GD, Elena and her mother are 2 very stubborn Russians. You are right about her serve getting worse. :mad: Her serve wasn't a major problem in 1999 and 2000. But now it's a disaster! :eek:

Elena was briefly working with Eric Van Harpen. But nothing came of that. She needs a good coach her get get her to take a step back and re-make her serve. It would help if she actually bent her knees a little on her serve to take some pressure off her beleagured right arm and shoulder. But right now she just has an arm serve. Which naturally causes arm problems. Elena often shakes out her right arm like it's bothering her. Of course it's bothering her. It's an arm serve.

I don't mind a slice serve. But Elena's slice second serve is so soft it sometimes throws off her opponents. But a big girl like Dementieva should not have such a lightweight serve. :(
