Re: Official Australian Open 2014: New Season, New Coach, 'New Shoulder' and New Slam
The problem with the serve is the new stance, particularly as she's in a different position for the toss. She's made numerous changes to her serve over the years, but most were swing related, her core positioning hasn't really changed that much. Needs more time to prove hit or miss though.
It seems to make it easier for her to hit out wide on the Ad side, although she shouldn't overplay it like she did in 2011. She just needs to mix it up in big points, her T serve is still >>>>>>>>>>. Hope the lack of speed isn't here for much longer either.
Nice BH DTLs, some really great stuff off the ground actually, I'd rather she improves as she goes on than the past couple of years.
