Re: New Low for Poor Guille

This is just incredible...when he has gotten his 2nd serve in, he has won almost all of the points. It's amazing that he can win so many games serving like that.

Bascially for him, his return game is like everyone else's serve game. Returning serve gives him the best chance to actually win games. This is crazy.

Re: New Low for Poor Guille

The serve is just inexplicably bad. Does his shoulder still give him preoblems?

He should serve underarm then, that way at least he'll have the ball in play with a chance to win the point, because right now...

Re: New Low for Poor Guille

Even if everything is wrong, can't you just spin the thing in at say 55 mph? That gives you a better chance than hitting 14 DF's. Who does that??!! Futures players and juniors don't even do that. Some hack out on the public courts can do better than that?

I agree totally. He really is the men’s version of Dementiava (although she is improving). The rest of his game has to bolster up his totally craptacular serve game.
I am just wondering though what the heck is going on with Guille’s serving. It was not like this before his surgeries. But I really think that this whole serve thing is more psychological as opposed to physical. He should see a sports psychologist and/or maybe go under some hypnosis. There definitely seems to be a mental block there. Because frankly stuff like today with the double faults when serving out a set are painful to watch.

I like a lot of players.

I agree - he should atleast spin it in considering this is clay court and smacking a winner off a weaker serve is relatively hard. I find his tactical game

Need ideas for a new signature...

He is trying to spin it in. He is hardly serving rockets out there..
