Don't they look similar, dress similar and play similar to a casual TV observer?
Yes, they do. Ah, but Sharapova is just that little bit prettier, imo.
They are both Bollitierri products.
Why isn't Vaidisova marketed better then?
Why is this important?
BTW, she is only #15 or so in the rankings but just 17 years old. She will win and with that there will be fame. Great players don't need marketing. Their rackets do the talking.
Sharapova is a lot tougher mentally than Vaidisova. I remember watching Vaidisova last year fall apart during a match when things aren't going her way. If NV can keep her temper in check, she has the potential to equal MS, if not exceed her.
yeah, vaidisova let her temper get the best of her at last year's US open and hit a ball into the stands, which brought on a bunch of boo's. i dont like her just cuz of that.
I got to disagree. I really don't find sharapova that attrictive. I think Vadisova is better looking.
To each his own.
What are the natural colors of their hair I wonder?:mrgreen:
I agree that to the casual fan their games and appearance are quite similar. However, I see Vaidisova's game to be more modelled after the Williams' sisters (Serena in particular) what with the early take back on groundies and open stanced backhand.
Hmmm, Just wait till Vaidasova wins a grand slam. She'll be equally if not more hyped than Sharapova. After all Sharapova wasn't huge before her breakthrough at SW19.
I am not so sure. She doesn't seem to have the same glam factor as Sharapova.
I think Vaidisova is much more atractive than Sharapova.... and I pressume she's more fun too
smoke and mirrors. imho.
Don't presume her to be more fun. I was around her at the Advanta last November and she is not warm and friendly. However, her coach/stepfather is really really nice. He let me hold and swing her racquet and answered all my questions about it. She was one b****.
Never will more hyped than Sharapova.
Sharapova has a regal bearing and a foxy face. Vaidisova's quite plain, although good looking. Her shoulders are too narrow for her height. She doesn't carry herself with the same elegance, she's a bit ungainly.
Talk to you in 3 years, when Vaidisova will be No 1, but not in advertising. Remember this conversation.
Vaidisova beat her in WTT in 2004, after Maria had won Wimbeldon. I've seen that match, even though it was WTT, I knew Vaidisova would be better after she killed Maria in that match!
that's alright.... I actually don't care too much for either one of them.... I prefer Gisella Dulko, or Flavia Penetta
Knew? As in past tense? Vaidisova hasn't come anywhere near Sharapova's achievements at this point in time...
Or are you saying that Vaidisova is 'better' than Sharapova based on one match?
She's done more and been ranked higher than Maria was at 17. Think about this, they both lost to Kuzzy in their Wimbeldon debut. They both reached the French Quarters at 17. They both went to Bolletteris! I was also saying, the way she played Maria while she was 15-Maria 17, I knew in the longrun Vaidisova would be better. They both did their Asian Tournaments, and won them.
hum... not same opinion here....
Nicole as a prettiest body and prettiest face
maybe we should wait till this is legal . lol jk
How could you say that VAIDISOVA has done more than Maria at age 17? Maria won wimbledon and had a top 5 ranking.
Vaidisova is not there yet.
Sharapova has some naughtiness to her looks and voice. That will be the difference when it comes time for marketing Vaidisova (i.e., when she wins RG this week)
If she gets past the semis, than it'll be her vs either Henin or Clijsters, and then she could take down the obvious favorite like Sharapova did at Wimbledon.
And by that time, Sharapova would have become the next Kournikova and playing exhibitions to a whistling crowd?
Sharpova may be more attractive top to bottom, but Vaidisova has her beat in the upper torso area ;-)
Hey maybe next time he'll let you hold and swing her.
She plays Kuznetsova next.
Talk about different-looking.
Doesn't top to bottom cover the upper torso area. My opinion is that Vaidisova has Sharapova beat top to bottom including all torso areas.
Vaidisova's mum is hotter than both of them.
apologies, when I said top to bottom, I meant Sharapova had her beat in a complete package sense, while Vaidisova takes the victory hands down in the area between her collarbone and top of rib cage ;-)
affirmative! good tennis and crowd scanning this morning on ESPN2.
The Vaidisova's match is on ESPN right now so you should be able to get a glimpse of her mother. And oh yes, she is an attractive woman.
