NOTE: This is for high school-level tennis. I have a scenario for you all to give your opinion on and why. I want you to decide which player should go with this player: Main doubles player --projected #1 in singles --BIG serve, especially the first --right-handed, 2-handed backhand --very strong forehand, solid backhand --loves to go for winners --solid at volleys --11th grade, 6'3 Here are the 2 players to compare: Young Talent --projected #2 in singles --powerful first serve, weaker second serve, neither has slice --right-handed, 2-handed backhand --solid groundstrokes, able to hit winners on good occasions --solid at the net --9th grade, 5'7-5'8 --experience in quite a few USTA tournaments Experience(me) --projected #3 in singles --faster first serve than the freshman, rarely double faults, can use slice and flat serves and sometimes a kick serve --left-handed, 1-handed backhand --powerful forehand, solid backhand which has very effective slice --great touch at the net, can hit half-volleys easily --12th grade, 6'0 --no USTA experience --has lost to the freshman before in local tournament --has played with the main doubles player in 1 varsity match previous(won 3-1 ret.) The freshman is better than me in singles, and he has better groundstrokes than I do, but his serve isn't very damaging like mine. I'm also lefty, which would complement my partner. My slice serve would also help him at the net. What I don't know: does being better at singles necessarily mean one is better at doubles?
