I was just wondering how you tennis players on this site play. in all honesty im a cross between Nadal and Henman. a lot of times my defensive forehands finish way over my head like rafa's and i run to net whenever i can and am one of the better net players on the team.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

I'm a sort of rubbish version of Agassi - aggressive topspin groundshots, moving the other player around, 'cept I don't take the ball on the rise like AA. I tend to have mental problems at key moments that you don't see in the legendary las Vegan as well!

Hmm not sure who i play like. I like hitting long and aggressive forehands and topspin backhands too. My serve is probably my strong point once i get it going. Very much a net player in doubles, but baseline in singles.

Hmm, I'm baseliner and rarely go to the net. I like to keep a rally going for a long time hoping they'll make a mistake or just surprise them with an aggressive forehand/backhand. I really enjoy doing backhands, it's probably my best shot.

My strong points: My ability to make a come back in most situations, being able to move pretty fast and I think mentally I'm OK in difficult situations.

My weak points: My serve lacks power and I'm just not that good of a tennis player Wink

I am yet to lose a match in my tennis career.


Guess what, I have never played one.

The only time I have held a racquet lasted for less than 30 seconds.

Me - more of a basliner and long rally person. Some straight down the line backhands and forehands.. aim to tire out the opponent. Wink
Although doesn't always work.. so im trying to develop the volleys and i think it's coming on although need a bit more confidence to go up to the net.  Think

As for me I have a mostly unreliable first serve, but a decent second serve that I'll put something extra on for serve and volley.  I like trying to move my opponent around to force errors with slice backhands, and then occasionally hit over the bh side with some pace (I guess like Andy.. kind of counter-punching.  Will attack with the forehand when desperate.  No drop shot Frown
