Now the epic doubles match
This tie was so crazy and I was just constantly refreshing the livescores every few seconds for like 8 hours throughout the day. I have no life
After Maria and Despina took the first set 6-3, I thought we had it and was already thinking about staying in G1 and who should get nominated next year. Little did I know...
We lost the second set quite comfortably, 6-2
. Then the third set was EPIC!!! We immediately broke for a 1-0 lead and I was all excited. Then we just kept losing game after game and then it was 1-4 and then I got really nervous and then it was 1-5. I'm so weird
. I have these weird superstitions sometimes during matches
. I was following today's scores on my iPad and I had the screen the vertical way for Agnis match and then after she lost I switched it to horizontal to see if maybe it would bring luck and it did
. I honestly didn't expect us to win the doubles and at 1-5 I just kept refreshing every 5 seconds and after every point I would do my cross to pray that we would win the next one. I'm not joking. EVERY SINGLE POINT for the rest of the match. I missed one though because I went to the bathroom during a changeover and when I came back it had already resumed
. We somehow just kept saving match points. We didn't save them in every game from then on, but in total we saved at least 5 match points until Luxembourg won. I lost count but there were some really long games and intense praying from me
. I don't even know why I wasted my whole day with this. I'm the only one on the planet who actually cares about Fed Cup
. We somehow made it 5-5 with out teenage doubles duo and then it was 5-6. I don't know why but I felt that even from 1-5 that we would come back and I just kept praying
. See everyone, convert to Orthodox Christianity and good things will happen when your raves are losing
. Then we went to a TB and I was just so proud of them and I was predicting a 7-4 win in the TB from us, not sure why...
Then it wasn't going so well as it was 2-4 but then we leveled it at 4-4 and then it was 4-5 and then the rest was just a mess. 5-5 and then 5-6 IIRC and then 6-6, etc. Luxembourg kept having match points and we kept saving them, it was AMAZING
. Then we were up 8-7. It would've been amazing to win. I will never forget this match for the rest of my life. I thought I was going to have a heart attack : o. Well, Luxembourg won 10-8 in the end. I wanted to cry but I wasnt that upset because I didn't expect a win anyways
. I can only imagine how the girls were feeling after the match
