Yeah I think it was hard for her to switch from her claycourt gameplan so quickly for Wimbledon, and I agree that she needs to take some more risks on her groundstrokes. Her match against Kerber in Beijing I think is a perfect example of the way Maria should play on hardcourts. Patience when necessary, but still going for angles and taking advantage of opportunities
