I am a strong 3.0 (female) player with a record of 10-1 at #1 singles. I have an average serve, solid groundstrokes and good volleys but for the life of me, I cannot figure out why I am so horrendous at doubles. I am 34, a long-distance runner and in good shape. I am quick on the court and can get to a lot of balls that my opponents think are winners which helps me out a lot. I am on the shorter side at 5'2" so I can have trouble at then net when I face someone with a good lob. I keep asking my coach what my problem is and she says I'm fine and that I just need more practice. I've only played doubles twice this year and we won both but it took a 3rd set to get the job done. So do I really just need more practice, or are some people just better suited for singles vs. doubles?
