Time for a day of rest, from tennis that is.
I have played 6 days in a row and I am exhausted. It took a set last night to get my legs under me. I must have hit about 10 lobs that were as bad as they get just in the first set, made my opponents looks like Roddick hitting overheads. Good news is we took the last two sets so it's a win.
I am 7-0 this season in the 4.5 USTA leagues. Some tight matches, some push over matches. Never started the season so well. Played two solid 4.5 players Sunday with OSU, I think they were 5-1 this season. We smoked them 2 & 2. OSU played well and I played well too. We were focused and pumped to play them. All in all playing very well this winter. Have some foot problems that the orthodics are keeping at bay enough to play tennis so that is all that counts.
Happy turkey day!!!
Good to know that you are back on the courts in such fine shape. I actually played 5 days this last week but at nothing like that intensity
. Over the last few months, however, I've also been working on the top-spin lob which can cause much distress
when done well at the right moment.
No tennis today, though
. Everyone is otherwise occupied.
Have more or less decided not to go to Cincy next year as I may need to get some surgery done at about that time. Last year was a bit disappointing, especially the final, but I am tempted to send in the deposit, just in case things are better than expected health-wise.
