Why make drastic changes? Why put yourself in this situation without going with your best stuff?
Its almost like she planned to ruin her career. That decision to give away her consistency makes no sense now, and made no sense then

She's not gonna win slams by hugging the baseline or winning small, peripheral tournaments.
