Justine's Serve

I was very impressed by Justine's serve yesterday (for abt 1 and a half sets). When she ended the day, her avg 1st serve speed was like 102mph.

Has any player had such stats before? it is very amazing.

If Justine can serve like that at wimbledon, and if she chooses to come in more, she can be a real contender.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Maybe you could tell her that 5-4 in the third set is a great moment too to hit some big first serves

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Justine was afraid the match could become too boring and the spectators would fall asleep.

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!

We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

she can be a real contender

She reached the final 2 years ago and last she reached the semi final.

This year she has improved a lot. She is number three and she is number two at the Race to the Championship (or number one if she wins Rg).

So, yes, you're right. She might be a contender for Wimbleon.

well the reason why i said she might be a real contender was because wimbledon's on grass and NOT clay.

In the past two years, Justine hasnt had much trouble from the lower ranked players, but the minute she ran into Venus she was blown off the court. The fast surface doesnt really give justine as much time to prepare for her groundstrokes. At the same time, while she had a pretty good serve, it wasnt enuff for her to get to net all the time.

There's no question that Justine can hold her own on grass but against venus and serena especially she's got to come in more cause there's no way she can match them off the ground on grass. And it would help her serve-and-volleying (something which i dont think justine should just be using sparingly on grass. i.e. she should be serve and volleying off every point if possible with her volleys) if she can serve at the level she's been serving.
