Most painful Sharapova fault

What kind of Maria Sharapova fault causes your insides to turn the most and your heart and gut wrench simultaneously?

1) The super long ones
2) The ridiculously wide ones
3) The ones that speed into the net and make that BEEEEEP sound coupled with the net slap

Re: Most painful Sharapova fault

It's less about location for me and more about timing.

The BP DF is a killer. 2nd serves on BPs are like a horror film, I can barely watch.

Re: Most painful Sharapova fault

Players work the serve differently. Some, like Venus, blast away on the first and just tap in the second. Others hit a weak first to avoid a second but, when they can't avoid it, hit it about 25 mph slower than the first.

Then there's Pova: all out on the first serve and all out on the second with vengence, as if in contempt of missing the first!

The whole idea behind having a separate, safe "second" serve is to avoid losing the point on a DF. Get the ball in play and rally for the point.

The concept of a safe second serve is really not part of Pova's mindset, so why does she bother with developing a second serve? I think she should play the second serve as a "do-over" and deliver another first serve!

Think of the advantages for Pova: she only has to practice first serves and during games she is always going with her best, most aggressive shot. A winning combination for Pova!

So I hate all the futsy second serve shots!

The ones she makes after a big comeback but that ultimately seal her fate. I was suicidal during that last game.

You know, when she's about to serve, but interrupts her routine. Adjusts her stance. Looks around. Tests her toss. Takes a deep breath and BOOOM! Double fault.

I close my eyes and make a sigh type noise like I have just been stung by something.

My other reaction is just to roll my eyes and put my hands up in the air

The point when she's engaged into the rally and you fear that she'll might end up throwing it into the net, and Boom she does that.

Into the net for sure. A girl of her height should not have such low clearance on a second serve for f*cks sake!

Re: Most painful Sharapova fault

I have to with with ones after long rallies. You know, the ones where she tries to hit a winner from the first shot on but it doesn't work, the rally goes on and on, she gets louder and with every shot you see the error coming. Doesn't matter then if she hits it wide or in the net so I'm not sure what to vote
