Is it safe to say that sharapova has reach AO 2008 form?

by consensus that was considered her 'peak', so do you think her current form matches that?

and if not, what about USO 2006?

No. Until she shows more variety on court as she showed in 2008 AO she hasn't reached that form yet.

Her footwork however I believe is better this year than in 2008 but all the other elements of her game are not 2008 material yet.

still though, only 5 games dropped in 4 matches

and I don't think venus counts as a 'scrub' even though she's obviously nowhere near her best, I would say she's better than some of the top 10 right now (*cough* stosur *cough*)

Re: Is it safe to say that sharapova has reach AO 2008 form?

You all have to stop.
She is playing well, nobody can deny it.
Vika and Serena didn't have better opponents.
Still you shouldn't hype her that much. Wait until she plays against Radwanska. And, regardless from her form, she can't beat Serena.
Just let her play.

She has surpassed it. So when she loses, it's safe to say that Peak Sharapova is overrated.

Re: Is it safe to say that sharapova has reach AO 2008 form?

This is def her best performance score-wise, but we won't really know until the end of the tournament. Certainly if she made it to the Final and won---especially if it was against Serena---then it would be safe to say at that point that this is her best form ever.

Honestly she's past peak 2008 tbh. Still not enough to beat way-past-peak Serena in 2013 (considering her peak was back in 2002-03)
