Why isn't Serena playing well?

1. Doesn't do enough with short balls
2. Can't bend (I really don't think she can )
3. Limited when on the run
4. Too many shots hit without purpose or conviction

Yes, but don't worry: Serena can pummel anybody.

Re: Why isn't Serena playing well?

This is as well as she needs to play to win this round. When she'll need to play better she will. Trust.

Re: Why isn't Serena playing well?

I wouldn't say she isn't playing well.

The only set we've seen her play she was fully in control 5-1, dropped some intensity and now its 5-3 deuce but she'll prob win the set anyway....

I think with Serena it's all about confidence on the big stage. She might look like she's not on her A game for one match and then come out cracking the ball and firing on the next round.

We'll have to see, she's been working hard now she just needs to relax and play up to her potential.

Re: Why isn't Serena playing well?

I thought she played fine tbh, typical first round type performance. She will win easily.
