    I agree about racket technology. Its created a generation of power hitters because its easier to hit hard. But to be a true power player you have to harness it and do it consistently and thats what pierce davenport seles capriati williams sisters justine and kim did. If pierce was hitting that hard in 94 with a wilson pro staff can you imagine how hard she might hit the ball with one of these hollow frames?!

    Nothing beats Pierce’s generation – late 80s to mid-90s. The most talented, lots of style, complete in technique and tactics of tennis, well-rounded, great point execution, power but work on the ball. And all of this was done with a more minimal base – with what should be the maximum amount of racquet and string technology. That is why the best matches come from this generation, and why it was the peak of modern tennis. Pierce is a great example of this generation and a good ambassador of it.

    no one hits the ball cleaner than pierce. the sound of the ball off her racket was insane

    Pierce’s forehand is CRAZY powerful. :O

  • By cupidslover3, July 22, 2013 @ 12:56 pm

    No-one can crack a forehand like Pierce when she winds up!

    How Pierce celebrates this victory is embarrassing. Anyway, nice video 😉

    Mariana Alves made the right call, the ball was already past Sharapova. People call her a bitch but she’s simply enforcing the rules without apology. Serena way over reacted at the Us open and her behaviour was disgusting for someone with such influence on the next generation of tennis players. I’m glad she forfitted her match. She deserved to be thrown off court!

    Pierce killed the ball in this match, if only she was more consistent and played this well more often! She’d have another slam to her name easily.

    doubt about that, both were great player with great strokes, but pierce is too much inconsisten than sharapova..

    pierce is amaziin

  • By volvariella, July 22, 2013 @ 4:30 pm

    And nowadays without consistent serve, Pierce or Serena-like player would kill Maria something like 6-0, 6-1.

  • By volvariella, July 22, 2013 @ 5:20 pm

    Pierce murders every ball like Serena, but the difference is… she looks elegant.

  • By beavertown2006, July 22, 2013 @ 6:08 pm

    I like Pierce forehand

  • By iMidnightSkies, July 22, 2013 @ 6:38 pm

    At 6:11 Sharapova is wrong the umpire made the correct decision. The ball was already past Maria when the out call was made.

    I was at this match, so glad Mary won so we didn’t have to hear Ms. “I sound like I’m gettting raped on the court” anymore!!!!!
