I'm playing every Saturday now, this is my first season of club tennis. I have 4-2 record overall - 2-1 in both singles and doubles.
Yesterday I lost doubles but won my singles 7-5 6-2. I was up 5-2 first set, and after a very long game serving for it I lost it and went off for a bit. Finally got it together
I didn't really get nervous but as a longtime TFer I call it a 'choke'
. Makes me realize that if you're not careful a lead can disappear even if you're not nervous.
My serve was a mess in the doubles match but it got better, particularly after the first set of my singles. If I can serve like I mostly did set 2 I don't think I'd get embarrassed very often
. I'd practiced it hard and it paid off. Last week I lost my singles 6-1 6-1 but I had like a million break points
