I took up tennis during August and it is my senior year. I know this is a really late start but I want to try out for the tennis team. So far, my forehand is decent and my backhand is okay but not as reliable. I still don't have a serve, can't slice, nor volley well. My footwork isn't too bad as I've played HS soccer for three years. Now tryouts are in February and I have not had much time to practice due to college apps and stuff. But I have decided starting this week, I'm going to get as much practice in as I can get. It's hard for me to find a hitting partner to hit more than once or twice a week so I was wondering what drills I could do by myself? I was planning on just going to the tennis courts 1-2 hours after school everyday to work on my serves and do some suicide/other footwork drills? Also, I've heard both good and bad things about planning against the wall so I was wondering if this would be a good idea.
