I'm not surprised. Agassi used to really hit through his shots during the warm-up, especially against rookie players to try and intimidate them.

Yep. I laughed aloud when I read about it in "Winning Ugly" too...although my friend/partner had me doing it before. Wouldn't be surprised if that's where he picked it up.

Love the title of the book. It's inspired our team's adage for mishits: Ugly...but Over.

Overheads and a kick serve are the things I am most obviously missing.

You completely disregard lobs as a shot and cannot hit a second serve with a decent amount of spin.

here. let me show you the door.

Can't serve!

Volleys are not great.

My pathetic attempts at overhead smashes provide good comedy for my opponents. I've lost count of the number of times that I've reliquinshed control of a point and allowed my opponent back into it with a very weak overhead.

Haha, I can relate to you on that one!

I've more or less given up going for the Hollywood big smash now unless it's unmissable. I use the slice smash quite a lot, not macho but it's easier to execute and at the very least if you don't win the point outright you get your opponent way out of positino with it.
