True.. her forehand was out of this world... now it's a good shot, but not as lethal. I guess the confidence or lack of it shows in the way she hits her forehand.. she is just hitting it with a lot less conviction now.

You are right Luca.. some of the issues were already there, but she was strong enough to overcome them. Now it seems that they are stronger and she can't cope with it. It's all mental.. she needs to be able to be in control again.
