    Do you ever look back on your posts and try to look from a different point of view?

    Without trying to be patronising, I think you’d find it quite useful.

    Welcome to London (in advance!)

    With it being “out of season”, it’s worth contacting the clubs in advance, just to make sure they’ll be open.

    OK, I'm 6ft 4 (just a little taller than Samsonov) and about 50 times heavier 😂

    Speed comes with ability, especially on open ups. So don't think you'll never get there, and have that thought lead...

    I'll add a bit more context to when I said you should be more aggressive.

    Firstly, I've never been too disappointed when I've lost a game on my own terms.

    I didn't mention that second block as it included another filthy fist pump 😂

    As for the backhand flick..... It's not a bad tactic to use - It's worth improving it though, so you feel confident in...

    OK, Gozo my man!

    I've only watched the first video - I find with doubles, people play very differently, and tactics are completely different.

    So I'll focus on the singles match for now.

    Hey Gozo, I wouldn’t disagree with you too much on that, and I’m certainly not saying the Chinese style backhand is bad.
