How eerie/sad is it that Monica got stabbed exactly 4 years after winning her first career title?

She worked on her serve and had great speed. Consistency was just not there until she got stabbed concerning her percentage. But it did create fear like Venus Williams did years later. In that, players couldn't hug the service lines much on first serves like they did back then and now to lesser players. Second service, well?
