How to forehand return Serena's serve!!!

for many people, Serena possesses the greatest serve womens tennis has ever seen. Many have even said it single handedly won her grandslams in the past, for example the 2007 Australian Open when the rest of her game was rusty and her fitness was below par.

She has never been more lethal than she was in 2002, but fast foreward this clip to 5:45 and just watch how its done!

The first four forehand returns from Jennifer, especially the first one are just devestating, and completely show how to take command of a rally against Serena from the first strike!

Fair enough, Serena didnt play an amazing game, but she wasnt given the chance to because Jennifer didnt allow her. Its forehands like that that just make me miss Jennifer sooooo much!"!! Her forehand returns are amongst the very best weve ever seen, only Steffi's is better to me, and Davenport's on the second serve. Her forehand on the run is maybe the best ever too!

Back in those days if only her Serve was as reliable, she would have undoubtedly won more slams, and if she wwere around playing like that today, she would take care of players like Ivanovic and Jankovic and Sharapova no problem!

Serena hits weak serve's sometimes [every player does, no one can hit consistently good serves], like she did in that point, nothing special

Spetacular return from Jennifer, that bomb... Serena was out of sorts in that game

The type of serving shown by Serena in that match ISN'T the type of serving she portrayed when winning slams like the AO 07.

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

Great effort from Jennifer considering she could barely see since that was pre eye surgery.

Also.....is it that hard to spell WIN right?
