Poll: Who’ll Win More Wimbledons, Novak Djokovic Or Petra Kvitova?

For the second time following 2011, the tandem of Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitova won Wimbledon titles together last weekend.

Now that they each have two titles, who’ll finish with more Wimbledons?

Kvitova is the youngster at just 24, and has fewer threats to deal with these days on the WTA other than the aging Williams sisters and perhaps Sabine Lisicki, a grass specialist herself. But Kvitova hasn’t been the model of consistency that Djokovic has.

The Serb’s made the Wimbledon finals the last three of the last four years and he has made the finals at 12 of his last 16 Slams.

And with Roger Federer approaching 33, Rafael Nadal struggling on grass and Andy Murray still trying to adjust to life as a Wimbledon champion, maybe Djokovic will continue to dominate on the grass for years to come. However, grass isn’t his best surface and Djokovic’s priorities will soon change as a family man.

RZ Says:

I say Kvitova because she’s younger, probably hasn’t hit her peak yet, and doesn’t have as much competition on grass. She’s probably the best grass court player on the women’s tour but just needs to find consistency. I think her 2nd slam will give her that mental edge to become more consistent.

Djokovic is probably at his peak now and has tougher competition on grass (Murray, Federer, and likely Dmitrov, Raonic, and Kyrgios in the future) that will make it more difficult for him to win future titles than it will be for Kvitova.


jane Says:

i have to day, tennis-x staff rock at finding the most bizarre / obscure photos of the tennis players for their articles. i hadn’t seen the cricket one of nole before, nor have i ever seen this rowing one. love this last one.

i’d agree with RZ’s comment that petra will likely win more for the reasons s/he listed here: age & competition/depth of field.


jane Says:

*say (not day)


skeezer Says:

jane,
“i have to day..”
But…. do u have tomorrow?
Lol ..sorry, but u left a rare opening there and I could not resist ;)

Yes good thing about Tennis X like it or not they manage to find little jewels here and there with Tennis related news,.


jane Says:

i sure hope i have tomorrow skeezer… :)


Michael Says:

I think both Kvitova and Novak will have chances to mutiply their slam count at Wimbledon. Novak who was struggling in Grass courts early in his career is today finding it as one of his favourite surface. He has honed his skills over the years on this surface adjusting his game to suit Grass and importantly has been a consistent performer right since 2010 making atleast the semis. It is hard to predict the future, but it seems Novak has some ammunition left to amass more titles.


Hippy Chic Says:

I would say Petra but only just,although i disagree with RZ in that the competition is now getting better on the womens side,Serenas not the player she was,but Halep is likely going to be a stronge force IMO,and Bouchard ran out of steam for the final but will only get better,theres plenty of other young girls coming through too making some noise,it might sound silly as he has two wimbledon titles, but i think Novak could/will amass more GS on HCs,as thats where his game is better suited,i believe Andy and Roger have games that are better suited to grass….


Colin Says:

Of all the tennis players on the face of the Earth, Petra Kvitova is the last one we should make predictions about!

I very much hope this has been a watershed for her, and that she’ll play like this more often, but who knows? Not you or I, not Petra’s super-patient coach, not Petra herself. Nobody.


FedExpress Says:

The next thread will be: can nole break feds GS record?


Peep Says:

Petras nice but radek broke her heart


Giles Says:

Come on Argentina! Show your magic Messi!
Argentina winning the World Cup will certainly put a smile or two on Delpo’s face!


RZ Says:

@Hippy Chic – I agree that Bouchard and Halep will come on strong in the coming years, but I still think that Kvitova is and will continue to be a better grass court player.

@Colin – true, but let’s see how she reacts to slam #2. Many top players took a while to get going between slam #1 and #2 but then took off (Pete Sampras comes to mind); but there are others who got #2 and didn’t do much else (Kuznetsova, Kafelnikov)

@Peep – but Petra is the only player to do well after breaking up with Radek!


FedExpress Says:

Come on Germany, beat them, thrash them


jane Says:

true RZ. safin is another who took a long time between #1 and 2 but then just stopped after that. nole had 3 years between his first and second slams, the same as petra and pete.


skeezer Says:

Bam! Germany wins.


courbon Says:

and I won €100 on a bet.You can always count on German efficency.Dankeshen.


Wog boy Says:

As Gary Lineker said:
“Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.”

Courbon, don’t spend all the money on scotch;)


Peep Says:

Boris Becker is one lucky SOB this week with 2big wins


Patson Says:

Ze Germans !

I was rooting for Argentina :(

Congrats Germany …. I’ll go to sleep with a heavy heart today.


courbon Says:

@ Wog Boy: No, I’m rarely drinking scotch these days. I think these German generation is fantastic- and they play great attacking football….
Yeah, Boris must be in the 7th heaven? First Wimby and now this?


Hippy Chic Says:

Patson yeah me too,nice to see a European side win it though?congrats Germany anyway….


Patson Says:

@Hippy Chic

Naaah top football clubs are already in Europe. The last thing we want is a global sport becoming European centric even on the World cup stage. It was nice to see alot of South American teams coming through to the round of 16 though.

Damn, I really wanted Argentina to win. The next World cup is in Russia, and Ze Germans are going to be hot favorites over there as well.

Oh well, I should just go to sleep and forget about it.


Hippy Chic Says:

Patson TBH my dream final wouldve been Brazil v Holand,Argentina was the lesser of the two evils when i came to winning the final,as both sides are rather bid headed IMO,they were actually the four teams that i wouldve predicted getting to the final,England im patriotic dont get me wrong but pftt, WHITEWASHED….
