Better in some ways, worse in others. She's definitely a better mover than ever before, and I'm inclined to say her backhand at points this claycourt season was better than it ever was pre-surgery? She barely missed off it at all the whole time. And her tactical/strategic sense is definitely better.

That said, her forehand is still a fair bit worse than before surgery, her serve while much improved recently still probably isn't as reliable as it was pre-surgery, and her nerve while still formidable isn't quite as rock-solid as it used to be.
