Re: Your tennis results?!

I played a match on friday. It was just one set, preparation for a major upcoming tournament

I lost 4-6.

I had points for 5-5 but I don't play as consistently as I'd like so I'm always rusty. The points I had for 5-5, I had swinging volleys and they just went totally out (wide). It felt weird. Maybe I need to have a less of a swing. It was frustrating.

And my opponents dad came up to me and tried to suss me out more deeply. I quickly shut him down.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I took a break from tennis last year to concentrate on my exams and since then I haven't won a single set.

2-6 0-6 2-6 today.

After this comp, I'm gonna quit. Or at least take an indefinite break. I don't know why but I just can't seem to play like I used to and it's frustrating

Re: Your tennis results?!

Finally played my first tennis match this year against friend and won 6-3, 6-2, 6-2. But actually didn't play well at all, especially first set was totally horrible. I also lost my power a little, especially with service (served only 5 aces , where are times when I served at least 10 aces for set? ). But anyway, in second and third set I started to serve better, got a lot first services in, forehand was really shaky (it was winner or UE from me), but BH solid (I'm slicing a lot ). Drop shots didn't work for me, but at least my net game is still so good as it was last year. A lot smash and volley winners (really love serve & volley). Can't wait to play again, things can only go better, I hope.

Why don't you just slice it back and then go to the net?

Re: Your tennis results?!

I played against my friend today. I was down 6-2 5-2* 15-40, fought off those two match points, four more at 5-3, and another two at 5-4. I won the set 7-5 and we played a tie-break to decide the match. I won it 8-6 after saving another match point. Shaking

2-6 7-5 8-6

Re: Your tennis results?!

Someone should show you how to make it. Try to use western grip. Hold your raquet in a lower position before the shot and play it to the highest point. When I was younger, my coach told me I should imagine there is a big wall instead of the net and I have to make it to the other side.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I got bagelled today and it's a fucking horrible feeling!

I don't know how to explain it, the set just went by so quickly. I couldn't slow it down until the second set. I lost 0-6 5-7.

I hate playing tennis in the morning.

Don't let it affect you so badly. Your opponent will pick up on it and take advantage of you getting frustrated.

We all have shots that are hard for us to hit. Just try to be positive and hang in there when they're slicing and just keep working hard until you get into a position to hit your best shots...

I have a terribly weak topspin backhand, but I just try and stay positive and hang in there until I can blast a forehead or get to the net...

You can do it:

Re: Your tennis results?!

Played my second match in our clubs championships today.

Played way better than last time, and got my first game 0-6 1-6
Saved like 3 or 4 GP's in that game and then finally broke him
Also had a 40-15 on my serve and 40-0 on his serve in the first set, but I decided to choke.

My first serve worked so well in training last week. But today I got like 2 or 3 in, over the whole match.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Nope, it doesn't get better if I use less power. Need to practise a lot more, then it gets better for sure

I only started playing tennis like two months ago, so it's still a loooong way...
But great to see all the improvements... I guess today I would have beaten my me from the last match with something like 6-2 6-2
