Struggling Errani invents new serve

The struggles of Sara Errani with the serving yips since she returning from serving her doping suspension have been well documented.

But when she has served underhand over the last few months, it’s been the typical almost dropshot-like, sliced and very slow serve.


She has gotten a lot of hate. Like it’s a … choice.

But as she takes on an ITF clay swing in South America, Errani has come up with a brilliant new twist: she’s backing off the baseline, and mixing in a swinging topspin volley into the serve box.

Hard times call for creative measures. Gutsy.
