Worst shots in your repertoire?

My serve can be shakey but that's down the list honestly. I'm a left-hander with 2HBH, and my worst shots are probably, in order:

1. Backhand volley (single-handed)
2. Backhand DTL
3. Forehand DTL
4. Forehand volley

I think there's hope for #3. I can hit them, just not that well from a neutral position. I certainly can't blast it like I can my up the middle or crosscourt shots. I think in time I'll be able to hit this pretty well though.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Volleys and slice, mostly because I hardly ever hit them.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My forehand can be dreadful at times, my serve sucks too. Backhand is good, but I really need to improve the serve.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My serve and my backhand volley

Seriously can anyone give me tips for serving because it is one of my only easily exposed weaknesses and if it became even half way decent I could have a much higher ranking and win matches much more frequently and easily

Ive tried the kick serve on the ad side and it really seems to work for me I just have to perfect it!

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Everythings is all around good but I need to improve my backhand, when I get footwork right it's fine but when I am too early or too late it flops.

High backhands when I want to put pressure on it.

Smash. Which is weird as my serve is one of my 2 big strengths.
