I do attack the net a fair bit and I can hit aggressively off the ground but the point is I don't have a shot to blow people off the court. Without a big weapon, it is very difficult to make up for a lack of movement in singles.
But, in a 55 and over 4.5 tourney; I could be competitive in singles and doubles.
Then I'd like to see some videos of you playing, or at least practice hitting. I think I might learn something, and anyway, as you can probably tell from this thread, I love tennis videos.
