My guess is, and this is being optimistic, that they work on it in practice and it's just not match ready, yet.
I hope you are right, but highly doubt it. She has been using that grip a long time, won in the 10s and now the 12s. Sadly once they start winning with grips like that most coaches do not have the guts to change them, or the parents resist. Rick Macci always says the biggest single dead ender in junior tennis is an extreme grip that wins in 10-14s, then gets crushed in 16-18s. I think he would cry if he saw her grip.
