Re: Better Serve than Serena? Golden Serve

And the fact that this happened against serve-bot Hradecka is hilariously ironic.

Re: Better Serve than Serena? Golden Serve

It says a lot more about Hradecka than about Mallory whose fastest first serve barely crept to about 98mph while average first serve was about 92mph

Serves aren't always about speed, sometimes about placement too

Re: Better Serve than Serena? Golden Serve

I'd like to see her play now and then imagine how badly Hradecka must have been playing.

Re: Better Serve than Serena? Golden Serve

Nice, nice...yes, finally who can take the mantle of servebot over from Serena.

Always bet on black!

Re: Better Serve than Serena? Golden Serve

The "serve-bot" thing is stupid. Most top ATP players use their serve effectively. Yet when a few women - most notably Williams - begin to finally develop that same facility there are people who whine about it. While whiners I'd suggest you make plans to stop watching the WTA because more than likely more women are going to start developing their serve. Least I hope so.
