I want to know what is more important vor you: Single or double. I like playing single because there I can give 100% of that what I can but in doubles I really don't play as well as in single..maybe because of my volley...and you? :wavey:
Singles, but at the same time doubles has really improved my singles game, better at the net and my return can be vicous. I actually serve better in doubles too. I love the use of angles and lobs, and working as a team. I have more doubles titles than singles. I actually won a doubles title playing w/a complete stranger. The tournament director asked if I'd like to play dubs. I said sure who's my partner? He said let me introduce him to you. We worked well together after I told him I'd serve into the sun.
In league play my dubs partner and I went undefeated for three years.
I hate playing doubles because if I lose a point I always convince myself that it was my partners fault (either because they screwed up or put me off) and secretly end up hating them, even though its usually just because I'm crap. I dont serve very well either because more than once I have served into the back of my partners head.
No,I should definitely be on the opposite side of the net.
Sometimes when i'm not playing well, or smart, my partner shows me the way not w/words, but w/his play. We play one up one back, and confound dubs. specialist by beating them. We're both lefties w/good forehands and steady backhands, and of course good serves, returns and lobs.
Singles...def..I like to be able to blame myself if I lose, and only worry about my game. And I like feeling proud, like I worked hard when I won. I like singles so much better. Doubles is more for fun for me anymore. I used to play doubles for my school...now I play singles. I worked hard for it, and I love it. A lot of work, but it's great.
I like singles more, b/c I can visualize and work the point. I can't read where the ball is going as well in doubles. However I'm not very aerobically(sp?) fit, so I'm only good for about 25 mins.....haha. So I think I enjoy doubles more, plus I love being at the net.
BTW- Is it bad tennis etiquette to return a serve in doubles right at the net person? I've found that they normally can't get out of the way fast enough to hit it and also they assume I'm going crosscourt. Whenever I aim for down the line shot, I miss it more often than I make it.
SINGLES!!!! I like being in control (or out of control..) of my own results. Plus my groundstrokes are killer, and I love to run my opponents around the court, corner to corner, and watch them wilt from exhaustion. (sadsistic, aren't I ?)
I'm a doubles specialist I prefer it as there is less court to cover and you have a partner to back you up. And I don't like singles as much because I never know when to come to the net, but I like volleying but don't like when I face a serve and volleyer and prefer to play against a baseliner
