The energy is moving in a sphere, same as in the air. But the water is almost uncompressible fluid so it transfers the energy better. Its like truing to stub someone with knife attached on a spring or with rigid connection. The second one is better :).
In water because of the greater pressure gradient maybe the sphere will be deformed i dont know.
