I can moonball with the best and if all else fails that will be my tactic.

I have a ridiculous hawaiian forehand grip (where can I buy a western grip? ) which means I don't change grip between forehand and backhand and hit both with the same side of the racket. Horrible I know, but it's too late to change it now! If Adam hits hard and flat I have no chance. In fact, if Adam can keep the ball in the court consistently - I have no chance.

What was the result of Jess v Adam?

Also, how long do we have the court for? Can we squeeze in 3 sets?!?!

Also, Adam please give me some background info on your playing style!
Moonballs used to give me serious problems, I've hopefully overcome them though

Jess beat me we should be ok for 3 sets, I think we've got the court until they close at about 11.

You want me to reveal my secrets well.....my forehand is my strongest shot, but also my most inconsistent. Backhand is solid if unspectacular. I hit with some topspin, not huge amounts though. Serve is either a huge weapon or a weakness, it's damn inconsistent

Not liking the sound of this "huge weapon"... are you tall?

Anyway, should be fun - looking forward to playing on carpet again.

PS. anyone predicting me in 3 is a surefire loser as my stamina is

Around about the same size as Karlovic.....nah I'm just under 6 foot. Don't worry, I have a good serving day once every 10 matches so I usually slow it down

So I guess with a small amount of topspin you're not a grinder? More of a James Blake? And is the backhand one or two handed? Much time at net?

I end up at net quite often, but mostly by accident - then comes the nosebleed.

Further information:
adeegee!. has the home crowd behind him playing at his home venue, but alansk chose the court surface (indoor carpet). Adam has lost his lucky shock absorbers so alansk is surely favourite.

Ooooh is this the place we played last time? Orange carpet

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

I'd say kind of in the middle. Not necessarily a grinder but I get a fair few balls back, wouldn't describe myself as a Blake or Gonzo either. I'd say I'm like PHM without the choking

I'm a bit of a baseliner, I make the odd venture to the net though

It is

Alan was against the idea of a hard court, so we're playing a night match
