Her backhand is getting worse. She's hitting off of the back foot all the time, instead of stepping in and being aggresive with it. This causes her to be off-balance and miss a lot of easy backhands.

Improve, Sveta. Just keep improving.

Her backhand seemed pretty solid to me

Too many wild forehands, she was missing by yards too

True but Justine's backhand was hardly in full flow either.

That's because her strokes are really awkward. They produce a lot of power, but they are far from fluid. That means a lot can go wrong, and a lot often does.

well it is kind of common amongst most tennis players, since the forehand is focused on so much. Not too many players have a weapon with their backhand.

Irrealis moods are the set of grammatical moods that indicate that something is not actually the case. Simply put, they are any verb or sentence moods that are not realis moods. They may be part of expressions of necessity, possibility, requirement, wish or desire, fear, or as part of counterfactual reasonings, etc.

Irrealis verb forms are used when speaking of an event which has not happened, is not likely to happen, or is otherwise far removed from the real course of events. For example, in the sentence "If you had done your homework, you wouldn't have failed the class.", had done is an irrealis verb form.

Some languages have distinct grammatical forms that indicate that the event described by a specific verb is an irrealis verb. Many of the Indo-European languages preserve a subjunctive mood that functions as an irrealis; some also preserve an optative mood that describes events that are wished for or hoped for but not present.
