I just got called to sub, I have to play Jeffro tonight.  I already talked to him, we both feel like schiznit today, I am sure this will be some entertaining tennis.   I edged past him last time I played him in this league, but I think he is playing better lately.  With what I have seen him do lately to his opponent's, he has me nervous.  I think I am screwed.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

He moved fine.  I just woke up from my 3rd nap today, I am exhausted.  Making me run tonight would be a good thing.

Well, I am not sure what to say about the tennis we both produced out there today.  We were both completely exhausted.  Jeffro worked all weekend and got tennis in, I just played too much tennis or something, I am wondering if I am sick, but I do not think so.  My body is drained.

We tied 8-8 and left it at that.  My serve was the only thing that saved me.  He broke strings in both of his NCodes and had to use an old racquet.  Funny thing was he didn't break my serve until he switched racquets.

My first serves were landing well in the first half and I just couldn't muster up enough out of my legs to keep that going, he made me pay for it.  I had a hard time keeping my balance and getting low because my legs feel like jelly, I thought I was going to fall over a couple of times just trying to stop.

It was ugly all over.  There were a few points that we both just kinda walked and hit the ball, and then there were some we gave a good run at each other.  I am glad to be home and within 20' of the bed, because that is where I am headed soon.  3 naps and I am still tired.

Jeffro said I looked pale.  Who knows.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Jamesdster won, don't know his score.  I gotta get those NCodes restrung before this weekend.  Its been a while since I broke 2 strings in 1 hour.

I defeated the Andre Agassi clone Jason 6-4.  The serve was cooking tonight.  In an all too frequent occurrence, I broke early then relied on the serve to hold every time.  I gotta quit doing that.  I double faulted twice in my 1st 2.5 games, but none after that.

Nice win Jamesdster!  I had the worst headache yesterday.  I blammed it on a lack of my morning ritual of caffine but I am not so sure now.  The last 3 days were rough.  I am happy to have a few days off from the court.  And I barely ever say that!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Oh yes, caffeine.  It gets me up in the morning and gets my day started.  If I miss the morning coffee I am in for a rough day at work.

I tell ya what Scott, there are some bad germs going arond.  I felt like hell again today and took a sick day.  I have been battling something and it sounds like you have the same thing.

Whatever I had I feel much better today.  I didn't need 3 naps to get by.  Usually when I am sick I have the energy of a normal person and can play tennis if it is not a highly competitive match.  My legs usually ache when I am sick too.  But yesterday was weird, I just had no energy, but I felt fine minus the headache.  But u better bet your last dollar I had a pop for breakfast for my "get up and go".

And what am I doing up this late?  My daughter just woke us all up having night terrors.  She cried for 5 minutes and we really couldn't do anything.  We had her sit on my wife's lap.  Then our daughter pissed on my wife, whew, at least one of us can laugh about it.  lol  (I hope she doesn't read this message)

Back to bed for me...
Good Luck on the Court!!!
