Controlled Aggression: It's the Way!

Serena has finally learned that this is the way to titles. In her early tournament matches, she was being almost completely passive throughout the entire match. She didn't need much aggression to beat those girls and a couple of them, i.e. Vesnina, were just horrible.

In her last three matches, she had perfect gameplans!

Now if only Venus and James Blake could incorporate "controlled aggression" into their gameplan, life would be great!!!

Re: Controlled Aggression: It's the Way!

go read your thread that i bumped she was never passive to begin with....you have come to expect all out raw power from serena and once you don't get that then she's being passive....

Venus already has started to. More noticeably off the forehand.
I agree Serena was a bit pushy in her early round matches and even against Venus. But in the final she was def. going for more. Mixing in safer shots w/ big shots.

I said that in your other thread.

Re: Controlled Aggression: It's the Way!

the key to the trophy it's been...

esp saving the 2nd and 3rd sp was really balanced power. If she would have rushed there maybe we'd seen a 3rd set

go
Aga_DanI- BeLInDA- CArO_Jelena

Angelique Kerber | Ana Ivanovic | Annika Beck

forgive, you will never reach the level of my loyalty for the best that has ever played:
