Anyway, what's your playing background? While you might hate on your footwork, the thing I noticed immediately was that you're light on your feet.
I've been playing for a long time but never took tennis seriously until college. I suppose you could say my greatest "accomplishment" was getting the opportunity to play for Stony Brook University. I had my shot as a walk on then got into it with the coach. Unfortunately, I was a hot-head back then which = bye bye. Stopped playing for a bunch of years and now I'm back. I currently play USTA 4.0-4.5. Unfortunately, I'm stuck at 4.0 thanks to very poor 8.0 mixed showings and a slew of inconsistent partners for mens (attendance wise). I'm hoping to change that this year. I've tried to cut out all the bs, messing around and have been working on staying consistent and not trying to pull the trigger all of the time.

Oh and I also play professional beach tennis, haha. Definitely has changed the way I volley
