>>>Anna is #1

US Open Women's First Serve Pct. Leaders

Matches First Serve Pct In

1 Anna Kournikova 1 41 of 50 = 82 %
2 Shinobu Asagoe 1 62 of 80 = 78 %
3 Ansley Cargill 1 59 of 77 = 77 %
4 Amanda Coetzer 3 154 of 202 = 76 %
5 Barbara Schwartz 2 160 of 210 = 76 %


Anna is the first serve percentage leader at the open after 4 matches!

p.s. seems this stat is meaningless since she lost her opener in about 42 mins, and of course it favors players who only play a match or two...whatever.

The 1st serve percentage being good doesn't mean anything if they are all slow, flat serves to the centre of the service box...and keep in mind that Hewitt can win matches easily while only getting approx.44% of his first serves in.

who did she lose to again?

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

Sir Richard Williams

That means nothing. Anna's first serve goes about 70 mph. She should get 100% of her "first serves" in. (or go for more)
