@cosmoose @pov @Excelscior

While her peak serve speed (which is what the twitter link showed) has dropped from Roland Garros 2011 to RG 2016, the average speed looks less different (so I guess her serve speeds are more consistent now?), while the % won is quite close.

Average 1st serve speed:

RG 2011 - Arn/Zheng/King/Li: 166/155/156/167
RG 2016 - Kovinic/Hsieh/Rogers: 161/159/157

Average 2nd serve speed:

RG 2011 - Arn/Zheng/King/Li: 144/138/143/145
RG 2016 - Kovinic/Hsieh/Rogers: 144/144/144

1st serve won %:

RG 2011 - Arn/Zheng/King/Li: 77/70/56/58
RG 2016 - Kovinic/Hsieh/Rogers: 71/76/56

2nd serve won %:

RG 2011 - Arn/Zheng/King/Li: 48/47/55/46
RG 2016 - Kovinic/Hsieh/Rogers: 44/57/40

Data from Matchstat for 2011 and the Roland Garros site for 2016.

Sure. But the crazy thing if you analyze Petra: She has both consistent, and inconsistent patterns of situational futility (and you guys know what I mean). I.e.: She keeps finding different ways to lose (along with the well known, established patterns). LOL

So sometimes, it appears hard to pinpoint. I wonder if the situational stats (you mention) would render the same conclusion of our frustrated memories?...

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

Considering the mess Petra's been the past few years in so many areas. Is it even worth the deep thought to try to pin point why her averaged serve speeds declined the past several years?

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

Since, lovely Petra's had the commitment of a Part Time Tennis Player since 2013 (where do we start/when does it end). It's only fair (for those that choose to go that route), that her "fans" become part time observers/fans as well.

Makes sense!?...This is especially true, when you consider the unrelenting shock/heartache/frustration/disappointment, etc., factor you mentioned!!??

It's bad enough Petra plays when ever she feels like it (and whatever silly excuses she can come up with). In addition, she's had arguably the worst team (for sure), and preparation regimen of any top 10 player in a loooooong time!?

So those are the results, despite the blinding talent. It is what it is!
