Fair enough, it can get pretty boring in-between matches.

I just noticed you were in California, so we definitely won't play each other

I've only done 1 match so far, but I love the FLEX league aspect. Gives you so much time for scheduling matches and communication with your opponent. Will definitely keep doing many more seasons.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Well, both our school teams (boys and girls) got through without dropping a set. I won both my singles & doubles 6-0, only dropping a handful of points in both. 10 aces, no double faults. Pretty happy.

06 26

I was so unfocused, double faulting like Pova and swinging and going everywhere. I was a mess.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I won 1 game

Had a nice ace and some service winners!

Is it weird to say I'm happy about this? I didn't play all that poorly but my ground strokes were a little rusty. Oh well good practice before the season starts and I feel even more confident now! (If that even makes sense )

Re: Your tennis results?!

Won 6-4 6-2

The guy I played was quite a bit older than me... But could he put some wicked slice on the ball... took me the entire 1st set to sort it out. He made a lot of errors as did I, but I went for a bit more. He didn't use any top spin ever... just fh slice and bh slice His serve was very weird too. Think of Dolgopolov, where he tosses it about 1 inch in the air then smacks it, yet he sliced the serve instead of bashing it. I was standing to return half way between the baseline and service box

Overall, it wasn't too bad. I made a bunch of silly errors, and get too nervous a lot. Somethings like that won't go away, so I'll just have to do better at managing it. I didn't double fault the entire match... UNTIL FREAKIN 40-0 MATCH POINT I was so focused on trying to serve and volley I took my focus away from getting the serve in

2/2 in my matches so far this season. Happy

Darrin is pretty good. I've seen him play live and he can stick and move when he needs to.
