OMFG serena what's that ??!!!

I"m extremely dispointed with serena's performance
She's still in her post-miami07 game ... with rust, and errors. All she does is serving aces.
How can she hope she'll defeat Justine with that crap, I'll be grateful if she even passes through vaidisova ...

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

You try playing on this gritty surface and tell me if you don't appear a little rusty.

Serve is like always, but her groundies are really lacking in penetration, Jarmila has played well though...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Yes she's rusty but she always is on the 1st round.
She'll get better

You're so defensive just when he's stating what he's seeing.

Re: OMFG serena what's that ??!!!

Serena always says her first round match is her toughest nerve wise. Its a new surface and this player is someone she's never played against and is a hard hitter. First round of a slam...new year...give her a break. She did win the first set ya know!

She'll get better in later rounds. In a way, it's good that she's being challenged right now. It can only benefit her.

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Serena was practising in Australia as early as anyone and she played on this surface at Hopman Cup. That's not a valid excuse, she's been playing like this for months.
Only thing that remains as good as ever is the serve.

Lets not forget though, many top players are crap in the first round.

This is always "firstroundrena?"

No true Serena Fan should be surprised. She plays 20% Groundgame, 100% Serve Game, 1 Safety Break, A little drama for the fans, wins.

Yeah but :S seriously, didn't she change her forehand or something in the middle of last year ? I mean, when i watch vid from OA07 and every match she played before, that doesn't look at all like what i've been used to seeing for about 10 months...including what i see today
Serena what happened?I thought it was just a physical problem linked to her unfitness ... but it actually seems to be tecnical
What do you think

(and i'm not criticizing- of course what she does is in general very well, but it's not well compared to her true level ... )

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine
