Re: ...HardCourt II

You can see how Sam did so well in doubles. If the returner isn't used to a decent kick serve they're just focusing on getting it back in court, which often means the ball isn't directed well, allowing Julia to smack the ball for a winner a fair amount of the time.

Re: ...HardCourt II

I wonder whether Sam has deliberately changed her toss and/or service action. When she gets hold of it it looks pretty potent atm, but I can't remember seeing her drag so many serves down so they hit the net only halfway up to the tape.

Re: ...HardCourt II

Back on serve. I don't think Sam did anything wrong in that service game ... Julia on the other hand ...
