No we're not on the all serve, I saw that match and I can tell that Serena from that semi in Wimbledon and the semi from OG was totally different in ROS. Serena couldn't hit a return to save her life in the whole Wimbledon 2012 she was beyond hopeless and not only against Vika.
so who won Wimbledon 2012?

Maybe I explain myself very bad but I didn't mean to bash her, I was just saying that Serena without playing and returning that well took care of Vika in straights. In OG she was playing much better and destroyed the field.

Quite expected, Vika just owns MaSha, and has owned already for years. The only set MaSha can win against Vika is 1st set, she chokes the 2nd set because 1) she's already lost the 1st (like AO) OR 2) she's won the 1st set and starts to think "I MUST win now" (like USO). I didn't watch the match but I expect from the scoreline that 1) happened.

But she still did better than Maria at the Olympics against Serena, no?!

Not saying that Vika's gonna become a perenial Wimbledon winner, but if she can tweak the serve to earn some free points off it, she CAN be a threat on the surface.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Imo Maria still is the better player, but she struggles too much with the serve against Vika, also Vika thakes the ball very early so Maria has less time to recover, Vika doesn't hit that hard, but uses the pace very well,the big advantage that Vika has is the movement. If Vika had to play the Maria from 04/05/06 or 08 it wouldn't be that easy..

Who Vika? at Olympics both were club level vs Serena. Being knocked out in second round is not better being knocked out in first, because both end up in hospital

She is, I'm sure of that. But it won't change the outcome of their matches if Maria keep playing and serving like this.
Maria is a player who was able to compete against the very best players in the game, players who are infinitely more talented than Vika and she found a way to figure them out, there is no reason for her not to figure Vika who is not as talented as Maria's previous rivals.
Now that Maria finally won her major on red clay she needs to find a way to become good on HC again, 4 losses in finals (0 sets won ) that's just unacceptable I want a major on HC next year.
