Elenis serve

Just watching SerenA v Eleni. Eleni has a great baseline game and is playing better than serena so far, but there was a game which she lost after she broke serving 4 doubles! Shes had about ten so far and is serving to stay in the set at 4-5 when she should be serving for it .

is her serve usually a liability? It looks anna-esque

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Eleni looks to have a problem with her shoulder, she was just rubbing it after going down 1-5, serena with double break in set2!

Tough loss 4-6 1-6, esp. after a great start but she looked great and uninhibited by Serena in set1. But you cant blame her for having a lapse of conecntration towards the end of the match due to the serving woes.

A good tournament Eleni, better luck next time! Im sure she'll do very well at the other majors this year.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

It wasnt nerves...she has been serving this badly all week

Still...as Sm said, she is great off the ground and from the back of the court, but that serve

Last year her serve was a bit of a weapon but for some reason she has shaved off a lot of pace and gone for some sort of kick serve thing, and also goes for more placement. I hope she works on it, cos if it wasn't for the serve it would've been a much closer match Anyway, apparently she has some sort of shoulder complaint, which may be hindering her service speed, lets just hope its not a serious one.

Fine effort this week anyway

Eleni is going to be a great player. I love her tactics and variety, but needs work on her service return and serve. Unlimited potential.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Eleni's serve is usually a big weapon of hers. I dont know what went on today but she hits a lot of aces and I have never seen her serve be a liability

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori
