What do you think of Goerges serve?

The first time I saw Goerges service motion it reminded me of Gigi Fernandez. Not that fluent and beautiful but more aggressive.

She kinda stops in between the motion and the way she moves her right arm back looks a little awkward. But it's an elegant motion and she's able to produce emense power.

I never thought she could serve like 200 km/h. But she almost does!

A decent shot . She can, and will improve it hopefully.

The good thing about it is that it is so consistent and it is turning into a weapon of her game these days .

Seems very effective

I hate the rest of her game however.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Re: What do you think of Goerges serve?

I think it IS quite fluent. ... compared to the bloody horror shows we get from half the WTA, it's a nice looking serve. Fernandez had like the most fluent serve ever...

Halep Venus
Muguruza
Kerber
Safarova Bertens
Kvitova

Very effective serve..specially that kick-serve 2nd serve. Is totally fooling Caro.

Always bet on black!

Re: What do you think of Goerges serve?

It's horrible, but effective

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: What do you think of Goerges serve?

I actually love her game and technique, it reminds me of Golovin's and Vakulenko's Although I hope Julia won't have the same injury-problems like those 2.

Something that hasn't been mentionned: she has great placement. Her wide serve is particularly impressive.

Re: What do you think of Goerges serve?

Julia's serve is hard/fast yet fluid, sexy and well thought-of and disguised. Which is why anticipation-expert Wozniacki is too often clueless of the direction and depth of even the second serve.

Re: What do you think of Goerges serve?

Her service motion reminds me of Tatiana's, just with a lot more wrist. Verry good looking, and very effective too. Particularly her serves out wide are brilliant.
