Played USTA tonight with VIC on court #1. We played a guy we lost to in 3 sets last time and someone I do not think I have played before. One guy is incredibly steady and hits a sweet lower stabbing volley, he is very tough. The other guy was younger and had a huge serve.
We lost the first set by a break 3-6. We jumped ahead 5-0 in the second set and dropped 3 games in a row, almost 4 games, had they not missed by an inch we would have been back on serve. I served it out 6-3.
We started out the third set with a break point at 3-3 in the game and I got aced... It started going down hill from there and we were behind 0-4. We get a break, hold, break, hold and get to 4-4. We get to 5-5 and break and then served it out. It was a nice win. Last time I played this guy the third set went too quick and they won it 6-1. I was thinking we had a similar fate there for a while...
Good stuff in the end, glad we got our act together.
