Okay, so I played horribly today and it was all my fault. I have tennis class after around lunch time and so when I was in it, I completely forgot that I had tryouts after school so I was going all out. Little did I realize how exhausted I would be from just warming up.
Even though I played badly, I was still able to win my first match 8-5. I'm still pissed though b/c this guy should not have gotten games off me. I was just not in the match at all. I started out solid w/ the early break to be up 1-0, but then next thing I knew, he was serving at 4-1. And that's when I said to myself "Andrew, what the hell are you doing?" And then I got up to 7-4 and then kina choked after having tripple match point on his serve. But then I finally closed it out 8-5
In the second match, I was up against a more challenging opponent. In all honesty, I could have beating him easily had I not been exhausted, but I was too tired to really move... I was hitting so many unforced errors; especially off the backhand which is usually my trusty shot. The games were really close though even though it appeared that I got owned. I served very well, but I just can't seem to ever close out the big points. Like, I would fight my way from 0-40 to Ad-in.. but then double-fault the game away.
Anyways, I'm not going to play tomorrow b/c I need to recover (my legs are like throbbing now), but on thursday (WHICH IS MY BIRTHDAY EVERYONE!!!) I'll be back with a vengance. mark my words...
