It is one thing that is similar for Russian players - they have plenty of baseline speed, but they are very clumsy moving towards the net. Especially chasing the dropshots. It's almost impossible to dropshot Serena, Venus, Jennifer or Kim, and while our girls are very quick chasing balls on the baseline, they are often getting dropshotted to death.
Didn't Alyona D. also injure herself against Likhovtseva in 2001 while also chasing the short ball ( or dropshot ) on green clay and also twisting her ankle?
