Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

For the match, she made 97% of her first serves. The first set was 100%. Say what you want about vulturing (even though she's defending her title) this tournament and her gamestyle but those numbers are very impressive!

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

Brace yourselves, comments similar to "with that weak serve there is nothing impressive about those numbers" are coming

Anyway I agree, props for that. At least she tries to be consistent!

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

Quite probably indeed played the first serve like a 2nd serve because she knew that there's nothing at all to be afraid of with Cornet's return.

Still, as we all know even trying to place 85kph serves in the middle of the box can be problematic for some WTA players. Not so for our miniature italian and she deserves massive credit for that.

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

If I remember correctly, her 1st serve in % is always the highest one among current players. So good for her, considering that her 1st serve is already not strong, she really doesn't want to hit an even weaker serve for her opponents to attack.

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

Even if the serve is weak, that's incredibly impressive to be so consistent… most WTA players struggle to get second serves in . She still won the majority of the first serve points too and the one second serve point she had to play .

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

True, I always thought she was around 75% 1st serves usually, which is of course really high already, but she's had quite a few matches in which she served at 85 or more this season on hard courts already.

Still, surely in a single tournament she can't serve 94% twice in earlier rounds and now today 97% without taking anything off at all, right? If the statskeepers do their jobs....

Yeah I mean Errani always has those crazy high first serve percentages, it's amazing.

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

Are those serves weaker than ever? This high serve percentage only reminds me Cohen's serve...

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

Serena got 100% of first serves in during the 2nd set of her 2001 USO match against Hingis. When you consider the flatness and overall rackethead speed of Serena's serve, that's a much better accomplishment than just consistently spinning in serves

So what? She would not win a single game even with such a high percentage against Sharapova, Serena or Vika.

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

not really impressed till last year she served always around 75/80% but this year she's always over 90% and this means she's not even trying anymore to put a decent serve in

Players who don't serve doublefaults usually put their 2nd serves in 100% of times too. Soo impressive, considering the similar speed and threat level. And them being the 2nd serves instead of 1st make more pressure, too.

Re: Errani Has 97% First Serves versus Cornet

The facts that she served 97% and broken 3 times and only won 57 percent of those 97% says a lot about her serve. It's a spin serve in the middle of the box. And barely do you find players that hits a spin serve in the middle of the box, if she misses that serve that is embarrassing.
