Re: Look at this result...so strange
It happens! And don't I know it. When I was a sophomore in high school playing No. 4 singles on my tennis team, I was leading 7-2, 15-30 in a pro-set match (first one to 8 wins). At this moment, I attacked a short ball. My opponent lobbed a decent shot and I scrambled back to retrieve. As luck would have it, this was our archrivals' home court. The courts were awful. They had about 3 feet of court behind the baseline, then it turned to dirt, with a slight ledge between the court and ground. You guessed it! My ankle caught on the ledge and I rolled it -- severely. I would be on crutches for six weeks. They carried me off the court to the hospital, and I had to default the match. It gets worse. My team lost that particular match 4-3. And even worse, it proved to be our only team loss of the season. There was a senior on that team that year who every time he sees me (which happens very rarely) never fails to begin the conversation, "There's the guy who cost me an undefeated season my senior year!). And all of this happened, by the way, 29 years ago!
