Re: Barthel's serve - discuss

Thanks for the little tennis lesson, Howard and for working out the details of her weakness on serve.
I doubt that she will manage to produce such a proper kick serve as Federer and Stosur can do.
But she`s working on it and her serve is still very efficient and one of her main weapons.
Compared to the last season imo she was putting more pace but also more risk on the first serve. Looking at the pretty high first service percentages in this season it has become safer.
I could see that in a line with a plan to level up her game and make it more reliable and solide overall.
