Time to describe my "game", which has probably regressed in some ways since the last time I wrote about it (probably wrote about it somewhere on this board before).
Serve: ??? It's bad. I aim to just get it in the box, which I usually do really well at. It has a low bounce, which always confuses my opponents and they have to adjust - easy errors sometimes.
But most of the time it puts me on the defensive. I can hit a slice on the AD side, I'm a lefty, but its like a loopy slice.
Forehand: My favorite shot to hit, but its definitely hit/miss. I have a pretty western grip, so I have to hit it perfectly to get it really flat. Most of the time its a deep lobspin (at least it aint like Nadal's topspin, so I think a combo of lob/topspin is more accurate).
My forehand return is shitty against hard serves, any advice? I usually end up chipping it into the net when I'm rushed. I can hit it pretty good most of the time, like hitting it down the line. Sometimes when I'm not sure what to do with it, I end up poking at it and lobbing.
Backhand: Probably better than my forehand because I usually hit it deep and up the middle, pretty consistent. I return better on this side (aka it goes in the court!) and I can run out wide to hit it pretty well. I actually hit a good two-handed lob on the side, hit 4-5 winners like that last time I played. Not a flashy shot, but its stable.
Volleys: Meh. I have a baaad backhand volley unless its up high, then I use two hands. Forehand volley is OK. I actually do better when its a harder shot - when I have too much time to think, I always overhit/think and miss.
Overheads are BAD, just like my serve.
I'm pretty fast, but I don't get myself into the right spot all the time - not proper distance from ball, a little slow to react to shots short in the court. Im in good shape though, and don't usually get tired (until after the match haha), so most of the time I wear down whoever I'm playing, which is actually pretty fun. Not a lot of finesse or touch - slice is way too iffy to try unless I'm up 40-0 in a game. Dropshot is meh, but at my level a bad dropshot can still win points.
