Re: Youtube Highlights of Serena vs. Kuznetsova

It seems to that there is a difference btw Venus and Serena at this point in their careers. Venus plays( and runs to the ball) like she's still hungry to win. Serena is not quite moving to the ball well and has been playing like this in all her quaterfinal pit stops. You can always sense how much a player wants to play well and win by the way they move to ball and whack it but Serena has not been doing this since her last tournament win. The way to beat Svetlana is to play the first few games very well and focused, and she will leave you to your own devices and start overhitting( Golovin did that well today). But starting off losing your serve to her won't do it. I'm suprised she didn't use this ploy against a player who can't withstand pressure.Serena is still not fully there yet.

Re: Youtube Highlights of Serena vs. Kuznetsova

And what gets me is Serena keeps on lamenting the ball "flying off her racket". How many times this year has that damned ball fallen off that cursed racket?

Clearly, in Serena's mind the racket is at fault. And the damn ball.

But she's working hard enough, no doubt about that

Re: Youtube Highlights of Serena vs. Kuznetsova

Hahahaha

The way people were talking about this match I thought there was a great play out there.

In those "highlights" what I see is Svetlana hitting first serves in, Serena hitting backhands to the net and out and that's about it.

Latest WTA results:

Stuttgart: Bondarenko def. Ivanovic (Ajde!)
US Open: Radwanska def. Sharapova (Vamos!)
Moscow: Azarenka def. Sharapova (Come On!)

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.

These aren't highlights. Sevtlana did play great, but this video doesn't show those points, and ofcourse that's why supergrunt liked it.

Re: Youtube Highlights of Serena vs. Kuznetsova

Is Serena considering retirement ?

After looking at that performance, who knows ...

Re: Youtube Highlights of Serena vs. Kuznetsova

Serena just played bad. Sveta didn't have to do much to win, Serena did it for her with all those errors.

Can't complain too much though, she showed up and she played. I hope she picks her game up in Moscow.
