So, basically, I guess the answer is it doesn't matter?

Obviously Federer has the better forehand, but is Serena's easier to copy for mortals?
I get your point here, but think maybe this is not an area where Serena is
easier to copy. There are reasons for keeping the hands in front of you till
the best time for timing.
Do what works for you though, and good thread.
