Exclamation Serena serving almost as if in her glory days...

8 Aces already vs. Azarenka. Unfortunately, this match isn't going to be as close as the commentators want it to be.

Go Serena!

Re: Serena serving almost as if in her glory days...

It seems like she just wants to break around 3-3, 4-3 and just serve it out. Doesn't seem by the live score she is looking to break but to just hold as if this were grass.

Re: Serena serving almost as if in her glory days...

Yeah...she has been serving up a storm this tournament so far...if she could keep this up all tournament I can definitely see her defending.

But, that said, it's a shame that all the young girls don't under the idea of blocking back returns, or are too slow to do so. But I guess that is a problem most of the tour has (except Vee, Henin, and maybe a few others).

Shame she isn't returning like in her glory days....

Still too many errors, but I think she will wait til the business end of this set to tighten up and break.

She seems to be conserving energy. Not going for too much on the return games with the knowledge that her serve is on fire. 23/25 on first serve pts. 8 aces in only 6-7 service games.

Re: Serena serving almost as if in her glory days...

Azarenka has great groundies...but needs to get faster and at least *try* to do something to get into Serena's service games. Right now she's frustrated and has given up. Congrats to Rena on beating down the new generation
