Re: Wimbledon R16:Serena bts Maria Sharapova 7-6(8),6-4

Maria played well the 1st set, some steely stuff to counter her own low 1st-serve percentage. Though Serena's return game was subpar.

Serena's game needs some sharpening. 1st serve was an A/A+. Mental an A. Everything else was trying to work the curve and catch a B+.... Still enough to win the tournament.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Maria had 3 set points in the first set.

Good fight anyhow. Here's looking forward to a really good season.

One break was all it took Better than most expected, but still not a win.

Time to say bye-bye to Michael Joyce and hire a serving coach.

I'd agree with that. I'm glad she's playing doubles so she can work on the return.
