You can consistently make the Witch miss her first swing

Someone who plays campaign-mode told me about this the other day. I decided to look into it this morning and came to the conclusion that, on a local server, with net_fakelag to simulate ping, you could consistently get the Witch to miss her first swing at you. I have not yet tested this on a live server, but I'm going to assume that it works just as well there.

I wasn't able to capture it (as I wasn't recording) there was an instance where I dodged her second attack while jumping. Allowing me to kill her with a silenced uzi once. Every other time however, I got hit by her second swing.

How to replicate:   
- Approach a sitting witch from behind.   
- Attack her, THEN jump (quickly). Timing is crucial, jump too early/late and you'll get hit.   
- Proceed to kill her.

If you have a fast swinging melee weapon, you'll be able to kill her alone. If you have a slow melee weapon consider having your team mates help attack her as well.
