Maybe im wrong i just see how Serena and S.Stosur look soooo much better than most of the other women due to the fact that they hit the big kicker.
True. Also, I think another issue with it is that you can get burned by it if your not careful. If you leave it up to someone that has a good forehand, your done...so you got to take your lumps.
