Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

Played in a pretty strong local tournament. Won my first round 7-6 2-6 10-8 but lost second round to the No. 4 seed (LK 6) 1-6 2-6. Conditions were pretty tough, SO much rain (and I have to play with glasses), and I really dislike Head balls (albeit all players do). I had a couple chances to make it closer this morning but failed to convert. My strongest shot, the FH, really let me down though. I think it's always a problem when your strength isn't working because you rely on it so much. I felt like I didn't really test him enough, but he could have played better, too. He knew he didn't have to play his best today.
Those were my first few matches in a while though so I really hope to build on that.

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

played another Tie with my Team today

me (LK 17) played the same opponent i lost to 2 years ago 2:6 3:6
he is LK 15
and i fighted, grinded and slided on the slow court
and so he had to fight to beat me 4:6 5:7
solid performence from me imo

lost my doubles 4:6 7:5 4:10
and my team lost 2:7
but they are the favorit to win the group and get moved up to the next better league

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

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

Played my first matches for the team in this season and it was puuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure drama :

I somehow wasn't feeling really good this day, had some problem with my groin during the whole day and later on some back and knee issues had to join, but I will continue later with that.
First I had to play my singles match, I was seeded 4th, the lowest so I played the lowest seed of the other team, who had the same LK as me (23). I started the match with a hold and a break and lead *2-0 but got broken back immediatley. He wasn't playing any good, had no power at all and would play every second ball before the baseline or drop-shot it I had some problems with all the short balls and made tons of UEs as well as winners I fell behind to *2-4 0-30, but somehow got back on track, breacking for 4-4. But again my serve (had very little 1st serve % during the whole day) let me down and I got broken back because of some UEs again.
He hold and won the first set 6-4. In the 2nd. I hold my serve and broke again, after a tight game to lead 2-0 and get broken back right away like in the first as well
But from then on, I got my rhythem and never looked back till *5-1, when I had 3 SPs but made stupid UEs because I wanted to make a good first/second serve or a great winner to end the set. Got broken and at 5-2* I had at least 6 SPs but couldn't make the f***ing point, at one point I stopped counting SPs. I felt embarassed, because in meanwhile, all my team-mates won their matches with ease and I was the only one struggling out there and I really did. No 2 good points in a row. Only UEs or winner, no in between, well, I wasn't playing really good and my groin was all the time on my mind (not that it hurt much, but still...)
In the end I had to serve again at *5-3 for the set and got it together after being down 15-30.
The MTB started very well (my opponent didn't have a clue how the MTB works though ) and I lead with *5-1... we changed sides 2nd time at 6-6...no words, in the end I won the MTB 10-7, I don't even know how, I only know it was ugly, very ugly, but a win is a win.

In doubles I played with the 2nd worst player (next to me of course) so I wasn't expecting much, but I was sure, we might win this match and so we started pretty good, being up *2-1, and till the end of the set we hold this break after they came back from *4-2 to 4-4, but some nice overheads from me gave us the set with a score of 6-4.
Early in the 2nd set, my partner but especially me, were all over the court. He was serving GOAT and I made E V E R Y point on the net, either volley, smash or drop-shot, we lead *4-0 and thought it won't take long to celebrate the win and my first doubles victory but after some tight games it suddenly was *4-5!!! My partner totally choked or did whatever but he didn't play tennis anymore! He couldn't serve and make a single shot over the net. I was serving at *4-5 and had issues with the heat, my knee and back, as i played before for over 2 hours in the sun and had only a rest of 10 minutes or so...and now we played again at least 1 1/2h again...so I really was fighting with myself and I did it loud and effectiv. I saved 2 SPs, both on 2nd serve and after tight BH - FH rallies. I didn't make a single UE from there on and we finally could close it out with our 1st SP with 7-5 and win the match 6-4 7-5.

In the end, we won 6-0, but to be honest, I should have won my singles 6-2 6-3 or so and the doubles should have been a 6-4 6-1 or so...but well, a win is a win, and I scored 2 and I'm really happy about that

Re: German Amateur Tennis League and LK-Tournament Thread - Season 2013 - Vol. 1

Won 6-2 6-1 on Sunday, very comfortable win. I still haven't faced an opponent with a higher LK though. Seems I got to play some tournaments in order to improve my LK...

if i win my last single and doubles i should be just 15 points away from LK 16
so i might give it a try and play 1-2 LK events
one win there should be enough for LK 16
and Dirk would join me there for sure
