--- Quote from: "wilsonboy" ---Okay, so today was just a horrible doubles experience. My partner lost us the match. IN the first set, we were down 0-5 on set point and I was able to return winner after winner to give us that break. My service game after that was amazing and we were at 2-5 on the verge of a strong comeback. My partner gave away set point. ANyways, in the second, we jumped out to a 4-0 lead! but then, guess what... my partner started hitting retarded shots and we ended up losing the match w/ 4-6 in the second. I was so mad.

Anyways, today we went up against Delenad high school (tennisstar's high school) but my coach, for some reason, decided to put our #7 player at #1, suspended our #1 player, and made people ranked lower than me play while I sat out. We all hate him. He isn't even a coach. We're all trying to get him fired so that we don't have him next week. It was so gay! We could have won the matchup if the bastard would have stuck to the main seeds, but nooooo.... I'm so mad.

But, I still got to hit one-on-one with the #1 guy and that really gave me an idea of how well I'd do against top players. I noticed a few things about my game. one thing is that I tend to bring my racquet back too late on my forehand and that was the main reason why it was retarded for all these weeks... and also why my backhand was soo much better than it...

I had a feeling that was the case having just seen that you changed what defeat you hate the most :) At least it appers it was your partner and not yourself playing bad. Just concentrate on the singles and then you can only blame yourself.

When you hit with the better players they tend to bring out some of the bad points in your game, like bringing the racquet back a little late.  When I hit with big hitters it is key for me to bring the racquet back very early.

he's more of a technical player though. I'm the power hitter of the team. ;-()

wilsonboy:
I had another f**king bulls**t day of doubles tennis again. My partner sucks! If I had a decent partner, I would have won they wouldn't have gotten a game off of me. We lost 7-8(5). It was so gay. We were up a break and of course my partner couldn't hold serve to save his life. My serve was really on today though. I think that I might have double faulted just once maybe. I swear I friggin hate doubles....
