Love how you both try to outdo each other in the "nah I'm worse" stage.

What's your game style then?

I'm a counter-puncher.

Lobbing is one of my best weapons too btw Very Happy

My first serve percentage is diabolical, I pretty much rely fully on my sluggish second serve. That's going to be the most exploitable thing.

I can do some powerful forehands but then I need to be brave to do it in a match so I'll probably just be passive and hope to get an error out of you.

I don't do net play.

I'm quick. I'm good at miracle shots on the run.

Your turn? Be transparent for fairness!

LOL OKAY LETS GO. My style depends on who I'm playing. I'm aggressive only when confident.

Lobbing: good.

Net-play: Always needed work in singles, but I was really good at doubles (you played both at my school), so I'd say when I manage to get up there in singles, it's a fairly good chance I'll put it away.

First serve: I'm consistent in terms of not DFing but my serve has been really weak in terms of spin and speed. Like really weak. You could do a lot with it in most cases.

Second serve: LOLOL don't even ask, so bad.

Forehand: I'm good at guiding it where it needs to go, but my two handedness hurts the speed factor.

Backhand: Stronger wing but only when I'm consistent with it. Otherwise it's Error city.

in terms of spin
Sorry, did you just say 'spin'? Right... already you have shown you are more advanced than me. I have one serve, I don't have the ability to mix it up. It's just the same flat old serve and most of the time it doesn't go in (1st).

I said it's weak in terms of spin! How is that a good/advanced thing?

It sounds like you can choose whether to put spin on it.

How are your drop shots?

I used to able to do them but totally forgot after not playing for ages. Now can't do them, not that I bother much.

I do them when I'm being a *****. Otherwise, I don't like to.

Interesting.

I get the feeling my only chance to beat you will be taking advantage of your gender.

Not sure, I was looking at http://www.londontennis.co.uk/

No idea if it's a good website.
Looks a good website. Looking at some of the descriptions you should probably give a brief description of some strengths and weaknesses and when/where your available to play.
