    I'd say consistency/patience i can hit crazy shots but in rallies i try to finish it too early at times

    Mental. If I'm not using a racquet to my spec's, and I know it, my game goes to hell. Anytime I play someone for the first time, my neves destroy me.

    it's all in my damn head

    it always has been...

    I have a game that (maybe) could have done a bit better than it ever did, but I find ways to lose hitherto unimagined, and I do it at crucial times.

    This is why I win a lot of consolation tournaments because I'm a seed who lost in the first round of the main draw to a 4.5 who was playing the open for experience..

    Hey, Jamison, come to Australia, with any luck you will draw me!

    where to start!

    right now mostly mental, I am in an Agassi phase, where I actually hate tennis but cannot stop playing but when I play I am not focused and therefore movement breaks down and therefore my shots break down etc

    technically my second serve, backhand groundstroke and forehand volley need work

    10 Metre Monfils clay/grass/hard slides =D thats my main weakness.

    I SUCK at backhands, One handed, two handed whatever backhand. Im trying one handed backhand since i don not like the short swing of the two handed, and like whipping my racquet through the air.

    Footwork is a major weakness as well. When im rallying my footwork is ok and i have correct body position but as soon as he crosscourts or down the line my footwork/balance is terrible, i stand with my feet very close together because its a habit. and when i reach for the ball im off balance and find it hard to go back to recovery position.

    First serve percentage, second serve quality, forehand.

    Worst of all, I am a slow/sluggish starter (a lot of 1-6, 7-5, 6-1 wins in my track record) with an anxiety disorder.

    So basically everything except the backhand.

    I use to have a mental problem playing matches, now I have that corrected.

    My movement has always sucked.

    Im working on it though.:smile:

    My backhand is weak. Sometimes it is very wild or too long.
    But biggest problem among all is my serve which is weak and lack of control.:evil:

    Whatever I don't practice is my weakness de jour.
