Question, is it worth the opportunity?

So, in a couple of weeks there's a tennis tournament at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, RI, and it's being played on the beautiful grass courts. It's an Open Tournament, and I know if I were to play I would get crushed. I've been playing mostly 4.0/4.5s with mixed success.

I've never played on grass before, but I think I have the game for it. I know I'm going to get killed, and I'll only be going to have a good time, and to sort of be on the grounds of such a beautiful tennis centre, and to get the opportunity to play on these expensive grass courts.

Should I do it?

You might as well. It'll be fun and you have nothing to lose.

Re: Question, is it worth the opportunity?

Yeah you should give it a try.

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.

Sure, you only live once.

Grass courts are hella hard to play on the first time, but the experience is fun too!

Re: Question, is it worth the opportunity?

yes do it
show some Nancy Caro-Löffler spirit and enter this Tournament

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
