not necessarily, she has to make her strengths stronger. I am a firm believer in surviving your weaknesses and strengthening you strenghts.
If venus works on her strenghts like the serve,movement,net game and bh, then her forehand won't be such a liablity.
Everyone talks about dementieva's serve, but really that is not what got her to the slam finals last year, but the rest of her game did. Her losses were more mental than serve related, loss of confidence equals wayward serve. I have said before, she beat better player, better returners than the players she lost to. consider this who can best exploit her serves than jen, lindsay and amelie.
serena's biggest prob. are errors but she doesn't dwell on them, she works on the rest of her strenghts, that gives a better result.
alicia has a fantastic serve and a great forehand, strengthening this will only make her better.
