for me it would be forehand or backhand topspin; I usually don't play like that, I only use a bit topspin if my opponent gives my a slice to answer that stroke offensively
(or special strokes like backhand overhead... I hate being at the net and getting high balls or lobs to my backhand side)

I'd say my backhand is my weaker side, but I can play it consistently and place it well, my weakest stroke is probably my backhand volley.

My serve is too slow, only 121 mph :p

Crap - 2nd serves, volleys, backhand slice
Solid - topspin forehand, one hand backhand (with topspin), 1st serves.

Most people would probably think everything is crap in my game, but these are the areas that are such crap it's not funny.

my backhand sucks, i really don't have one, I try to run around it as often as possible, but I can hit a backhand drop shot.

a highball to my backhand side is defintely my weakest... i also have trouble with my overhead smashes.

my best shot would be a big looping forehand with a lot of topspin placed a lot of depth

My serve: ever since I injured my wrist I somehow can't hit serves anymore.
Oh and my backhand. It's not horrible but it could be better.

My volleys. I mean, I can put away high ones and stuff, but if they're hit low or something, forget about it. I cannot tell you how many volleys I stone right into the net lmao. And surprisingly, my forehand ones are worse than my backhand ones, I think lol

I am horrible at putting away volley's with no pace on that aren't high enough to swing volley or overhead, especially on my backhand. My ad court second serve can be shakey, and my forehand can be horrible if I'm not timing the ball well.

~just an update. after long hours on the practice court, these problems are not issues for me anymore.~

My backhand is my worst shot. The worst thing about it is when is starts to get worse during a match I tend to start slicing every time the ball comes to my backhand.

I've got a terrible backhand stroke, but my slice is very effective when I'm doing some counter punching...
I do serve and volleying though.

First serve percentage is always too low. I never actually count but I'd guess it would usually be around 40% :eek:

Backhand is weaker but I can hit a good one hander when I swing, normally for safety I use two hands.

my serve can be good when placed accurately, whilst I'm not too good at the net.

All the local courts are outdoor clay courts so I normally play better from the baseline :)
