Re: Your tennis results?!

Played another match in our clubs ranking tournament today, and.... I scored my first win

Won easy with 6-0 6-2

I played quite solide and he had nothing to hurt me as expected. Just had to move him to win most of the points. Serve was a mess at all until the middle of the second set, but it didn't matter. Even served it out with an Ace then.

So nice that I finished my first season with my goal to win a match. Can't wait for the new season now.

Re: Your tennis results?!

today i played my best match ever
i beat my team-mate who is supposed to be way better then me 6-2 6-3
i won a few sets against him in the past, but i never beat him before, but today was just the right day.
First of all i have to say that he didn´t played his best tennis today , but usually it´s still enough to beat me, i just win a few more games when he has a bad day.

Pusher is probably the best way to describe my style, i often stay 2 meter behind the baseline, and then when my opponent gets short and i want to attac i went long. Also my backhand is very bad. My Forehand used to be good, but often i´m not brave enough to go for my shots.
Today all came together, my Forehand was never better, i mixed my shots good, and even when i steped into the court i found the right lenght, and i even dictated alot of points with my forehand and was able to end them with a winner and not with a UE´s
My Backhand was solid, i hit a few nice back-chips short behind the net who gave him a lot of trouble, and i was able to keep the UE´s low on the Backhand.

i know i will not be able to play alway on this good level (good level for my standard) but i hope it gives me more confidence for the future
because it showed my how much better i can play

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?!

Beat my friend Gina 7-5, 7-6 [9-7] today. We got to play at a country club and I was grunting a bit and this guy came over to ask me to shut up because this woman he was trying to give lessons to couldn't concentrate and she was doing these pathetic little sex grunts. So every time I hit a winner I would roar COME ON.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

Instead of Come On you should have pumped your fist and yelled Ajde! right at him

Re: Your tennis results?!

today i lost with the same Result i won last Friday
2-6 3-6
but i´m still satisfied with the way i played, i went for my stroke, i tried to dominate the points and played offensive
in the first set i felt really tired and i was a bit late and sometimes not in the perfect position, second set it was better and my forehand came better, played some really great forehands down the line, but my friend played better in the second set too, and he was a bit more lucky too, once he broke me with 2 netcord balls, and he hit the line often
but like i said before, i´m still satisfied, it seems like my Game develops into the right direction

Re: Your tennis results?!

played against this guy in my club(i guess you can call him my nemesis or watev) on Saturday.. coming into the match i had lost to him like 6 consec times ..anyway, surprisingly i won the 1st set 6-4, then went down 0-4 in the second, and was able to win that 6-4 as well.. i just started going for broke on everything, returns, serves etc and it worked ..at one point i even did a sliding split type thing while running down a ball wide to my FH (Kim would be proud ) ..his face at the end though, priceless
