Yesterday me and my Team had our 3rd Tie for this Season
unfortunally i had to work from 6am to 2pm
and the Tie was scheduled to be start at 2pm
i asked my Boss and he agreed i can leave at 1pm
but since i had a lot of work i just left at 1.20pm
i rushed home, got a shower, and arrived at 1.50pm
the match was very intensive, many really long rallies, a real clay-court match.
i broke him for a 2-1 lead in the first set, and this one break was enough to win the first set 6-4.
My Forehand was really good yesterday, and i think this was the result of my amazing Footwork.
My Footwork yesterday the best i ever did, i never stood wrong and i did a lot of small steps between each single stroke.
At the beginning of the 2nd set i felt a bit tired, a result of 8hrs of work before my match, and also a result of the energy i put on running around my weak Backhand to bring my Forehand more often into play.
I broke him at the beginning of the 2nd set
but he broke back and held for 1-2 lead
i held and broke him, and was leading 3-2
then he broke me 3-3
i broke him 4-3
he broke me 4-4
i broke him 5-4
at this point i was already empty , moving left and right wsn´t a problem at all, and i still got amazing balls back, but always when i had to move foreward my legs hurted.
But i said to myself "don´t let him know you are tired, move your ass and win this in two set"
so i served for the match at 5-4 and i knewed this time i need to hold my serve.
it was again a avery intensive game.
he was up 15-30 and then he played a long ball on my backhand side and moved to the net
but i was able to run around my backhand and hit a forehand longline from my backhand corner to make it 30-30
i think this was a very crucial point, 30-30 instead of 15-40
he never reached a Breakpoint in this Game, but i missed 3times ADV and so on Matchpoint before i used finally my 4th Matchpoint to win the match 6-4 6-4
i was really happy and empty after the match
it was also very important to win it, since it was the 4-2 for my team
i alos won my double 6-1 6-2 and so my Team won 6-3 overall
