Thanks for the tips, folks! I'm off to fix my forehand.

On your forehand, your contact point is all over the place. Make sure to have a consistent setup and hit through the ball rather than under then up. Lastly, use your shoulders a little more.

And my shots are all over the place, too. :) Thanks for the tips!

your serve is not bad. the motion is pretty consistent. i would say your grip is a little too open/flat but you make it work. i know everyone else is going to say not enough body into it. good racket head speed. i would work on consistency

My serving grip keeps eroding away from continental. No clue why. And, oh yes, I really need to work on my consistency. :) Thanks!

It's in Texas. (I'd be more specific, but I captain a team at that club and prefer to maintain some anonymity.)

They are nice courts, though, and less than five minutes by car from my house. :)

Yes, and it's great, if a bit cold on some winter days.
