Can you guys remember how Laura was last year?! She's improved so much. very happy.

Pattaya Open next!
Sort of unrelated to tennis, but it's the same in cheer leading. A lot of power comes from the legs. If Laura's trying to generate as much power as she does with her upper body alone, it's no wonder she's injured herself twice after long matches in quick succession (the first was in Guangzhou where she spent the final and the rest of the Asian swing with a strapped shoulder). Also, is she did properly use her legs, she'd probably get some more power out of the serve. Win, win.

Also, she needs to do anything and everything to improve her second serve. Just terrible.
