Elena's serving was very good. She was mixing up placement and only hit a few soft second serves that actually threw Maria off. So have faith, it is coming together. She just had a bad serving game which lost her the match.

Once she has a new serve that she is comfortable with, she'll be fine. And yep, in my eyes, she is the best too.

I wana see Elena play Maria when she isn't as tired. The YEC hopefully

Serves aren't things you can change immediately. It takes a long time. She may never change it (the motion), but just improve on it.

All the critics say it's atrocious, and she'd actually win GS titles if it were better. It's the only thing holding her back, because her return game, forehand, and movement and the rest of her package are quite solid.

Yes, but the serve has looked much better the past two weeks. Elena has really been hitting her serves 80% of the time instead of just spinning them in. And she has placed them on the BH and FH side.

Its more mental than technical. And Elena is making progress.

I think her serve comes down to muscle memory because she has said that it's been going pretty well in training. Hopefully she'll soon get it working in matches. By the way, very, very nice forum topic. Elena is so much cooler than everyone else on the wta tour

Course she can and Dee is righ tshe IS improving her serve ,she held solidly after losing the first game it really is getting better ,methinks the main prob yesterday was Lena was not as motivated as at say KC or USO....and didnt quite take her chances but hey u cant be on fire every match!!
Lena is just the most naturally beautiful girl I have seen and she really is soooo sweet u just want to take her home and look after her ,but with that body of hers she prob would do all the looking after .shes awesome the fittest girl out there and so intellligent!
