Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Not really much to say.
Just hoping to find some people to casually hit with... :)
I really, really enjoy hitting, but enjoy vollying for fun more than a competitive match.
In terms of an NTRP rating, reading the descriptions... I would rate myself as:
Forehand --3.5+ (Depending on my energy level at the time. I usually try to put a some strength (and a little top sping to keep them in) into these)
Other shots --3.0+ depending on the shot (sometimes I have great, strong and consistant backhands, and some days, they just don't seem to come together very well)
Overheads are probably my weakest shot (likely linked to my ultra crapy serve).
So I guess that makes me a decent line volleyer (which is what I most enjoy...), but only a 3.0 avg at best in games mainly due to a seriously pathetic serve and I suppose do a degree, lack of competitive spirit...
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
I'm REALLY dating myself here, but I'm going to go with John McEnroe. lol.
Ever since I was a kid growing up in NY, and after continuous begging, my parents finally let me go to tennis camp one summer. And one day, John McEnroe showed up for a practice session, and as a kid, that somehow stuck in my mind as the coolest thing. Pretty laim, I know...
