Singles last night was VERY disappointing. I played the human rain delay "The Rocker (CR) and won 5-3 but I didn't win as much as he lost. I didn't do anything particulary well. I am quite depressed. You gotta love these time limit leagues . The last 2 weeks I've lost 3-3 and won 5-3...almost not worth even going.
You guys will appreciate the first experience I had with the Rocker. Way back in 2000 (I think!), when I was still playing in Cincy, our USTA team went to playoffs, and faced the Scarborough team. The other courts had tied 2-2, leaving Rocker playing against the youngest guy on our team (who was probably 28 at the time). Of course everyone was watching from above. And watching, and watching, and watching.....as the Rocker slow-played to death. Not that I blame him - our guy was much more athletic and in great shape, and the Rocker was giving up at least 10 years to boot. But the suspense was just eating us. And to his credit, Rocker played a great match - our guy won in 3 close sets, but he really earned them. I'm pretty sure that match took close to 3.5 hrs.
