yup...and I noticed her getting better and better at this "two first serves" tactic, which she was employing for quite some time now. I feel like this high risk/high reward tactic will determine her career from now on - if she manages to control her serve for prolonged periods of time, plenty of slams on all surfaces will follow too. Because Maria NEEDS to be confident on serve for her game to flourish in all it's blazing glory. Serve is the well from which she's seeping her powers afterall
