Ana has loaded up her larger muscles to hit the semi-open forehand, her biggest weapon. Her shoulders are coiled roughly 60 degrees in relation to her feet so that she can uncoil as she swings, and her right leg is bent at the knee so that she can push upward and forward. The combination of rotational and forward, linear energy makes the semi-open forehand the most popular among the pros.
