I personally think she should go back to bigger racquets.

The racquet isn't the problem.

Re: Do you think that Serena's "control-oriented" racquet is...

If she had a bigger racquet, the shots would just go flying all over the place. If i remember correctly, she wasnt doing so well in 2005 or 2006 either.

Stay with the racquet but she needs to realize she needs to be lighter and learn some variety maybe. This isn't men's tennis... you can't just win on a good serve.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

No. But I do think she should go back to using the racquet she had when she won AO 05.

Her footwork is the problem, not her racquet.
