    Well, I'm glad to bring such hilarity to the boards. Look at the score...not much between us. I hit many more winners, but also many more errors. She didn't. I was conciously going for more than I usually do, but I don't have the control yet.

    No, I didn't mean to be rude. Just the way you worded it.

    Shaking off the Rust

    Okay, it's finally warm enough to get out the bubble and play some singles. I played one of the guys that I usually play doubles with. Playing doubles, I felt out levels were pretty close. He has a much better backhand than I do, But I think I've got the faster serve.

    Anyway, long story short. He wipped the court with me. We played 4 sets, I lost 0-6,1-6, 1-6, and 0-6.

    Was really frustrating. I just couldn't find my angles on the singles court and I couldn't close out games. Towards the last few sets I just said forget it and really went for my serve. I would go up 40-0,but just couldn't close it out. Also, did I mention my friend is pretty quick. He got to all of my shots.

    Very frustrating, but at the same time, it's good to finally get out and hit some singles. I went down this time, but I guarrantee I'll be back.

    Played a small local tourney this past weekend. There was $1500 prize money to split between the opens. I got a bye and then played my first match against a dude that beat me the last time we played, which was about 7 years ago. I won 6-1,6-0, couple long games. Very nice to avenge the loss even though it was a long time ago. Then played dubs winning 6-0,6-2, not complicated in the slightest bit.

    Sunday morning was semis versus a high school senior that is playing D1 for UCSB next year, very good player. I didn't start off well, chose to receive and after several dueces was broken in my first service game. I only got mildly better, lost 6-1,6-3. Lots of dueces, several game points on serve, but only 1 break point early in the 2nd. And the dude hit 3 winners to break while i served to stay in the match at 3-5.

    My opponent played very well, although i know i could've played much better as my FH, which is usually my better shot but lately hasn't been clicking, was letting me down. My lack of confidence in the shot help him get much easier balls to tee off on. Serve was pretty off as well with too many 1st serves in the net.

    A little dissapointing, not so much the loss but that I could've performed significantly better. Still alive in the dubs. We started our match but then had to stop due to rain after only a game and a half. Not sure when the re-scheduled match will be, but i'm raring to go.

    wow you remember a guy that you played 7 years ago and presumably not since then?

    I recently beat a guy in a 4.5 league that beat me in my first competitive experience in tennis - club tournament 2 yrs ago. I was at best a 3.5 and he made mincemeat out of me with his net game. He spent a lot of time criticizing my game on changeovers. Since it was my first competitive experience, I just listened quietly. 2 years later I beat him easily 6-3, 6-1 but he did not remember me from before. I was very tempted to lecture him on his game, but I didn't. :D

    ^^Nice work. A lecture would've been appropriate, or at least a reminder.

    I got smoked tonight

    by some random dude that was out praticing by himself at the courts tonight. I was out there with my girlfriend, she's trying to learn so we can go out and play together, but she's a volleyball player and doesnt quite get the concept of playing the ball on a bounce and keeping a good distance from the ball, she always frames it right at the neck of the racket.

    Anyway, there was a guy on the court next to us who was just serving 3 balls then walking to the other side and serving again. I asked him if he would like to join us for a hit if he would like to practice some strokes. He was cool and came over to our court and hit with us for a while. He was good, a highschool player. My girlfriend tired out pretty quickly, her forearms were so tight they were burning. So me and the guy started hitting a bit and decided to play a set. Dude, I got smoked like a new york city crack rock. All I could do was block the ball back to him and hope it landed in. I think I only won like 4 or 5 points the entire set. And the dude I could tell was taking it easy on me too. I had the opportunity to finally hit a forehand winner only because his racket slipped out of his hand after a somewhat lazy backhand. I cranked it from just inside the base line and let out a huge hell shaking growl as I made contact as I was hoping to atleast show the guy I could really smack it when I get the chance to, but I totally mishit it, got way under it and freakin blew it about 200 feet off the court into the woods. All I could do was laugh, he laughed too, and we couldnt stop laughing even into the next few points. Anyway, it was a no win situation for me as I got obliterated 6-0. We decided a second set wasnt necessary. Fun night though.

    Starting up this thread again...

    I played my first team match yesterday. Won my 2# singles match 6-1, -6-1. I didn't really have to do much. Won my 1# doubles match 7-5,3-6,6-3. What a nice match to win. We played good, but lost that second set because of one bad game. But that happens.
    I'm really pleased that I did not lose my serve the entire day. I served really great. About 10 aces too.

    Played last Thursday at a rival club.

    Won 7-5, 6-1

    Started a little slow, then got things going. My game is based on a weak return of serve from my opponent. I like to try to get a short reply about mid-court then put it away or hit a deep heavy approach shot.

    For the record, I am a 3.5 male, captain for 2 years, 35 years old and I have lost only 2 matches in the last 3 years, playing at 1 singles and 1 doubles.

    Assie Open Type Heat

    Played my friend in a ladder match about two weeks ago. We are evenly matched, so our matches tend to be epic battles - at least in my mind. Really, we are so evenly matched that alot of out matches go to 7-5 or tie breaks. It's never easy for either of us.

    I go out to a quick start and won the first set 6-3. Joe lost set point on an ill advised drop shot.

    My friend then stormed back and won the second set 3-6.

    We made the mistake of starting around 10am, and at this point, it's creaping up on noon. It was one of the first summer weather days and it must have gotten to about 90 degrees on the court. I felt like I was frying.

    Anyway, we go into the third set. I go down 0-3, then claw back 3-3. At this point, I am running to the court side rest room every change over to fill up my water bottle and dump it over my head. I am getting low on gatorade.

    We play on and trade breaks, tied up at 4-4, tied up at 5-5. At this point, were so beat by the heat that it's hard to get the energy to hold serve. For the most part the returner has the advantage. I go down 5-6 on my serve and I am praying that this match ends soon. I am dreading a tie break in this heat.

    In the end, my buddy holds and wins 6-3, 3-6, 5-7. It was a good match, but I'll get him next time. It will be a night match.

    Played well tonight

    Played my buddy in a friendly best of 3 tonight. He beat me last time we played in two tiebreaks but for some reason tonight I was just on. Neither of us have ever had any coaching but Ive watched and studied the sport for a long time now and after a few months Im actually starting to find a decent form. Dont get me wrong, I still wouldnt consider myself as "good" but tonight something just started to click. I was hitting first serves with power and consistency, my forehands were flattening out nicely and my backhand was better than its ever been before. Im still not that great at the net, my volleys tend to go high and land deep in near the baseline. Maybe Im not dropping the racket head low enough?

    Anyway, I won the first set 6-1. It was probably the best set of tennis Ive ever played. I had some trouble closing him out in the second set though. I was up 5-0 and had him 0-30, then started making errors. I served for the match at 5-1 and he broke me after 3 match points that were all long rallies in which he won them all! He's a fast little booger and was getting to all my shots and sending back moon balls until I would go for the knockout blow and blast it off the back fence. Anyway I finally closed him out with him serving at 2-5 to take the match 6-1, 6-2.

    Score: 6-7 (3-7), 2-6, 6-7 (5-7), 4-6

    (Yes, four sets :)

    I served fantastic - was really fun. Unfortunately my opponent _returned_ incredibly well most of the time.

    Most memorable game: Me being down 0-40 on my serve when I started going really all out on my first serves - and they all went in and was real bombs. Unreturnable all of them (we got a racket on most of them but couldn't keep them in the court) so I came all the way up and snatched that game. Felt _reeeelly_ good :)

    musicalmedic, where do you live in North Carolina?

    My last match was a 6-0 "teaching match" against a sort-of student of mine. However, I watched an epic 1-setter between a friend and my youth pastor. 7-6 (7-4), but better than it sounded.

    6-1, 6-2, 6-1. against a 4.0 buddy of mine. I played really well and he had a few more unforced errors than normal. I'm working on a new strategy of using my big serve and coming in to finish the point rather than let the guy back in by just floating it back from off the court and it seems to be working though admittedly, my net game still needs a lot of work and my overheads are terrible.

    In a 1 day tourney in the third round. Was so excited after beating the #2 seed (last years finalist). But fell completely apart and lost the will to play. 3.5 singles.

    6-1, 6-3 (W)

    vs a computer rated 4.5. We started play @ 8:30a, but the court soon become an oven. He serve-and-volleyed the entire first set despite my forehand return
    being right on. My service games were okay - I was able to take advantage of short returns and not miss too much while being aggressive.

    By the end of the 2nd set, I was exhausted due to the heat. Must be those
    Corona & limes I had last night, and 2 glasses of wine. (well, this was a local ladder match, so...)

    I broke him to start the 2nd set, but at 2-0, I lost my service game after 5-6 deuces. My execuse: I was really tired, and plus there was a really hot girl teaching tennis to kids at a nearby court. I was thinking.... she could give me a lesson or two.

    At 4-3, I decided to change my clothes. Underwear and everything. (no, not in front of everyone) My current apparel is mostly Adidas Comp, but they tend to saturate (with sweat) and stick to my skin. After a complete change, I somehow got the energy to go back to the court.

    The 1st game back, I broke his serve after 3 good returns and a couple of errors on his part. 5-3. Then I served it out at love.

    Played another 4-hour match today against the same guy I played last time (we also played for 4 hours that time. Hmm and the time before that I played over 3 hours - but against another guy). I seem to like marathon matches :)

    Only 3 sets today though. But incredibly tight. 4-6, 6-7 (8-10), 6-4...

    I took the last set!!! :)

    My last match? The one where I sat on the court in the heat and humidity and the chick never bothered to show or call? I won, by default.

    Match before that 6-4 (feeling good as she was the one to beat in our division) got a reality check on 2nd set and lost 2-6. Dug my heels in and won the last set 6-4. So far undefeated this season. Feels pretty good since I lost every single match last season.

    6-3 6-3, breaked the guy almost everytime but couldnt hold my serve many times due to double faults, probably because i just came out of injury, but anyway im used to double faulting a bit

    last match

    After not losing a 3.5 usta singles match(partly because i played on a new team and didn't face many of the leagues top players) i started playing TennisDc in the competitive division After not losing there either i decided i needed some better competition. Well today i got it and took a beating 6-1, 6-0 to a guy who is probably a 4.0 or 4.5.
    If i played this guy ten times i'm sure i would lose every time but i really could have played better. In 3.5 most guys don't rip winners on me from the baseline.
    At first i was kind of frustrated and dissapointed but i'm ok now.Right now
    i'm just a 3.5 so how can i expect to beat someone a level or two above me?

    last match at a tournament was

    6-2, 4-6, 6-4

    first set was a walk in the park the only thing that saved him was his serve which was really fast and he had a killer slice serve but even then he only got two games that set.

    second set he broke me and i just lost it but calmed myself later on

    third set took a hard look at how i played in the second set and changed up my game as he began to become inpatient and started to serve and volley when his volleys were less than perfect so i pounded his volleys away which went high, slow, and easy to predict. he lost the match but dumping a volley into the net and when the ball hit the net he destroyed his flexpoint radical on the court and came up to shake my hand which kinda made me laugh

    Yesterdays tournament play:

    First round singles:
    6-2, 2-6, 6-2
    I won first set very easily. Then my game just took a break and I was down 0-5 in the second set before I got myself together again and won two more games. Third set was bascially like the first one... Really strange match.

    Generation doubles with my daughter Emma (9 yo), we met another father/daughter pair, but their daughter was 16 years:
    1-6, 2-6

    Doubles, pool, match 1:
    6-3, 6-3

    Doubles pool, match 2:
    5-7, 3-6
    We were down 2-5 in the last set with our opponents to serve and we needed 1 (one) more game to claim the title (since the guys we beat in match 1 had beaten the guys we were playing in match 2 so everyone had one match each). Somehow we managed to break them (but then we lost our next game, but at that time it didn't matter :). So we ended up on +1 in game difference, the team that came in second place got 0 and the third place team ended up at -1 - pretty tight :)

    Lost against the now top side.

    1-6, 3-6 dlbs.
    Blown away 1st set, bad DF's, we were too defensive, they just hit big serves and return winners, took control of the net. Had bp chances 2nd set, 4-3 down, but we blew it. Partner DF'ed mp.

    7-8 mx dlbs.
    I played pretty well, Under control on serve, volley ok. we couldn't break guys serve, 7-6 up, i made two easy errors. lost TB 4-7, threw in bad df and fh uf after long rally. Guy pulled out the big serve and aced me dtl on mp. :\

    Opposition grade 4 young girl, about 850 AR. Guy was probably 5-7 grade.

    That's what happens when one doesn't practice for 5-6 weeks. Oh and the poor Syn Clay doesn't help. Worse surface ever. 1st personal loss for the season. :/

    match results 1-win: 2-6 7-5 6-4
    match results 2-win: 2-6 6-3 6-2
    match results 3-win (doubles) : 0-6 7-5 6-2

    Cant remember past those 3, but I'm pretty sure I lose the first set 90% of the time, which is kinda annoying. in match 1 I played terrible and got pretty lucky, it was the first proper match I'd played for almost a year. Match 2, it felt like i was back and i was able to hit some good shots-my opponent let himself down though, he played better in the warmup.

    Today:

    Singles semi:
    7-6 (7-5), 3-6, 6-3
    Over 2 hours of hard-fought battle... A good number of blazing forehand winners and some aces (including one on the setpoint in the tiebreak).

    Singles final:
    0-6, 3-6
    I ran out of steam. My right arm felt really tired so I hit numerous double faults and spread shots all over the place.

    Anyway, all-in-all - two good tennis days (3 singles and 3 doubles matches :)
    with one 1st place (doubles) and one runner up. I'm happy! :)

    Yesterday 4-6; 4-6

    Was a horrible, horrible game. I got beaten and very badly. The score doesn't show how many lucky shots I got or how many UE's she got in a few games.

    I'm still sick about it today.

    Lost 3-6, 5-7

    Played an above-average 4.0 on the clay in a match that spanned two separate times. Had to quit at 3-6, 3-4 and was able to fight back to 5-5, then played a loose service game and it was over. He's super steady and got me with a lot of slice approaches and good volleys. Clay is frustrating! We've played 8 times and now i'm 3-5 after losing the last two.

    Non-USTA doubles event.

    1R: 6-2, 6-1
    We played the #1 seed, and it was the easiest match. I like how tournaments
    make seedings sometimes, based on cumulative pts. (even if you are .500, if you
    play enough tournaments, you may get a high seed) No need for comments on this match. One of our opponents could not return our kick serves to save his
    life.

    Semi: 6-3, 6-1
    Playing a team with a 6-1 record, (2 finals appearances @ USTA events) we
    had a little more fun.

    Final: 3-6, 6-2, 10-8
    The opposing team had a ranked singles player + older, better net player.
    we lost the 1st set quickly, mostly due to my stupidity. after my partner
    told me to slow down (strokes + serves) and concentrate on placement
    and choice of shots, 2nd set was won quickly. the 3rd set tie break was
    a close contest - it could have gone either way - but we pulled out!!

    at this point, we are 6-1 for 2007.

    I'm on a six sets losing streak.

    Night mixed comp. Played a team that was dropped from higher grade.
    They were ok. But i played shocking, I'm sick and have a bad flu.
    I've no energy and couldn't move or keep 3 shots in court.

    1-6. Mens. New partner. 1st hit in 15years? BP + GP Chances 2-1, 3-1..

    2-6. Mixed. No returns in from both players..poor set.

    5-6. Mixed. Should have won. 5-3 up + mp and i DF'd MP away. :\

    Playing again on fri, sat.

    Awww, that's life. *sniffle* *haachew*...

    Played my first singles match in about two months today. I took on one of the singles players from my spring 4.0 team: a solid player with a good all court game.

    I jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first set, then dropped 3 straight, held serve, and then dropped 3 more to lose the set 4-6. While I was losing 6 of 7 games, I was suffering from two maladies: doubles player syndrome (I have to play inside the interior sideline?), and SRD (service return disfunction).

    I finally got the court dimensions right in the internal target computer and remembered how to return serve in the second set. As a result, I turned things around nicely and won it 6-0.

    I raced out to a 3-0 lead in the third. He had a good service game to get to 3-1. I took the next 2 games to go up 5-1 and serve for the match.

    At 5-1, he played a fantastic return game, including 2 clean return of serve winners off good serves, to get to 5-2. My SRD returned in the next game, and he held to make it 5-3.

    I took a deep breath and served-and-volleyed it out at love. Final score, 4-6, 6-0, 6-3.

    Lost on fri, 6-4, 6-3 ,6-2. Pretty lackluster effort. But the 9 sets losing streak was broken sat.

    In glorious fashion.

    6-0 6-1, 8-7. :)

    2-6, 3-6 in a 3.5 NTRP semifinal. He just came out on fire and was up 4-0 before I knew what had happened. he got an early break in the second which I got back to pull to 3-3. I then failed to convert 3 game points, he broke me and cruised to the victory.

    AAAARGH! Lost mixed doubles, 4-6, 3-6. It was a bad combination of spotty play on my part, opponents on fire, and playing on clay.

    Thursday, R1 in a tournament: 3-6, 4-6
    (Served like crap, and no real energy either)

    Saturday, friendly "best-of-7-sets" game: 6-3, 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 (4 hours)
    (Yes!!! I beat my buddy, and in a major way - I haven't really won a set on him in a looong time. Perhaps this is the end of my singles slump?)

    Won a 4.0 NTRP doubles tournament. The final was a seesaw affair: 6-2, 1-6, 12-10.

    We took our previous matches in straight sets.
