Well done not easy to hit through the 2nd serve when under some sort of pressure. So I'm guessing you're an aggressive baseliner.

Re: Your tennis results?!

6-0 6-1 against my brother two weeks before on clay

We had so nice weather that we still could play outdoor

Re: Your tennis results?!

Well, I played my R1 match not long ago and much to my surprise i won it very easily! 6-1 6-0 (This is in a small tournament in a town near where I live with some national ranking points and a little bit of prizemoney).

The guy I played against played a really bad match and I didn't have to do too much. But I still played fine and kept my head and made sure I stayed on track. The guy I played had bought a new racquet the afternoon of the match! He didn't know how to play with it yet.

So I'm feeling pleased with myself and am very happy because I'll now get an Australian Ranking! A minor goal of mine.. hehe

Tomorrow morning I play the 6th seed who should beat me easily, but I'll have a go and see what happens. Wish me luck.

Nice big congrats
Must be such a great feeling to win 6-1 6-0, you always hope when you play a comp like this for the 2nd time just to get a few games on the board, so well done.

And good luck in your next match

Re: Your tennis results?!

Thanks Ben! Well I've had the hugest day ever. Played 6 matches today (7 hours on court) and I'm sooooooo tired.

I lost my R2 Open singles match to the 6th seed 2-6 2-6. Then lost the consolation draw match 6-7 2-6.

I'm also playing in the "graded singles" which is more like a social comp. I won the 1st round 6-0 6-3 which put me into a QF match I was dreading. It was against a 10 year old kid who plays verrrry well but is soooo small he looks like he's about 7! I was down 1-3 but thankfully turned it around to win 9-3. I play the SF tomorrow.

In the Open doubles we won the 1st round (more ranking points! ) but got double bagelled by the top seeds: the last match in a very exhausting day. Phew!

I can't imagine playing 7 hours of tennis for a day, unless I was super super fit But I'm sure you'll get better & better with the more matches you'll play

Well, the Australian rankings just came out and after my big efforts described above, I'm now ranked 925 in Australia

I'm really quite chuffed about it actually

Congrats no, that is really awesome. A national ranking is just great to get considering the fact that you don't wanna go pro or anything like that, & at your age & when you started playing tennis is excellent.

Keep it going!

Re: Your tennis results?!

I played this dude in Division 4 the other week and I won 6-0, 5-7, 6-1.

It lasted almost 2 hours and a half, it was the longest match I've played in the competition. I won the first set rather comfortably, I didn't play great but my opponent kept making errors. Then in the second set he played much better and the momentum changed—don't know what got to me. He led 4-0 before I regrouped, but he broke for 6-5 and I lost the set, sadly. I was nearly dead by the beginning of the third set but I still won 6-1, I suppose he was tired too. I'm glad I won, it was good quality from the beginning to the beginning of the third set—one of the best matches I've enjoyed playing. It was very ugly tennis at the end though.

Congrats, I guess your agressive baseline hitting style of play helped you to win. I read about your description of your gamestyle in that other thread
