The following observations are of course my personal view and do not claim to be the “truth”!
Here comes Tetjana Bilenko (Ukraine):
- good but not tremdous footwork
- consistent defending with both forehand and backhand
- very choppy pushes on both sides making it difficult for opponent to come in with fast topspins
- good variety of unexpected and unusual forehand serves with different side and backspin normally into backhand side of opponent
- not counterattacking with forehand topspins often enough
- she is using pimples in on both sides with the disadvantage of being very vulnerable to short, slow but heavily “loaded” topspins
- missing the backhand smashes quite often against slow and high topspins into her backhand right after her serve
- taking heavy, slow topspins into her forehand too early/too high thus retrieving the ball too high or right off the table.
- overall physical fitness could improve still a bit
- pratice taking the ball lower when confronted with slow and loaded topspins
- Consider using long pimps to overcome weakness of pips in or short pips
- practice greater variety of forehand serves
