Re: Your tennis results?!

Played today in a USTA Boys 18 Singles tournament

I won 6-1 6-1 and will play the number one seed tomorrow at 12:30 so no pressure

but yeah this guy was really inconsistent he hit about 10 double faults and after those 10 he would serve an ace then hit 10 more..lol. But I played pretty good I hit 2 aces out wide that he didnt even touch I normally don't hit aces so this suprised me a little and felt pretty good. My groundstrokes were more consistent then his after like the 3rd ball he would go for a winner and miss badly or he would hit a poor drop shot and give me a easy ball to rip.

But all in all a easy match I hate playing the first match of the tournament because I'm always nervous but a win's a win!

Re: Your tennis results?!

I played interclub competition today. I was out drinking til 3am the night before and my match was at 1pm. I was a bit hungover!

So I was making lots of mistakes at the start and lost the first 5-7 and kept playing stupidly going down 1-4 in the 2nd until i finally got my shit together and won 5-7 6-4 6-3. In the 2nd half of the match there were not many UEs so lots of good rallies and winners.

Then we had the doubles match which we won 6-4 6-3. I even served my way out of a game from 0-40. That was fun. :-) My shoulder's a bit sore, but a good day. Very tired now and going to have a good night's sleep.

Re: Your tennis results?!

played doubles yesterday - we won 6-2 6-3 6-4
in second set we´ve been down 1-3 and came back twice from 00-40 afterwards - lol
didn´t played good, specially my volleys sucked big time

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Your tennis results?!

Just won a match 6-0 6-1, I was in the zone for the most part of the match, ooooh it feels so goooooooood!!!

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Well done. How did you get on today?


I have a match vs a cocky rich guy tomorrow. I beat him a couple years ago when I won the mens tournament at my club but then he beat me the year after (I was injured though) so I really need to show him who's boss tomorrow. He's really good though; he's very aggressive, just like me, and he's been playing so much recently whereas I haven't because of my back so it should be interesting.

Re: Your tennis results?!

On my highschool team ive just been promoted to third singles so our 'coach' made me play just a set against the second singles player. I wasnt hitting any backhands during the warm up so I wasnt thrilled to play him that day.

My opponent plays IDENTICALLY to Wozniacki but with a better first serve. every ball is different from the other one. He moves great. Can only flatten out his backhand though.

So I serve first get broken at love. I ten start hammering returns in. So it was a break fest up to 3-4. He then held and i was in no mood for a fight back so he won 6-3.
He was moving really welll and I returned well until the last game. My biggest issue was that I got one first serve in the whole match. 1 for 26 (ish).
Luckily I hit no double faults which can be troublesome.

Re: Your tennis results?!

1 for 26, man, how can you do that? You really have to do sthing about this man, and by that time, should have been spinning your first serve in a bit more.

Ugh I lost vs the first seed in the tournament 3-6 2-6

Well I played pretty decent but I couldnt close out the many deuce games we had which really made the difference it was much closer then the score but I couldnt take any of my chances. He had good variety sometimes he would kick serve then hit a hard flat serve so I was sorta guessing on what he was going to do next b/c he wasnt predictable. I Was way to nervous anyone know how to get over nerves during a match?

Re: Your tennis results?!

Unlucky.

I'd say just focus on something like your strings between points, do a Hantuchova and take your time to compose yourself and grunting also helps if it isn't forced.

Split steps are a great things to concentrate on when you are nervous, cause usually the first thing that goes when you are nervous is your reaction time. Especially against a player like the one you played again, who was varying his shots, you need to react and move fast, so instead of thinking about what he will do, or what you'll do to return his serve, just think about your feet moving well and your body and mind will do the rest and react properly. And the more you do that, the less nervous you'll be.

Forgetting to split step when nervous is definitely something I do all the time and this usually works
