her second serve winning point percentage is still low though: 2/7 = 29%

well, she has hit aces before.
i guess that now she can try to actually mix it up!

go elena D!

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

A weapon?? what happened to it then? dod she just lose confidence in it?

cos the way she's playing now, she'd be top 4 if serve was also a weapon

she already got broken when she served for the set at 5-3 due to a double fault. I guess she is taking chances? I predict 10 df for the whole match.

Why don't you double your prediction, she'll be on court longer than we expected.....

yelena's serve was not a weapon in 2000, but she wasn't hurt by it nearly as much as she is now... i would equate her 2000 serve with that of martina hingis (totally different motion but i would say similar effectiveness).

her serve was a weapon in 2000, watch some of the matches and you would see

particularly in indian wells when she beat chanda rubin in the quarters, the commentators even said she had a great first serve and that it set up alot of points from her

back in 2000 most of the women couldn't serve well aside from the obvious exceptions.
Elena gave away the set 7-5 after leading 5-3
Get it together Elena!

But she had that shoulder problem
and she had to server with SLICE
cause dindt heart that match

then..as Pam said: "Become a bad habit" (server with slice)
