What do you think would be Serena Williams chances against a top 10 ATP player today if he were only given one serve and she were allowed to hit into the doubles alleys? And I'm talking about the standard sized doubles alleys and not the half sized ones in the video above. Do you think she'd be able to run away with at least a set?
Eh, possible. That rule really hurts the guys.
But if it's Isner or Federer....
Those guys would probably hold easy even with only one serve.
