Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

I'm a solid 4.5 looking to move up, of course.

I used to stay back but recent attempts at adding a net game have proven effective. My biggest strength is my two-handed backhand crosscourt - i can hit some pretty nutty angles on that one. Think I can reach 6 or maybe even 7 in the next couple of years.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

Probably 4.5-5.0
To win me a match you could probably have to take me out in wheel chair.

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

im starting to get the topspin and twist serve meaning i can use it in matches for both 1st and 2nd serves and have at least one go in. problem is theres not much pace on the ball right now. nor do i have placement.

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

I'd say I'm probably midway between 5.0-5.5 and determined to improve as much a possible! I play first singles for my college, but the coach unfortunately doesn't push our team very hard, especially when it comes to conditioning. Another girl on my team and I actually asked if she could push us harder, but she refused! How crazy is that? I have to usually workout myself or go with the mens team when I have time. I'm very athletic so footwork and groundstrokes are my advantages, but usually I'm playing people just as good at them so I have to improve on my confidence and come to the net to end points quicker. My serve could be more consistent too.

If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.

Vamos Rafa!

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

I'm a definite 4, coming on towards 4.5! I used the less funny http://pong.telerama.com/~johnv/tennis/tennis17.htm link to determine mine originally. I might be 4.5 on the fun scale!

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

I'd say I'm a 4.5. I'm definately not as good as I could be because I have been out of it so long, so if I played every day I would be better.

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

When young I was a 4.5 in singles. But now as a Senior I'd say a high 3.0 low 3.5. (I hate doubles!!!)

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

id say im closest to a 3.5 using that if im playing well. my volleys need work though and im still not good with the slice serve and cant even hit a kick serve. i am alright with ground strokes and my topsin backhand is pretty powerfull now that i have learned how to hit it good. my forehand can be great but sometimes i hit it a bit short.

In the ITN thing i am a 6

the hitchhiker guide i think i would be a 4.0

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

Yeah I can't really tell using hitchhiker's explanation but in Australia we use the ITN (like chewy stated) and I am about 5 and using the link chewy provided I am around level 4.5
