i feel really sceptic (as always
) after playing 3 sets with sylvie this morning. he can confirm i had difficulties and he almost won this match.
firstly, the serve is really ridiculous sometimes. i never had the feeling to have the slightest precision. my serve percent wasn't bad, but it was never on a line or so. slice serve is now almost useless, always out. i think it's the real weird part of this update.

i was doing unexpecting errors when i wanted to hit an acceleration, so i am a little bit confused.
