maximus82
Apr 1st, 2004, 05:34 PM
I think the reason the rallies are going slow is partially because eleni's slice bh take the pace off the ball...and Serena is either topspinning or slicing it back, neither of which is a high-pace option...I think the contrast is kinda interesting.

Eleni to serve, down a break 1-4:
Short rally, rena hits a fh long off a decent daniilidou bh dtl 15-0
Serena return into the net...30-0
Big return forces a daniilidou fh scramble error...30-15
Serena return off the 1st serve goes well long...40-15
Nice serena cc bh passing shot just lands in, eleni probably shouldn't have come in, although it was a pretty decent time to approach...40-30
Serena goes for big bh return off the second, hits long...game eleni

Eleni slice return of 1st serve catches net, dribbles on serena's side...40-40
WOW...great point...eleni returns a huge serve, then scrambles down two balls to hit a harsh angle that serena barely gets to (she was up by the net), but rena hits a crazy angle fh winner...ad williams
Double fault...40-40
Eleni overruns a williams down the line fh, blocks the bh long...ad williams
Nice serve down the tee (would have been an ace vs. sharapova), eleni gets to it, but can't control the return...game williams

Serena is SO unimpresive. I think that Venus is now in much better form. It's just that she was not that lucky with the draw and had to play a Top 10 player. Even if Serena wins it, either of Russian will be a favourite to take it on Saturday.

Apr 1st, 2004, 05:50 PM
A few notes:
- Commentators think that serena is looking sluggish today. I think I have to agree...seems like her footwork is off and she is not getting a few balls that she should (the last winner for example)
- Eleni is getting a lot of returns back deep...mostly just chipping them, but I think this is a really good tactic, no need to try and blast the return off big serves and end up giving your opponent lots of points.
- Eleni's second serve is inconsistent...sometimes it's really bad (Elena D-esque), sometimes she will blast big ones.

Eleni to serve, on serve 4-5:
Longish rally ends with rena winner up the line...0-15
Serena 3rd ball clips the net, floats, eleni takes control, runs serena for 3-4 hits, rena eventually hits a running bh wide...15-15
Eleni goes for fh winner off the mediocre return, JUST BARELY misses...15-30
WOWSA...great bh cc short angle off the rena return, Serena gets to it, but can't get it back into the court...30-30
Eleni bh floats long off the deep bh return (2nd serve)...30-40
Set point rena...Eleni has to run for a deep fh, nets it (rena was approaching the net)...GAME SET Serena

BK4ever
Apr 1st, 2004, 05:55 PM
Rena hates to play people like Eleni...players who give her no rhythm...thats probably why she looks off her game...she gets impatient when she has to generate her own pace...its the one area where I think she needs alot work.

Dont talk about weak serving, truefruend. Serena is serving 48% and Danildou 65% for the first set. Think before you talk. No excuses here. For a lady who has not played for 8 months, Serena is playing pretty impressive. And no need to talk about Serena being unlucky about the draw because Dementieva will be less impressive against Serena since she plays somewhat like Serena, without mixing pace the way Danildou is. Serena is also making a pool of unforced errors which she will have to make now until she adjust properly to those cheesy tactics. Then, she will be fine.

Serena will be fine. Eleni plays just like Henin and that's why Serena is having a little bit of trouble with the change of pace. But you've gotta remember this is her first tournament back and she is trying to make the right adjustments. So, let's take things one step at a time. She will be fine.

Just a note: Eleni got upset at the call at 15-30 on her last serve game...mentioned it to the umpire after the game ended, but the chair ump said it was clearly out...could this have cause eleni to lose focus? She lost 6 straight points after that...

1- Eleni isn't fading away...nice to see a women's player who has guts and will fight for it.
2- Rena would do well to get some first serves in...this always going for the ace thing isn't gonna cut it...i dunno why she's doing it, she didn't even it do it this much when she was at her best.
3- She needs to mix up her ad serve more...almost all are going down the tee, good players (like Eleni is now) will anticipate it.

Are you talking about me Giles? If so, you are pretty much right, I'm not really nationalistic in who I root for...my faves are from all countries: henin, davenport, petrova, kuznetsova, schnyder, daniilidou, harkleroad, seles...

...were you refering to the crowd? It's only natural to want to see another set of tennis...and I only heard a few people cheer for Eleni.


On another note: Serena will definitely have to step it up when she plays somebody in the top ten...today showed quite a few areas that she is still weak in...

interview: Serena said she was indeed struggling with movement today, the wind bugged her a little...
