Expert’s resume

Persistent and accurate serve, she puts a lot of slice on it, which lowers power, but brings certain advantages: less double-faults, and more complicated returns for opponents. She's plays steadily on the baseline, and equally dangerous on forehand and backhand wings. Needs to improve slice shots by bending knees more and making a smoother racquet motion. Can also work on her returnes, by better using legs and body weight, plus applying a more open grip to be able to attack high-bouncing balls. Good footwork in drills and pointplay, good rhythm. Overall, she's an offensive player who wants to dictate the point and finish them early.
