So, I'm a strong 4.0 top spin player, who at time can hit at a 4.5 level when I hit up with the right person. What goes up must go down, I hit a good friend of mine recently. His skill level is most likely a 3.0, but hit with him cause he kept asking me to hit. Every ball he hits is flat - NO SPIN. Many fall just over the service line :? I have no time to set up and sit back on my shots. :cry: What was the results, tragic - cleary my play skill style drops like a sack of bricks in the ocean.. I looked like a 3.5 at best Anyone else experience this when they play down or am I just not skilled enough dictate, full disclosure I'm a baseline player who likes to grind opponents and force an error - not come up to the net and hit winners rarely.
