    Advice on what I can improve?

    I play some USTA tournaments (usually level 6) but lose a lot. I tend to struggle with consistency when it comes to match play and suffer from nerves when it comes to important points.

    Advice on what I can improve?

    BTW, I have spent all summer trying to build myself up - At the beginning of June I was 6'0 125lb and now I am 6'2 137lb, so some progress there, but still a long way to go.

    Advice on what I can improve?

    Here is a video of me playing: https://youtu.be/EESpMiEA1p4. What can I improve to take my game to the next level? I am open to any and all suggestions (footwork, technique, positioning, etc...). For reference, I am an 11th grader and play 1st singles at my school. I have been playing for ~5...

    Missing easy shots?

    I completely agree with you that I have some weaknesses, and I can clearly see several of them watching my own video. What would your suggestions be to improve these weaknesses? I obviously can't get a coach right now, and clubs are closed, so should I focus on doing drills on my own? If so...

    Missing easy shots?

    No, I was just tired from working out before. I like to workout and practice together, so that probably somewhat contributed to my lack of footwork and lazy playing style (although I do have a very laid back style of play).

    Missing easy shots?

    So I basically need to try to move more? And to not be complacent when a ball is coming towards me?

    Missing easy shots?

    I have been missing really easy shots recently (slow volleys, medium-paced balls coming right at me, lobs, slices, etc...) for no apparent reason. Is this a mental thing? How could I fix it? Here is a vid. I am the person closest to the camera.

    My game sucks and I have no power, no spin, and lack consistency.

    I agree that I am not bad compared to a 3.0 or 3.5, but what could I improve in order to take my game to the next level? How can I improve my consistency? I know I can play a lot better than this, I was doing it last year.

    My game sucks and I have no power, no spin, and lack consistency.

    I got this racket restrung in late June. It's about 30 degrees here so that probably explains the balls being flat.

    My game sucks and I have no power, no spin, and lack consistency.

    I am a high school sophomore and have been playing for about 5 years now. I used to take group classes, and even a few private lessons, but have played primarily for school or with other people for the past 2 years. I played a lot of USTA last year and won a lot (I play in the Chicago area, it's...
