Your advice was very helpful, my friend. I just finished beating a guy who had pushed me off the court the previous three times we played, and I did in straights, 6-1, 6-4. Not only did I not try to blow him off the court with every shot (and give him the match with a ton of unforced errors), I was successful in taking away his strengths, his lefty spin serve and his forehand. I did let up a bit after winning the first set and starting the second set break-hold-break, but I righted the ship at 3-4 and went hold-break-hold to close it out.

Re: Your tennis results?!

yesterday i won 6:3 6:2

i was down 0:3 very quick, because i tried to make him run too much
or my ball went way too long (they used a different clay i was used to)
but then i turned on my pusher mode and won 9 games in a row for 6:3 3:0 lead
i served for the match at 6:3 5:1 but got broken - like WTA Tour
but broke him to love for the match

and then the big surprise, the guy was even a bit higher ranked then me, means i will get some points
and will keep my ranking

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?!

Played a practise match and lost 0-6 2-6 to my teammte. We usually play very close so I was disappointed about the result. First set was bad from my side, missed many FHs. Second set was a lot closer, we were very even until 2*-3 but then I lost a lot of close deuce and 30-30 games. I just don't seem to have it at crunch time this season. Hope it will somehow become better when I play competetive again starting next week. :/

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Your tennis results?!

I played a friendly doubles match today. We won 6-4 2-6 10-8 (the last one is a tiebreak). I played quite good. My serve wasn't broken for the whole match and I made few aces and no double faults The tiebreak was such a mess. We had a 8-2 lead and then lost 6 points in a row... We still managed to win it somehow

Re: Your tennis results?!

Yesterday I played my first 2 finals (singles and mixed doubles) in an Open tournament in Dublin and I won both!!! So happy!

Singles draw:

Mixed draw:
http://ti.tournamentsoftware.com/spo...BA90FB&draw=27



Really tough final matches and despite having a negative mentality in the tied moments (I was actually thinking that I was going to lose), I manage to get both victories!

Re: Your tennis results?!

Let's make it short: I make Samantha Stosur look like a mental giant.

I had my first team match some 2 weeks ago and in the first I was trailing behind cos I lost my very first serve until 4-5, then I broke him back and held for 6-5. Then I had 2 SP on his serve, but as I could win now, I got nervous again, a forehand return didnt even reach the net and bounced on my side. I managed to lose the tiebreak 4-7.

2nd set, I was down 2-5 until I started coming back until 4-5, but then my nerves again....

6-7, 4-6 and a broken racket (I have kind of a bad temper on the court) as the result.

Overall, we lost 0-6. Like all of our 3 previous team matches. (I couldnt play in 2 of the 3 cos I was in Italay at that time)

Next Saturday, there's the next team match. Let the drama continue.

Eugenie Bouchard - Naomi Osaka
