The one thing about her serve that puzzled me, though, was that she rarely, if ever, exploited the benefits of a lefty slice serve out wide.
Brenda Schultz came around in the 90's a little bit afterwards. This was Monica in 1990. She was kind of like Venus. Great first but a lousy second. However, she would go for aces in the second serve around the 1992 and 1993.
