Re: Women's Serve
less hight means you need more percentage to clear the net, meaning slower, or higher clearing of the net.
why they don't hit the kicker is a better question, but in general - the girls reaching 6'0 foot/180 CM and higher usually own a pretty useful first serve, and they usually rack up the second one quite nicely too.
judging the top10 to all own great serves is pointless. Karlovic has a mch better serve than Simon, yet no one is really expecting him to challenge federer, murray and nadal back to back as simon already has.
perhaps in men's tennis, the vice-versa is more common:
"how can a player with such awful ground strokes get to the top10 with serve alone"?
if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
