4.0, high school #2 (controvercially 2, I was pretty clearly better than the 1 when I was put there, but coach hates me)
I´m 5´7, have terrible form on my serve (I face the court) but nonetheless my 1st serve is a weapon. 2nd serve isn´t great, but not awful
I´m 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. I´m considered one of the better ones mentally in singles, not so much doubles.
Volleys suck, overhead is worse. I´m 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.
