Re: Maria's one handed BH slice
This is a shot I mentioned that she needed to put in her game to stay above the curve.
You cannot play a left handed defensive shot all the time when you can make things easier for you with a slice.
She's playing great defense for such a tall girl. She's serving well.
And if you also haven't noticed she is putting a lot of variety in her shot selection.
She put some spin on some shots, she flattened some, the slice is working and it's a wicked one, she's hitting true volleys, and coming to net with her swining volley whenever she sees the opportunity to.
I have to say she's the first player I ever seen who might drop in the rankings (because of Venus) whose shown such immense growth in her game.
