Service call perhaps but Anna is a pretty acurate with her court diamension with her strokes its just the net which is the problem, as Virginia Wade once said "I sympathise with the problem of htting over the net it is a real obsactle in the middle of the court".

I think the question is, should the WTA move the net five feet towards her to help her hold serve???

She probably blinds line judges already with her radiant beauty

How do you know she has not already tried this? Evert was accused of flashing her panties to get favorable calls. If Evert can (apparently) sway calls with her flashes, certainly Anna can do the same.

No. You either fix her serve or allow her a body double to serve for her,

What can they do when Anna doesn't reach the net on her serve?
