Smile You and tennis

Hi everyone
I made this thread to talk about us and tennis (tournaments, results, ...)
For my part, I play regulary some tennis tournaments and I don't play so bad
What about you? Do you play good ? or bad? any rankings? any tournaments?
Thanks to answer

I don’t play. I have never played in my life. Well that’s a lie, I have a bit, say for 30 minutes one day. But I’m seriously considering taking lessons.

Btw, can I borrow a racquet?

Maria Sharapova
Krunic~~ Ivanovic ~~ Jovanovski ~~ Stojanovic~Jorovic
Putintseva~~Robson ~~Hingis~~ Svitolina ~~ Pavlyuchenkova~~ Rybarikova~~ Halep~~Pervak~~Kulichkova~~Kirilenko~~Mladenovic
Bencic~~Voegele~~Jankovic~~Zvonareva~~Karolina Pliskova ~~Krystina Pliskova

I play in the collegial and universitary league here in the province of Quebec. I play multiple regional men's tourneys during the summer mostly, but I play for about like 20 hours per week during summer! I give lessons to young kids and also to debutants or advanced players

well im a consistent player as in i dont give away much points, but im inconsistent on a match to match basis....kinda like farina elia shes very inconsistent but plays a consistent style of game.

thats how ive been this year and it sucks. ive won about half my competition matches and about half my matches outside of comp.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

I play at University in Competition and have a training group with some of my best friends. We train 3 to 4 times a weeks and do our off court fitness together in our dorm every night. There is me another boy and 2 girls. We are a team and we have awesome fun. We all play different. Im the Power player and liken my game to Davenport. I mcan pretty much out hit and over power anyone but im really slow and dont like long rallies and variety.

i only play with friends.
i just told them that i want to try out some things and really feel the game - so now i've played against 5 of them (some more than once) and still havn't lossed!
i'm hoping on building some confidence and ask someone that learns to play against me, kinda like asking someone on a date i guess my backhand is my only consistent shot. one handed - and i slice momo-style.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
