I played with a friend and out of 3 sets, only won 3 games. That's a total of 3 games out of 18. That's ****ing pathetic. He hit **** balls that landed right at the service box, sometimes behind it. I used full strokes, I used half strokes, I used volleys, everything went out. He's a very strong, built guy, but he played with the pace of 7 year old girl. My forehand strokes were sending the ball like an inch past the baseline. He kept hitting **** serves to my backhand that bounced about a foot above ground and I just couldn't do anything about it except slice, and that went into the alleys and the sky. To summarize this paragraph, the balls he hit bounced about a foot above ground and I was utterly helpless. I practice and practice and I just get NO results. I still lose. A guy at the club said my strokes looked very good, but what the **** is the point of having pretty strokes if I can't win? I just don't know what to do. I CRIED. I had tears rolling down my eyes and I was sniffling and ****. It was very embarrassing in front of my friend and all those guys. I thought, why do I even play? I won't quit, that's definite, but I sure felt like it. I just feel hopeless.
