Oh God I love it when kids pass by, I happen to hit a superpowerful backhand, and they're all like "OMG wow look at that!" I keep playing as if nothing happened but on the inside I'm like "Yas! "

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Backhand DTL. I love ripping it down-the-line. Cross court is good too. First serve is nice and flat. Also, very good on the run and forehand volley is powerful.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

I have a shity technique overall, but sometimes (once in a few matches xD) I hit really explosive backhand DTL or cross court. But this almost never happen. I'm a disaster.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

If I'm honest, I used to love hitting a cross-court forehand by hitting (what feels like) the side of the ball. It's especially useful for put-aways on really short balls.

That's probably like the easiest shot in tennis to execute.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Lobs are just awesome, always very close to the base line, BH DL, return or serve, top spin cross court FH with a sharp angle, and flat powerful cross court forehand

What? I hit a backhand DL? I don't now if this is true...I play much better now though.

Re: Best shots in your repertoire?

Forehand and serve. My return is nasty I can hit so many forehand return winners DTL and I almost never miss with my forehand.

Serve is kind of like Bartoli except not as robotic and I'm able to get more angle and desired speed. It's good because I hit 3-4 aces a set now.
