How do you get seles/bartoli like angles?

I used to be able to hit em, but now I can only hit to the middle of the court. How do I get my fierce,deep, or sometimes short cross court angles back.

I still take the ball early, but it doesnt go where I want it to go where I want it to go.

I don't know how Seles got hers, but it has been reported several times, during Bartoli matches, that her father-coach employed some unorthodox techniques, bordering on child abuse to get Bartoli to master the art of angling the ball.

Hmm hitting an angle has nothing to do with hitting the ball early. Hit the ball at its highest use topspin and hit in front of you.
