Best set ever from Justine on a fast surface

She's going to have to come to net a lot more than she's use to.
She's going to have to make sure she's controlling the majority of the rallies.
She needs to make sure she doesn't even show Serena a break point.
She has done everything right in her power in that set.
Her first serve percentage is in the sixties, she is usually in the fifties on average.
She went for the down the backhand a few times which is flatter.
Serena was not able to come to net to volley on any slice.
She came to the net and didn't win the points but she made the effort.

She controlled more rallies than Serena.
She did Serena give a break point chance but she was already up two breaks.

That's how you take it to Serena.
She did not expect Justine to step up her game this way and Justine has come out with a gameplan something some players have mentioned she lacks.

And Serena has had some at other times too but they have been taken away as fast as they were given.

Justine played the first set in an amazing way. Serena was just crap for most of that set.

Re: Best set ever from Justine on a fast surface

Justine is running after every ball this is fantastic defensive playing against one of the best offensive players out there! And Serena is fighting her way all the time its 4-4 and its so tight now! Its so great I'm definitely downloading this match!

Re: Best set ever from Justine on a fast surface

Serena just looks tired. Im not surprised, shes played a lot and may not be in the best of shape considering her huge layoff last year.

Re: Best set ever from Justine on a fast surface

Allez Justine its amazing how she is playing!!! Poor Serena she hit a backhand straight to the ground. But I think Serena can play better for some reason Justine is just owning Serena now. I think Serena is more surprised and frustrated than anything else, Justine just stepped it up!

Re: Best set ever from Justine on a fast surface

lol I'm a Justine fan, but Justine doesn't even need to play that well. Serena is surviving now purely on her fighting. Her game is totally off today. Justine should've already finished the 2nd set.
