I think im starting to develop some sort of back thing as well. Usually after match or training I have lower back pain or is that common?

Yeah, most of the time the pain is centered in my lower back, but it occasionally migrates or spreads across the rest of my back. I'm not sure how common it is, but either way it's really frustrating.

That must be frustrating I can serve 100% but I do sometimes get sore wrists or feet after a long match, as my shot technique involves a bit of wrist.

I only ever hit one handers (non slice, I one hand slice all the time) on the advantage in the service line or well inside baseline but they only have 50% chance of getting in. I barely get to practice my two hand Fh and I barely use it. But for some reason if I don't practice shots like that, they mostly work when needed Too flat though, not a great success rate just like the one hand BH.

Played my friend again. Same guy who I lost 62 61 against the other day. Much closer this time. I lost 7-6(5) 6-4.

I let so many leads slip away it was so frustrating. Yes he did produce good tennis during many of those points but silly UEs on my part on the clutch points was also my down fall

I led *2-1 and *3-2 and *5-3 40-15* in set 1. Hit two BH UEs on those set points. Served for it at *5-4 and again at *6-5. He produced some winners and I didn't hit that great of serves/shots when serving for it. I was down *0-3 in the tiebreak and got it back to 5-5 but I hit an UE and then he came to net and put away a simple FH volley to win the breaker 7-5.

Second set I led 3-0* and *4-2 and had him serving at 0-40 at 4-3* but couldn't break. I was up *40-15 4-4 with another game point at Advantage but couldn't hold. Had him at 4-5* 40-15* when he served for the match but couldn't do it.

It's so unbelievably frustrating I can't even describe it. This guy is better than me. Usually crushes me. I'm lucky to get a 6-3 set most of the time. But I incorporated a different game plan than usual. Pushing.

That's right PUSHING. OF ALL THE GAME PLANS I HATE I USED IT AND IT WORKED I just made sure to hit deep, adding aggression only when need be, and just getting the ball over. Of course he hit plenty of clean winners, mainly on the FH side, but he also hit a TON of errors. And I cared not one bit

I did play 2 hours of doubles before we played so I was a bit tired going into it but nothing I thought was the reason I didn't win. He was more clutch on the bigger points. All in all my body is dead tired today but it was great fun. I don't mind losing at all. I just want the scoreline to be decent and not 61 61 everytime.

I hit them crosscourt, which annoys western forehands and dtl on the approach so I get an easy volley

I fucking LOVE FH slices. So much fun to wind up for a big FH and then just slice it DTL and see the opponent scramble to get it

I played juniors like this and since going to two handed on both sides I see why it's a horrible idea, still fun though.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I have a new hitting partner. Tall fella, nice build, married unfortunately but beats me every time.

Strong serve, good groundstrokes and very good net play. He disclosed that he used to workout 4-5x a week and I realised I was up against this 'athlete'.

My friend told me to join Sydney's Gay and Lesbian hitting group on Sundays but the venues a bit far.
