Re: Sania is improving BUT NOT beating the top players yet
When it came to Sania losing today it had nothing to do with her serve.
It had more to do with her lack of a gameplan.
A lot of player's strengths have become a weakness for them against Chakvetadze.
One in particular is the forehand crosscourt.
It's impossible to outhit Chakvetadze with that shot but regardless many players will try to do so anyway, Petrova, Mirza, Venus.
You have to use variety to disrupt her game.
You have to mix up deep shots with angled short shots.
Justine, Hingis, and oddly Sharapova seem to understand this and this is why they have done well against her.
Mirza needs more variety for her shot selection in a rally.
If she can do that then it will be easier for her to come and finish off points at net.
