Blew my knee out today a la Mary Pierce, I almost screamed just as loud. If anyone doesn't know the pain of this injury, it's completely the most intense pain I've ever felt. Hopefully I can get back on the court..if not then I had fun and I'll always love tennis.
Ok, so I have a question about gamestyles...hopefully someone can help me out. I have pretty flat groundies but I play my best against big-hitters. I really like using the pace of their shots. Lately I have been struggling against really defensive players (pushers) that just loop the ball back, often dropping it really short, with no pace whatsoever. I feel like I have to generate all the pace myself. Often times I start these matches well but because I am going for so much I lose all my rhythm on my groundstrokes and crumble in the 2nd set. Last match I played a defensive player I decided to play more defensively myself and just try and get more margin on my shots.
What's the answer to these sorts of match-ups? It's like when I go for my shots constantly I lose rhythm and feel but when I play too defensively I end up getting run left and right. It is tough to find the perfect solution.
Success is to be measured not so much by the position one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he/she has overcome.

I was so awful on Saturday lost doubles 6-7 1-6. Singles was just embarrassing I lost 1-6 6-4 2-6 I won't the second set in Kerber mode, totally couldn't care less, I didn't move if I did I was walking to hit my shots. They guy I played was the biggest asshole as well he fist pumped and did come on after I missed a smash, and a couple of time when I hit the easiest shots into the net. And then he complained when I did a come on after serving and ace to win the second matches like that really annoy me because he was a shit player and I lost to him, he was actually useless and I was soooo rusty.
