Is Serena turning in a Karlovic mode ?

This is not a bash thread I know Serena has a game outside her serve unlike Karlovic but come on 15aces over Burrito, 19 against Cibulkova and 19 today against Maria.
I just want to see more than that she is capable of that but sadly we can't see many things except her beautifuls serves

Serena has served this well before. It's went away before...it's came back...went away..etc. When Serena's on, her serve alone will pull her through pretty much any match. But of course we've seen days when it was off.

Re: Is Serena turning in a Karlovic mode ?

So Serena should double fault more?

Karlovic, Isner haven't won much of anything of importance and yet Serena has won several slams. She's not their equivalent. She has a great serve, and a great game that goes with it.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

She served better in AO 08 (until that abortion of a match against Jankovic) and the first 2/3 of this year's AO.

NO.

Serena can play when the ball is in play.
Karlovic can NOT.

Re: Is Serena turning in a Karlovic mode ?

Normally Serena has a devastating return game, which is currently lacking. It will return, her timing seems a bit off.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

If I was talking about Karlovic you would agree with me but since it's Serena I guess not. Again I know she has a game but that's not what we've seen so far in this tournament.

I diagree with you, not because it is Serena and not Karlovic.
But because you are wrong.

Re: Is Serena turning in a Karlovic mode ?

I have a proposition : every woman player who hits a serve more than 200km/h should play on ATP

She could be the best players in the world but I find Serena's game boring as hell when she serve , and without it I affirm this : she would be nothing

Your proposition is null and void.
It is utter nonsense.
