Yes, I agree. That one girl, Deja, whose father posted here is a good example.

She was a very athletic, motivated girl but she was doomed to failure because the techniques she was being taught were so poor.

As for AD, I tend to think (hope) they will correct her game as she develops and correct her serve. They are obviously doing a lot right so far.
