Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Volleys when they are sitters have become my worst shot. I've got Serena syndrome when I get to net lol. I hit about 5 of them long this past weekend.

Shonami Slam My FH is a disaster.
If the ball is short I can't put it back in court for the life of me, so I slice it.

My BH and first serve though, are so much better, that it's too easy for any decent opponent to attack my FH side till it breaks, usually within two strokes

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

2nd serve is crap. Slice is basic. Consistency is non-existent

I'm being a bit harsh because I had a month out and on restart I made club champ semis before flopping

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My service I almost never hit first service and second one goes like Errani's 2nd serve but without spin but as soon as I hit it I go like 3 meters behind line so I could get opponents return

Just searched through this thread and found my posting from 2013:

My real weakness is FH CC. It only works against powerful opponents. As soon as I play pushers it is a total mess and I have to change into Niculescu mode and slice every single ball.

Drive volley. I never hit it.

My serve is the worst enemy. Over the last weekend, I was playing a friendly dub match against a team that was a full level above us.

Mentally, I broke down and double faulted 4 times in a row.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Number 1 is definitely my serve - both 1st and 2nd as they're both equally as bad. It's at the point where I feel I've accomplished something if it actually lands in.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Serve above all: my 2nd delivery is so slow and tentative I rarely try to smack the 1st serve - in which I have a decent pace - fearing to miss it and having to rely on the 2nd

I'm pretty bad at overheads too, since it's very serve-related, even if I improved it recently.

Also uncomfortable at dealing with high balls to my FH.

My backhand slice and smashes

And I thought that I could learn how to smash pretty quickly as I trained badminton in the past, how wrong one could be 75% of time I frame it but luckily it gets in usually

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My backhand slice is pathetic but I play a good two handed backhand so it's not a big problem. On the other hand, it would help when my opponents make me play a lot of short balls (not necessarily dropshots)...on bad days I do so many mistakes both on forehand and backhand side.

My drop shot that sometimes lands in the middle of the court like a miss hit lob

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

second serve and volleys in general. As for baseline shots, FH CC isn't the most reliable of my shots

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

I haven't played or practiced for months . I bet everything will be terrible when I finally start again (which TBH should be soon 'cause the season isn't too far away in NZ ).

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

2nd serve is Errani-esque, but with no kick. Just your typical spin it in all slow and short

BH in general is just not good. I have been focusing 100% on taking it earlier and using my left hand more to use more spin. Still very unreliable and I don't prepare early enough, so it ends up hitting the back fence before the court a lot.

BH volley sucks. BH slice is too high, slow, and loopy. Can never really get it to stay nice and low, or put any pace on it.

Return could use work too
