Re: What's wrong with Serena - psychologically speaking ?
I have been following Serena since 1999 and have my own opinions regarding her emotions on the court. Of course the only person who really knows is Serena. But what I have witnessed is Serena plays like she practices. She gets her confidence from her practices. When she enters a match, Serena knows where her game is at. If it is less than stellar her fear of losing increases, sometimes to a point it will not allow her to play. So she uses mental techniques to calm herself down. When she does this she begins to hit the ball short in the court, quit going for lines and uses lots of topspin. This is about the only time her serve sometimes breaksdown. Her eyes form narrow slits and are not wide open. On the other hand, when she is on her game and practices go well, supreme confidence reigns.
Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
