I had the pleasure, no, the honor, no, the spendor to once again play with the Notorius VIC tonight. We had to face off against OSU Buckeye and another of our league mates. We lost the first set 4-6. There were a lot of breaks in the first set. I think we broke twice and got broken 3 times. Pretty bad. There were some good points and some bad. But still a fun set.
We took charge in the second set and broke while up 5-2 to seal the set 6-2. We did not get broken in the second set. OSU Buckeye served a ball, comes to the net, punches the volley deep to my backhand. I hit a pretty good dipper cross court with a top spin backhand. OSU lunges for the ball and hits a dropper (or as he says "da droppa"). This bastard (yeah, I said it) hits the drop shot and then he had the nerve to hit it with enough backspin that it bounces back over the net onto his side. As soon as I hit the shot and saw him down low I thought he might hit the dropper so I rushed in. Needless to say I was nowhere near it, ever.
We then stayed on serve until 4-4. We had OSU at 0-40 on his serve but he pulled through and held serve to go to 4-4. I was down 15-40 in my service game and dug out of that hole and we were up 5-4. We broke for the match, 6-4. VIC was hitting some pretty sweet returns.
I am pretty tired, I am hoping to bail on tomorrow's tennis and rest.
