Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Why would you hit a one-handed backhand if it sucks and your two handed is great?

"Sometimes we've wondered if Martina actually knew what she was saying. Maybe it was her age or inexperience or something got lost in the translation. But I don't know. She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

definitely volleys. i miss the easiest of volleys 80% of the time.
second serve deserts me sometimes (i hit the frame), no feel on drop shots unless its on clay.

i did a group lesson on backhands slices 2 or 3 years ago, everyone else could get the ball over the net, i couldn't fortunately i can do bh slices now.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

I literally have all of the touch shots, just none of the power ones. Hence why my serves, forehand, and volleys aren't the best (all consistent and I can execute very tough slices and drop shots with volleys and the forehand, just not much power)

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

Second serve is probably the worst. Drop shots are very on or off. Sometimes good, sometimes barely reach net or are lobs Lobs are the same; sometimes very good or really bad.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

I forgot to add I'm bad when stretched out wide on the backhand side (I don't have the best reach on that side) so in that instance I hit a right-handed forehand instead of a backhand (like Sharapova except reverse ). Surprisingly an OK shot I think .

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

My serve

I think my ball toss is worst than Ana. But I think it's more of the fact that I'm short and I don't jump

If I hold my racquet "mid" I tend to serve OK, but if I grip at the end my serves ALWAYS hits the tape.

If play a lot I tend to serve OK, but if I don't my serves ALWAYS hits the tape, go long or fly out the fence.

Re: Worst shots in your repertoire?

I think it's changed. Now it's just my shot selection is awful. I was standing at the net during a doubles match and a FH volley came right to me, slightly above eye level, and I smashed it down as hard as I could. Into the net. At my feet.
