It's even worse when you question their ridiculously shit call, and then they say "Oh, well, we can replay it if you want". Lol, no. Do not sound as if you're doing me a favour. I hit that winner, I won that point. There is no replay. That's my point. End of discussion.

Well I was stupid enough to slice a serve, and the guy stood there like an idiot and thought I was passing the ball to him. I didn't even bother explaining Even though I did the proper serve motion and stuff.

The 'If you want' makes it feel like you're taking the point from them, like they are emotionally manipulating you to say 'Nevermind it's yours' I hate that, I always piss them off and go, okay lets replay it or ok I'll take the point

Yeah, it's in most levels of competition. Scary to think that the psychological warfare can start as early as 12&U's.

Well, when I say serve motion, I mean I stood there, he waited for me to serve, I started to raise my right arm, and then quickly slice it into the box. His face trying to comprehend lol

It's even younger IMO. Some of those kids grow up in a tennis devoted household, they'll be hitting as soon as they can walk, getting lessons from a very young age. That must give you a serious tennis mindset.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I'm so happy I grew up in a household that was always fair. So happy I never grew up thinking winning was the only thing. I could not live with myself if I cheated to win. How the Hell do these people not feel guilt when they purposely do this shit to win? I'd much rather be the ultimate scrub being fair, than get higher in the ranks/farther in the tournament by being a cheater

Good on you guys

I think the worst is when it clearly hits the line, makes a mark (synthetic grass or clay) and they call it out, pretending that they didn't see it that clearly, or hope you haven't noticed. I'm pretty sure you would notice when you've hit a winner

Re: Your tennis results?!

Made it into the 2nd round of Play-Offs

Unfortunately lost 7-6(9) 6-1, but it was so hot, and I am not in shape, there was no way I was able to win. I mean, even if I won the 1st set, it was impossible. My vision was blurry, I had no energy, and the other guy was good at the getting a lot of balls back.

He served for the set at *5-2 and *5-4 and against a *6-5, but I started pushing and got it to a tiebreak Had 2 set points at 6-4, but he got a service winner, and I hit a quick UE. I had a 3rd set point too, but he served a good body serve and I snatched at it and chipped my FH wide. Eventually at 9-10 we had a rally going and I was at the net and after a few volleys/shanked smashes he lobs it to my BH and I try to hit a high volley but hit it out.

Second set he errored his way to losing the opening game so I was up a break *1-0, but I could barely move. My vision started getting real fuzzy. Kind of weird. I can't even explain it, but the lines on the court became very bright, and almost neon. As if they were 10x brighter than they really were. I couldn't even rally. It was bad. I didn't want to retire because I drove like 50 minutes to play, but I couldn't even play.

I recently did something to my back too, which IDK what, and it affected my serve. It's right under my right shoulder blade. I go into the serve motion as normal, but as soon as I toss the ball with my left hand, and reach to hit it with my right arm, it gets so tight, and hurts so bad. No idea what happened ;/

Overall great season, and looking forward to less hot weather for the Fall season

Level of our tennis on this new surface very rised up
The weather is very bad
We have 30-35 deegres and sunny about 3 weeks. And my partner can't play in the evening

Re: Your tennis results?!

Played on clay

Lost dubs 4-6, went down *2-0, returned well to get back to 2-1*, I completely fucked up a service game, HORRENDOUS SERVING, went down *3-1, returned very well while my partner was pissed, hit the guy at the net with a monster FH in the chest() and he was winded for a minute. Then recovered to go up *4-3. Broken to love again (I never won a point on serve in dubs), my toss was all over the place, couldn't even SLICE it in. at 4-4*, went up 15-40, but my partner flubbed an easy volley, I stopped returning as well, just hitting CC ones back to the server, and they won the game. at *4-5, got to 40-30 from 15-30 down, then wasted 3 or 4 gps with really bad volley or me not going for a volley and my partner not reaching it. I became the liability, and while my partner saved an mp with a running FH (I finally got a volley in on that mp) we lost a couple of points later.

Won singles 6-2. Served first, but served well to save bp and hold. Broke him easily and got broken on a few over confident shots. Broken again before getting broken from 40-15 to go 3-2*. However my returning was GOAT and I was hitting huge FH's. Broke him, then held to go up 5-2*. he was getting really frustrated and berating himself, especially after I hit a CC FH winner on defence, scrambling to the deuce corner to get the ball back after he hit a big FH. Did the same thing again in the last game and hit 2 big FH's that were on the baseline in a row forcing errors to win. My serving was pretty good today for my standards, 1st serve 8/14, 2nd serve 5/15, 3 service winners, 0 aces, and 5 doubles. Pretty happy with today, can't wait for the tourney in September.

I was sweating just sitting down

Re: Your tennis results?!

Had my first hit this morning in roughly 2 months. I needed a break for quite a while, I stopped enjoying it, actually started hating simply being on court, not to mention constantly getting berated by coaches for no apparent reason. Anyway, today went surprisingly well, I only hit groundstrokes & volleys, because I still want to build up my core strength a bit more before I start serving again. My forehand was actually surprisingly good, was generating even more power on it than I remember being able to in the past, although that might be because now I'm not constantly tired. Backhand started off as a hot mess, but steadily improved the longer I hit, to the point of being tolerable. My volleys were also the best they've been in recent memory, and that's probably because I'm no longer tired (better footwork, quicker reactions).

The main reason that I've started hitting again so soon is because I want to play a tournament in September. I nearly died of shock though, because I found an 18&U points tournament in Victoria.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Assuming I don't get badly injured, and nothing else too significant goes wrong, I'll probably play Pakenham.

Last week I won my Singles 75 06 10-5
Was a mental giant, couldn't convert until my 4th set point, idk what even happened in 2nd set

Today I won 76(5) 61
Opponent had very bad attitude, arrogant and cocky and had no respect. Every time I hit a winner he would complain, every time he hit an error he would swear. He even threw his racket to my side of the court after losing 1st he absolutely gave no fucks in 2nd. I was down 3-5 as well and he had a SP at 5-6 where my ball bounced on the net twice before going over tennis gods knew who they wanted to win.
Lost doubles 67(7) after being down 4-5 (15-40) saved probably 6 MPs to have MP for us at 6-5 and again in the TB just to lose it
