Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

Forehand drop shot. I never hit it or practice it.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

I've got a terrible backhand stroke, but my slice is very effective when I'm doing some counter punching...
I do serve and volleying though.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

First serve percentage is always too low. I never actually count but I'd guess it would usually be around 40%

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

Backhand is weaker but I can hit a good one hander when I swing, normally for safety I use two hands.

my serve can be good when placed accurately, whilst I'm not too good at the net.

All the local courts are outdoor clay courts so I normally play better from the baseline

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

My backhand is my weakest. I'm forced to revert to slicing a lot of the time. But I can really whip my forehand so I step around my backhand and hit inside out a lot.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

I simply dont have a serve which has any pace on it at all. Although it is accurate, and i have a high first serve percentage, it is so much slower than everyone's elses that i lose serve more often than i hold. Then again, i make up for it by breaking serve just as much.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

The overhead by far, its funny because I never practice them before matches because once they see me missing them they will use that during the game so I just avoid that lol.

This weekedn playing doubles they where just throwing me lobs I hit about 50% of them which is good for me, anyway knowing that I suck at that I just try to hit them in because I dont have any real control on them, so I hit my best smash of the day but with no control, it bounced and hit the player at the service line in the face I said sry but they where still mad, then I go tmad because they give me 20+ lobs knowing that I cant hit them so the probability that one will hit them is high.lmao.

After I won that match the next doubles match I went down to my regular 20% on lobs and I actually completely missed one . Lol

The wierd thing is my serve is above average to good yet I still cant hit an overhead.

Then the forehand is probably my weakest stroke because im so inconsistent. But the rest of my strokes depend on my movement if im moving well I will hit them well but if not I will have probles with all of them.

Amen. I have lots of problems with my one-handed backhand and my volleys if i'm not moving or reacting well, I just don't get set up. With that said my serve is scary bad, I have no rhythm.

Whatever... FOREVER.

I have a good 2h BH. Why? I used to play with both forehands while kid (left and right) and I'm still able to do so... so I give my BH a lot of power with my left hand. Push forward with your body while hitting, and do it the higher you can.

Always flex your knees and put your right foot 45° from your waist.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

My serve is terrible, it has absolutely no pace whatsoever. It's probably about 2mph or something!
My backhand is really terrible as well. My one-handed backhand is really inconsistent and wild, but I sometimes find a two-handed backhand awkward to hit. High balls to my backhand are even worse!
actually, pretty much my whole game is terrible! I just have to hope it will improve.
