Played last 3 days … in biggest heat (around 33 degrees Celsius!
). I'm stupid I know.
First match was tied
I won first set 7-6(3) and lost second one 4-6. We decided not to play decider becuase both were totally dead after 2 sets. It was interesting match. First set I was down 1-3* but then get back in game. We were holding our serves and in tie-break I was down 0-3 but won next 7 points.
Second set was disaster. I hold service only once.
And service is one of my biggest weapons.
But I didn't have power at all. I couldn't move … it was way too hot to play normal match.
Then I played against other friend and won 6-3, 7-5. It was okey played from me. And what's more important that I'm holding my nerves really well. A lot of times I was down 0-30 in games but was able to hold my serve or break his serve.
Another match against same friend I played first one. This time I won. First set I went up 5-0 but all games went to deuce!! Then lost 3 games in a row (2 on my service) but broke for set. In second set it was more tied and I was serving for match at 5-4 and had 30-0 but he broke me back but again later I played better in key moments in tie-break. It was 3-3 and then I won next 3 points for 6-3 and finished it on 3rd match point.
And today I played against another friend. First set was really weird because in first 6 games there were 6 breaks of service but then I broke in 7th game even though I was 0-40 down.
In next game I was 0-40 down on my service but hold and then he won his service game and I serve it out in 10th game. Second set was better played by me. I didn't lose my service and one break of service at start of set was enough.
I finished match with ace (only one in whole match).
I'm totally not playing my best tennis at moment but I think I started to play very tacticly. I'm changing my game plan a lot. From brainless ballbasher to pusher and then also serve & volley, using slices, dropshots etc. Still I think I'm making too much unforced errors lately but on other side also hitting a lot winners.
