As all of you know, Makiri is lacking that one big weapon that the other girls have in their game.:sad: Of course, if beauty could kill, she would win all the tourneys she entered!!!:lol: Seriously though, if you could just pick ONE weapon or attribute, what would it be???:scratch:
a) Big Forehand
b) Big Backhand
c) Big Serve
d) Strong Return of Serve
e) Physical Stamina/Strength
f) Mental Toughness
g) Foot Speed

Where would consistency fall? Under mental toughness or other?

I'll go with serve. It is the WTA after all :p
Look at what having a big serve does for players like Serena, Venus, Pova (uninjured) and Ana (when she was good)

I voted mental. I think that would help her win a lot of close matches where she just kind of falls apart.

Mental toughness for sure. Always felt it was the main thing holding her back.

i was gonna vote for mental toughness, but then i reckon if she had a bigger/better serve, and she'd win some more points and rallys then it would def help with her confidence and perhaps her mental toughness

If she had a bigger serve she'd probably just df on big points without mental toughness :lol:

Mental toughness for me. She'll never be a ballbasher, but I don't think she lacks the power to compete with top players. She could maybe improve her forehand a bit from what I've seen, but really her game is good on a technical level.

I picked mental toughness also. I believe if Makiri has the right POSITIVE mindset everytime she steps onto the court, she could overcome the weaknesses she has in her game.

Physical atribute ! :help:

I chose mental toughness because Makiri has always lacked mental toughness and that has cost her so many matches in her career. :(
