Re: Your tennis results?!
Today I played in the consolation draw of the U18
Well this morning I played at 10:00 am and won 3-6 6-3 10-8
Yeah this guy was a lefty and I played so bad in the first set shanking balls everywhere and hitting long. This resulted in a push of the ball and ended up being down 3-6 0-2 so then I was like I'm going to lose anyway If I dont hit the ball so might as well hit it well I ended up being more consistent and won the next 5 games before closing out the second set 6-3. In the tiebreak he was really pathetic he literally pushed every ball and it was so obvious thats probally why he lost he should have just stayed with his strokes. Maybe he was tired I dont really know but I was up 9-5 in the tiebreaker before a few unforced errors came in and I finally closed it out 10-8.
Now for the Consolation Finals I lost 2-6 2-6
So fustrating that beat the people I'm supposed to beat but then when I play a better player its just like I dont know what to do. I mean the guy I played this morning was good but this guy was better. He would run around all his forehands to hit high topspin balls to my Backhand, eventually I would throw up a shortball and he would blast it into the corner.
Ugh im so fustrated right now..its like everytime I think I'm playing well I lose badly. Maybe I'm not as good as I think. I called my coach and told him my analysis of the match and he said my balls were landing too short and I needed to implement more topspin on my forehand.
My forehand is decent it just doesent penetrate the court like some of the people I play which is why I lose they all have bigger forehands then me. It also dosent help that I'm a fairly short guy only 5'8. My forehand takeback is pretty short and maybe I should go with a longer swing I dont really know atm..
So yeah need tips for getting extra topspin on my forehand
