I can hit some aces now and again
Some people say my serve is really fast and my FH can be deadly. My Double BH is meh.. ok could be better. I am a baseliner who likes to attack. I cannot volley at all. I'm crap at volleying lol. I got double bagelled today haha by probably the best junior player at the club. he was 13. LOL. Totally Destroyed . It wasn't a nice feeling tho. Its always good tho to play someone who is a better player than you.
Ah god I hate that feeling. Haven't played tennis since I was younger but used to play badminton fairly competitively. I'm a huge confidence player though and a massive bottler (the minute I start losing I just can't turn it around, my head goes). A couple of brothers joined (one a year younger, one about four years younger), both very good. I was better than the younger lad though, but crumbled against him and lose a really close match having lead comfortably. Just lost all confidence after that, not fun getting beaten by someone so much younger.
I wish I'd stuck it out because I was improving quite quick and had beaten a few of guys at my age, but my best mate was the best one there and all in all it was just too confidence-draining losing so often. I'm way too frail mentally.
Problem was, we'd only play half-court singles or doubles due to only having four courts, and I was best in full-court singles, where I could move around the court and stretch my opponent. You just can't do that in half-court singles, it's just back and forth. I hated doubles as well, was all too aware when I was letting my team-mate down, and even when I hit a good winner the "well done" just felt too patronising.
