Why are people complaining about Serena's serve ?

Why does it annoy so many people that Serena has such a good serve. It's her main weapon and she uses it like one.

If your favourite player had a serve like Serena's then you sure wouldn't be complaining about it. So much bitterness and anger on this board just because Serena is one of only a select few of players than can rely on her serve

Because her name is Serena Williams, and she is #1 and has 12 slams.

Re: Why are people complaining about Serena's serve ?

Because I want to see more rallies I am complaining about her serve, yes, but it's not her fault, all credits to her for working hard on that serve. I would love Floptine could serve like she does
Actually, I am complaining about that most of girls can't read Serena's serve, and return it because of the power.

Give back 2006 US Open to Justine

Re: Why are people complaining about Serena's serve ?

It is the only reliable shot in women's tennis at the moment. You've got to admire Serena for recognizing that she can dominate opponents merely by doing what she's always done well (i.e. serve), just a little better than ever, ala Federer/Sampras : hold serve easily and take a couple of risks on an odd return game here and there. Immense pressure on opponents every single serve game.

Because it seems like an unfair advantage.
But its not her fault. The girls should work harder to study her serve patterns and get more returns in play.

There is more precision than power in her serve otherwise it would have been a la Venus , serena is technically perfect on this shot .

It's not like Serena doesn't outrally her opponents in 90%+ of her matches. Unlike Roddick.

Goodbye WTA and Jelena. It was nice being your fan once.

Re: Why are people complaining about Serena's serve ?

But she's won three 6-0 sets, you don't do all that with just a serve??

Of all the players that made it past round 3, Serena leads in break point conversitions. Going in to todays match she was 19 of 30 with 63%!!! If she is just a serve how is that explained?

Other stats that show her return game is just fine:
-Second Serve points won Serena is #5 (behind Kanepi, Zvonereva, and Pironkivo)
-First Serve return points won she is in the top 10

Here are the Wimbledon Stats: http://www.wimbledon.org/en_GB/score...ts_won_ws.html
