Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend


If only she came up agressive and going for her shots, the match would have been more interesting.

Errani coach

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

I disagree.

Her tactics were just right, absolutely brillant.

But Serena is so much better that you could not see it.


But the tactics were right.

Doesn't matter what she did. Serena's weight of shot is too much for her. You can hear the difference on the strings.

Errani would lose it anyway, why spend energy when you have double final?

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

I thought she should have been a little more aggressive, but then she might have seen the ball whizzing by her into the court and out more often. Tough matchup for her.

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

was never going to out-hit serena,

only real hope was frustrating serena with her defense and capitalising on her becoming frustrated/missing. makes tactical sense to me

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

She only got aggressive in the end because Serena let her, if you see the final game she was missing a lot cause she doesn't have it in her to hit winners. She was just told to do her best game which is defense and against Serena that's the best tactic, because ti might annoy her and make her miss.

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

That would have meant giving Serena just enough pace -- Sara can't do more -- to make it easier to hit winners.

The only kind of aggressive shot that could have troubled Serena were Sara's occasional angled and heavily spun forehands. But she needed time to set those up and make them. Serena never let her have any, even when hitting at 80%, which is likely what Venus recommended.

Disagree.

Stosur wasnt going to outhit Serena last year, but she did.

Errani today, when she went for her shots, she hit winners.
She didnt take many risks returning Serena´s 2nd serves (because her tactic was to keep the ball in play and make Serena miss, which is obviously not going to happen when Serena is in a form like this, not enough to win at least) but when she did, she was winning.

Even Errani (who has a similar style to Stosur) can put pressure on Serena and go for her shots. She should have done that, try to come forward and attack with her forehand. Instead she decided to stick to 2 metres behind the baseline and wait for Serena to hit....... a winner

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

Wait!
There is a school of though that gave birth to this idea.

It was recently given new life and credibility by Ricardo Sanchez.
This school of thought argues, when playing Serena, you need to do everything possible to keep the rallies as long long as possible.


Taken to the extreme, some players would rather keep the rallies going than hit and winner where there is chance.
After all, the coach says, the longer the rally, the higher your chance is to win the point.

To these players, attempting to hit a winner is equivalent to take a chance, to hit a low percentage shots, something coaches also advise against.
So they opt for prolonging the rallies

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

Agree.

I mean, Sara was able to keep ball in play, but Serena even didn't have to run at all

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

what are you talking about, how you can be aggressive if your opponent's ball is twice faster? The only thing she could have done was o bit more of bh slices as serena doesn't like them, vinci could have won more games

Re: Wrong tactic: Errani´s coach told her to defend

That's a good tactic, get Serena into rallies were she typically can become frustrated. But there really was no chance, Errani does not have much pace on her shots so most of the time that won't hurt Serena.
