I think I'll make a tennis injuries thread sometime.
I suggest resting a little bit. If you have to play though, use ketoprofen gel and orally ketoprofen or diclofenac.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Thanks everyone,

^ I took the day off tennis, though I probably wouldn't have played anyway, and tried to relax and sit straight. Used Nurofen, which is like Ketoprofen gel, and had some ibuprofen. So unintentionally followed your advice, thanks!

It's better, the strain is only the right side of my middle back, hopefully it completely or nearly goes by Saturday, as I could have 3 matches then.

BH's are such a mystery
Oh that's cool. I'm a member of my local tennis club, but it's tiny...tennis is not really a popular sport here.

Yeah same, mine can work well down the line and cross-court but then it randomly goes off and I hit so, so many errors with it...it's definitely my footwork on that side which is the problem. Sometimes I wish I could just hit 2 forehands.

I've literally never seen a tournament so busy ever. 650 entries apparently, couldn't find a spec of space.

Also, did you know Rod and Jenny are leaving in 5 days!

Happy to report a win for my first match, 6-2 6-2. I wasn't an idiot for once

Re: Your tennis results?!

I'm going to try and not type novels and bore everyone to death this season, but I have to for this first match, it was kind of crazy The rest will be much shorter.

Won my first match of the new season 26 75 75.

Positives: Saved 2 match points! Good to get a win in a higher level division (this is 3.5, when I spent last 2 season in 3.0). It was cloudy and sunny mixed, so not deathly hot the whole time The guy I played had no weapons at all, except good movement.

Negatives: I get too angry at stuff. I need to just focus and realize it's for fun, and I spent 2.5 hours playing tennis. That's a good thing, no matter the out come of the match.

Set 1: Went up 2-0*, then lost 6 in a row to go down 2-6 Mix of my errors, with his lob/moonball shots and his speed were the death of me. So many missed routine balls. He targeted my BH to his credit, but I wasn't applying any pressure. His game was awful to play against. He didn't even topspin moonball his shots. Just wrist flick shots that had an average net clearance of like 20 feet

Set 2: Went up 2-0* again, before I found myself down 2-4*. Broke back for *3-4, but then he broke again and was up 62 53 40-15. We had a long rally on one of the MPs (can't remember which though). Like 20+ shots, then I hit an inside out BH winner, that caught the outside of the line Probably the most clutch shot I've ever hit in my life. After I saved those and broke back, I got to 5-5 and by then he was missing like crazy, and I finished the set 7-5.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Set 3: I thought I started off with a break for *1-0. As a matter of fact, I know I did. I was up 15-30 on his serve, he got to 40-30, then he DF'ed twice, and then I hit a nice CC FH winner to win the game (I know I remember because I hit like 7 winners the entire match lol) but as I started walking to change courts he said "No, it's deuce." I said "But, you were up 40-30, then DF'ed twi-" then he interrupted and said "NO, it's DEUCE". I didn't want to argue with the guy, I'm not very assertive anyway, and it was only the first game, so I let it slide.

Naturally he wins the game and breaks me for 0-2* But I get it back to 2-2 before he goes to 2-4*. I get an easy break and fight like crazy savings BPs to get to 4-4. I fight like crazy AGAIN to get the break *5-4. Go up 40-30, and HIT MY FIRST AND ONLY DOUBLE FAULT OF THE MATCH I was so mad at myself. Then I tense up, and he started going for his shots more, and breaks for 5-5. He thought it was a tiebreak, and I had to tell him no it wasn't a tiebreak yet Luckily for me he DFs down 15-40 on his serve and then I serve for it again. I get 2 return errors from him (he probably only missed maybe 5-7 returns the entire match), and routine UE after a short rally to get 40-0, 3 MPs. I serve, he returns middle of the court, I hit a BH drop shot (one of the WORST shots in my arsenal, and it happens to be pretty good, and he gets to it on his FH side, tries to flick it cross court, but it hits the net, all while I was standing in no-man's land )

One of the hardest matches I played due to his speed, and his lob/moonball game. He hit his FH less moonball-esque but every other part of his game was rough. Every ball was shoulder height at it's lowest point basically. I had to moonball my BH 9/10 shots, then throw in a powder puff DTL to throw him off guard. I went home and promptly collapsed on the couch after the match.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Got bagelled yesterday when using my new racket for the first time. Probably a mixture of nerves and a sore ankle contributed to it. I double faulted a lot and dumped a lot of shots to the net. Plus being fat doesn't help movement wise and the guy moved me about the court well. He is part of the lessons I attend and he is older than me and probably more experienced than me.

In the second set I had break points on his first service game but could not take them. However i served better in the next service game and held to 15, so avoided a double bagel. The then holds to 40 but then we have to stop our match.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I'll be entering the Nepean and Parramatta AMT 18/u events in December and I was wondering if there are any strange/stupid rules in the TA rule book? Also, how long do we get between sets and do we get a break every 2 games?

Also, are any of you going to these 2 AMTs? (AMT and 18/u)

Re: Your tennis results?!

It happened

60 06 60

22 DFs 18 Aces

This was some of the most uo and down tennis i have ever played. My opponent would hit Topspin moonball, and then a flat forehand down the line winner, and then i would play a Wozniacki Forehand moonball and a massive CC backhand. My movement going forward remained shiteous throughout the match, but running side to side was peak woz

In the end i had a good giggle
