Re: Your tennis results?!
Played 3 sets today. Opponent was a retriever and counterpuncher. I squeaked out the first set by breaking in the last game for 6-4. My opponent took the second, 6-4. Then I broke and held to open the third. Then, serving at 2-1, 40-30, I hit a shot that bounced on the net cord and fell over, landing on the line. I was standing 10 feet away, just on the other side of the net. I had a perfect view of it. My opponent LIED through his teeth and pointed at a mark 5 feet away from the place where it landed, and said it was out. Opponent went on to break me that game, tying the score at 2-2. Unfortunately for him, he also enraged me, and I used my anger to my advantage, refusing to be broken again and finally winning the match at 13-11 in the third set. (We don't play tiebreakers.)
