So what I want to see is how smart do you play and how hard do you work. How do you translate that into match play.
I understand what you're saying. I guess my point of posting this video was to just get some general feedback, nothing specific. Just to make sure there was nothing majorly wrong with certain strokes.

Also, from that one volley you hit, it seems like you have some technical issues there.
Yeah my backhand has always been a struggle. I've just recently been able to start to feel it building in consistency. And volleys are usually much better I was just kinda fooling around when I hit that one.

how much time and effort go into your training?
do you have a competent coach? possibly someone with a college tennis background? he/she could evaluate you much better than we based on a few minutes of video
Probably about a year to a year and a half? Only coach I've had is my high school coach who knows very little about tennis in general. I plan to play some tournaments during the summer.

At first it was a bit hard to keep track but I've learned to ignore them. And yeah I feel like I have better footspeed than actual footwork so something to work on.
