Not to well, sadly.
I was up in my match a couple of weeks ago, 6-3 5-2. I was the last match being played, trying to save my team from being swept 5-0, of course, it was a team competition. All of my other teammates were done, and they all came to watch me.
And I, of course, don't like attention. I just wish it was the kid and me, and that's it, no one else. But, they got to me, cheering me on, telling me just one more game, and all that.
Well, I choked.
6-3 5-3, I had one match point, blew it.
I served at 6-3 5-4, blew another match point.
Finally, we each held until the tie-break, no more match points. We then got 4-4 in the tie-break, when I just went away. He won the next three points to close it out, and then next three games as well to go up 3-0 in the third.
And, that was the end for me. All I had to do was to hold once, and that third set would have been close. However, I didn't hold serve once, I just kept breaking him, but I couldn't hold serve.
He ended up winning 3-6 7-6(7-4) 6-3.
All due to my teammates and the fear of being swept. Well, we were swept.
I just got nervous, and couldn't close it out. I probably would have been fine if the rest of them were not there.
