Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

My 2nd serve (my 1st serve is pretty good), and overhead smashes.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

OK bad-rep me if you must but I happen to have a complete game. I do everything well. My problem is a lack of consistency. I do everything exceptionally well -- but I do not do so all the time. I allow some opponents to intimidate me and then I forget my own game. I lose when I cannot recover from this and get back on track. I win when I keep focused on how damn good I am. Word.

Mine is actually gettin' better. It's really streaky... one day I'll dominate with the backhand, the other I'll shank all to the bottom of the net.

Not all Croats have a good serve!

You will have to serve great to beat Xristos but I doubt it

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

My backhand (one-handed) down the line gives me a lot of trouble, I could probably hit it right 1/10 times it's ridiculous.

can't blame you for your ego
hope i had your inside out forehand if it's really that great coz mine is all over the place.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

My worst shot keeps changing. Used to be my back hand [1h] could only slice it, now I spin it a little and it got a lot better. Second serve sucks big time, I fear df's so I hit it to save My first serve rules, if it could only be more consistent
Mostly my fh is good but there are days I just can't hit it good, on these days my bh is mostly top
Overhead gives me no trouble thanks to my volleyball history.
Volley's are good but I'm often in doubt if or when to approach the net so I find myself midcourt and outplayed. Hate that!

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

My forehand. I stupidly try and copy Edberg's strokes and it's next to impossible to get clean shots using his stroke method. Though on the flip side, I'm fairly proud of my backhand.
