I remember her match vs. Radwanska in Melbourne this year in which you could just tell by the ball toss that she was about to hit a DF. Her shot selection has gotten quite awful.
Before she didn't really need to think about shot selection because it was all "SERVE, BAM BAM, POINT OVER". Now it's "SERVE - OH IT'S IN? - OH CRAP, NEED TO RALLY. BACKHAND BOTTOM OF NET." Sad really.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.

Yes, that's what happens when you play the style that isn't natural to you. Her main weapons are not what they used to be, so she's trying to play like Vika, even like Aga. It may work against scrubs, but her reflexes, footspeed, clumsiness and poor anticipation are the reasons why she'll never be competitive against top players with that style. Vika and Aga make her look brainless. It's like when a defensive players try to play aggressive, they usually look clueless.

pazek didn't even look like a top-100 player. with her poor form i think her scheduling is very bad. she should be playing midland and memphis instead of the big tourneys..
