Henin didn't need a first serve because she was lightning quick and her motion was really simple to begin with. Maria takes much more time finishing her motion and isn't nearly as good a mover as Henin was, so if someone pummels her serve she'll be completely off balance for the remainder of the rally (unless she's playing a pusher).
Maria REALLY needs a great 1st serve.
