I last beat him in July but just because he had a cold and I had a good day, last time I beat him before that was December last year and we play every friggin' weekend HELP!!!
Well what tactics have you tried against him? Maybe consider trying something way out of your comfort zone like charging the net, moonballing, slicing everything, etc.

Today I played my friend again and I won again (barely). 7-6(7-5) saving 2 match points. I choked at 5-3 30-0 and 40-30 with a swinging and missing the ball and a double fault. He improved so much though! His first serve is now better than mine!!!! Only difference-mine actually goes in! :P Then at 5-6 15-40 it was my friend's turn to choke. He missed an easy smash that was VERY close and then double faulted to get to deuce. I broke and edged a dramatic tiebreak. He always hits the smashes way harder than he needs to though. Costed him a lot of points. :embarrassed: He did try a new tactic today of constantly moonballing, drop shotting, and slicing me today and it worked! But I started doing it back to him and he collapsed under my constant moonballing pressure
