Re: Discuss YOUR tennis

I played tennis again yesterday, after 5 weeks without playing cause a minor pain in the shoulder. Looking pain free now.


I've made some muggery, but still got the win. 6-4 (i was down 1-4 and two breaks down), 3-6, 6-2.

Re: Discuss YOUR tennis

I am now 16 and I started playing tennis when i was 5 or 6 but i played it in my street not on courts.
23.8. 2011 i started playing tennis regularly. Usually 3 times in a week, but I didn't play last winter and one month this summer, after that i started playing about 4-5 times a week, and now, I play only 1 because hall with court is about 3 km away from my home and it takes me 45 minutes to get there!
I think my ntrp is somewere between 4.5 and 5.0, but I still haven't developed any specific style of play!
When our "summer" season starts(april) I plan to play 5-6 times a week for about 1-2 hours.

Can you help me with this:
I know i must spend some time in gym, but because I am not a professional player, will it be enough for me to do exercises (with or withouth dumbbells) at home for about 1 hour ?
My height is 189cm and my weight is 72-3 kg and I want to develop deffansive style of play. Will there be any problems because I am relatively tall, and should I loose some weight or not ?

Re: Discuss YOUR tennis

Won some more singles 6-0 and 6-2 ( very boring went 5-0 and just got bored 2nd set) then had a epic that I won 6-2 ( played poor) then lost a set 6-0 ( no chance ) and went 2-0 down in second then stopped. Tried a more basic approach to getting topspin and it worked well at times .

Re: Discuss YOUR tennis

Narrowly avoided the biggest choke ever against a friend trying a new racquet. Won the first set 6-2, routine stuff. He's an error machine and I'm on fire, and soon it is 6-2 *5-0 30-0. At 30-30, I have a sitter with the whole court, hit it right back to him. From 30-0 that game, I lose 24 of the next 28 points to be down *5-6 (I also have 0-30 with him serving at 3-5), where I promptly go up 40-0, hating myself. Then go up *5-1 in the tiebreak, miss a sitter. Suddenly it is *5-4. Decide to just retire after losing set to avoid killing myself. Telling myself it is over seems to help, as I hit a very big serve he just tips then while still telling myself I am certain to lose hit a big second serve followed by a dropshot to win it.
So what looks like a sure 6-2 6-0 became 6-2 7-6(4)

Re: Discuss YOUR tennis

played the war horse in floodlights. lost the first set to love then got to 4-5 second set and he retired due to being pissed off with the flood lights lol. defintely my proudest achievement so far considering his vast experience and his very attacking game.

Re: Discuss YOUR tennis

Played some grueling singles last week . Went down to practise serving with a new racket and ended up playing 3 sets with one guy I know winning 6-2 , 7-5 , 7-6 . Then lost a match . 2-6 , 6-4 , champions tiebreak lost 10-8 . Also played in the worst condition ever in a tournement . Played The same Tennis Warhorse I mentioned earlier and won 1 game in 5 sets . Played pretty well . There is ONLY ONE way to be a proper good player and that is be aggressive .

Re: Discuss YOUR tennis

I also think it's time I made hitting flat a treat more than being my usual finishing shot .
