Her having a mental block against Serena is not the same as not giving it a 100%. She is, and I'm sure that she is as frustrated about it as any of us, probably more so in fact.
And as much I appreciate your lovely post I for one am equally frustrated. - It's one thing to lose a match or a final - but a whole different thing to fear an opponent that much that you become paralyzed and can't compete and her "arm is like a swan's neck - so weak" - It is time for Masha and her coach to recognize that the losses to Serena lies not in lack of tennis skills - It is not a matter of how to improve her FH or BH or whatever but a mental issue and IF they wanna solve the problem - since Serena won't disappear any time soon - then they should treat it as such - Hire a sport psychologist which can have daily sessions with her and who maybe is able to get to the root of her problem. Finding the why is the first step in resolving the "Serena problem"
