Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Observation, Analysis and Evaluation of strengths. Strengths - compared to performer below own standard. Service The serve is a strong point in my game and this helps allot as it's the start of every game. My preparation is very good with correct positioning of the feet and grip, this is better than the performer below my standard as he stands with both his feet together and grips the racket with his index finger pointing outwards. The low serve is my strongest point in the service, this is mainly because my shot positioning is at quite a high standard definitely higher than that of Owen (performer below own standard), this is due to me having good feet positioning allot of balance and my hand eye co-ordination is at a high standard this giving me good timing. The follow through is a very important part of the serve and I carry out this at a much better standard than Owen as he doesn't tend to follow through at all. My recovery is much stronger than that of Owens as he doesn't seem to be bothered about the following shot and just waits for it to come to him and if it's returned short his opposition is guaranteed the point. My serve is overall much more affective than Owens and allot more accurate. ...read more.

My recovery is also about the same as Laura's. My serve is overall more affective than Laura's and allot more powerful with a little more accuracy. Drop shot The drop shot is a strong point in my game and this helps allot as it occurs in every game. My preparation is very good with correct positioning of the feet and grip, this is better than the performer above my standard as she stands with a to wide stance even though this ensures stability and balance it is harder to recover quickly. The long drop shot is my strongest point in drop shots, this is mainly because my shot positioning is at quite a high standard definitely higher than that of Laura's, this is due to me having good feet positioning allot of balance and my hand eye co-ordination is at a high standard this giving me good timing. The follow through is a very important part of the drop shot and I carry this out at about the same standard as Laura maybe a little bit more powerful. My recovery is much faster than that of Laura's as she takes a wider stance to carry out the shot making it more difficult to recover the shot. My drop shots are overall much more affective than Laura's and allot more accurate. ...read more.

Conclusion

The follow through is a very important part of the smash and I don't carry out this at as high standard as Laura as she does tend to follow through quiet well on this particular shot. My recovery matches her as my recovery is a strong part of my game. My smash is overall less affective than Laura's and her accuracy is perfect where as mine is not so good. Justification of weaknesses Areas of improvement I can improve all aspects of my game as I am not yet at a very high standard of game. But my main area to improve which stands out as very poor would be the smash, I also need to improve other aspects of my game if I wish to compete at quite a high level. These other core skills I would need to train would be Causes of weaknesses net play and clears. If I was to improve these I would be back at a high level of competition. Causes of weaknesses The main problem with all aspects of my game is I haven't belonged to a racket club for over 2 years now this meaning I haven't competed or trained for over 2 years also. If I wish to improve my key areas then I need to return back to training and take it seriously to catch up on what I have missed out on.
