Only Smiley can tell us what she wants out of tennis and something about her potential to progress.
Oh, wait. She already has!
She wants to become a ranked player in her area. She is fast and quite fit. After just a few months, she can hang with good players. She takes a boatload of instruction, which is something people do when they want to improve and improve quickly.
Yet it's OK to push and *not hit the way she has been taught to hit?*
Hey, her pro saw her in the push victory. He didn't think much of it. That says a lot. I mean, any pro who said to me, "Hey, I saw your match, and although you didn't hit any of your shots the way I know you can, you outlasted that inferior player, so I'm good with it!" would get the boot.
