We watched Ana konjuh and she has variety. What do you think? Change game or keep what works? She is 14 now. Will she need more for college or just keep pounding and placing the ball?
I think what your new coach is trying to point out is, playing the aggressive, power game is only going to get her so far. He wants your daughter to keep the power and aggressive nature of her game, while adding variety to keep her opponents guessing.
