Played one of the the same guys today (go figure) and it was bad. We played on clay which is not my favorite surface. I was encouraged though knowing I have played well on the clay earlier this summer a few times. But today was bad. The clay was super dry, I had a hard time getting my footing, and oh yeah, I missed all of my shots. My partner did too. We got cooked 1-6, 2-6. They played OK, just hit the ball in and waited for the error. it is tough for me to play against their type of game when I cannot push off with my feet quickly.
The good news is I was not too worried about this match. As bad as I played I did not get mad. I wasn't thrilled either though. But usually when I display such crapola tennis I am mad. The bad news is I did not talk to my partner much and try to pump us up. I was really just happy to see the court today though. This was not a USTA match, just an open league in the summer for players who get kicked out of the 4.0. So you can really draw some tough players, like Jeffro's opponent today.
Tuesday is our big match. We are in first place and if we win 3 (or more) of 4 courts we will go to Districts for the first time at 4.5. We we tie 2-2 then the 2nd place team still has a shot to tie us and then it comes down to sets lost and for some reason I thought our captain said they can beat us in that department. We will see. My goal is to just lay smack down. it will have to be a super positive day. I am pumped for it, bring it on yos!
