Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

I can't hit an inside-out forehand to save my life, so I usually just hit a backhand which is far superior.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

2nd serve mostly considering my 1st serve is quite a good shot
BH on clay it's quite a good shot on fast surfaces because I can use opponent's power with it, but I struggle to generate my own path so on clay it just sucks.
Volleying...just poor.

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

1. Volleys (I always hit drive volleys )
2. Slices
3. Drop shot
4. Back hand cross court.

My back hand cross court is either Maria or Stosur, there is no medium, more often than not it's Stosur.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My backhand by far, although my crosscourt BH has improved greatly over the last few years. I just have to remember to come to a complete stop before hitting the ball CC

All of this. My slice. It's so bad. It's so, so bad. I did a group lesson once where we did nothing but hit slice forehands the whole time and I ended up looking like an idiot.

I have an excuse for #4 though, I had tendonitis in my left wrist so I'm afraid to hit my backhand CC very hard

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Volleys, I basically miss 90% of them.

2nd serve is ridiculously attackable. 1st serve isn't great at all either.

Also, some trouble with forehand crosscourt (I like to hit DTL with it)


serena, jankovic, venus, na, hsieh, date-krumm, jovanovski
makarova, diatchenko, halep, goerges and kvitova

how could I forget moonballs? I am so terrible at them and I can't deal with them coming unless hitting another one back, which is a failure anyway

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Second serve. Too poor. Because of my second serve, I serve often my first serve as second xD
My voleys and smash from the baseline. (I like to use In-side-out forehand, but I didn't play 3 months and I have all worst shots now )

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Definitely my backhand, I have recently switched from one handed to two handed and wow it is way easier to hit the ball more accurately and strongly with the two handed.

Championship: TP3 Wimbledon 2011, Suicide Tennis New Haven 2011
RUP: TT Doubles AO 2012

May the HAMMER smash the cross

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Dropshot. I mean it's decent, but very rarely a clean winner, even when I get my opponent out of position.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

high backhand volleys and second serves. Both are liable to end up anywhere. The backhand down the line can be rough at times as well.

No shame. Most players return moonballs with moonballs anyway .

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

I'm a right-handed player.

One-handed backhand is awful.

One-handed backhand slice is average.

Two-handed backhand is Top 3 in our Club.

...clearly I need to make sure I never hurt my left arm or I am screwed.

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.
