|I like Barty too. But Serena's serve was tested today. She knew she had to serve or go home. A real shooting contest it was. |
I believe this was good practice. Her serve will only get better. Once she trusts the serve, she will up her returns. Deadly combination.
Got to see this Replay of this shootout. Smile
Serena's serve has always been good, but returning from childbirth and not playing awhile it indeed lapsed since and showed at IW and Miami. She has recovered same but against a player who is known for having her own good serve, which was borne out by match stats today. Yet, liked Serena attempting droppers today to expose the lack of movement of both Pliskova sisters but she wasn't successful at all in her execution but it was good attempts. Yet, Ashleigh will drop Serena herself and expose Serena's movement, which wasn't that good, coupled with her mediocre-to-less-than mediocre net play on short balls. She's not going to serve 60 aces to offset those issues. Not holding it against Serena, for she's just returning, plus being 37 years of age now. Yet, we'll see how it unfolds and how Ashleigh reacts to playing Serena on Chatrier, I suspect.... Looking forward to the encounter, Serena prevailing, in addition to liking the outfit......nice.....
