Re: Your tennis results?!

I played a marathon match yesterday as well It was AMAZING! We had the longest rallies and we wouldn't give up! It lasted well over 2 hours and everyone was watching us. I had a game on my serve that went to Deuce 13 ! I finally won that game and then she held her serve. I ended up losing the match 5-7, 4-6 with just a little too many UE's and inconsistent serve. We smiled and praised each other as we shook hands so I'm not upset for losing to her

TOday I had my 3.5 match. The girl I played was 10 min late so according to the rules I was 2 games up and won the toss. After we warmed up I knew it would be a pretty tough match because she hit the ball very flat - though even in the warm up I could tell she was nervous. I played Caroline style, putting more topspin on the ball and kept her moving and pulled the trigger at the right times. I won the first set 6-1. Then I just kept it up and won the second in no time 6-0. So it was nice to win a match easy like this after a marathon yesterday, haha!

Re: Your tennis results?!

I won my Singles 6-3 6-1 & lost the Doubles 2-6 1-0 ret.
I played horrible in both match though. The only good point I played was MP in Singles. Solid serve and crosscourt FH to finish the match.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I had my first-round (of 32) match in an NTRP tournament (4.0) and lost 6-3, 7-5 to a kid half my age. I was up 4-2 and serving in the second set, but couldn't hold. I was two points away at 5-4 on my opponent's serve, but couldn't get it done. Balls that would be winners against guys my age were being run down. At least I have the consolation draw tomorrow.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Today I won a very tough match against my friend Mike, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-4.

I had a 5-2 lead in the first set then just kinda choked away the lead, then I had a 5-0 lead in the TB and while, I went into Safina mode, self destructed and lost the TB 5-7 and even double faulted on SP. After that I was screaming and cussing at myself and hitting myself in the legs with my racquet. In the second set I started to change up the pace and came into net more and it was a winning combination as I took a 5-2 lead in the third set and choked a bit but finally managed somehow to finish off the match. Only 14 double faults today though!

Congratulations. 14 double-faults is NOTHING.

I've never played a tie-break, usually at 5-5 or 5-6 or whatever, I choke and DF the set away.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I just lost a three-set, three-hour barroom brawl disguised as a tennis match: 4-6, 6-4, 6-7(3). I can honestly say it was the most fun I ever had losing.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I'm playing only my 2nd tournament ever this coming weekend and trying not to get too nervous. I've only been playing tennis reasonably seriously for the past 3 years and am 33 years old. I love it though (I grew up as a good squash player).

So yeah, I'm still improving but will be a lot older than most other guys playing the tournament. I'm entered in the graded singles (a bit more club/social level) and the open level (more competitive) and hoping I can play well and not embarrass myself. It's to gauge my level. I live in a small town and I'm about the best in town but don't know how I'll go playing guys from other places. I could do okay, or I could get thrashed. Either, I'll try and have fun! Wish me luck!

EDIT: Ok, I got the draw and mine are pretty good... not playing any seeded players in R1 so hopefully I'll at least have close matches and hopefully a win or two!

LOL
I think my worst is like 17 in a 2 set match
And my second serve is the biggest push

I played in 16's event at a tournament and won for the first time!

It was a round robin and there were 2 withdrawals so i had a good chance, only had to win 2 matches

1st match: Won 8-7(12)
The guy had a good serve which was really pissing me off coz i couldnt return, I saved 5mp in the TB and won on my 3rd after like 2 hours

2nd match: Won 8-6
Played a guy who had beaten me twice before, he was so annoying he even did some underarm serves randomly

But yay i won 45 bucks so im happy
