My sister’s eleven years old, and plays with a PD Roddick + Midplus with two 3 inch long pieces of lead tape on it with a ¾ inch grip, is she a freak? Haha. Anyways… She wants to start competing, and I’m trying to get a good gauge as to whether or not she’d do well in the New England 12s. She hits with a one handed forhand, two handed backhand with her strokes at about a varsity girls high school speed with great direction and control, and they’re very ‘heavy’ hit balls. Right now her serves are the most attackable part of her game but with a little instruction I think I can change that. Her volleying is ok, but her overheads and drop shots are sub-par. She’s in extremely good shape and has the stamina to stay out on the court for hours (trust me, we’ve done it ) Her style is very similar to a pre-Jimmy Connors Roddick, a baseline basher haha. What are the girls’ 12s like? How hard are the balls hit/how fast is the gameplay? How fast are the serves? Is good netplay essential from the start or will she be able to continually learn good net play as she progresses into the 14s? Any information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
