I almost had a golden set!!

Friday I was playing my team's #1, (I play #2). I lead 5.0, 40-0, when I couldn't believe what was about to happen, therefore I missed two easy points, but then won 6.0 and took the 2nd set 6.0, losing about 10 points.

lol yea. he's a senior, i'm a freshman, he won the tri county tournament last year at #1 singles, which is composed of the best teams in our league. i knew that i could have a really good year playing #2 but maybe a losing season at #1...alot of teams have some awesome seniors. but i'll probably play #1 for our last few matches to get some experience for next year.

hs tennis is nothing like the actual tour. I least I doubt it is. If you beat him like that, you should be the #1 regardless if you are a freshman. We used to have matches all the time to determine rank when I was in hs. Start now so you are the best in district next year.

A golden set would mean you won all points and all games....

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Similar situation to me about 5 years ago, I was 12 then.

I had won all the pts, opponant serving 0-5 0-40, I dumped a service return into the net, but then won the next pt.
His poor dad

Thereby just losing 1 pt in the set/match. [only 1 set comps when I was 12 ]

Two main reasons:

a) INJURY: I cramped my leg at 4-0.

b) It was windy, cold...... He got better and I thought more about how to finish it without to risk getting more injured....
