Re: Your tennis results?!

Blew my knee out today a la Mary Pierce, I almost screamed just as loud. If anyone doesn't know the pain of this injury, it's completely the most intense pain I've ever felt. Hopefully I can get back on the court..if not then I had fun and I'll always love tennis.

Re: Your tennis results?!

My tennis won't start again till February . Oh well, I'm practicing my serve pretty well and it's definitely getting better.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Ok, so I have a question about gamestyles...hopefully someone can help me out. I have pretty flat groundies but I play my best against big-hitters. I really like using the pace of their shots. Lately I have been struggling against really defensive players (pushers) that just loop the ball back, often dropping it really short, with no pace whatsoever. I feel like I have to generate all the pace myself. Often times I start these matches well but because I am going for so much I lose all my rhythm on my groundstrokes and crumble in the 2nd set. Last match I played a defensive player I decided to play more defensively myself and just try and get more margin on my shots.

What's the answer to these sorts of match-ups? It's like when I go for my shots constantly I lose rhythm and feel but when I play too defensively I end up getting run left and right. It is tough to find the perfect solution.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Doubles changes for me
If I can volley or serve or hit my forehand, I love it

Re: Your tennis results?!

I was so awful on Saturday lost doubles 6-7 1-6. Singles was just embarrassing I lost 1-6 6-4 2-6 I won't the second set in Kerber mode, totally couldn't care less, I didn't move if I did I was walking to hit my shots. They guy I played was the biggest asshole as well he fist pumped and did come on after I missed a smash, and a couple of time when I hit the easiest shots into the net. And then he complained when I did a come on after serving and ace to win the second matches like that really annoy me because he was a shit player and I lost to him, he was actually useless and I was soooo rusty.

When I play defensive players I play slightly more defensively myself, I hit angles and make the run side to side and wait for a short ball to attack. I also try to get to net a lot more often and also attack on ROS. But I generate my own power pretty easily so

Re: Your tennis results?!

I was awful Saturday too . First match of the new year. Whenever I lose I feel it's because I played badly and I always have chances but miss them .
