Re: Your tennis results?!

I've kinda worked out my gamestyle a bit better after today I think. I've been trying to play really powerful and that hasn't really worked. I do have enough power to not be attacked easily, but consistency is more my thing . So for the time being I'm gonna try and keep this in mind.

Maybe with a different, heavier racket I'll be able to play with more power. I'll have to save up for that .

Re: Your tennis results?!

Great job everyone!!

I always can hit so well in practice but never go for my shots in matches. I am so mentally unstable and simply resort to pushing which doesn't work at my level

Anyone got any tips? My serve absolutely sucks and I have to focus on my ground game.

Re: Your tennis results?!

A lot of pros have that problem too. How many times have we read about a player hitting well in practice only to flop during a match?

Re: Your tennis results?!

Just decided to play my 6th Futures even this coming January in Florida

Its really just for the kick of doing it as I have really not been playing as much recently. But I'll be in the area with my family, should be a great chance to enjoy it once again!

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

I haven't done well on clay at all. I barely have the chance to play on clay during the year and so far I have really been killed on green and red clay. At least I managed to get games both times. So I'm just going out there to have fun, but hopefully not get double bagelled

I'm doing much better on hardcourts and indoors though, which fits my style much better and my training over the years.

But hey, I'm not taking this seriously. I'm having fun playing such tournaments, dream come true!

You never know, you might encounter someone who's in your boat and you could win .

Anyway so annoyed. There's no indoor courts in my city and it's been raining all week. So I haven't practiced since Saturday . There goes all my momentum built up with my two wins on Saturday .
