Re: Your tennis results?!

The last match i won was 6-2 6-2.

My serve actually bails me out of a lot of desperate scenarios now. Scenarios that my crappy backhand, footwork, and general technique can't be bothered to save me from

Re: Your tennis results?!

I am competing in a NTRP 4.0 tournament this weekend, which will be my first tournament in over a year. I'm hoping to take it slow, and play well and hope for the best.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I won my first match of the Ultimate Tennis Fall season (4.0), 6-1, 6-4. I got a high percentage of first serves in, I kept the unforced errors to a minimum, and VOILA! A straight-sets victory. Funny how that works, isn't it?

Absolutely I had been double bageled three times before this, so it was time for me to double bagel

Re: Your tennis results?!

Yes!! Yes!! At last!! At last I came back in a match, I'm the ultimate choker and this happening to me is just amazing!! I led in the first set by 5-0 15-30, ok he wins the game nothing wrong, just serve it out now, mmm broken at love, ok his serve is not good I'll break him now, horrible game from me, 5-3, damn serve it out NOW!! ok broken at 30-40, then 5-4 he's serving, wake the f*ck up!!! 15-40 ok ok, miss the superpower return, 30-40 hmmm let's push he's also nervous, I won the set!!! then in the 2nd I was playing horrible coz after being so tight in the 1st set I relaxed, down 2-4, then I tell myself this hasn't ended yet! this has just started, I get 4-4 and I break him for a 5-4 lead with Serena Williams spirit, I think I made a winner return out of 3 of his 5 serves, then 5-4 serving for the match, getting tight again, 0-40, I don't even know how I came back but I got to deuce, then advantage him, I got to the net with no common sense, he tries the passing shot on the backhand side but I catch it with 2 hands and make a drop volley, deuce, big serve, advantage me, then some pushing he finally fails and OMG I won!!!!!!! The first unchoke I've ever commited!!

Re: Your tennis results?!

I just finished winning a 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 marathon against a kid who had to be 20 years my junior.

First set: I just plain got smoked. I could tell during the warmup that my opponent had no backhand at all, but I never got a chance to hit him one. I was getting around late on his first serve, and my feet were stuck to the court.

Second set: Streaky, streaky, streaky. I won the first two games (hold, break), then he won the next two games (break, hold), then I won the next two games, then he won the next two games, then I won the next two games to close out the set. My footwork was MUCH better and I started to find his backhand.

Third set: I started hold-break-hold to go up 3-0, then held serve the rest of the way. Only one of his service games didn't go to deuce. I put a lot of pressure on him, and it paid off.

I don't know about anyone else here, but it takes me a LONG time to decompress after a match, especially when I win. It also takes a while for my 45-year-old body to recover after a tough three-setter. It was worth every ache and pain, though.
