Ana Ivanovic's ball toss

...is pathetic. She needs to improve the fundamentals ASAP. My eyes are hurting so much every time I see that toss.

The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

Re: Ana Ivanovic's ball toss

Sometimes it really looked like she was gonna dive into the blue to reach the ball.

Re: Ana Ivanovic's ball toss

Everytime she throws I know if the serve will be in or not because of that dreadful toss.

Re: Ana Ivanovic's ball toss

It really isn't that hard to throw a ball up straight. I mean if she can't even get these basic motor skills right what chance does she have...

Re: Ana Ivanovic's ball toss

I have her serve mechanics, and I know that it's really hard to keep that ball in the same spot, so I altered mine slightly to not take my arm so far down and up, keeping it more level. I feel like that would help her tons. She also takes advantage of the fact that she has a very flexible shoulder, and she hits a lot of tosses anyway. Bad habit breeds bad trait.

Next stop: Roland Garros

Ana ('08 RG), Serena (21), Venus (7), Petra (2), Angie ('16 AO)
Vika (2), Sveta (2), Simona, Garbi, Ka. Pliskova
Aussie Kim, Mahree (2), Monica (9), Dokic, Sandrine, Jie

Re: Ana Ivanovic's ball toss
