Default Re: The "Who plays tennis?" thread

4.0, high school #2 (controvercially 2, I was pretty clearly better than the 1 when I was put there, but coach hates me)
Im 57, have terrible form on my serve (I face the court) but nonetheless my 1st serve is a weapon. 2nd serve isnt great, but not awful
Im an offensive baseliner I guess, reformed pusher. Inside-out forehand my best shot, I switched to a 1-handed backhand pretty recently but usually just slice it.
Mental toughness is a strange mix of epic comebacks and huge chokes. Im considered one of the better ones mentally in singles, not so much doubles.
Volleys suck, overhead is worse. Im a bit Federerish in that I get big serves back well, but struggle with getting neutral on easy ones.

Biggest strength is forehand, variety, adapting. weakness is return, net play, backhand, overhead for sure.
