Maria and the YIPS

Going down the route of Kournikova, Dementieva and Coria maybe, according to the ESPN Deportes commentators.

Not much game without the serve, obviously.

Re: Maria and the YIPS

I tend to think this more about the team realising her second serve is being hammered by her main rivals in big matches and that she needs to start doing more than just rolling it the middle of box.

Re: Maria and the YIPS

Serena absolutely punished it - she looked helpless.

Not much game without the serve? Then how did she reach the AO final and breadstick Schiavone?

Re: Maria and the YIPS

maria's serving isn't up to standards at the moment but however i don't think it's that serious just as long as she bags the win even if she is serving badly. why panic?

Didnt say she didnt have any game, but its obvious her serve is the mainstay of her game. Every player has a strong point, but the best of the best can make do when they are off (which Maria has done all of 2007 so far)

I am stating what the commentators said about her serve. Stop being so retarded yourself and accept the situation for what it is. Well, even if you and her other fans dont, hopefully her team will look into it seriously, because I really think the commentators may be on to something.

Re: Maria and the YIPS

Model Runway Sharapova had been playing over her head for 2 years. When only one of the "contenders" like Hingis, Dementieva, Peer or Vaidisova will stop overplayed that little Princess, first round bagels will come sooner than later. Maria worked her way to #1 just by the fact that her opponents downplayed to her "game" (so little that is).

It's not about Wins or Losses, it's about How you Play the Game

Re: Maria and the YIPS

She doesn't miss her second serve my ridiculous margins. The yips is not a very technical concept but it generally occurs when a player completely losing feeling of the balls eg Kournikova serving into the court before it reached the net or a golfer who can't get the ball off the ground.

Re: Maria and the YIPS

I'm watching the live scoreboard and I actually feel sorry for her everytime she makes a double fault. She is much better than this. She just made 5 doublefaults in ONE GAME to be broken.

Sharapova has other elements to her game but without her serve it is very difficult for her to implement because she's a player that like to play points on the front foot. Defense is not something she does so well.

Re: Maria and the YIPS

She'll be okay if she can fix it soon, but if she doesn't she'll start to lose confidence in the rest of her game.

Re: Maria and the YIPS

she might be in transition in changing her serve. nothing much to worry unless she is losing to low rank players

Hingis Fan since 1997
