No the horrible part is that it was dialed in, especially the last tgwo rounds and in the end it lost her the final. Not the serve that had been shit all tournament.
Of course you have to adjust for the level of opponent, but I already covered the comparison for the previous three Rena matches, so here is the tournament breakdown:
Serena: ROS points won 37%, Serve points won 55% (61% 1st set, 55% 2nd set)
Pennetta: ROS points won 67%, Serve points won 47%
Hantuchova: ROS points won 63%, Serve points won 53%
Ivanovic: ROS points won 54%, Serve points won 49%
Cornet: ROS points won 40%, Serve points won 71%
Wozniak: ROS points won 70%, Serve points won 42%
Pfizenmaier: ROS points won 61%, Serve points won 68%
She almost won as many points on serve in 1st set against Serena as she did in the double bagel against Pfizenmaier and lost it.
I need to stop. This is getting too depressing.
