I've NEVER seen her backhand so awful though.
No never seen the BH that bad either. Very, very rare it goes off like that.
Really what she needs to do is basically stick to Hoggy tactics, only not go CC/behind constantly. She should never do that for more than 2 shots in a row, so many rallies extended and points lost because of her refusal to go DTL. But then with her technique and refusal to bend her knees it's harder to go DTL.
