Which would indeed imply that for the last two years, Maria has been (on average, and only just) the player least able to control her aggressive play at the slam level
Maria has hundreds of fans on this forum so don't expect this forum to admit that her ballbashing is even more brainless than that of Petra and Li in spite of the hard statistics
As you can see from additional posts, the myth continues, with people putting Li and Petra ahead of Maria
BTW, I think some netplay statistics (net points / net attempts) might be also interesting.
