I'll never forget how easily Justine beat Jie at the AO, and all she did was just hit a few slices, heaver forehands then just moved forward when she inevitably got a short reply.
Justine was also capable of hitting he ball in the court, something Sam seems to have forgotten.
You're right. Less spin & more depth is the key imo. Zheng is like having hitting practice because every ball sits up.
