If you could add ONE weapon or attribute to Makiri's game...

As all of you know, Makiri is lacking that one big weapon that the other girls have in their game. Of course, if beauty could kill, she would win all the tourneys she entered!!! Seriously though, if you could just pick ONE weapon or attribute, what would it be???

a) Big Forehand
b) Big Backhand
c) Big Serve
d) Strong Return of Serve
e) Physical Stamina/Strength
f) Mental Toughness
g) Foot Speed
i) Other

Where would consistency fall? Under mental toughness or other?

I'll go with serve. It is the WTA after all

Look at what having a big serve does for players like Serena, Venus, Pova (uninjured) and Ana (when she was good)

I voted mental. I think that would help her win a lot of close matches where she just kind of falls apart.

Mental toughness for sure. Always felt it was the main thing holding her back.

Re: If you could add ONE weapon or attribute to Makiri's game...

i was gonna vote for mental toughness, but then i reckon if she had a bigger/better serve, and she'd win some more points and rallys then it would def help with her confidence and perhaps her mental toughness

Re: If you could add ONE weapon or attribute to Makiri's game...

If she had a bigger serve she'd probably just df on big points without mental toughness

Re: If you could add ONE weapon or attribute to Makiri's game...

Mental toughness for me. She'll never be a ballbasher, but I don't think she lacks the power to compete with top players. She could maybe improve her forehand a bit from what I've seen, but really her game is good on a technical level.

Re: If you could add ONE weapon or attribute to Makiri's game...

I picked mental toughness also. I believe if Makiri has the right POSITIVE mindset everytime she steps onto the court, she could overcome the weaknesses she has in her game.

Re: If you could add ONE weapon or attribute to Makiri's game...

I chose mental toughness because Makiri has always lacked mental toughness and that has cost her so many matches in her career.
