OMG! I swear I friggin hate tennis so much. I'm playing like crap and it's pissin me off so much. gosh!!



It takes a lot of time to get good unless you have some serious coaching!   Give it time and you will love it!  I am obsessed......of course I have been playing for like 13-14 years.


I mean, I'm obsessed w/ it, but I just hate the ups and downs of the game.



Yeah, they can be a b!tch!  Over time you can make the downs happen less and the ups happen more!   I always point to the fundamentals as the most important things to work on to improve.....eyes on the ball (like Fed), good footwork, and good full swings....not too hard but make sure to follow through.

It's funny b/c it's like I would have these short moments in the match when I'm playing unbelievably... and then it just vanishes as quick as it came. I think I know what I need to fix. I just hope I remember it when I play next week. I'm so excited!

Write it down!  I have never written anything down but there have been nights where I wanted to for future times.  I should start writing some things down.

Day 1 of Tryouts
« Reply #144 on: January 30, 2007, 08:39:49 PM »
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...

SO I'm sittin here in ISS (In-School Suspension) and I just thought I'd update u on why there haven't been any updates. I'm temporarily suspended from the team until further notice. Long-story-short, I forged the documents that would allow me to play on the team b/c I didn't have my forms signed and stuff yet. So I'm really depressed and stuff now b/c I have never made a decision so dumb in my life. ANyways, I'm still alive and that counts as something :)

The good news is that you are not banned from tennis.  There is always tennis elsewhere.  If I was close to you we could go hit right now.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Is you ISS anything like "The Breakfast Club?"  If so cool!!  Find yourself Molly Ringwald and have fun! :uh:

He was asking if your ISS (in-school-suspension) was like the one in the movie "The Breakfast Club".  It is an 80's movie where Molly Ringwald was the main actress.  I guess this was before your time.

So I played today... (first time since last friday). I was hitting okay I think. I'm in the process of changing my forhand to get a little bit more spin and it's going well so far. I just need to get used to it a little bit more. My fitness is still weak however. I mean, I look really fit... and I don't feel UN-fit. But then I notice that I'm sweating like crazy after just warming up while everybody else is like really dry.

But I split sets today 6-7(2), 7-6(6)....

I played yesterday and I played very well in the first half of the match. My forehand was kicking butt. my backhand was consistent. My volleys were amazing! And I ended up at 4-1... but then, due to my lack of fitness, I got winded, and suddenly my serves went awry, my forehand started to have a crush on the net, and my backhand failed me.

But I feel that if I grunted, I might have been able to keep up the pace (lol). I just forgot to grunt!!!haha, but I hope to redeem myself today. ;)
