Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - doppelt hält besser - vol2

they just don't seem to click well. I don't like ALG's service motion, when it was round she had more pop on it. I feel like she opens her body too soon and then loses all body tension.
Goerges is not good at the net, her volleys lack proper technique and she often is not close enough to the net to hit every volley above net height. ALG needs a player who had finesse at the net like Kveta did, of course Kveta didn't have a serve but her volleys were amazing and ALG and her clicked really well despite some minor mental brain farts

I feel like they are trying to force this ALG/Julia doubles to work, I dont see it happening since both need solid net players to work. I think even Goerges reached a USO QF with Kveta. Both are powerful, big players with not the fastest reactions. It aint gonna work.

Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - doppelt hält besser - vol2

I agree about her serve...it's really not good. There is no rhythm, and as a result her balltoss is basically never in the same place or the right place. She does bring the right side of her body around too fast because she's falling into the serve, not keeping her body up and loading through the legs. She needs to change it back, it's clearly a failed attempt. As for the team, it works when they are both firing, but neither are in good enough form to win consistently with the tactics they use...Goerges is pretty dire at net a lot of the time and while ALG has good volleys she's just a bit slow to react and cross...I noticed that in their match with Errani/Vinci. No one was really crossing despite the fact it was possible so many times, then they got passed down their lines when they weren't even crossing. Just not proactive enough on those kind of points, which is where someone like Kveta is so good.

Re: Anna-Lena Grönefeld - doppelt hält besser - vol2

Anna-Lena/Görges into SF of Premier Rome !

Very strong wins over Huber/Raymond (6-4 6-4) and #3 Makarova/Vesnina (7-5 7-6)

And some were complaining how shit they were as a team ...

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
