If we roll a dice (6-sided), it is "impossible to know" whether the number will be below 2 or above 2. However, I would place my bet on above 2.

It is rare we can predict things with 100% certainty, but that doesn't mean we can't or shouldn't make educated guesses.

Need strength?

Here's Justine in 2000, before her workout craze.

Up to this point she (according to Wikipedia):

- won the junior girl's singles title at the French Open.

- regularly reached the late rounds of international competitions

- won five International Tennis Federation tournaments by the end of 1998.

- began her professional career on the WTA tour in May 1999

- became only the fifth player to win her debut WTA Tour event.

- defeated three top 50 players on the road to the title

I don't think you need strong arms to have a good 1hbh.

Strength helps, which is why she began working out. But "need"? No.
