What 's your ranking?

I am 25, playing tennis since I was 14-15 years old. Almost didn't play during my studies in Brussels. I am playing again since two years and my ranking has gone up to C30 this year.

What is your ranking?

Maybe we can organize a WTAWORLD tournament or something

Sven

LOL
You don't need to win matches to become C30/4. You only have to play four valid matches...

But congrats to you, Wim! You have to start somewhere

Great!
I am very proud of becoming C30 too.

Before my studies (age 18-24) I have never had a ranking (well, C30/4 but that doesn't count ) , and now in just two years I have become C30 with only playing interclub...

I think it is the mental part, i have grown up

Me neither, never had a lesson. And you can tell by my technique
I always play for fun, never tournaments, only interclub.
As long as you can keep a ball in play, it doesn't matter if you had lessons or not but it does help, i guess.

I used to never like playing doubles, but since I don't completely suck at it anymore, I am thinking of playing some doubles tournaments. I played one this summer (DG15 and DG30) and got in both series to the semi-finals, not bad I think. I won some nice prices.

That's my game, keep the ball in play and RUN, RUN, RUN, RUN to every f***ing ball!!!!! Off course, some lessons will help, but I think it's difficult to change your manner of playing. Like my serve motion really weird, but I can't change the motion, really, I tried a couple of times...

I got to C30/2 last year with only playing 4 matches!

This year I hardly played and played extremely bad because I was just back from injury, so I won't be surprised if I'm not ranked at all Well, probably just c30-4
