Re: Your tennis results?!

^Tough luck

Anyway. *insert lengthy amount of swearing*. Lost my first comp match of the season 5-6 (6) leading *5-3 and *6-2 (:eek) in the TB

It was doubles and while I was quite good overall it turned into a fucking mess up 6-2. 4 errors off my racquet. Tbf they were great on the mps but I did: FH error, FH volley errpr (after my partner hit 6 excellent volleys in a row), FH return error and a FH error chasing a lob which my partner probs would have returned

Two matches to go and I swear if I choke again...

Re: Your tennis results?!

I have beaten my roommate in less than 1 hour and 20 minutes for the next result: 62 60 63... I had 2 flops... 2-0-->2-2* first set
and *0-3-->6-3 third set... My FH worked fantastic today which is unusual. 6 aces (Servebot Cheda since 2012 ), a lot of DFs (reminded me of my fave), and some great backhand CC winners.

Re: Your tennis results?!

My last matches had gone quite well. Dating back to December last year I'd won 3/4 of my club matches. Two were chicks (one of which seemed frankly disinterested - not the kind of match that's nice to play), but my latest one was a straight set win over a guy who'd beaten me in a STB last year . Even the one I lost despite winning only 4 games I hit a lot of winners and we were playing in rain.

Today was my club champs. Hell no I wasn't playing in the top division, but I still was excited . Well...first match I lost 6-7(5), 7-5 (4-10) . The guy is my teammate, I'd never faced him before. Unfortunately I just ended up playing his game really. He pushed a lot and hit lots of deep loopy shots. I'm not very tall and can't deal easily with those. I don't really think he hit them for that reason though, I think that's just his game...and way too often even when the rallies were in neutral or favourable territory, I hit a dumb error. Or instead of just focussing on getting the deep loopy shots back and waiting for a better opportunity, I tried impatiently to do too much with them. This was definitely a match to learn from though. I could've won, even in straight sets . Next time more patience.

The match was almost 2 1/2 hours long . So at least it was a good workout.

Second match I won 1-6 6-4 (10-6). Not much to say really. It was a guy I'd played 3 times before and never lost to. I was still tired and sad from the last match and basically not present but I woke up after being down a break in the second. I started sometimes grunting even. Maybe 'cause I was tired.

Doing surprisingly well. 3-0 for the season thus far.

This includes 2 wins over people who beat me fairly easily last season. So I'm not sure what changed but let's hope I keep doing the same things that are helping

I start my league team next weekend which I'm excited for. Hopefully I get to play.

I played with one of my club mates and won 6-4 7-6 (2)

The upside is that he just reached the semis of his age category masters event, albeit lowest tier, so I'm probably good enough to start competing in the local pro-club tour

The bad news is he filmed the match and sent me the vid and I play... Ugly.
Sissy game with awful footwork, rushed serving and just wrong technique all over.

He really ought to be ashamed that I won, it's embarrrising that I beat anyone at all.

I'm so feminine in my shot production, I play more like an elegant Madame then a 28 yo guy ha!

Re: Your tennis results?!

1-6 5-7. Same ol' . Apart from two matches, all my losses since December have involved at least one close set or STB .

Saved a bunch of MPs at 3-5 and 4-5 (mostly his fuck-ups, but hey, I still didn't miss , and I did hit one winner and a good serve on two of those) only to get broken at 5-5 anyway .

2 more weeks and the season is over . I'm gonna get some coaching for the first time in ages after that. There are still so many basic things I barely or don't know how to do well .

Re: Your tennis results?!

Looked through my results this season and close sets and matches I've lost. Obviously STBs are in brackets.

6-4 (this one was in a win)
7-6 6-4
(10-5)
(10-8)
7-6 (10-4)
7-5

There was only one lost match that I felt like the other guy was way too consistent and I was way too bad, I had no chance. The next time, I played the same guy and scoreline didn't look good but that time I hit way more winners than he did. So I couldn't count that as a close match but it wasn't too far off.

I've got two more matches to finish things on a good note .

06 57.

Had *5-3 and 2 SPs at 5-4*.

Then I turned into a tantrum child and broke my racket. So disgusted in myself. Clearly have no tennis mentality. Can't just fucking focus. I always have to do something stupid

Maybe 1 day I'll learn.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Finished in first place in my doubles indoor league... Of course 75% of my opponents were at least 25 years older than I am

After smashing my racket, I bought a new one and played my same friend.

And I beat him 63 62

We've played one another over 50 times (literally, no joke). This is my 2nd win off him in 6 years.

Both times I've won, it's been on the 29th day of the month. Last win was January 29, 2016
