My team coordinator put me as doubles only on Saturday I'm going to brainlessly ball bash the most epic tank I can't be bothered with doubles only I hate doubles and I'm the worst doubles players, I thought that was clear.
Darn really? I only tank doubles when I've lost in singles and got pissed off. You should try and win doubles. I'm sure you could .

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

I bet you're amazing You and your Wilson Orange Juice or whatever you use

My instructor said if we work on my serve he can try to get me on a team that is doing well (which sounds like good news for me) because this bullshit league I signed up for fills up too quickly with old people who have time for everything since they can afford to play tennis all day and nothing else

Good luck in your Irish tournaments. Say hello to Conor for me

Re: Your tennis results?!

Won 6-2 6-1 6-2 6-1 today

Started off with great stuff from fore- and backhand but got way too rusty later in the match and netted like everything Still being lucky because I won nearly every game which went to deuce.

I actually went with the Apple Juice this time.

Conor? You mean the amazing Conor Niland? Pfft. 2 golden sets are heading his way


I played my first match back in a few months today and won 6-0 6-2. Happy with the way I played but my foot and shoulder are killing me now. Only faced 1 bp through the whole match while 5-0 up first set but saved it with a forehand cross court winner (aka a dead netcord while I now realise I never apologised for )
Another match 2mro and then I'll take a hiatus for a few weeks again.

I'm glad you live so far away because if we ever played you'd double bagel me in a heartbeat in 11 minutes total. I fucking suck.

Lost today 26 46 06

He literally gifted me every single game except 1 (because I happened to find a few good serves). I think he had about 15+ double faults.

I tried ball bashing - never even got a rally started.

I tried slicing a la Niculescu - he hit a winner immediately after ever slice.

I tried pushing and no pace shots - we got a few rallies before I hit an UE and I can't push, it's annoying and unnatural.

Enjoy your tennis; I'm envious

Re: Your tennis results?!

So far I'm 2 and 0 for our USTA 3.5 Team season.

Last weekend I played in the 1st Singles slot and won 6-3 7-6(5).

Yesterday, I played the 2nd Singles slot and won 6-4 6-2.

I need to work on my confidence, the entire time in both match I had an upset stomach and this "OMG OMG I'm going to lose" feeling ... but thankfully I can let my subconscious take charge and managed not to choke.

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?!

I wondered why I couldn't serve anymore it seemed. Then I realized I was forgetting to do something very small yet crucial - I wasn't getting on my toes and stretching up for the damn thing . I only just realized that towards the end of my practice yesterday. Lo and behold, first serve started going in again .

Can't wait to show my coach how my serve has improved. I think my lessons start again this Friday but I must ring him to make sure .

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I won a practice match 6-0 7-6(11)
Was up 5-1 40-15 in the second set and proceeded to waste 9 match points before I finally closed it out in the tiebreaker. All I can say is... THANK GOD
I am such a GOAT choker.

Still riding that Ivanovic coaster

Re: Your tennis results?!

Me and my mate ended up in a tie I won the first set 7-5 he won the 2nd 6-2 and we had to leave at 2-2 deuce in the third, and I played pretty well cause he had been beating me with scores like 6-1 6-3 for like 3 months every week I haven't defeated him since december. I really don't have time at all to compete.

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend

Re: Your tennis results?!

Was down 0-6 0-4 yesterday and manage to pull out a 0-6 6-4 6-2 win. Lord knows how. At 0-4 in the second I just started going after everything in BBB mode and it payed off

Doubles was a 1-6 3-6 loss
