Excellent appreciation of Anna's game in these articles. Except this:
Anna has a great serve
, especially for a girl of 5'7"! It's consistently deep
, although she can also hit short-angled serves to the sidelines
, which are very effective as they push her opponent way beyond the sideline to hit the return. Anna hits a lot of aces
, both out wide and down the middle.
And Anna has a great one-two punch
: most of the time, her serve doesn't win the point directly
, but sets up a groundstroke-winner on the third stroke of the rally.
