Re: Your tennis results?!
I played my first-round match in the Men's 45 Singles (32 draw) at the Pacific Coast Seniors tournament at Berkeley Tennis Club, and I lost in straights, 2-6, 3-6. I played this guy two months ago, and I made the same mistake I did then: I got caught up in his slowball-hitting game, especially in the first set. I jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the second set (playing my aggressive, get-to-the-net-ASAP game), let a couple of break points go, and went into full Safina mode after that. I'm going to need TWO pints of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie to get over this one.
