Re: Shots you DON'T have in your arsenal

Hmm, not sure really. I dont feel confident with overheads at all so i tend to just let them drop before putting them away. Another is the half volley. Sometimes im able to pull it off perfectly but most of the time cant do it.

WTA is full of goddess', and the ATP if full of pushing, choking mugs¬!!!

Re: Shots you DON'T have in your arsenal

Haha lots of overhead is awful, and my serve isn't much better. Also, approach shots for me are a bit of an adventure...I tend to lift up on them too much, causing a frame, or I'll hit them long.

Re: Shots you DON'T have in your arsenal

My serve is atrocious.

Until a few months ago it was so bad that I decided to serve underhand, I used to miss like every third 2nd serve. These days it's much better, but it's still my biggest weakness, fortunately I have a a good return of serve.

Backhand volley is hard.

Re: Shots you DON'T have in your arsenal

Uh, that fakeout dropshot forehand slice would be a really nice shot to have. Problem is, aside from the top players in the region, no one ever really tries to guess where the next shot is going even when it is really obvious so it makes faking the dropshot useless because they chae the ball where it ends up going anyways.

Also having a twist serve would be really nice. My kick serves are eaten alive ALL DAY. Damn you players who take the ball early.
