Lisicki serve

Lisicki seems to have changed her serve motion. Was such a fluid motion at wimbledon.. Now shes trying a abbreviated swing Very sharapovaesque 6 DFs already! Anyone knows why she changed it? Any shoulder injuries?

Re: Lisicki serve

She also talked about it and said that it doesn't feel natural but her shoulder doesn't hurt then

Re: Lisicki serve

I know; I'm glad it's protecting her shoulder, but she really used to have a gorgeous looking serve; now it's just meh. I HATE these abbreviated things; and yes, it looks like Maria's.

At least she isn't hitting them left, right and center like Sharapova enjoys doing.

but she was also hitting aces to make up for the DFs...right now...not so much. I just hope it's just temporarily.

Re: Lisicki serve

Noooooo, I loved her serve at Wimbledon...hopefully this is just a temporary thing as she comes back from injury.

Re: Lisicki serve

I remember one of the commentators saying she had one of the best serves she's ever seen on the women's tour.

It's a shame that injuries have forced her hand.

Re: Lisicki serve

Well Lisicki last year was a player that had an average of 7-8dfs per match so I always considered her serve as not a sure thing. Though her 1st serve was really solid!

OMG she lost 2nd set tiebreak after being 4:0 up
