Re: Your tennis results?!

Had an epic tank on Sunday, and our team lost their first match all season. That's what I get for going to brainless ball basher as my plans A, B, and C.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.

Re: Your tennis results?!

6-3, 6-0, 7-6(2) today. Played really well in first 2 sets. Actually it could have been 2 bagels ... lead 5-0*, 30-15 (in first set) but couldn't take chance. And 3rd set was disaster! Was down *0-5, 15-30 but somehow made a comeback. Don't know how though. Really my best comeback ever.

Rampre – Hercog – Kvitova – Lepchenko – Date Krumm – Kerber – Mattek-Sands – Hsieh – Cetkovska – Stosur – Kolar – Makarova – Lucic-Baroni - Safarova – Lisicki - Muguruza - Zahlavova Strycova

Re: Your tennis results?!

Played a tournament in Germany yesterday

1st match was some huge piece of shit. I broke the strings from both of my rackets at the warm up, so I had to play the full match with my broken racket. I even managed to win a game, but of course lost 1-6 0-6 The sadest fact about the match is that it would have been definitly winnable He had a good forehand and a nice slice-serve but the rest wasn't good at all...

Luckily the tournament had stringing service, so I had a new racket for my second match. Opponent was much better of course. He had a fast serve and was a total ballbasher which I hate to play against... lost 0-6 3-6 but I'm still happy with my play in the second set. Hit some awesome return and forehand winners. But still have to work a lot on my backhand and serve.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Well today was a total shitfest and I now have a easy way of beating my friend, I can't believe he's sponsored and ranked in juniors and has made finals of White tournaments especially after his play today. I normally play like a Sharapova, bashing a ball wherever I can however I knew with the wind that would just miserably fail so I played like a major pusher and because my friend is also kind of a pusher when people push him he gets crushed mentally because he has no real weapons, his serve is weak, forehand and backhand are just average, he can volley well and if anything his lob is his weapon..

So we held both our serves to 6-6 before I managed to cruise through the tiebreaker 7-4, I played the worst that set, I couldn't jump for my serve so I was serving like Errani on a bad day but of course I just pushed him and eventually he made the error and the rare winner.

Second set, easy, hit 2 aces in the first game, managed to hit a few backhand winners which is terribly rare for me and produced a few beautiful dropshots, was about to bagel him but he put me off when in rage he hit the ball over the fence, which ultimately just pissed me off and I even told him to stop being a brat. He won that game, I won my serve, he won his serve and I held again to take the set 6-2.

Last set, he gave up after I broke him twice. Again I hit some nice winners, especially off the forehand return I probably hit 5+ winners just off forehand returns from his serve. My serve crumbled a bit however I just directed it in good place and sliced it and he either hit it out or just made it harder for himself by trying to produce topspin and most of the time putting it low. Last two games he cracked the shits again, threw his racquet twice, I hoped they'd break because he was just being a complete bad sport. Match point I hit a perfect forehand winner down the line that not even Serena could get

Shaking of hands was weird, he had his head down because he knew I was pissed off at him. Final score 7-6, 6-2, 6-1. I think I hit more winners then unforced errors, take one or two.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Another LK-tournament in Germany today AND... I scored my first win on German ground

1st match: lost 4-6 1-6
I was up 4-2 but then my opponent figured out that pushing is the key... He nearly pushed everything to my backhand and waited till I errored from there. My backhand was better than last week but still not good enough.

2nd match: won 6-0 6-2
It wasn't that easy as the score says, had a lot of deuce games. My opponent made tons of errors so I mostly only tried to get the ball back into good position. Also hit a few awesome winners at the end

Was your opponent a higher LK then you?

Hopefully, then you would get a few good points

Re: Your tennis results?!

I played for the first time in nearly two years the other day after my injuries, on the new courts for the HS I graduated from. Just for fun, with a friend, and we played five sets over a span of about four hours with multiple rest breaks in-between sets (sometimes games) to deal with this Georgia heat. It was an interesting and fun experience, with the final score being 1-6, 6-3, 6-4, 0-6, 2-6. She won (yes, I said she), and the sets that I lost were not competitive (as you can see). We hadn't hung out in a while, so it was interesting for our first hangout to be across the net. Some good laughs, some cursing... Overall, I enjoyed. I'll never play competitively again, but I will still play a match or two with good friends.

Serve was GOAT at moments, and pure shit in others. I had the "Boom Boom Bine" power going in my finest moments, and made some shit shot decisions in others. Probably had at least 50 errors. Overall, I'm all smiles.

It suprises me at how many of you play best of 5 sets.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I just started to hit the ball again after a 1/2 year hiatus (due to a nasty tendinitis), felt much better than I had expected.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Playing my first tournament in a year at a 4.0 next weekend on Green Clay. Have another 4.0 plus mixed doubles event on Red Clay the following week.

Then hope to stick to 4.5 once we get back indoors.
