Kitchen sink hot water pressure weak


I live in a condo and the hot water pressure to all sinks and toilets is fine except for the kitchen sink. We replaced the faucet and it's still weak. I asked building maintenance and he says there's a single shut off for our suite so it's not an issue on their end. He figures the shut off valve for the sink has failed internally and is causing a blockage. What do you figure?

I figure he's probably right.... Did you try looking at it?
