After her shoulder surgery she lost most of her confidence, even now it is quite evident with the number of double faults she makes, when is nervous. The most sad thing is one can easily predict when she is going to make a double fault, when ever some one stands inside the base line for her second serve she commit a double fault, when there is a wind she commits a double fault, when there is sun she commits a double etc. I want Martina Hingis in her box coaching her rather than in Anastasia's box
