Just for fun, tell me which girl you'd choose to play with and why. Girl 1: Very consistent baseline game, not a lot of pace but good spin and depth. Balls are kind of loopy. Decent serve, some okay UMPH on the first, second is just placed and low with medium pace. Has a forehand and backhand slice in the bag. Two-handed backhand but no penetration. Can place it well though. Athletic and decent hands at net. Great forehand lob, bad backhand lob (short majority of the time). Good smash. Lefty. Girl 2: Punishing forehand but not as consistent as girl 1. Balls drive through the court and are low most of the time (not completely flat though, has good spin on the forehand). Places serves well, very low, but not a ton of speed. Two-handed backhand that moves quicker than girl 1, but can't place it as well. Mediocre forehand lob, better backhand lob than girl 1. Good forehand volleys on balls that are shoulder height, lacks on the lower balls. Great backhand volley on balls over net height, again lacks when lower. Good smash. Can't retrieve as many balls as girl 1 can. Doesn't have a forehand or backhand slice - limited to forehand and backhand drive. Righty. I used to think girl 1 would be the better mixed partner by far because of the retrieval skills and consistency, but after playing with both, assuming they are both on, girl 2 has surprised me. Much harder for opponents to attack her shots and her forehand draws errors / sets me up for a put-away. I consider girl 1 the better singles player, but girl 2 takes the marbles in doubles for me. How would you choose?
