Her placement is very good and it has to be good because she has much less power than Caro who doesn't have to do anything but hitting the ball very deep.
I think that when Aga tries to create something, hit harder or change the rotation (which she does very rarely) she makes unforced errors.

I don't think that hitting harder would work for her, but her shot placement is something else. Shot placement + variety is what made her as good as she's been during this season, IMO.

I know it may be unpopular opinion but her variety is a myth. I always point the fact that she doesn't use top spin at all. What's worse, it looks like she was not learned how to do this. I remember her coach once commented on this, saying that she plays almost everything with the same grip. That's actually why she prefers to go for an inside out forehand rather than cross-court when she stands in the middle of the court.

She's a tiny player, she can't produce spin at all IMO.

When I say that there's variety in her game, I meant that she has remarkable defensive skills, she's fast, her slice is very good, but she can also attack, finish the point with volleys, lobs or drop shots. And she's not only getting the balls back, the balls that are coming back from her are not easy to attack at all, it looks like players have no idea what to do with that.

She could have learned that. You can see what she does with the ball when she plays lobs. She can't actually play a decent lob from the baseline.

I never noticed that her slice does any damage. It's not that deep and penetrating as it should be. Some of her volleys are good. Drop shots are not effective at all. I don't know if playing a lot of drop shots and slices means that she has variety in her game. I wouldn't say so.

I agree on this. Players often don't expect where the ball is actually going to land. She's great at playing with no pace, so it usually depends on what kind of shot her opponent played before.

In order to hit with proper topspin, she would have to add muscles, I'm not sure how it would affect her game. It worked for Errani though.

It all worked very well in the end of 2011, but in 2012 those parts of her game have regressed, just like her fh, apart from Wimbledon. In Wimbledon her slices, volleys and fh were very well. And her serve works much better on grass, slice serve especially (for obvious reasons).

Re: Tennis Muttering Thread - vol2

I just read that JJ has never served a 100 mph fast serve! Some people should be banned only because of their ignorance.

She should do that anyway.

And I have to say if she would play with more spin on her forehand I'm quite sure she wouldn't have these multiple right arm injuries she had in the last years. These are clearly stress injuries that are caused by her forehand technique.

Yeah, the only thing she developed since that time is her serve.

It could've easily been a mistake that she was trying to hit her fh as flat as possible, it was effective tho, but she got injured and during this season her fh was progressively getting worse. Now it's as loopy as it was before the end of last season. Adding spin could work, but it's risky also.

Dear God, the amount of grammar errors I make in my posts is not even funny. Those sweet native speakers who post here (Brady, Cilla etc.) should stop being so annoyingly polite and correct me now and then.

It would work but I don't think she can really change that at this age. And I think her coach is aware of that as I heard some of his comments. I blame her father for that. Playing with spin is more natural than hitting flat and it increases the margin of error, so no risk is taken.

I point that fact because that's one of the main reasons why I actually think she has no variety in her game. I call it a myth, just like the supposed beauty of Henin's game and Federer being a gentleman.

If you spoke French since you were born, your French might be much better than you think it is (if it was her first language).
