Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

I'd say good 2.5, bad 3.0.

So somewhere inbetween.

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

I guess I'll go first.

I'm a 3.0-3.5 player.

My strengths are my movement, my backhand, and my return of serve.

My weaknesses are my inconsistent forehand and a weak but consistent kick serve.

I've played consistently for about two years.

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

4.0 when I'm playing my game properly. Good forehand that can take advantage of short balls and good from almost any court position. Fast but inconsistant serve, inconsistant backhand.

The greatest backhand pass ever.

fucktard. n. A special variety of retard whose condition arises not from clinically demonstrable neurological impairment, but from buttersnap shitfuckery of the mind.

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

not sure about the numbers, but a description and maybe someone can help me out?


Serve: I just recently got my shit together and starting hitting great serves, high percentage, 2 df in 8 service games, last match

Forehand: devastating, but inconsistent. think, Gonzalez

Backhand: VERY inconsistent, sometimes i hit with 2 hands, sometimes w/ 1

movement/speed: awesome footwork, rare shanks, VERY fast

return of serve: somewhere between inconsistent and total joke

so, whats the score?

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

I don't think I can vote in this poll, because if I picked up a racket right now I would probably play like a 2.0 according to hitchhiker's scale.

Re: What LEVEL at TENNIS are YOU?

Right about now I'd say I'm a 4.0, maybe a 4.5. I used to be much better (around 5.5), but I've been concentrating on volleyball and healing some nagging injuries over the last year or two. If I practiced I think I could be a 5.5 again.
