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

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

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

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My serve is still awful. My first is powerful can be very accurate, my second would make Errani laugh. My smashes have gotten better now I'm more comfortable at the net.

I can also hit a much better forehand slice. Sometimes it works, sometimes not, but is way more consistent than my backhand slice.

Tbph, backhand slice is the only backhand I can hit.

Unless it's LH.

Any kind of double-handed backhand.
