Your tennis results and stuff

In this thread, post ur personal tennis results and satisfactions
I'm an italian C3, i dont know how much tha would be for americans and stuff.

I have played some quallies into minor satellites, but with no success...

I started competitive national tennis @ 12 years old, even tho i lost every match back then
I have a one handed forehand and a 2 handed backhand, my backhand is usually very flat, while my forehand is usually topspinned.
I love attacking but my game is actually based on defense, i love defending, and hitting crazy winners in defence.

How about u??

When my youngest daughter wantet ti play tennis, I let her win in the beginning, but after some weeks it was impossible for me to beat her.
So I still wait for my first win

((whispering.... I am better in other sports))

Ive played many years junior tournaments in Austria with some success (beat Stephan Wiespeiner when we were 13, who now has an ATP raking). I was on several training camps in Croatia where I met for example Lovro Zovko and other players. I stopped training 3 years ago when I was 17. I started to train again this year and played one tournament in Austria but lost early

Beside tennis I was an alpine skiier and both sports were too expensive so I decided to quit tennis, but it was the wrong decision imo cause I wasnt that successfull in skiing

I played a tournament a week ago on clay, and two weeks ago on carpet:

Clay Tourney:

1ST: W 6-4, 6-1
2ND: W 4-6, 6-2, 6-1
QF: L 6-0, 6-1 (I really suck at clay)

Carpet Tourney:

1ST: W 6-1, 6-2
2ND: W 6-2, 6-4
QF: W 6-0, 6-0 (My first double-bagel of the season)
SF: W 1-6, 7-6(6), 6-2 (I twisted my ankle in the first at 2-1 him)
F: W 6-2, 6-2

2ND Tourney of the Season

This was a co-ed tourney though, but the thing is the girl I met in the final destroyed all the guys.

I'm a much better person on fast surfaces (i'm all power baby ) then on slow surfaces, although i can still win its only because the other person makes errors)

I used to have a sectional ranking, I was better than a few people in those particuar rankings . I haven't played a competitive match in about a year and a half. I hope that this winter I will be able to work on my fitness and hopefully some indoor practice. But mostly I want to work on the fitness. I have had more success in doubles as my ex playing partner and I got 4th place finishes at a couple of highschool level tournaments.

I have no more touranaments for the rest of the year...

Oh well, i really need some time to top off my serve and get rid of my grunt
Some people get pissed off cuz they "cant hear the ball hitting my strings"


Does anyone grunt when they play tennis?

How long did it take you pros to learn how to serve? I started playing tennis when I was 9 (quit when I was 13 - schoolwork started raining down on me in bucketloads)...but no matter how hard I try, I never managed to learn how to serve properly. The best I could do was a lollipop One of the main problems I had was the ball toss. It was either too low, too high, too back, too forward/sideway, etc.

So how did you guys learn how to serve?
