Played pretty well tonight. I played on the to court with Jamesdster, Dick M and the Raucker. Dick and I lost 4-5, we were on serve in the end but time ran out so that is how it went down.
Jamesdster and I tore it up proper. We were all up in their space. They didn't know what to do, they tried I-Formation, they tried everything but we did not let them in at all. And by that I mean 9-0. Booyah! Ask Jamesdster about my motivational speeches, it is what did the trick.
The Raucker and I did pretty well. We were up a break and then they broke back at love against the Raucker. We get to 4-4 and I get to serve and this is the last game. I win I tie Jamesdster and essentially win the court because I would have won the last set.
The first point I miss the first serve and as I am tossing the ball for the second serve Jamesdster says something to Dick M, I hear it and double fault. Thanks Jamesdster. 0-15
Then Jamesdster shanks a return up the line for a winner, yeah. 0-30.
Somewhere in there Dick M hits the net on a return and we lose the point, damnit!
At 15-40 I told Jamesdster I was still going to win the game. We win the next point with a good serve and good volley. 30-40
I serve to Jamesdster and he hits a good return, I volley it back and he winds up for a super dipper forehand. Luckily he missed. 40-40.
We went back and forth a few times and then won the game on a nasty half volley cross court winner I hit. Smoooooth.
But the shot of the day. Dick M serves to the Raucker. Raucker returns it and Jamesdster poaches it and hits a nasty drop shot away from me towards the deuce side. I decided I wanted in on the action so I ran it down and hit a dropper right back and they never went for it. Most likely because no one thought I would get to it, myself included. bad news is we still lost that game... Good news is I hung in there with the big serving lefty today. Hells yeah.
