Re: Beijing F: Azarenka def. Sharapova 6-3, 6-1
The problem on clay ain't about the serve otherwise Serena would have won the French and red clay titles by now.
As for grass courts, she needs a bigger serve that's for sure and the will to take risks before her opponent does. Vika is seriously good at redirecting pace and constructing points but on grass you need that first strike tennis. Vika's game is very consistent but not that explosive this is why I don't think she will win that major.
That's a fallacy.
A well-placed serve, even on clay, can be just as devastating as on any
If you are just talking about pace, then you have a point.
Do people honestly believe that Serena will never
win another FO?
I find that very interesting.
Serena is actually a great clay court player.
Hiccups happen to the best players, and the best understand how to adjust.
If Serena never wins another FO title prior to retirement, then I will concede the point.
However, Serena's record of overcoming the improbable are very high.
