I have hit with college players and challenger level players, and as someone said before, it is the weight of shots that is what kills amateurs. I am a very big guy, and I have trouble making solid contact with my ground strokes and volleys are a nightmare with their spin. It really makes me appreciate the beauty of the top pros game because I know how hard it is to play like that.
How are you still a 4.5 if you can hit 125MPH serves??? Most guys I know that play in that range would have a lot of difficulty with that!
Just teasing of course!
