A Question About JenCap?

I was watching the re-run of Scottsdale today, and has anyone else noticed that Jen when playing hr BH releases her left hand really quickly, this must give her little control, has anyone else noticed this.

I think she just hits it with so much power that her hand just lets go early from the force. Maybe she loses accuracy, I don't know. But I think in general she has good accuracy with her BH I think.

her backhand is Uuugggly!! It looks like she's about to fall on her side everytime she makes that shot!

Ugly or not-its damn effective, even if it isn't her "killer" side. As a two-hander myself, I'd say there are as many variations with it as there are on one hands. I notice Jen slices her two-hander more than most, which also probably means releasing the other hand at least a bit.

Jennifer also was influenced by Evert, so as far as stroke production goes, Jennifer's backhand is nothing like Venus or Lindsay .. where the left hand is extremely important.
