Apart from her forehand, other areas she should be working on:
1) The predictable serving patterns
2) Her hesitance to hit BHDTL
3) Over-thinking/ anxious mindset

For example the serve speed. Maria never before had so powerful serve. Why is she not using it regularly is a question of tactics, not of ability.
The only place 2012-2013 Pova would win is on clay (in 3 sets). Serving faster =/= Better serve. 2004-08 Pova had far better placement, more variety with her serves.
The last part of your post is so laughable that I am not even going to address it.
