Improving her transition volley is vital, says Navratilova
"It was amazing the way she came back after the US Open, where by her own admission she was tired," said Navratilova in an interview with the WTA. "And then she pulls an 11-0 finish out of the hat. I hope she takes a good vacation and gets herself ready for next year. The thing I’d target is getting to the net. I mean, she’s gotten better but there’s still a long way to go on the volley front, particularly that first volley -- the transition volley, which is probably the most difficult shot in the game.
