My smash. I'm okay if I let it bounce.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

My volleys are worthless. They quickly find out if I'm at the net, all they have to do is hit it to me about three times and I'll mishit it. I guarantee..........

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

Second serve always bad and FH from deep. I like FH's inside the court where you can whip them to the corners and come to net but deep FH's I simply suck at, I put them too short and not enough spin.

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

Serve.

I've had patellar tendonitis for 2 years (have yet to fully recover) and I've basically lost my serve, in the meantime. I'm now serving like Coria...can't get it into court, and have totally lost confidence in my knees and my ability (or lack of it) to get any serves in.

Have you tried bending your knees to a really high degree and just unleash all your energy into the ball?

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

backhand are my worst but it since I went to a 2 hand backhand it's been a lot better.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

2nd serves. I have a decent kick serve but it just sits there and my opponent can easily take advantage if he sees it, so I try to mix up my second serves throwing in slices and some flats, but it drops my 2nd serve percentage. The worst is when I need the 2nd serve to stay in a game/set/match.

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

Smash - mediocre at best. I can't put them away with much power - bizarre since I have a relatively big serve, so I tend to just slice them into the space now. Annoys the hell out of my opponents who think I'm playing safe, but seriously, it's all I can do!

Backhand drive - similar to a number of posters here, I have an inconsistent single-hander. Great for passing shots, even better than my forehand...but useless in a baseline rally where I more often than not mis-time it if I go for it. Thank god I have a good slice!

Re: Whats Your worst stroke?

1)Forehand on high topspin balls,when I dont have time to take them before they jump too high.
2)Balls that are coming to slow and I begin to think a lot how should I hit it or where should I put it If it comes fast I have no problem as I dont have time to think.
