Yeah, small back injury that bothers her when serving. She thinks she got this injury because she moves different because of the ankle injury.

I red on Belgian teletext, that it's something she has for quite some time, but it's the first time it's bothering her. It's not that bad, she can defenatly play, but it worries her a little. That's what her coach says.

I knew that something was wrong with her because she wasn't serving the way she normally does.

Myskina will eat those slow serves for lunch. Kim better watch out. This should be a close match.

Actually, yes. If you check their service stats from the last match, you'll see that Myskina had better serves than Kim.

Um how?

Stats from last matches

Kim:
1st serve in: 61%
Aces:1
Double Faults:5
Winning on 1st serve: 68%
Winning on 2nd serve: 58%
Fastest serve:177kph
Avg 1st serve:153kph
Avg 2nd serve: 141kph
Broken: 2 of 4

Anastasia
1st serve in: 36%:eek:
Aces: 1
Double Faults:5
Winning on 1st serve: 88%
Winning on 2nd serve: 50%
Fastest serve: 169kph
Avg 1st serve: 150kph
Avg 2nd serve: 114kph
Broken:3 of 5 times

so they have the same double faults. Kim still has faster serves even with her back. In fact the only department Myskina is ahead in is first serve % won which is very high yes but she only got 36% in.
Kim has to step in and take the second serve or else she will do what Rubin did and that is wait for the ball to get to her and it will already be dipping and very slow and her shot will go into the net. Although it is pretty pointless to look at these stats and go so and so is serving better as Kim doesn't play like Rubin and Myskina isn't Farina. But thought I'd put it here just to show it
