I can have more DF than Dementieva, and my second service is much like 55kmph
And I am 189cm

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Serve for me has definitely held me back Sometimes I get into a habit of quick serving somewhat like Voegele or Dolgopolov Timing go straight to hell and just a complete disconnect Sometimes ball toss isn't as in front as I need it to be so I can get my weight forward.

Backhand is very very solid and I have a nice one handed slice, but under pressure it could flop

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My serve is not technically correct but pretty accurate, until I try to add a lot of speed

My backhand is definitely not where I want it to be.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My net game. I'm a pretty tall person and I have a good movement for that but my net game is my greatest weakness. I used to have a solid net game. But after my shoulder injury I wasn't that confident to approach to the net. You can compare it in a way with Sharapova's net game. As she I have sometimes my golden moments at the net. But normally I make a lot of errors there.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My serve is like Camille Pin's. And I'm not even kidding OK, maybe not. More like Dementieva's

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Sometimes my backhand's aren't deep enough, I have a problem transferring weight when rotating hips, my technique of that is quite clunky because I often find my shoulders facing to the side than squared to the net. So my BH ends up landing a little past the service line. However it has enough spin to not be eaten alive.

Serve is the major for me. Sometimes it clicks and it is effortless and powerful, and I look forward to serving Then it can be horrendous when I don't put enough weight forward or push through with the right balance When it's bad I barely land a first serve in and have to do push slices for my second serves

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My volleys are really bad

They're not technically bad, i just get scared, and:

1- Hit straight into net
2- Hit outside the tram lines
3- Hit one that sits up prfectly for opponent to pass me

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My worst shot is backhand slice. Everytime I (try to) hit it, it results in a moonball. Also my volleys aren't good either.

Any kind of double-handed backhand.

Same with my backhand slice. My forehand slice is so much better. I can really cut underneath the ball and produce backspin but I cannot with the backhand. It's just a matter of practice though.
