I don't think there will be an easy way to beat her either, she's too adaptable unlike Caro.
No doubt there is no simple masterplan to beat Vika, but attacking her serve makes a lot sense. It also seems more players use Vika´s own ROS tactics against her and try to return deep through the middle. Noticed a few times Vika´s footwork is not ready and she leaks short balls from there that the opponents can attack. Now just an aggressive ROS doesn´t guarantee you victory, but it is a strategy Vika needs to handle in the future and tbh, if she can develop a 20-30% better serve because of it, she´d be in great shape for the next few years.
