Played on clay
Lost dubs 4-6, went down *2-0, returned well to get back to 2-1*, I completely fucked up a service game, HORRENDOUS SERVING
, went down *3-1, returned very well while my partner was pissed, hit the guy at the net with a monster FH in the chest(
) and he was winded for a minute
. Then recovered to go up *4-3. Broken to love again (I never won a point on serve in dubs
), my toss was all over the place, couldn't even SLICE it in. at 4-4*, went up 15-40, but my partner flubbed an easy volley, I stopped returning as well, just hitting CC ones back to the server, and they won the game
. at *4-5, got to 40-30 from 15-30 down, then wasted 3 or 4 gps with really bad volley
or me not going for a volley and my partner not reaching it. I became the liability
, and while my partner saved an mp with a running FH (I finally got a volley in on that mp) we lost a couple of points later.
Won singles 6-2. Served first, but served well to save bp and hold. Broke him easily and got broken on a few over confident shots. Broken again before getting broken from 40-15 to go 3-2*. However my returning was GOAT
and I was hitting huge FH's
. Broke him, then held to go up 5-2*. he was getting really frustrated and berating himself, especially after I hit a CC FH winner on defence, scrambling to the deuce corner to get the ball back after he hit a big FH
. Did the same thing again in the last game and hit 2 big FH's that were on the baseline in a row forcing errors to win. My serving was pretty good today for my standards, 1st serve 8/14, 2nd serve 5/15, 3 service winners, 0 aces, and 5 doubles. Pretty happy with today, can't wait for the tourney in September.
