Hey all. Here to vent, realize I may get crucified in the feedback. Posted earlier in the year about my frustration with pushers - got some great feedback, because honestly, I didn't know how to play them. Since that time, it's been one pusher after another in the league and I've lost my will to live, let alone play. I understand that I have to deal with the fact that the ball comes back over the net - but you should see some of the junk grips and techniques and hail-mary lunges that gets the ball back. Part of what I find so frustrating is that my technique-aware mind analyzes the discombobulated tennis dysfunction on the other side of the net and concludes that the ball SHOULDN'T come back over the net, and if it does, it shouldn't land in the court. Today, I tossed a match for the first time - I just didn't feel like playing that style one more time. That was a bizarre thing to experience in myself, for sure! Then, after the loss, I asked the guy if we could play a set really hitting out. He said sure - and you should have seen the errors! Right now I think I have a choice to make. I need to choose if I want to win, or improve in my tennis technique. I've been choosing the latter, but am bothered that I'm losing. I comfort myself by saying, "I'll beat them eventually with better technique and with more experience playing them" - problem is, I hate the thought that it may never happen. And now I'm whining on a global board. Oi vey. What has become of me? I'd love some comfort, but I'll take my lashings, too. Thanks, y'all.
