7-9 loss in doubles, but 7-6 (1) 6-1 win in singles
Doubles was whatever. My partner girl couldn't get a return over the net. After a while I didn't even care - I could only marvel how many easy returns one can hit in the net
. Then again, my serve was crap today (doubles and singles) so I'm not totally blameless either.
One of the opponents really annoyed me, starting in doubles. She took fucking forever to go fetch a ball. I feel like I could've walked to the clubhouse for a cup of coffee, come back and she still would've been dawdling over to the ball. It was especially annoying when I was serving of course.
In interclub you play one of the doubles opponents each in singles, and I got the slowpoke of course. Then in singles things got even worse. She made so many dodgy calls, but I don't even know if she was doing it on purpose. She just had no clue how the game goes. She got to 6-5 and thought the set was over
, we had a small argument about it and she had to go ask someone
, and most weirdly she stood at the service line to receive first and second serves, and didn't move back at all even when she discovered I have a bit of pace on my serve and was getting aced time and again...
On set point first set I hit another ace (not a great accomplishment today) and she said it was out. I was like "no, that was not out I'm sorry", rather frustrated. It was just an unpleasant day all-around.
The first set was so close (I was down 2-5 I think) because I had trouble adjusting to the weirdness of her game. The only thing I can take from this win (although it is nice to win finally) is that I used my brain today and made necessary adjustments.
My favourite moment was on a BP at some stage (can't remember when) I smacked a FH return winner out of frustration and it felt great
