Serena, Henin, Sharapova, and Venus.
I mean, even if Serena leads 5/2 against Sharapova, can someone here tell me who is gooing to win if they meet in a GS final? Don't think so.
Same thing for Henin vs Venus, Venus lead 7/2, but there is absolutely no guarantee Venus will win if they face each other in a GS final.
Between all 4 it's always the one who is more focus mentally who will win.
So I don't think anyone here can predict a win before they face each other. What about you?

Depends on surfaces, Venus-Sharapova on grass, I will predict Venus.
Henin- all 3 on clay, Henin will win.

Great thread:rolleyes:
Why can't you accept the fact that Serena is 10 times a better player than Maria:help:
Serena always beat Sharapova easily

Why just don't you go away, like I said, you can say everything you want, but Sharapova beat Serena, and Serena was still 100000000 a better player than her in Wimbledon final, so what I'm saying is true, what you're saying:help:

Yeah me too, I'll give edge to Henin on clay.

Of coursee...but it tells us something about the odds. Maria probably has a better shot against Serena on grass than on hardcourts, better shot against Venus and Justine on hardcourts..

Nobody says it's gonna be a double-bagel, but Maria certainly is at a disadvantage.

OK let's analyse Maria's wins over Serena

Wimbledon final 2004
Wimbledon was Serena's 5th tournament since her comeback
Still I'm giving you this one! Maria played some good tennis there

About Maria's other win over Serena (YEC 2004)
Serena couldn't serve and play correctly because she had an abdominal injury. She still led 40 in the third:help:
You can count it as a win if you want but Serena would have won comfortably is she hasn't been severely injured

Since Serena has won 4 times in a row against Maria including several 61 and 62 demolitions:drool:

Does this thread have a point or do you just wanna talk about Maria with the big girls?

Firstly, Henin is retired so no need to bring her into it.

Secondly, of course there is no way to tell who will definetely win a match, but the H2H indicates Serena is a STRONG favourite against Sharapova anytime they play on any surface, any round. Even more so than she would be against other top players. She just has a mental edge over Maria and I'm not sure Maria can handle that. So yes, the H2H does matter, Serena is in Maria's head.

h2h will show potential for winner, Venus is more likely to lose to Penneta than she is to lose to ElenaD even if Elena is heaps better than penneta.

Don't get even start with injuries, during Wimbledon it was Serena's 5th tournament, but she was in final, she beat Mauresmo and slapped Capriati on her way, stop with all your excuses :rolleyes:
And I don't care Serena beat Maria 4 times in a row, Henin slapped Serena 3 times in a row, then Serena murdered her, it's all about confidence between them, if you don't get it, I can't do anything for u.
And, I remember Henin beat Sharapova 4 times in a row before Maria beats her in straights during US Open final, it's all about confidence like I said.:shrug:

If Maria was leading the H2H against Serena 5-2 , you would be singing a different tune.

Just like you were when you said in some other thread how Maria lead H2H against Venus and therefore was a better hardcourt player than Venus.

Wrong, cause I know even if Serena leads 5/2, to a point near, Serena only lead 4/3. A lot of matches where in Maria's hands. And I'm not talking about Maria, about Henin too, to a point near, Henin is the one who lead 7/6 in H2H.

It's not a question of Maria being confident against Serena. If Serena plays to her ability in a Slam especially, it doesnt matter if Maria is feeling confident or not. She'll just get blown away.

There is nothing in Maria's game that can better Serena's game.

So now you dont give importance to H2H as Maria has losing H2H against Serena?

Then what happened when you were posting posts like these -

Why are you rolling Maria, she is the only one(except Venus) who beat Serena in GS final:worship:
About Venus H2H against Maria, you can cry because Venus has no chances ot beat Maria on hardcourts.:
Venus is actually 2-2 against Serena on hard since after 2003. While she is 0-3 against Pova on hard.
My point exactly.
:lol::lol:
Mine Sharapova vs Venus 3/2
Sharapova vs Jankovic 4/1
Change your mind, did ya? :haha: :rolls:

:worship:.

play your game or don't, but you can't have it both ways.

***

Venus needs to play a VERY solid match to beat Maria on hard because Maria is very consistent off the ground and won't let herself go down with the opponent. Well not that down.

i hate to use injuries but when your opponent play the same level throughout the match, you can't bring it, i mean, if she wasn't really she shouldn't have played.

Now when Serena has obviously a hard time keeping it up and serving, it's a bit different.

That said Maria won fair and square.
She did very well at W in 2004, very nice breakthrough. :worship:

What a moron Mashafan is - so tactless and brainless that I feel too sympathetic to be cruel...
