bout two weeks ago at my club i met with with some guy who came here on vacation from singapore ranked #1 over there and we played together he was 13 had lots of fun raised my game against him was punished for shots without depth it felt really good to hit with someone better then me we played a one seter and he beat me 6-3 i played pretty well but had problems with my return, used big swings on forehand size need to shorten up forehand return backhand return is looking really good.

I played great i started off slow as usual down 2-0 in the first set but came roaring back to win the set 6-2 i had 5 unforced errors in the first 2 games and obviously lost but after i felt comfortable and my first serve was hitting it's mark i got in a groove and must of hit 5 unforced errors the rest of the set with about 13 winners so i was consistent.We began the second set and i continued my dominance winning the first 3 games with no unforced errors but lost the next game ...at that point he needed to go home so we called it quits overall  im pleased very pleased.

Well what a match it began with the temp at around 32 and it just went up i started out alright he held in the first game as did i and it really started to get heated as the rally's were long as we both applied topspin it stayed tight but i broke hit at 33 and held to go up  5 3 in the set
he held his next serve and at that point we started disliking eachother i held aswell on a great down the line winner at love and went up 6  4 pro 8 set.... he held his serve at 15 and i held at 30 at 7 5 i began to get nervous and had two match points but failed to convert on one it hit the tape and stayed down right when i was about to end it......WHY>
it then went  to tiebreak where at 2 2 i hit a winner cross court it was an awesome shot everyone applauded but he reversed the call alter to out i got so pissed it didnt make sense everyone saw it in after that i blew up and ended losing 7 5

Glad to hear you are playing both doubles and singles.  Playing both can help your overall game a ton.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I second that! There's like no time to recover... no time for real strategy... you just gotta pound that hell out of the ball and get an early lead... I hate it too.
Be the change that you seek.
