It started out with like 32 players in the main draw. I lost my first match to a really talented guy, who ended up losing to the eventual champion. But I got to join the consolation draw and beat everyone in that to win that draw. Won the final 6-3 6-2 in my best playing in awhile (Masha-style (fake!)). Anyway I just thought it was funny, playing against a bunch of international gay tennis players (though most were Canadian, don't think people travel too much for these things unless they're really talented). But yeah!
I want to play more gay tournaments. It was a lot of older men, but they were definitely talented players. I got a medal that looks like a silver? But is obviously for consolation. Met some really nice guys too.

You should all play Outgames or Gay Games or whatever the hell those things are, I feel like theres so many different ones. Next one is in Antwerp 2013. There were sadly only like 10 women competing though? Where are all our lesbs??
Well done I would like to play the Out Games someday before I get too long in the tooth
