good luck! I want uranium to win the tourny.
The players are lying. They know exactly where everyone is and who is in their path.

I'll let Uranium post first about his match today before I pass comments.

Re: In The Zone and Uranium Storm Hempstead! Tournament begins tomorrow.

I won 6-7(7) 6-3 7-5
I was down 5-3 in first, came back to 6-5 then lost 7-6, I just came out there a bit too nervous and lost a tight tiebreak where I led 4-1 and then was down 6-4, I had no set points
I won the second, and then went down 2 breaks in the third at 4-1 and then was down 5-3 (got one break back), and then won the last 4 games. My opponent's level dropped a bit, some may say choked, but I fought hard and earned my win despite hitting damn near 100 errors My backhand saved me as my first serve and forehand were nonexistent today I did get a lot of second serve practice which was good
I would make Vee so proud

Re: In The Zone and Uranium Storm Hempstead! Tournament begins tomorrow.

It was like watching Venus in a third round at Roland Garros. Worst match I've ever seen him play. There were no serve issues, not sure what he is talking about. Maybe he means the fact that he became a wimp and decided not to hit it anymore, then yeah. That's a serving issue. He charged the net every other point as if he were Navratilova. On the worst approach shots, too, so he either got passed or had to hit an impossible volley.

OH WELL, a win is a win I guess. Moving on! My 2R is tomorrow.

It sounds like you know what you did wrong, which puts you ahead of 95 percent of the other players at this level (including, unfortunately, myself). I'm sure you'll clean it up next round.

Losing a tie break from 4-1 I never would have recovered from that, so well done

Good luck in your next matches!

Re: In The Zone and Uranium Storm Hempstead! Tournament begins tomorrow.

I won 75 62.

Served TONS better and played the big points well. Now I play the guy who beat Casey last year.

We shall see! No dates yet, they said they'd call to schedule for next week. We're both in the Round of 16 now.

Don't let me down.

No. It's a tournament for people who live relatively near Hempstead/in New York.
