:cool:
her second serve winning point percentage is still low though: 2/7 = 29%

i remember the days in 2000 when elena's serve was actually a weapon lol

Szymanowski
Mar 13th, 2005, 07:57 PM
A weapon?? what happened to it then? dod she just lose confidence in it?

cos the way she's playing now, she'd be top 4 if serve was also a weapon ;)

yeah that may be true, but she also has 5 DF....

Szymanowski

5's not to many DFs

esp for Elena

she already got broken when she served for the set at 5-3 due to a double fault. I guess she is taking chances? I predict 10 df for the whole match.

Why don't you double your prediction, she'll be on court longer than we expected..... :rolleyes:

yelena's serve was not a weapon in 2000, but she wasn't hurt by it nearly as much as she is now... i would equate her 2000 serve with that of martina hingis (totally different motion but i would say similar effectiveness).

:rolleyes:

her serve was a weapon in 2000, watch some of the matches and you would see

particularly in indian wells when she beat chanda rubin in the quarters, the commentators even said she had a great first serve and that it set up alot of points from her

back in 2000 most of the women couldn't serve well aside from the obvious exceptions.
Elena gave away the set 7-5 after leading 5-3 :mad:
Get it together Elena!

But she had that shoulder problem
and she had to server with SLICE
cause dindt heart that match

then..as Pam said: "Become a bad habit" (server with slice)

omg back to back double faults to hand a love game to her opponent.
Same old Elena..

well her serve isn't always bad, and her second serve spin can cause some trouble

i did watch several matches of hers in 2000 (indian wells, us open, chase championships) and her serve was not a weapon -- unless you have incredibly low standards for calling a serve a weapon. :rolleyes: in fact, i distinctly remember commentators talking about how she had the habit of falling back on her serve. that's not a good thing.

ya I remember reading a post match article in 2000 that Elena lost an important match ( thought it was against VEnus) because of her bad serve. Her serve was always bad but she got away with it in 2000 because she was relatively new and players didn't know how she played or what to do with it. Besides, other women with weak serves were still at their high. ( anna, hingis, monica etc )

:mad: :mad: :mad:
I knew it, I knew it!
That is why I would never be a full-time dedicated Lena fan, she can do so much yet she folds too much when she should be winning easily :sad:

ok, my bad :o
I didn't read the result properly but still that girl can be so upsetting :wavey:

Szymanowski
Mar 13th, 2005, 11:32 PM
