Bet you you're dead on right about the ball toss being behind it Gorecki So, IF I were Smartina, I'd send a message to Capriati by smacking some forehands early and see if double faults come my way. Hingis has to know Capriati will break her at least a few times-so the key may well be Capriati's serve. I'm looking forward to a good final.
Capriati's serve is very predictable. The ball toss is always to the right and the result is a lot of slice in the serve. This is very true on the second serve especially. But it appears that Capriati can serve flat sometimes as well, so Martina should not think the all the serves will go a certain way, cause it won't. Even though Capriati's serve may be predictable, it is not really attackable due to the depth and pace. So I guess Martina can attempt to make deep good returns and continue from there
