Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

A drop in first-serve percentage from 68% in the first set to 42% in the second seems to indicate that something is up.

I didn't watch the match so I',m just going by the stats. The third was back up to 62% but that only makes me wonder if she just pushed through some pain/discomfort.

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

Oh my god please stop being paranoid about her serve. She wouldn't have played when she's not healthy to be on court. Just her first serve % dropped didn't mean her shoulder is acting up. This observation feels like your new to the game. If she's hitting 20 DF in this match then I would have agreed.

Wow. Speechless. I posted this here instead of GM because I wanted to avoid crazy responses. Silly me. Anyone who thinks a drop like that in serve percentage after cruising through a set is normal really has no business questioning anyone's tennis acumen.

BTW It's "you're." "Your" is a possessive.

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

I am not sure I have to say from maria's body language today and play I was a bit suspicious. Hopefully it was just a bad day in the office and I'm just over analysing/worrying

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

to me it looked like she was in pain or a lot of discomfort in the second set when her first serve percentage went down. the only reason she got it back up in the third set is cause she started using kick serves for her first services.

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

she broken 3 or 4 i forgot.
if maria felt something bad with her body, she must take medical treatment like in wimbledon 2013.
but she didnt..
so, stop making speculation unscientific just from stat.
just because her serve didnt well in 2nd set, it doesnt mean her shoulder got problem.
so many thing when player didnt serve well. in Maria case she's not focus.

yeah i was going to add at the end of my post that at the end of the day only maria knows how her shoulder is, etc, and there's not much point speculating about it.

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

If Maria's shoulder is problematic again there's no way she'll play through it at all this time so soon after a scare like last year's. Until she withdraws/retires we have to assume it's OK or we could be constantly paranoid. Especially when there aren't even any medical timeouts.

All that said it wouldn't surprise me if her shoulder was tired having gone from relatively minimal consistent matchplay at the start of the year to a few grueling 3-setters and deep runs lately. I'd be happy to see her tank, in a way, to Sam (who could do with the boost and will still have a huge deficit in the H2H), but it'll hurt her draw for RG and I do sort of love her clay winning streak against everyone but Serena..

Stupid Madrid...

Re: Is Sharapova's shoulder acting up?

I refuse to blame the shoulder everytime Maria plays a bad match.
If her shoulder is to blame we probably won't find out for months to come, since Maria is hardly forthcoming with her injuries.

That being said. Her winning % on her first and second serve where both above 50% today, not to mention she was only broken twice, and through the entire match she kept her double faults down.
