In terms of ranking, I do not like to say, " this player parties can get 30 , 20 or 10 ." The first mistake made by people, even coaches and players , is to set limits . I believe that there are no limits . I believe that you have or long or short time to reach the peak.

Speaking strictly of tennis played in the female continues to see much difference between those who serve better or that move better on the field. In men I think it is the answer to the serve what really matters "
