Even Richard Williams said Serena was the better player. Ana said the same thing at the AO, that because she had beaten Venus, she had faith she could beat Serena and we saw it happen.

Its less about tanking more about the mentality. Serena just saw her big Sista get to the finals who has been struggling with Sjögren's syndrome for sometime now. She knows that she will be expected to go play and beat her sister in the final and all she has to do it beat a player she has no business losing to in Alize Cornet. Its easy to understand why she would be flat. I dont believe she even knew why she was making so many errors and this further frustrated her. Did you see the last game. lol After all that fight to stay in the match she makes four straight errors to lose the match I mean come on. I think subconsciously she didn't want to win.

What? How? Why???

Serena was a total error-machine at the worst times and she never found that extra gear. She showed signs, saving those match-points, but, overall, a very sluggish and sloppy effort. Stunning.

I'm not going to be one of those people that buys into the baseless theory that she played so poorly because she wasn't looking forward to playing Venus in the final. If anything, Venus' triumph should have inspired her to win so she could be on the court with her and celebrate, win or lose, the amazing form and accomplishments of Venus in 2014. Another all-Williams final at this stage in their careers would have been another great chapter and I know Serena would always welcome that opportunity.

So I believe Serena was motivated. But she just didn't have anything out there today and that's shocking. Maybe the back still isn't right or an ankle or something else she didn't let on about. That just wasn't Serena.

And I have to acknowledge the steady, clean play of Cornet. She never got rattled and she stayed positive and stuck to her game plan. You can't beat yourself when playing Serena, gifting errors and having a negative attitude. And Alize played a near perfect match against the Serena that was out there.

It's weird to see Serena and Venus's rolls reversed here in Dubai. Serena looked like the Venus of the past few years, erroring herself out of the tournament and Venus looked like the Serena we've seen, being calm, confident, and dominating with her pace and smart play.

EPIC TANK JOB so big sister can stay undefeated in Dubai

Cornet played the perfect match to frustrate Serena. She stayed behind the baseline to receive serve, stayed long enough in the rallies hitting the ball consistently deep & waiting for the right ball

Serena was too impatient, lacked movement, ROS very poor, Alize won more 2nd serve pts than Serena

Nah, if you watched Serena's first two matches she was hitting to many errors. It's good she played this week to see what she needs to work on for Miami. Cornet was consistent enough and it just wasn't Serena's day. No big deal, it's her first week back since the AO so the loss isn't surprising.

Re: Dubai SF: Alize GOATnet routines Serena Williams 6-4 6-4

Serena DID NOT tank the match. Hell, why did she have to enter into the tournament and fly way to Dubai just to tank a match for Venus, when ALL SHE HAD TO DO WAS STAY HOME. That doesn't make sense. Serena was NOT moving her feet and for the first time Cornet was able to keep the ball DEEP and make Serena run from side-to-side.

Have to agree. Felt like that at the start of this match when she displayed complete lethargy from the first few points of the first game.
I even stopped the stream at that point to watch anime. Don't like watching when she plays that way.
The motivation seems kinda iffy lately. Hope this is a short-lived habit and also that there are no injuries.

Re: Dubai SF: Alize GOATnet routines Serena Williams 6-4 6-4

OMG!



Alizé's problem is breath: if she can hold up long rallies even she's on the verge of collapse, what she could do if she breathe as good as well? Is for this that I had predicted her victory over Serena, because it was clear that she had coached a lot breathing well these days.
