You didn't make a choice of 'I don't play.' So I chose 'WTF is tennis?'

I play about every 2 months. I don't even own my own racket; I have to borrow my sister's. I'm not very good (especially at serving), but I hold my own.

Soooooo I now play number 1 doubles on my JV team, and I have only been playing for about 2 months. There are kids on the team that have been playing for 5 years.

Pure skills.

sweetness

i'm currently injured, blew my shoulder serving, popped my wrist returning a serve, and i have a lil tennis elbow

but i used to play 2nd, 3rd, and 4th doubs i keep moving around but always 1st doubs during the tournament

since i'm a sophomore my coach likes to play all the juniors because they all need to be trained for varsity next year

That sucks about the injury, what kind of serve do you have? I have a fast slice first serve and a slower slice serve for my second. And I never have any problems like that.

I can't imagine blowing my shoulder on a serve. Ur Crazy

my first serve is always a flat unless i feel like changing it up a bit

my second, lately i've been doing a lot of kick serves but i like to switch up a bit between american twists (slick serves) and slice, sometimes when i'm against lazy kids who hate running i'll prolly throw in a spoon serve (underhand slice) just for kicks
