I am playing and taking lessons right now during the fall indoors. I might enter a USTA tournament this winter, but I usually don't play tournaments, just high school. I am the captain of the Boy's Tennis Team at Franklin High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am probably going to play singles 2 this year, my senior year. I don't mean to brag, but in our third season as a program we won 3 meets including a tie for first at conference, and put 6 of 7 courts through to sectionals. We finished 8-2 in conference play last year.

Our number 1 is a great player. I practiced with him quite a bit this summer. I want to find people to play outside of Wisconsin. Yeah, I like this thread. +Ernie- is quite a good player from what I hear as well.

My USTA record is nothing to be proud of

I've played in 3 tournaments in the last year, and I've lost 0-6 0-6 in the first round of every single one of them

It's not that I suck that much, it's just that I get nervous and I can't establish a rhythm I get to deuce and then CHOKE

Ooo, that isn't good. Hey, it is USTA, don't put pressure on yourslef. Play for fun, not because you have to compete for a living.

Do you agree with the USTA ratings? I don't. I can beat players probably in the 5.0 range because I'm more mentally tough than most, but if i was rated, I'd be a 4.0.

You mean the NPR something something whatever those letters are ratings? Like the ones with 4.5 5.0 5.5?

I don't really agree with them either...but it's more because I'm quite an inconsistent player One day I can be up there on the chart but the next I can be as bad as a 2.0 . Haha, no really, not THAT bad but you get my drift.

But yeah, I guess it's for fun...but I'd like to win..

Oh and I play city tournaments once or twice a year whenever they have them I never get far in the doubles I suck at doubles, can't make it past round robin. Actually, can't even win a single game

But in singles, I got to the Quarterfinals before I had to play my teammate from school It was such a tight tight match, I played my heart out, and I still lost...2-6 2-6 I choke under pressure Meaning...I don't fair well when it is no-ad scoring

My summer was , I was definitely slumping. I just started in 16 and unders, and I'm starting to get better results. I play district sanctioned tournaments under the USTA.
First tournament of the fall *anything to get out of my horrendous summer*:
1st round: 6-2, 6-1
2nd round: 6-1, 6-2
Round of 16: 6-7(5-7), 4-6
I doublefaulted on match point , only double of the match. I was down 1-6 in the breaker before reeling off 4 straight points. Then I missed an easy backhand, my better shot. That match definitely hurt, but my opponent was quite good.
Second tournament:
1st round: 6-2,6-4
2nd round:1-6,6-4,7-5
This is probably the best match I've ever taken part in. I felt like Serena , because I saved *6* match points and came back from 2-5 in the final set.
Quarters:0-6,2-6
This was my second match of the day, after my marathon comeback. I was exhausted both mentally and physically. Of course, it didn't help that the kid I played is AMAZING. He probably would have beaten me fully fit anyways .

Martina/Serena/Venus/Monica

Lindsay*ElenaD*Milagros*Mary*Svetlana*Nuria*
Mashona*Dinara*Laura*Chrissie*VeraD*JelenaD*Lucie*

Ana*Sania*Shuai*Katarina*Nadia*Chanda*Ai*

No. There are no provinces to the NORTH of Canada, really. Only territories- Yukon, Northwest, and Nunavut territory.

Saskatchewan is like...major country town.
