Played a weird match last night. It was VIC and I vs. OSU and MC. They came out ablazin'. MC was just smacking back our serves like it was his job. He abused us raw with that return and OSU was doing his thing not missing any either. I got broke to start, they held and we got broke. Down 2 breaks and no one has even broken a sweat yet. Of course part of the reason was that it was freeeeeeeeeeeezing in the club last night. I hate it when it is that cold in there.
So OSU goes to serve and we get a break back. 1 break seems better than 2 for sure! So I hold and then we break MC which is rare. We all hold to a tb where VIC and I take it 7-4 or so?
It was a really weird set. I played kinda bad. Missed too many volleys, felt out of place all night, even warm up was pretty rough, but that was me. VIC was smacking ball all night. He was hitting some serious pace out there. Even his framed balls were dropping in for winners.
Second set is where it got ugly. We go up 1-0 with a break to start and MC was winding down. It was cold and the points were pretty short so I stiffened up. Up 3-2 and serving I was done. I just powder puffed serves in to get through, got broke and then we each held for 4-4 and time was up.
Weird night, basically just left it unfinished. As bad as I was playing and as cold as it was in the club I was more than happy to get the racquet in the bag and search for warmer ground.
