    Wow, it's simply amazing how almost everyone here has been kissing the op's ass, especially that drakulie. "Great forehand!" "Beatiful backhand!" "You're a 5.0!" "Heck, you could be a pro!" "You're terribly consistent!" WTF!?

    First with your forehand. It looks armed, robotic, you do not use your left arm in it, and it doesn't look fluid in the very least.

    Backhand. This I guess is your worst shot. Almost all of them you sliced them back, with only a few attempts for a topspin one. You do not seem capable of hitting a good topspin backhand if they were to throw it fast to your left. You'll get pummelled with that backhand of yours everytime.

    Footwork. There was none! You looked lazy, slow, chased the ball very bad, and I don't know, you seemed to run like a little boy when they threw it wide to your forehand side.

    So everyone here please stop kissing the op's ass, and giving him false hopes and lying to him, it's not good to deceive someone like that.

    Here's a little page that will show you what the US rating systems are: http://ww3.telerama.com/~johnv/tennis/tennis17.htm
    You'd fall in a 3.5-weak 4.0 at best.

    And where's that video you said you were going to post, which you said you were going to be in a match??? Still waiting for it.

    <<Flame suit on! LOL!>>

    Slice works really well on carpet courts. You prob didnt notice but I was hitting with a ex top 400 player who was hitting the lines...its pretty hard to hit over every backhand with those balls coming over the net on the fastest carpet around.

    What false hopes?...im not stupid...of course I wont be a pro. If you think im 4.0 at best thats fine....my life goes on :roll:

    I have played a fair few players with US ratings over here...you want the scores?

    It's okay, you don't have to look good in tennis to be a winner. Just ask Santoro.

    I will post one when I can...but I really have nothing to prove to you.

    3.5: 6-0 6-0
    4.5: 6-1 6-2

    Those are the only 2 I have played with computer ratings in the US.

    careful guys, the "real" nickb's personality might show up and get himself banned again:oops:

    BTW, anyone can post scores

    Me vs Roger Federer: 6.0 6.0, the only person i've played with ATP points.

    Just in case you haven't heard it enough already, that is a really nice backhand.

    Yeah, that backhand of his is so amazing. I only dream of hitting like that someday.

    He's just your basic drama queen who thinks he's REALLY GOOD at tennis. If you can't compliment him, then you're obviously trolling him, right? :rolleyes:
