Simply elated. Loved how Serena adjusted to the form she found *today* and switched to her version of the Sampras/Steffi game plan: assertively hold serve while finding a way to reign in the return...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 101

Sigh. Venus could have taken advantage of a nervy Kerber and gotten a much-meeded 1st set. Now she may have helped Angie settled in with that last point.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 101

Actually that was 50% Kerber up until this year -- getting this out of her system for entire matches was one reason why she won AO 2016.

Re: Wimbledon SF: [1] Serena Williams def. Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-0.

Not much to add to the summary below. Except there were times out there she seemed a combination of her 2002, 2009 and 2013 selves. An amazing feat in itself.



Love, also, how she managed her...

Garbine played excellently. She was the one with the controlled aggression on every point. Hitting out at 80-90% and 2-3 inches from each line. Championship stuff through and through. And I like her...

Serena knows Muguruza's game and tactics well, so it's rather clear how to get winners past her, force errors, neutralize the Davenport play down the middle, and make her hit lower-and-lower...

Re: RG QF: Serena def. Putintseva 57 64 61

Loved watching that fight from Serena. Winning through bad patches is a near necessity nowadays for a slam. She came through that in Graf-like fashion, with grit, intelligence, pressuring play, and a...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol 99

Great to watch Serena fighting out there -- winning playing badly is a near necessity to win a slam so let's do this.

Very good test for our Baby. An opponent not afraid of her serve our groundies. Plus a rain delay and a tiebreak saving set point. Excellent prep, path to build toward a 2nd week peak.

Like that...

Nice, nice, Baby Sis. Building quite nicely. Back to calmly managing the expected dips in form. Confidence in being able to win (and adapt, adjust, think through matters) with her B+ game and in...

Serve has been honed back into place. But more importantly movement and point construction were alert, supple and decisive. Yummy stuff, Baby Sis. You're clearly back to loving the details of...

Re: Capriati gives in on Pova's ban

We love JenCap because she never knew how to stay on the high road. Always dragging -- before the term became chic. Would drag Serena's level way down any opportunity she could. Made for drama on the...

Re: Do you believe Sharapova did not read a list of newly banned substances?

Same here. I feel Maria wouldn't simply keep taking a drug she knew was banned and go for a regular, expected test during a Slam. But I also feel she's keeping quiet about her long-time knowledge of...

Re: Australian Open Final '16: (7) Angelique Kerber STUNS (1) Serena Williams 6-4 3-6

No excuses. Kerber had to play well, fight well, and continue to believe she could win in order to actually win this final. In the 1st set, after a few brilliantly angled shots, she was smart to...

Serena, anytime you get into a rally: clean hard deep hitting with margin. Test Angie.
