Yep, Leeds University is in... well, Leeds!  That's a city in the north of England, about a 45 minute drive away from Manchester.  There is a football team - Leeds United, but not being a football fan I can't tell you much about that!

I can't serve that well, but I love serving ! I like to play with the spins and motion, and to practice against someone else. I just love the extra pressure that comes along. That's also the reason I like to play tiebreaks, I perform better under pressure :).

Forehand!

And volley as well. I like to go to the net a lot only because I always run out of gas to last baseline rallies.  I wish I could, though.  Really need to do some cardio.... :)

For me it's backhand drive cross-court and down the line.

I'm having a tough time with my forehand at the moment: I seem to be following through very low (not going over my shoulder as I should) to try and get more 'whip' on the ball. It's very good when it goes over the net, as it gets down to the feet of the volleyer, but generally, it's a bad habit I need to get out of.

I am pretty sure Scott was just telling me the other day that he used to follow through very low on his forehand and payed dearly with tennis elbow or a sore shoulder..........he can confirm this!

I am pretty sure Buckeye's favorite shot is Jack Daniels or maybe Wild Turkey.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

Anybody here likes doing double-handed forehand? I know some people doing it, and it's a pretty powerful weapon.

I used to have a two-handed forehand, but that was a while ago.  Occasionaly, I'll play lefty for a little while and I'm actually pretty decent.  I always wanted to be a lefty.  :(

A bunch of women play with two-hands on both sides, Bartol, Peng, Sanchez-Lorenzo(retired), and I think its either Morigami or Nakamura.

I used to play two handed forehand in the begining because I was coming from a cricket background to tennis. Now I do it when I have time usually to slice, sometimes if i have a lot of time I switch to a cricket bat / baseball bat grip and hit the ball hard and it usually goes out.
