I saw alot of the match, and quite frankly Serena took me by surprise. In that first set she was amazing and so dominating! Flawless!
I disagree about the second serve being the key factor. The factor is Serena can blow Lindsay away with better powerful and angles groundies than Lindsay can. I remeber in Indian Wells when Serena handed Linds her worse defeat in a long time. Serena was just too good. Just like in that first set. If Serena and Lindsay were to play their best tennis Serena would win everytime.
Also it's a known fact that people are starting to read Lindsay's serve now. She tends to go outwide on I THINK the duece court. Not sure.
Anyway, Serena was attacking Lindsay's serve because she knew where they were going. Serena's return game is also highly underestimated as well.
Honestly, Lindsay is a great champion and fighter and player, but Serena is better in ever department than Lindsay. Speed,serve,groundies,mental attitude,break points,angles and return.
