Are we really still talking about 2009? Her shoulder has been 100% for years now and she's had plenty of time to adjust to the serving motion she's currently using. There's really no reason to have these serving meltdowns anymore. Unless, we all have to accept she has the yips and her serving will always be a huge psychological burden she has to deal with until she retires. Like Dementieva.

And if that's the case, she's going to struggle to win any tournament of any kind because, at this high a level of competition and the way her game is constructed, she just can't have a serve that's more of a liability than it is a weapon. She won those clay titles last year because her serve was a tremendous weapon once again for a brief, glorious time. But her serve hasn't been the same since then and it's no surprise she has 0 titles since the French.

Actually, she made some slight alternations for this season. And we can't know how her shoulder feels. She can't apparently hit good consecutive kick serves, which usually means that a player can't feel the ball properly, and if that's the case, there's nothing she can do about that. I do believe that part of it is psychological, but the injury and the surgery took a big toll on that serve. Look at Rafa. Even if his knees were to be at a 100% (which they aren't and probably never will be again), he will always have it in the back of his mind, should I run to that ball, what if I _____ again? I think that's the case with Maria as well, understandably. That's probably why she hits a proper smash so rarely and why she always stubbornly goes for the same serves, even though they are so predictable.

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. QF v Stosur

Don't see why everyone's stressing out so much tbh. You're telling me Crapova beat an opponent who brings out the worst of her 3 and 3, and on a windy day? Good result.

^ this
to "win ugly" is one of the best things to do, watch what Vika did at AO: played like crap all the tournament but managed to get through everything, through dfs (9 ) etc.
of course we'd always like to see her play hitting line after line and ace after ace, but what matters in the end is the result, there will be better days

Re: GOATpova returns to stay undefeated in Doha. QF v Stosur

I don't think she played THAT bad yes she made a few more mistakes than we'd liked but that's understandable she always does when it's windy. I'm thinking that blip from 3-1 was because at first she lost focus started making a few more mistakes and than panicked a bit which isn't helpful usually, but she managed to pull it together in the end. this things happen :shrugs: What bothered me more was those drive volleys they were just She often says it's one of her favorite shots...So then WTH Maria??? But on the other hand I think she's trying to move to the net more often lately than last year so I guess that if she continues to do so there's bound to be an improvement
