Re: Your tennis results?!

The last match i won was 6-2 6-2.

My serve actually bails me out of a lot of desperate scenarios now. Scenarios that my crappy backhand, footwork, and general technique can't be bothered to save me from

Re: Your tennis results?!

I am competing in a NTRP 4.0 tournament this weekend, which will be my first tournament in over a year. I'm hoping to take it slow, and play well and hope for the best.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I won my first match of the Ultimate Tennis Fall season (4.0), 6-1, 6-4. I got a high percentage of first serves in, I kept the unforced errors to a minimum, and VOILA! A straight-sets victory. Funny how that works, isn't it?

Absolutely I had been double bageled three times before this, so it was time for me to double bagel

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.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Yes!! Yes!! At last!! At last I came back in a match, I'm the ultimate choker and this happening to me is just amazing!! I led in the first set by 5-0 15-30, ok he wins the game nothing wrong, just serve it out now, mmm broken at love, ok his serve is not good I'll break him now, horrible game from me, 5-3, damn serve it out NOW!! ok broken at 30-40, then 5-4 he's serving, wake the f*ck up!!! 15-40 ok ok, miss the superpower return, 30-40 hmmm let's push he's also nervous, I won the set!!! then in the 2nd I was playing horrible coz after being so tight in the 1st set I relaxed, down 2-4, then I tell myself this hasn't ended yet! this has just started, I get 4-4 and I break him for a 5-4 lead with Serena Williams spirit, I think I made a winner return out of 3 of his 5 serves, then 5-4 serving for the match, getting tight again, 0-40, I don't even know how I came back but I got to deuce, then advantage him, I got to the net with no common sense, he tries the passing shot on the backhand side but I catch it with 2 hands and make a drop volley, deuce, big serve, advantage me, then some pushing he finally fails and OMG I won!!!!!!! The first unchoke I've ever commited!!

Re: Your tennis results?!

I just finished winning a 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 marathon against a kid who had to be 20 years my junior.

First set: I just plain got smoked. I could tell during the warmup that my opponent had no backhand at all, but I never got a chance to hit him one. I was getting around late on his first serve, and my feet were stuck to the court.

Second set: Streaky, streaky, streaky. I won the first two games (hold, break), then he won the next two games (break, hold), then I won the next two games, then he won the next two games, then I won the next two games to close out the set. My footwork was MUCH better and I started to find his backhand.

Third set: I started hold-break-hold to go up 3-0, then held serve the rest of the way. Only one of his service games didn't go to deuce. I put a lot of pressure on him, and it paid off.

I don't know about anyone else here, but it takes me a LONG time to decompress after a match, especially when I win. It also takes a while for my 45-year-old body to recover after a tough three-setter. It was worth every ache and pain, though.
