Who was more of a fluke/Who was better?: Ana Ivanovic or Anastasia Myskina?

Battle of the one-time GS/French Open champs

Don't pit them against each other though. They existed in different eras.

EDIT: I misspelled Myskina's name in the poll. How do I change it? (The fucking vampire is gonna fucking get me.)

EDIT2: Seems like I worded the question wrong but I still like the comparison of the two players. Who was the better player?

1. They weren't different eras
2. Ivanovic was not a fluke. She made 3 slam finals... how is that a fluke

Re: Who was more of a fluke: Ana Ivanovic or Anastasia Myskina?

Nasty beat better people to win her slam.

She won it, despite what TF says.


Ana had less competition but she was legitimate for a longer period. I say neither, but with Justines retirement Ana's slam was less deserved.

Re: Who was more of a fluke: Ana Ivanovic or Anastasia Myskina?

Neither was a fluke. Last 3 years we had 3 flukes at least, but Ana and Nastya aren't close to being a fluke

Re: Who was more of a fluke: Ana Ivanovic or Anastasia Myskina?

Three slam finals and a slam semi in the span of 13 months, which also included titles in Indian Wells, Los Angeles, Lux and the world #1 ranking.....that is not a fluke.

Re: Who was more of a fluke: Ana Ivanovic or Anastasia Myskina?

A fluke is when something completely unexpected and unforeseen happens which turns out to be a one-off event.

Ivanovic was the #2 seed and the previous year's finalist (expectation was there) and had reached 1 other GS final (not a one-off).

Thanks.

Re: Who was more of a fluke: Ana Ivanovic or Anastasia Myskina?

in comparison with the likes of Sabatini, Conchita-Martinez and Novotna , they are both flukes.

But in reality , they pretty much deserved one Major title , there are much weaker 1 Slam winners in WTA history

Ivanovic is a much better player than Conchita Martinez, just way less consistent.

Ivanovic was much better player just during her 2 peak years , but career wise she is not even close ..

Re: Who was more of a fluke: Ana Ivanovic or Anastasia Myskina?

None of them. Especially not Ivanovic. She won RG 2008, has 2 GS finals and 11 WTA titles. FED cup final, and 25 years. She has so much more to say in tennis in a years to come.
