Petrova on hard and grass.

Re: Who wins this: Peak Petrova or Peak Stosur?

Arguably Sam is at her peak now. And still struggles to beat older Nadia.
On grass there is no question it's Petrova on hard Nadia should take it. Clay is a slight leveller but Peak Nadia beat Henin on clay. Peak Stosur doesn't do that. Petrova all the way.

Basically serve Petrova>>Stosur, backhand Petrova>>>>>>Stosur, forehand Stosur>>>>Petrova, volley Petrova>>>>>>>>>>>Stosur, footwork Petrova>>>>>Stosur, mentality Stosur>>Petrova, so basically Petrova all over.
