Well it didn't help then, and it certainly didn't help her in Tokyo.

Serena Williams
21-Time Grand Slam Champion

6 AO ('03, '05, '07, '09, '10, '15) 3 FO ('02, '13, '15)
6 WBN ('02, '03, '09, '10, '12, '15) 6 USO ('99, '02, '08, '12, '13, '14)

Re: Coach Made Maria Serve For 2 Hours Day Of Ao Final

If this is true, Maria should fire her coach -- and her father.

NO wonder she had nothing on her serve during the match.

That's one of the dumbest ideas I have ever heard of.

Re: Coach Made Maria Serve For 2 Hours Day Of Ao Final

thats ridiculous if true...why on Earth do u need a practice session of 2 hours on the finals day when it was clear that her serve was coming together in the semis (except that notorious game when she served 4 df's but also hit some great ones to compensate for)
but, i'd double check the source of this info...it is either just a speculation or a huge mistake by her coaches

Re: Coach Made Maria Serve For 2 Hours Day Of Ao Final

I wonder if that was the excuse before every match at the AO before the final, cause her served was wack then too. And I wonder if he did it before every match at the TPP cause her serve was wack then too. ....Hmmm... No it's not the supposed two hour session. The more people buy into it the more desperate the make Masha look. Too bad.

This is simply spin doctor stuff to minimize a crushing defeat. It's simple. She needs to take some time off and work on her serve. Period.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!
22!!!!The Debate is OVER, Suckas!!

Re: Coach Made Maria Serve For 2 Hours Day Of Ao Final

Exactly. Maria's serve sucked the entire championships. She served no better or no worse in the final than she did in her previous 6 matches, so those 2 hours obviously didnt affect her too much. At least she didnt DF on any break points in the final.

I love how people continue to make excuses for Maria's loss, get over it already.

Really, don't even look at me...

Re: Coach Made Maria Serve For 2 Hours Day Of Ao Final

I'm not sure about the length of time (2 hours) but even during the ESPN coverage, Luke Jensen mentioned this. I remember him saying before the match started that Maria was practicing on only her serve for a certain period of time. Obviously, it wasnt good for her to be practicing only serves right before the match because it put more pressure on her and it signalled a weakness in her game she hadn't figured out yet.

Bad call, I say. But I really doubt it was two hours...

This could help her. She lacks big time on fitness, somebody must teach her that tennis isn't a fashion show, you need to work hard on court to be the best. The field will someday stop playing like crap when facing sharapova.
