Re: Myskina: Sharapova can beat Serena at Australian Open
there are a few players who can beat Serena . Fast, consistent, with variable directions serve is compulsory to have a chance to beat Serena , so Petrova, Stosur, Sharapova, Kvitova + (Pironkova/Lisicki on grass) have chances to beat Serena if they play flawless. The likes of Azarenka, Radwanska etc only can wait when Serena will be not motivated/tanking in non-slam tournament/ bored etc/mentally ill , making unfault errors here and there , serving 1st serve about 50% and brainlessly bashing their puff serve in out or in the net, to look competitive vs Serena. But being weak sometimes is better , because Serena not feeling resistance from the opponent can lose concentration , her level of tennis can drop significantly like in 2 slam Finals this year.
