Well, I guess the truth is that especially on grass Serena is in a different league from everyone else and some step onto the court afraid that the're going to be humiliated. Serena's serve is such a formidable weapon that as a result it also puts more pressure on their own service games because they know that one service game lost means bye bye to the set. Caro - at her best she can give Serena a good match, but not on a grasscourt. Vika was disappointing though, I must say. I didn't expect her to win it, but I thought she would at least have made a match out of it. I expect Maria to do better. I don't expect her to beat Serena, but she's playing very well and she has guts, which is something you definitely need against Serena.
