LOL! Im just the opposite.
I started playing in 1999. Fave shot is the serve, but also like to volley. I dont think my worst shot IS a shot, but its definitely the mind and stamina. I make some stupid mistakes, and spend too much energy kinda fast.

I LLOOOOVVVEEEE the clay. Also dont mind playing on hard. Never played on grass, and dont like the carpet that much.

I use a Head i.Radical MidPlus with IntelliTour strings. Finally found the perfect racquet to me.

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

I've started to play again 5 months ago after not playing for 4 years. My best shot is backhand, my worst is my serve (I usually loose my service games because my opponent gets to hit 4 return-winners ) Favorite surface...mmm, don't really mind, I play on carpet now, but a few years ago I played on clay and before that on artificial (sp?) grass. Raquet, uhm... I'ts an Estusa and it's fine , though I'm sure there ones out there that would be better for me, unfortunatly I'm just a poor college student who can't afford a new one right now.

I don't remember when started playing, it was a long time ago. I finished last year ranked no61 in Russia my age having played only one tournament

Haven't played seriously this year, I'm studiing

My fave shot is forehand, I play a doublehanded backhand (slice and volley single handedly) but I enjoy hitting the single handed more (I learned that myself so the ball doesn't always go where I plan it to ), I volley from time to time

I am playing tennis when I am not skiing.. Hate playing indoors, not because it is faster, but rather because I generally hate playing indoors - no matter what game it is - whether it is tennis or soccer or chess or cards.

I certainly try my best!But locally,I got outdoor courts and weather is usually pretty crap but played on clay and carpet before.I dont like volleying or more like I cant do it!lol and I sometimes try and play a winner of serve,in fact most of the time!Got a good forehand if Im honest!

Best of luck to Rogi: Australian Open, Dubai and TMS Indian Wells champ 2004

I played tennis once. I was in college and the tennis court was on the roof of the sports complex. Next to the complex was an outdoor swimming pool. I had so many balls flied out of the fence that I worried I might killed someone in the swimming pool with those falling bombs! That's the same reason I swam in that swimming pool once.
