Post-Thanksgiving tennis outdoors to help work off the turkey; social mixed doubles
Temperature low 40s
, wind 20-25 mph, leaves still blowing everwhere. Low sun, unobstructed by leafy trees in the south.
It wasn't the best tennis
. We were all rugged up with multiple layers
, which certainly upset my timing, not to mention the wind and not being able to see the ball at times
. The game progressed regularly to 8-8 with the server facing the sun always losing, and the server with back to the sun always winning when finally we scored a break and won the set at 10-8.
It was good to be out, however,
and way better than last year when, as I recall, snow was the problem.
Now looking forward to the afternoon semi from London (sensibly indoors).
