Thanks for posting this. Schiavone's grunt is so strange.

thanks..some good highlights. i'm glad they only showed Serena's winners :hearts:

And for the people who say Serena is a mindless ball basher they need to see these points. Angles, deep moonballs and then coming to net , drop shots, and some nice volley winners off

Serena's volleying looked fantastic and she it a real nice, biting bh slice there!

Hope she can maintain that form.

Holyyyyyyyy!! That point @ around the 2 min mark of the vid was crazy court coverage from Serena. She is hitting very crisply and with lots of depth...Im very impressed for her 1st red clay match of the year. Keep it up Rena!!

Wow. Serena looks incredibly comfortable on the red clay.

I want a new outfit, though. :(

Hey Zone, if it's giving her good luck, don't change it now. ;) Ever since she started wearing it, she's been winning.

So then let's bring back the catsuit! Nothing ever went wrong with that one, :drool:

But fine, I'll take a RG title without a new outfit. :(

Nice to see Serena in this form. Wow, she's getting pretty close to her '03 form imo. 2002 form will never return, but '03 form seems attainable.

Don't worry--if not for Rome, Serena will surely have a new outfit for RG. Anyway, as long as she's been wearing this outfit, she's been winning--and she looks good too! Serena definitely has a good dose of confidence right now, which is trouble for everyone else!

I think that she's playing better on clay than her 2003 form!!

and..
about the same level as 2002..

I LOVE that SErena is making all the adjustments and adding all these subtleties to her game. And she seems so focused. I think winning will start to become a habit and then an insatiable hunger that drives her to even more commitment to get back to and then STAY on top of women's tennis because with Justine in her current form, there is a GAPING hole at the top of the women's game that is waiting to be filled and it's not going to be Sharapova, Ivanovic(yet) or Kuznetsova.

Wowza....this really bodes well. Lets hope that she peaks at the right time going into the French and Wimbledon, has a nice hard court summer, and does well at the US Open. Keep it up diva...stay healthy and keep playing that kind of tennis. :worship::hearts:

So much variety and strategy attacking the high moonball weakness of Fran's 1HBH and then attacking. Dropshots, volleying, backhand down the line winners. The only thing I didn't see is her CC Forehand roller, but I'm sure it was/will be there.

"this court's a little dangerous...so you won't be seeing a lot of sliding from me here."



???? What does that mean?

Uranium
May 6th, 2008, 11:21 PM
she's saying it's really slippery, so that if she slides wrong she might hurt herself, so she won't slide much.
i think in one of the first points of the video she almost fell.

I know this was a highlight video, but still....there was some serious placement, court-craft and touch out there, the sort that comes into her game whenever she's been practicing hard, feeling her swing, coming on the court focused and sure of herself. That change-up moonball-and-attack was Hingis-like. And those on-the-stretch, touch volleys she hit seemed like she'd been watching old Rafter clips. Well. Serena, don't mind me acting all surprised and pleased. Just maintain and improve.

Serena looked really good (taking into consideration it was a highlight reel) she mixed it up really well and if she keeps playing that way she has a shot at every clay tourney she enters too bad her and Justine have to meet in the QF. She definitely played well but I'm still not confident she'll take out Justine on clay just yet if there is a place where Justine feels comfortable its clay so Serena needs to stay focused.

If there's one thing I really love about Serena it is her ability to recall that someone beat her and then make sure they know as she's kicking their ass that that will never happen again.

It's a great shut your fucking mouth for Pam Shriver if she only wants to talk about the negative.
