I live in an area where hardly anyone plays tennis, so i have almost nobody to ever play against...and those i do have really don't challenge me. I'm not a great tennis player or anything, but the people in my town are just worse!

So does anyone know any tennis drills that I can do on my own that will help improve my game?

I found a wall to hit against and it has really helped my game. It seems kinda boring but if you really love tennis it's fun. At first I could hardly volley against it, now I can stand there all day. Great for groundies too and dialing in your strokes. Throw in some slices etc.

I also purchased a basket of balls to work on my serve. Obviously one of the more important shots and great to work on alone w/ a basket. Not the most fun shot for me anyways but something a gotta get down to win. Especially the second.

Do you have access to a ball machine? Aim for for lines, T, angles, slices, drop shots etc.
