played the guy i have NEVER beaten before, who hates floodlights. before I had won a set 6-4 and 6-0 against 2 different players, and THE WALL retired 0-3 down. happy days ! first time i've beaten him in about 4 years i,ve been playing. Not really a proper win but il take a retirement .

Won a Mixed Doubles competition at my local club today . Had to win 4 matches to take the title . Won in the final 6-2 , 6-2 with my partner. Chuffed. I think that's me done as far as doubles comps go. Lost a men's singles first round at a club I've just left last week 6-3 , 6-1. Played too negative and served woefully.

I'd work on your returns. Over the years, Ive found that if you can deal with a guy with a big serve, the rest of their game seems to crumble a bit, by figuring out a way to deal with and breaking the big serve, its a way of saying. ' yeh what else you got?' I don't know how big a serve this guy has but what I do is stand about 4 feet back and as he goes thru his motion, I step up and skip to one side, he's always gong to see me move then he D/Fs. If his fave serve is down the T I stand wide to make him think I'm covering the f/h then I cheat across to cover down the middle and vice versa. It works. I return great against all but the best serves ( at the rec level ) most rec players have baby 2nd serves, they push it so take way the big serve, look em in the eye and say ' yeh, what else you got mate? '

Hi Matt,

We all hit plateaus in our tennis career. The good news is you can make major improvements in your game every single year.

Here's what I'd suggest: Why not have a friend or partner video your next competitive match? When you watch that video, you're going to spot plenty of weaknesses in your game that will give you an idea of what to work on next. Try not to get overwhelmed. Just try to keep track of how and why you're losing points, common mistakes in how you're hitting the ball (or where you're hitting the ball), that you keep making over and over. Then prioritize the 2-3 things that might have the biggest impact on your game, and work on those, either with a teaching pro or on the practice court.

Video is such a great tool for improving quickly. Most people don't take advantage of it. But today, even most digital cameras and smartphones take decent video. So there's no need to go out and buy special equipment.

Good luck!
