    My partner from last year's fall/winter league decided not to play this upcoming season so I'm left choosing partners from two players that I don't feel match up well with my game. I spoke with the captain about this (one of my choices, BTW), and she suggested that she and I be partners because she won't be playing too much so I'll play mostly with subs. A weird situation, I'll admit.

    Now - our sub list is probably as strong, if not stronger than the main roster! And I've played with all of them. I've considered - maybe it's an opportunity to play with different partners who play different styles, see how much I can win with each type of player, and so develop my game that way. Otherwise I would just have to say, put me on the sub list and assign somebody else to be "The Floater".

    Wait - so you're a girl? For some reason I assumed you were a guy. Oh well.

    My point of view would be more experience is better than less experience, so if being the floater gives you more playing time then go for it.

    Well I'm not sure whether to take this comment as a compliment or a diss - I do play tennis sort of "like a guy" I think, according to what I have observed. It's mostly an attitude thing. I am a good sport, but not averse to shooting directly at a net player just to keep them honest. I don't worry too much about my opponent's "feelings" in my quest to win. I also like playing with men, they talk less and hit harder. Off the court I am a girl, no excuses.

    if you don't mind it you should be the floater. you'll get more doubles experience playing with different people. maybe your style might blend really well with one of them and you'll make a very strong doubles team. the fact your a girl plays no part in it.
