Well shes been through coaches like Newcastle UTD have gone through football managers,a great player with alot of talent and has/had the potential to be multiple GS champion,all the best Anna i hope it works out for you….

John M Says:

I think changes in your serve would make you a more consistent and dangerous opponent. I think a toss more directly over your head, with racquet preparation as you do some arching backward of your back as you track the ball coming into the hitting area. Your ground strokes seem strong. Good luck.
