Seoul Q1r: A.Kapros def. N.Grandin 7-6(6) 6-7(3) 6-0 - weird serve stats for AK

Aniko was only serving at 45%, yet managed to rack up 13 aces Has she beefed up her serve or something?

Nice to see you back on tour Aniko

It's been a long road back for Aniko. I remember when she was 2 points from a title in Japan against Sharapova.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

the stats aren't weird, if she was realy going for her 1st serve you would expect a low % and high ace count. she will probably need to do this if shes to make an impact in her return.

well done aniko

With all due respect to Aniko, I think 13 aces could more represent Grandin's unability to touch many of the serves (she's not a great mover, and often doesnt read serves very well).

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.
