Heyy, names Alicia
Im from scotland, 15 years old, I play tennis to a pretty high level. One of the best in my country.
Heres some videos of me, old and you dont really see me hitting but yer:
Hi, what is your ranking in UK in your age group? Are you a matrix player?
I don't think that it's fair using TennisW to promote your own forum.
errr this isnt to promote my own forum., Its just in my siggy if anyone wants to check it out. They dont have to if they dont want to.
Im 20 soemthing in the UK.
And what is a matrix player?
"Matrix" is a system developed by the LTA (UK Tennis governing body) to support financially top and most promising young players. There are 3 categories, A, B and C. Your coach or your Academy should know that. But if you need any other help with that matter feel free to ask me.
p.s. I only complained about promoting other forums on TennisW because TennisW is giving maximum freedom to all their members and we should respect and not abuse that.
Never heard of that in my life wow. Im coached off judy murray but i still pay her £20 per lesson which generally lasts like an hour and a half.
Hmmm. Judy Murray is actively involved in the LTA and obviously in her sons tennis. She absolutely adores her Scotland and Scottish tennis. So I can not believe that her or anyone involved with her and training you will not introduce you to all the benefits that you deserve. Futhermore regional LTA are regularly visiting all clubs, training centres and Academies and they would have surely have told you that you are qualified or not. And to reach 20 something ranking you surely have been in lots of tournaments so again I don't understand how you have slipped through the net not to be seen by anyone.
I dunno, mabye she doesnt think i deserve money? I dont really. LTA have never been at a club im at, only good coaches have been, not lta people though.
But yer, im coached by her normally twice a week, without her i wouldnt be nearly as good as i am.
Judy Murray is travelling 35 weeks per year out of the UK.
errr no she isnt. Clearly you dont believe me, ive been coached by her since i was 12.
She goes away to england a lot but generally shes around a lot of the time.
Excuse me, do you know her?
edit: and she generally only goes away for 2 or 3 days at a time. She always makes time for me. Generally on sundays at stirling university. Come and watch =)

Shares her experiences from around the world of tennis.
Day 8 - At the Aussie Open
I'm frazzled having been sitting out in the sun for about three hours on 'Brit watch'.
Laura Robson, who is the fifth seed here, had a tricky opener in the girls' singles and had to come from 3-5 down to beat American Christine McHale on court 19. She had a few problems with her ball toss which seemed to affect the consistency of her serve but when she had to raise her game, she did and gained a straight sets win.James Chaudry followed her on the same court, he was playing against Chinese Taipei's answer to Eoighan Quigg, if you watched the X Factor you'll know what I mean, there is way too much hair but the kid could play. He's a really flashy leftie, who is double handed on both sides. His name is Hsieh (pronounced Shah) and he took the first set 6-1 in double quick time but James settled at the start of the 2nd and started playing a better height and depth and his opponent started to miss. James took the 2nd 6-2 and there were 5 breaks of serve at the start of the 3rd which I have to confess I missed due to falling asleep behind my shades! I was so tired after that 3 hour Dokic marathon last night.Hsieh took the 3rd 6-3 and he proved to have just too much firepower and variety for our boy.
So Andy went down in 5 sets to Verdasco in a strange match which swung one way and then the other but the Spaniard just played (and served) that little bit better in the fifth. So that leaves Jamie in the mixed doubles tomorrow and a bit more time for shopping and sunbathing of course.

Yerr, i went to juan carlos ferro[s academy too, personally i thought they focused too much on weight training.
Your point is? Youve got things mixed from different years there, I dont know why you're throwing a fit, surely you arent that jealous that she's my coach, i mean she is good but not THAT good. She left me three things to work on while she was at the australian open:
getting my serve so i can hit it from the left side and it will bounce over the tramline after one bounce 8 times out of 10, getting quicker up to the short balls to do somethinf effective with them, and improving my volleys when i get a lower volley.
Mhmm, ive never really been to bothered in exploiting her jsut because of her sons famous status, she doesnt like that crap. She likes to be known for being the good coach that she is.
Juan Carlos Ferrero's academy
"Amongst all of this I took a week to go to Bressuire with some of our best 11 & Under and 12 & Under players. It was like going back in time!"
