I'm going to try a new tactic in the spring championships next week. I'm gonna serve and volley and chip and charge off 2nd serves. What do ya's think? The reason I've decided to do this is because at the moment I am playing absolutely terrible from the back. My one handed backhand has disappeared and my biggest weapon, the forehand has gone on holiday lol. It's a national tournament though. I don't know how I'll do. I experimented tonight in a practice mess around and it was ok. I might do a coaching session on it before the tournament starts though to get advice. One of my coaches is a 5.5+ player (well, he must be that because he got a tennis scholarship to oxford, played at Wimbledon for oxford in the inter-colleges thing and he's beaten an Irish pro ranked 1186 in the world 7 times out of 7!!, he's not ranked though, has never played any pro tournaments but has won one the biggest "amateur" tournament in Ireland. It's not "the" biggest, we have two futures and a challenger but it's the biggest that amateurs play if ya get me.) So, might get some advice from him. What do you think? Worth a shot? It went ok tonight. Am volleying well and moving well at net so, could be a good choice. And my natural gamestyle anyway is to attack. I'm an aggressive baseliner/serve and volleyer(sometimes)/ net rusher. Mostly play from the baseline though.
