The fact that she's trying to change her service motion is a good sign...after all, when Justine changed hers at the beginning of 2002 she lost a lot of matches in a row, but eventually it worked out.

Yeah, at least give Elena some time and credit for willing to make an effort to improve out of it. She's got the height anyway, technique can be learnt with practice. She did serve some aces in that match too...
