Marions stance on the return is one of the major reasons why she has done so well. She is not that fast, and having two hands on both sides doesnt help. She needs to rob the server of time in order to get herself into position.
Yes other players could try this stance, against any player. (everything always has to do with the WS)But you have to have impeccable timing to consistently take the ball on the rise and not let it get too high on you.
If Marion can work out the kinks in her serve and work on her footspeed, I think she can have a great future.
For those of u have never seen her before, she usually stands much closer to the service line than she did today.
