Re: Your tennis results?!

I played 2 days ago and basically forgot how to tennis

We played 4 sets and I won 4 games

26 06 16 16... I won the very first game at LOVE hitting so well, so it was a positive start. Then I literally missed 8 returns in a row. After the 4th failed attempt, I didn't even try hitting it hard or anything, just placing it, and I couldn't even manage to do that. I hit a forehand slice return out

He's so much better than me, and I cannot keep up. But, I joined a league and it's such bullshit because all of the available teams to play on are over an hour's drive for me, and I cannot do that every single Saturday for 8 weeks in a row. It's so frustrating because I cannot find anyone on my skill level to play with. I don't even mind losing, I just like playing but it'd be a lot more fun and better to improve my game if I could find just anyone around my skill level.

I'm just basic in most every aspect. Not a spectacular serve/second serve is pretty woeful, decent forehand, backhands still trouble me, volleys can magically be good but mostly not, I cannot smash, and my court coverage/movement can always improve.

It's just sort of frustrating. I still go out and like to play. My choice of shot is always something I struggle with, but I'm trying to think more clearly out on the court We'll see how it goes.

We vowed to not go to those courts again They weren't very good. There were only 4 courts, surrounded by about 8 baseball fields so you could tell which part of that complex was kept up with the most

Re: Your tennis results?!

Won 6-0 6-0 in doubles and 6-0 6-1 in singles for my club. My serve was on fire, especially out wide to the deuce, hit a good few aces (which is good for someone who's 5'6")

I'd say if you can win games against these people and still has improvements to do, in time you'll be able to be more competitive .

I beat Darrinbaker 6-2 6-4 yesterday.

A pretty solid match. He made me run a TON yesterday.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Practiced serve today, and basically I couldn't even serve today . It was so frustrating. I was 20 minutes late for work 'cause I was determined not to stop until I got it it somewhat right. That didn't really happen .

Gonna try again tomorrow. I'll probably do better .

Re: Your tennis results?!

Well, got my final (club) junior season under way on Saturday. It was so windy, but got back to playing on my favourite sliding surface for the first time in ages

Had 2 shitty seasons in a row, so i went down in grades and now i play less sets . Went 1-1 in doubles sets (7-5 win and 6-3 loss) and then lost singles. I was serving well and hitting lines and corners at the beginning of my singles set. Led 3-1, then strong winds kept blowing in my face and. Couldn't toss the ball without it flying 50 metres behind me or serve or hit anything. Lost it 6-3.
But I'm glad with the 4 four games I played, making some progress again.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Played in a club tournament this weekend. It was okay.

I made the semi-finals basically just because of my serve with a couple of straight set wins and then lost a tough 6-4 5-7 5-7 match

I actually for the first time in I don't even know how long went out to these secluded courts that were just redone (they're amazing but the nets are either too low, or the top plastic part is torn off so the actual white "string" is showing )

Anyways, I had 7 tennis balls, and practiced on every court, both sides, until I got the ball over the net, whether in or out. I probably hit about 50 serves, which is okay I guess. I also practiced my toss and serve stance. I'd toss it, move my racket into position, but not hit it. I did that around 10-15 times on both deuce and ad side, on both sides of the court. It was a successful day

Good luck with the rest of your serving days
(believe me, it isn't as bad as mine )

Re: Your tennis results?!

Just played first match of year against friend and won 6-0, 7-5. Still not really happy with my game. So many UEs, my serve is far from good ... but yeah it was first match so it's fine. Was also 0-2 down in second but then I lead 5-3 but of course couldn't serve it out first time. And I'm also totally out of shape. I thought I will die after match. -.-

Forgot how to tennis again. This time it was worse because I was up 4-2 saved 2 bps to make deuce, then lost 15 games in a row. FIFTEEN!! This was yesterday evening and I still cannot comprehend this. Like, I don't even know what to think. It's also confusing because he was up 6-4 6-0 5-0 40-0 and I break him to make 1-5 I hit 3 excellent returns in a row and I'm thinking "WHY CAN'T IT BE LIKE THIS SOONER." But of course I went down 0-40, saved 2 match points, and then df'ed

I contacted my old coach/instructor to start lessons again. I can play decent when it comes to rallying/practice, but when it comes to games and point construction shit hits the fan... My backhand was horrid. It's never been that bad. I was appalled. The strange thing was my forehand was actually fairly consistent, with less shanks than ever. For my stronger side to be at its almost best, to my weaker side being worse than ever before made for a strange day of tennis. I don't know if its nerves or what, but playing games is tough for me. Maybe I'm weak mentally idk.

On another note, I served an ace the second point in the match...
I hit 1 ace every 6 months, so I guess that was a highlight.

We'll see how it goes. I joined a league so hopefully they'll be people there more on my level so I can hopefully be a bit more consistent.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Won a practice match tonight and won 4-6 7-5 6-1 came back from 3-5 30-40 down, the third set was some of my best tennis

My team coordinator put me as doubles only on Saturday I'm going to brainlessly ball bash the most epic tank I can't be bothered with doubles only I hate doubles and I'm the worst doubles players, I thought that was clear.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Won today against other friend 6-4, 7-6(6). Was leading 5-1* in first but have to complicate things for myself again. At *5-4 I was 0-40 down but somehow saved these break points and win 6-4. Second set was really even. Still again when I was serving at *5-6 my opponent had some set points but I saved it. Was also down in tie-break 1-3 and 5-6* but I got mini break and won next two points. A bit better play from me as first match this week.
