It can be effective, I suppose. If you use Errani as an example. 85% 1st serves in and a 1st serve, which is not more than a 'putting in play' ball.
Maybe for Caro, just getting 1st serves in, could actually improve her over-all game? Not being weighed down by the pressure of having to hit a hard, flat unreachable 1st serve, she can relax and play points better?
It's a theory at least.
