I think many juniors get burned out before reaching anywhere near their maximum potential in the overplaying of pressure tournaments at a young age.
Who is to say this girl is not playing competitive matches that her coach sets up?
Anyway, her follow through looks weird to me....but I'm just a tennis mom, not a coach.
Her strokes look too mechanical. Reminds me of something TCFL said one time, something like - just let the younger kids play and have fun and they will naturally develop good strokes and footwork and then add in proper instruction to work out the flaws. She just seems too stiff and programmed.
