Yeah... agreed. i think the change in action she brought to her after the shoulder injury is a big factor. With her new action, she is not as consistent. It is good in general, but if put under pressure it is prone to crack .
Sania was not able to put any pressure in her serve, and she was happy and brushed her away .

Aga put her serve in prssure in whichever way she could (some people are angry at her methods like Jim) . She does not Serena or Henin's return that she would stand in the baseline and crash them to all corners, so she danced around a bit and put pressure.

Masha needs to get more consistency in her serve to take the next big step.

Re: General Tennis Discussion - Non Sania

Is Kyra Shroff Mahesh's new Sania? Her service action is awesome! The point is finished before she completes her service motion l:

hey sharpy was having major problems whole year with her serve..Even before she changed it.. in fact thats the major reason why she changed it..To put less pressure on that shoulder!

yes you are right. To be precise, maria's shoulder problem and the consequent problems with her serve is the culprit, and the change in action has not yet brought the desired result or consistency. But I am sure she will overcome it.

Re: General Tennis Discussion - Non Sania

Daniela Hantuchova is one of my favorites. She has a solid serve. She has a good court play. She has a great chance of winning the Sunfeast open. I don't think she will choke. She is totally focussed in her game. Best of luck to Hantu.

Anna Chakvetadze
Maria Sharapova

Re: General Tennis Discussion - Non Sania

Let dandi clear 1st round She usually doesnt seem to be interested in winning any other event than Indian wells By the way at the moment Chaky is playing much better than hingis you gotta admit that ASP

now she is a better player than hingis for now. hingis is in quite poor form recently struglling with injuries but you compare thier career hingis is way better.(anna will not even come close to what hingis achieved.) end of story
hingis already won 5 major titles before the age of 20.
plus she has 43 career singles titles.(40 of those came before her retirement in 2002. ) and 37 doubles titles.

How many did GS tournament did anna won? zero.
Here are some higlings of her tourmnament wins
2007- Hobart, 's-Hertogenbosch, Cincinnati, Stanford; 2006 - Guangzhou, Moscow
3 tier III, 1 tier IV and one MM tier II. (only big victory was in Moscow where she defeated safina. demetieva and petrova. No big deal petrova is a mediocore player, safina and demetieva are good players she managed to defeat. Everybody knows demetieva is unpredictable player and safina is a good player.
plus she can only capable of beating low ranked players like shahar peer or sania mirza.(who are ammateurs and certainly don't come up with any kind of game plan. )
she can't beat players like sharapova,justine, kuznetsova, serena etc etc. (just take a look at H2H records against those players.)
anna has been on tour for more than three years all she managed to is win a couple of MM tournaments.

You guy really need to get your facts straight.
i don't deny annac is better than hingis now. but in the overall career Hingis is way better player.(Even if you compare peek anna and peek martina, annac is not even close to what martina did.)

Re: General Tennis Discussion - Non Sania

BTW saniamania there is good discussion going on MTf on equal pay. i'm really enoying that. people are repeatlly blasting wta tour's poor quality of matches.(they mentioned the results of this years GS finals.) Very interesting discussion going on.

Re: General Tennis Discussion - Non Sania

thanks ASP for the info. I will definitely visit MTF. Actually I support equal pay if the WTA plays 5 setters whenever ATP does, equal pay should imply equal work, not 60% (3/5) work. As to the quality, people counter with diff things.

Re: General Tennis Discussion - Non Sania

BTW, hope Lindsay makes a strong comeback and Hingis finds her mojjo back . These 2 along with the 2 w's, Henin and Masha, and hopefully Ivanovic making the next grade, can raise the quality of matches from SFs onwards.

Other than Henin-Bartoli and Henin-Vee, the other slam SFs and finals were terribly one-sided
This is the worst set of top tenners in a long time.

Just compare them with the lot we had in, say 1999: Graf, Seles, Hingis, Lindsay, Capriaty, 2 Ws, Kim, Mary, and you would like to cry

OK, Anastasia Rodionova returns.

Charu Sharma: Anastasia, welcome back to India, you have played in Hyderabad, and now you are here. How do you feel?

Ans: These tournaments are different, (shaking her head) I will somehow manage. Lets see.
