Re: Evolution of Maria's Game - 2004-2013

Even though her power has dropped, she still has prodigious pace and accuracy off both wings. The big problem (IMO) is that, even though her shots are weaker, they still give her SO MANY opportunities to come in on short balls with an aggressive approach and end the point there or with an easy volley...yet she NEVER does this anymore. That was something pre-ShoulderPova was great at and underrated for - she may not be a great volleyer, but she had a solid sense of coming in at the right times.
