... It's really good today!

(Here's hoping I don't tempt fate for the rest of the match.)

It's like she's taken overnight magic serving pills or something.

80% and only one double at the business end of the first set. It is weird.

The left handed defensive shot was pretty nice too!

Just average IMO.

It's a process. Try to teach a QB how to throw the ball differently than they have their whole life. Or a pitcher to deliver his pitches differently than he has his whole life. True sports fans/athletes realize the type of process it is. There will be hot streaks and there will be cold streaks, until she completely adjusts or adapts to this serving motion. Hell I'll admit I'm not even used to it after watching Maria for so many years. It looks funky to me as a fan because I'm so used to her normal serving motion.

At the end of Set 1, 75% with 1 ace and 1 double. That's really good. :drool: It's serving stats like that where you think "oh, she's going to be fine", but then she throws in like 17 DFs in her next match. :lol:
