I say that because it really is bad enough that Elena Dementieva could make two grandslam finals in one year without a viable serve, but it would be horrendous if she actually won one. True, the rest of Elena's game is rock solid. True, she is in great physical shape and can run all day. However, it really is depressing that any player, man or woman, could be so successful at tennis without being able to hit the single most important shot in the game. The serve is that shot. The player's on the WTA tour should invest a lot more time in developing their serves. Not only would it be beneficial to them, but it would also be beneficial to the game in general.
