Re: Serena Williams' 20 aces v Stosur

Is there a video of all of Isner and Mahut's aces from their Wimbledon 2010 match?
That would be a real treat

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

Nope

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.

Same exho where Caro beat Sarin rite?

Obviously if you are as slow as Stosur and wearing super dark shades, you wouldnt be able to see the ball even if its in front of you.

Re: Serena Williams' 20 aces v Stosur

This is great.

Anyone have the YouTube link for Petra's aces at Wimbledon? Wickmayer was so pissed when she got aced. I need to see that again.

Obviously you know nothing about how our eyes work in light. Heard of pupil dilation? Ever wondered how you could see in the dark?

So long...

I know, David Mercer said it didn't bode well after the double fault

What I love is the disguise, especially the slice serve on the ad court, sliding away from the opponents forehand; this clip shows Serena is old school because she has the technique perfectly, the modern players have not been taught this serve at all, men and women. Kvitova has this serve and it gives her an extra edge, plus she's a lefty so uses it on the deuce court.

This particular serve gives you an extra edge when it comes to hitting 2nd serves on the ad court because it is a great change up from the conventional serve to the backhand which opponents are just waiting for.

Incidentally, Sharapova used to be very good at hitting that serve but since all of her shoulder troubles, she's lost that serve unfortunately, it's nowhere near as good as it used to be.

Re: Serena Williams' 20 aces v Stosur

Serena's serve is GOAT, and Sam's return is WOAT... I'm surprised she didn't serve more tbh

Perhaps you are been harsh, it is not possible to win a mjor title if you can't return serve.
