Re: Your tennis results?!

Okey, today I made biggest choke ever in my life. Lost match 2-6, 6-7(5).
First set no words … errors from me all the time … I actually won these 2 games because of my serve. But in second set I played so much better and lead 5-1! But then somehow my opponent started playing better but I was serving for second set twice. At 5-4 I had 40-0 and wasted 4 SPs. Of course my opponent won next 2 games and lead 5-6. So I was serving for staying in match but was 0-40 down. I saved all 3 MPs and then also another one and somehow won this game for 6-6. In tiebreak I went up 2-0 but lost next 5 points for 2-5. Leveled up to 5-5 but lose next 2 points. It was really biggest choke in my life especially because my service was pretty solid today but I couldn't serve it out. Anyway, at least I showed some fighting spirit when saved 4 MPs on my serve. But I still can't believe that I didn't win this 2nd set. Next time (hopefully tomorrow) more luck!

Played in some thing for school today at Newcastle's District Park where I won my card before losing in the semi's. I choked hard in the semi's and was just attempting to hit winners everywhere, messy match.

Re: Your tennis results?!



I won 6-0 6-0 6-0 today

My opponent was so bad, he let me hit like 10 aces.
Also got back from a few 0-30 and not a single game went to deuce.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Played my first match this year and it was pure gold
We played on a mud court, because this wasn't clay, way too much water on it before and then it didn't dry

I was down really fast 0-4*...played like crap, 4 DFs, no first serve, and my opponent used the shit court and dropshoted a lot of balls, which didn't bounce at all, no matter how fast I ran, I couldn't get them

then I broke him and had a 10+ minute service game at *1-4, still having a lot of issues with my serve and with everything else I hold and at 3-5* I could break again finally, I was playing a bit better, but from 30-15 on, I couldn't get a ball over the net and lost the first set 4-6.

In the 2nd set I was leading really fast with *3-0 40-30 and made my first DF since 3 service games and from there on, everything went wrong
3-1*, *4-1, 4-2*, 4-3*, *5-3, 5-4*, *5-5, 5-6* and in this game I saved 2 MPs and wasted an easy GP after an epic rally (meanwhile our team-mates, who were playing as well, all watched our match) but somehow found a way to break back to level it up 6-6.
In the TB no one could really get an advantage till *5-5, then I saved another MP at 5-6* with an BH DTL, at 6-6* I couldn't play an easy passing-shot and at the 4th MP my second serve got killed (i had one first serve in the whole TB ), but I reached the ball with my BH, but again, the ball didn't jump at all, so I could just push the ball over the net and my opponent had an easy put-away at the net to win the match 6-4 7-6(6)
After the match, I was told, that I won't play tomorrow in the club matches, but that I played really good and I will get my chance the next time

FUCK OFF THE FUCKING COURT

(First official tournament next sunday, with 2 matches then )

Re: Your tennis results?!

Won my first match 6-4 6-2 and my second 6-1 6-1.
This morning I was driving on the road to my tournament (half asleep) and the guy called me and told me that my opponent withdrew and I wouldn't be playing for like 5 hours

Still riding that Ivanovic coaster

Re: Your tennis results?!

Well, very happy today. Win my first match 6-4 6-3

I didn't played well. I was nervous and I don't know why. When the match start, I see than I has more power and better strokes than my opponent. However, I was making a lot of unforced errors and I just win the first set breaking his serve in 5-4*

In the second set, I was more relaxed and my forehand was going with a lot of power on his backhand. So, I was with 5-1 and serve and he broke my serve and make his game serve. When I see than I was making a lot of mistakes to beat my backhand, I enter in "kamikaze mode" and try to make winners in some hard balls. So I make the last game and win the match

My next opponent is one friend. The secret is put him to run and he will not return the ball. Hope I can beat him with more faccility

Re: Your tennis results?!

Ive won both of my matches this summer (play very limited due to weather and school, just a couple months in summer usually). One was 6-3 7-6, the other was 6-2 7-6.

I'm pretty awful I think; my forehand is a straight-armed super push, or a full body swing like Rafa (and then it only lands in half the time). Backhand is much more solid, but I hit everything to the centre of the court. My serve is literally me tapping the ball into the court, making Pin look like Serena. I rush to the net a lot, just cuz I think its fun - I get lobbed a lot, but hit a fair amount of volley winners actually.

Only thing more fun than playing, is making fun of yourself.
