Re: Who Is Greater?: Clijsters vs. Sharapova

Career Slam >>>>> 4 Slams without Wimbledon and French Open

not reaching even Final at Wimbledon is making Clijsters stay far below Masha in any possible rankings

Re: Who Is Greater?: Clijsters vs. Sharapova

It really is no comparison. Kim was a great person who was not just respected but well liked on tour and among her peers, despite her success, something Sharapova couldn't even dream of.

She made her way to the top solely as a tennis player, not as an advertising billboard who's willing to sell out to the highest bidder.. And coming back after childbirth and getting these kinds of results is way bigger than anything Sharapova has ever done.

As a complete package Kim is superior in every way, a true role model for young players.

Off season yet?

I think they are close at this point. Still I'd pick Kim. May be Maria can raise her title counts

In this logic, every player must be greater than her

So Kim being, in your opinion (let's note that you know neither personally), being a nicer person makes her the greater player.

Peak GM.

Re: Who Is Greater?: Clijsters vs. Sharapova

Kim by far. And the Career slam argument is so weak these days. Kim actually defended a slam and also managed to win 2 slams in a row. Two things Maria never did and this is more important than winning the 4 slams these days, as there are no surface specialists anyway, IMO.

Plus Kim leads almost all the stats.

It's one aspect but it shows off character. She managed to be successful without being a total bully which, imo, disqualifies Sharapova as role model for younger players.

That she supposedly can't be friends with any of her peers without it having an effect on her tennis shows how weak minded she is for needing such a crutch.

And wtf does endorsements have to do with how you are rating as a tennis player? Maria got to the top of tennis by being bloody good at it, not because she earns loads of money off court.

Except for Slams won (where they are tied and CGS gets the edge), Career winning % and Tier I titles won.

I forgot about doubles, Kim really was a fantastic doubles player. Kim and Ai

When you add doubles it's really no contest

Like I said. CGS gets the edge in some eyes. For me, defending a slam and winning 2 in a row looks more impressive than winning one every 2 years (or more).

For the rest, most stats are stupid to compare anyway as Kim's career has been quite short and much disturbed by injuries and her first retirement. She played less than Maria. And the part where she played a lot was in a much stronger era.
