And yes, I agree that she lost power when she started losing on weight, but her FH is still one on the Tour IMO.
Wasn't there a bad thumb injury after Wimbledon 2008,or am I remembering things incorrectly?

I remember her losing the toss badly against Henin in the RG final. Put it down to nerves but perhaps there was a deeper problem?
