SerenaSlam

well its 65%, but that is pretty good, seeing we keep wondering when venus is off a couple months, if she is working on her second serve and foreheand

SerenaSlam
Apr 26th, 2003, 06:02 PM
if they win all of the singles today haven't they won? venus/serena of course...will they have to play doubles?

SerenaSlam

another question, these scores are happening very quickly, espcially when they (in a wta match) sit down on the change of ends, do they do that here?

SerenaSlam
Apr 26th, 2003, 06:07 PM
come on venus at least give us a bagel! we already had a breadstick!

She tends to let up a little more when she is cruzing now than she did in the past!

SerenaSlam
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:11 PM
what is up w/ Serena and her second serve returns? She is extremely off right now on them!

She is having an easier time with first serves, again I know she likes the pace now a days, but has this thrown her off a bit when it comes to second serves?

Benesova
First serves won 12/20-60%
Second serves won 8/10-80%

Serena
First serves won 8/10
Second serves won 6/9

maybe iveta is playing good
if that was the case then it would be venus on the other side of the net, serena is off, and im tired of that dumb ass excuse, that is why i wish they had the error/winner stat to shut you all up

and it still kills me (set point for Benesova), that you all come in right when serena starts to loose control and gets down

7-5 6-0 will be the score, after that Set Point against serena, she hit an unreturnable, followed by an ace, then another unreturnable! I think she has really picked it up, and its over for Benesova, and besides, Venus won so quickly, Serena is trying to give these people they monies worth

aisha
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:24 PM
So she's won the set then? :embarrass:

SerenaSlam
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:24 PM
50 Percent winnings on first serves for Benesova! That just cracks me up, but pisses me off when I see she is winning much more with the second!

SS, how did V's 2nd serve look?

SerenaSlam
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:42 PM
it was better, a lil more kick, but not that much "pop" to it, the more and more she works on it, it should get better, but today she it them more out to the backhand than usual, so its clear to me she is working on it. but if you are still reading the stats wrong, venus only won 59% with her second serves on 88%, but yeah you can tell she at least is trying to work on it.

forehand looked like it had a lil more pop to it.

CJ07
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:43 PM
i have it only for today though. and only for the time allowed, like the 2-3 hours or whateva

SerenaSlam
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:44 PM
Serena the start of this match by the way, seemed more so confused on how to return serve than stay in rallies, but the start of this second set, its seems to have kicked in (like i was saying :)

7-5 5-1! Damn I was 1 game off!

aisha
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:45 PM
Isn't 59 % above average for 2nd serve winning %?

SerenaSlam
Apr 26th, 2003, 07:45 PM
yeah, but there is a "waiting list" now ain't that a shame, there must be a shit load of tennis fans here in IL, but yeah, since there is a waiting list, you could pay 80 bills to see the matches each day, 160 for the weekend. i chose 1 day and 1 day only!

oh yes definetly it was much much better than usual. but i was saying it wasn't like people were thinking around 88%, venus second serve did more damage today than Serena's against Benesova, and by the way Iveta does have some unforeseen power :), serena had just a lil to much :)

The first match was kind of lame.
Deja looked out of sorts, she was definetly not
up for Boston. Poor thing. Deja's a better
player than what she showed today.

Iveta was pretty good; I thought this was also
going to be a dull, sad, scooby bagel snack. Decent
serves too.

I think the tie would've been a tad fairer if
it were played in the Czech Republic. The
coach even looked intimidated with it all.
