Post an honest self-assesment of your game
Im interested to see what are peoples general strengths and weaknesses in their game around here
- Can move quickly around the court in all directions and recover well
- Big first serve with reasonable %
- Decent on the volley
- Horrible second serve and %
- Flat backhand, especially down the line. Top spin ok.
Self rating: approx 3.5.
Strengths: everything other than serve
Weakness: serve. It is consistent but not powerful enough.
nice idea for a thread! i'll play!
-good pace, depth and placement off 2hbh
-attack off return of serve
-can push opponent off of baseline
-struggles with placement on serve
-forehand can breakdown
-prone to brainfarts
computer rated 3.5 but lately i'd say closer to 2.5! :cry:
- Flat hard FH
- Change direction/peace/plan
- Flat serve (when on). I'm using only 1st serves, usually with good %
- Decent flat BH
- Don't let opponents get into any kinda of rhythm
- Drops shots (when on).
- Moving backwards
- Jips on the toss and even on the serve as a whole
Self rated 2.5 (by US standards), 3.5 Canadian L:
solid all around serving
top spin backhand
ROS is adequate
Strengths: FH, serve
Weaknesses: Return, topspin two-hander, moving forward
conditioning/willingness to work
MID COURT GAME
first serve percentage
return of serve
Not going into too much detail....
In between: Net game... I can hold my own against most but I'm mainly a baseliner. As far as forehand goes... it's still good at the level I play in. I can still rip a winner a bunch of times, but it's a tad inconsistent for me to rate it as a great strength.
4 star recruit, class of 2014
-not match tough
-boredom (especially with groundstrokes)
Now can a 4.0 actually have ANY strengths?? For instance, is a strong 4.0 serve really a strong serve?? I dont think so, so this is kind of pointless.
Return of serve
Rating: Solid 4.5
I'll bite, great idea for a thread!
-Mental strength. I very rarely get rattled on the court.
-Full-Run CC backhands. It can really
-On the run forehand. It can put up weak returns.
-2nd serve reliability. I'm currently restructuring my kick serve, so I am averaging around 3-5 DF's a set in singles right now.
-I tend to play it too safe/get complacent in real match play with playing the higher % shots, and not taking enough risks changing directions.
I went 8-0 at 4.0 and 1-1 at 4.5 this year, so I am looking forward to the (hopeful) bump up!
Didn't finish a sentence there.. It is a great shot to go from Defense to Offense for me.
first serve: change spin and placement with high percentage
second serve: twist and kick serve with good movement
return of serve: both wings and on both sides love running around on the
solid groundstrokes on both sides and can flatten out on both wings when needed
too slow: two major back and ankle surgeries
can't play two tough long matches in one day
try and end points quickly thus making too many unforced errors
make mental errors on point construction
get bored during matches and can lose two or three games in a row
try stupid drop volleys instead of putting the darn ball away
-Rally balls (both sides);
-Good second serve.
-Inconsistent first serve;
-Return of serve.
My favorite shot is the high inside-out forehand and I use it often.
As for my approximate level of play, I have no idea. Usually, people fear me because all you see of me in hitting sessions are things I do best... in a match, my serve and return do limit my abilities.
I refuse to post this info since some of my opponents come read this message board. :)
(Most everything at one time or another, but the following are especially usually bad)
- Competitive desire
- Shot selection
- Volleys (usually, although sometimes I surprise myself with a decent one :))
Rating based on league match play
tricky drop shots and other junk
lack of patience
