Re: Your tennis results?!
I played my first competitive match in nearly a year--after nursing plantar fasciitis and tendonitis in my hip. I was playing Toledo--and I steamrolled through my first match, winning 6-1, and then teamed up to win the doubles with a partner. I proceeded to play my final singles match of the day--and I found myself down 2-5 15-40 playing no-ad scoring under USTA rules. I essentially just started somehow winning points, and I save 6 match points--and I force a tiebreak. Now, under team tennis rules, a tie break is first to five, with 4-4 being sudden death. After saving six match points, I battled all the way to a tiebreak, and managed to hold my nerves to save my seventh match point and win the match.
I'm unbeaten in Club Tennis this year, which is pretty damn impressive.
