Why isnt she attempting to come to the net more is beyond me!!!
Slicing is a much less consistent play in the wind, the ball will float long a ton or sit up, topspin is the key in wind, or just pounding the heck out of the ball like MAria is doing.ACE of Hearts said:Mauresmo should be slicing the ball more, why isnt she doing it?Especially with windy conditions.
it's tough in the wind. but that slice to the sharapova forehand is working when she mixes it up with the loopy top. she just has to keep mixing it up to the forehand side. to be honest, sharapova hasn't done all that much the whole match. it's not like she's bashed mauresmo off the court.ACE of Hearts said:yesssssssssssssss, Amelie!!!!!!!!I told her, keep using the slice, she needs to keep using it!!!!
That's what I was thinking, and it's not like she gets much on it when she does itskip1969 said:why is everybody so impressed when sharapova switches hands like that. it just means she's lazy. mcenroe is right, she should just work on a one-handed slice backhand to get back in the point.
