Re: Is Maria's Ball Toss Too High?
I think it is too high. It could pose problems for Maria when she is playing tight. Also, when it's very windy or if the sun is directly above her, it could be very hard to hit a good delivery.
However, lowering her ball toss means altering her service action. I don't think she would be doing something that drastic.
Steffi Graf had an equally high if not higher ball toss, but she made it work. I'm sure Maria can do it as well.
I actually think Ivanovic has a worse problem because when she's tense, her ball toss tends to go further on the right (a la Capriati), making her chase for the ball.
