Ok so I played a match today and I was unbelievably fatigued. I played Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning and evening, Thursday morning and evening and This morning. Thursday evening I could feel the fatigue coming on so I planned to get a lot of rest in the evening. Unfortunately I had some family issues come up in the evening and had to stay up too late and didn't get enough rest. So not only am I playing a match with not enough gas in the tank but I've got a weight on my shoulders about my family problem. I tried to shake it but wasn't happening. I started out strong early in the first set hitting a number of aces and winning a lot of points on my first and second serve. Towards the end of the first set however, the fatigue kicks in BIG time. It's so bad I can't even hide it. I started walking slower in between points and bouncing the ball longer before I serve. My opponent of course was moving at lightning pace during his service games so no breather there. I lost the first set by a break. 2nd set was even worse. I was nauseous and got broken early and broken again. I've never been so happy to get off the court. So do any of you guys have any tricks that you use to give you more time to get a breather in between points? I say tricks because obviously taking your time can irritate your opponent.
