Re: Your tennis results?!
Lost 7-6(3) 6-0 against my friend. I was 5-3 40-15 up how did that happen?
But anyway sometimes I get amazingly frustrated with myself and that didn't happen today, we played really well in the first set (made a lot of winners from both sides) and had a lot of fun, sometimes I lose 6-3 6-2 and I play like crap and have a horrible time, so I'm glad that didn't happen today. The thing was that we had to change from indoors to outdoors at 6-5* (him serving) in the 1st set and the indoors court is carpet and it's freaking wonderful and the outdoors court sucks and I rely much more on precission and shot-making than he does.
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.
