Went OK today, spent about 6 1/2 hours on the court today. But the weather was sweet but we had no shade except one area in the far back of one side of a court where there was some tree shade.
I took my time and didn't rush anything and tried to stay as calm as humanly possible after points to conserve energy.
We won our first match 6-4, 6-3 against two high school kids. They came a long way from last year, that was good to see. We were a little sloppy but we didn't need to be on key to win.
Next match was tougher, played a 4.5 player and a very strong 4.0 player. We lost 4-6, 7-6 (4), 5-7. They broke my partner for the win, I never got broke in this match.
My mixed dubs was weird. I played the tournament director (the lady) and then a 26 (plus or minus on the age) dude who played very well! We lost the first set by a break 3-6 and then won the second set 6-3. We were down 0-1 in the third, the dude hits a serve wide to my partner and misses it wide. I saw it wide, my partner called it wide and then the tournament director went off on us saying that we had been making bad calls. I wasn't too happy with her. We gave her the point from the serve and then I was too flustered to concentrate. I got broke and they held with ease for 3-0 lead or something like that. it took me a few games to focus back in. But at that point in time he hit a forehand wide by an inch or so but I couldn't call it because I didn't want to hear her go off again. Happened twice in the third set, what a mess. They won the third set 6-1. I may not go back for that tourney next year after that...
