I get the impression that Laura is more on her heels than at the tail end of last year.
Totally agree with this,and tbh it's not as though I really see her moving well at the beginning of a match and fading, as though she can't sustain the effort. It's not there at the beginning either.

One thing is for sure, you don't get strong abs, quads & calves from practicing tennis all day - only targeted exercise routines will bring Laura back to where she was last October.
I'd be very surprised if she isn't doing specific workouts for these areas in the gym, you'd certainly expect it for a professional tennis player.
