Queen Serena is basically a new player now. She doesn't go for too much on her groundies but picks her spots and pulls the trigger only when necessary which results in less UE. I also like the fact that she doesn't track down every freakin' ball, which will make her play longer on tour and win more majors. She will at least reach 18 this year IMO.
The new Serena has:
1. Better serve than ever due to less speed but better placement and higher pecentage.
2. More intelligent on court.
---She is obviously slower but the positives outweigh the negative.
Sloane unfortunately will lose against the GOAT Serena in two easy sets.
American tennis is pretty much alive.
