Re: How good are you?

I stink. I have good footwork, sort of. I'm fast. Kind of. This is all relative though, since i play with other people who blow.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: How good are you?

I'd rank myself somewhere above a paraplegic and somewhere below Federer.

Re: How good are you?

Alright I might as well go now. I'm pretty good, probably 5.0 or so. Got a big serve and a pretty good forehand, but lazy footwork. And I could take Roddick from the baseline.

Re: How good are you?

What does ITN 6 refer to? Is it a rating system or an organization? I only have heard of the American NTRP system.

Re: How good are you?

im quite good- good spin forehand like nadal, and a powerful backhand, and i constantly work on my footwork. Im 16 and i am small for my age- and i hit around 100 mph serve, i think its decent- but comparatively its shit.

Nieminen- The lucky lefty of tennis.
Sampras- The hairy champion of tennis.
Ferrero- The mosquito of tennis.
Srichaphan- The Thai- ger of tennis.
Safin - The of tennis.
Bagdatis- The quotesman of tennis "my coach will watch, i will sleep with my girlfriend"
Kiefer- The naive guy, "yeh, me and seb are good friends"
Santoro- The double handed wizard of tennis.
Lopez- IS my hair right? IS my lipstick right?
Moya- The tatoo and muscles of tennis (although nadal kicks his ass in that department).
Tipsarevic- The tatoo of tennis, competing with moya.
Djokovic- Stole Jiri's surname

Sorry if I left out your favourite, just PM me to let me know-- thanks.

100mph serve? Nice. Can you keep it under control consistantly?

Re: How good are you?

ok, i have a crap serve, i have extremely crap movement, but i have an explosive forehand, backhand and smash, so usually i can control the point without moving. I'm lazy.

Re: How good are you?

Pathetic at best! lol, really I stink but hopefully in the not so distant future I should take some serious lessons to at least play at club level, if only for recreation. Boy I wish I could serve with a racket as I serve with my hand but with a volleyball. Its inconsistent and streaky but on a volleyball court and with a volleyball I can usually hit at least 3 aces per set. I am very short, however I have a rather very good serve for my size and height, I make look some of my 6 foot three inch fellow players look smaller than what they are when I am usually serving well. Anyways just rattling too much I guess!

My forehand is no where to be found and my backhand is ok at best, if I keep proper form and stance. I never thought trying to serve with a tennis racket could be so difficult, at best my serves would be powder puff 60mphs at best, that sums me up on a tennis court pretty much lol!
