Re: Youtube Highlights of Serena vs. Kuznetsova
It also strikes me, watching these clips, and some others from this year, that Serena may sometimes present far too great a physical proposition for her opponents, but quite often has too much strength for her own good.
Serena, when anything is slightly off, has the instinct to bring her superior physique to bear, and as a result the ball sprays all over the place. To play as she did against Sharapova in Melbourne, Serena needs everything to be in sync. When she's not at her best, she has no B game, and nothing to fall back on.
And she still looks less toned than she can be, and not in optimum conditioning.
