My 2012 is finished. I played 61 matches (7.5 combo, 4.0 ladies, 8.0 and 7.5 mixed). I won 26 matches for a win percentage of 42%. Not great, but not horrible for my first year as a 4.0. Best of all, I have some shiny new tricks in my bag that are helping my cause. I started 2012 as a lobber. It worked like a charm at 3.5, but it wasn't enough to win at 4.0. So I have added FH and BH slice to my repertoire. I can now hit short slices, emergency slices, and slices because I am losing and don't know what else to do. I am also coming to net more and better, and my overheads have improved. The goal for 2013: Crack the 50% mark for win percentage, improve my fitness, and come to net calmly and relentlessly. But enough about me. How was your 2012?? Did you meet any goals, learn any new tricks?
