    Played a local tourney and lost an over-35s 6-2 6-4. Would love to make excuses but on the day my opponent played better than me.

    Back to the drawing board. Boo.

    6-3 6-2 in a local 4.5 singles league.

    I haven't played competitive singles since sophomore year in college (4 years or so), and this is the first time I really felt comfortable after two disappointing outings this summer. I kept my serve in, double faulting perhaps once per game, but more importantly hitting 1-3 service wins/aces each game as well. My opponent was a solid player, he played for a D1 school whenever he went (seemed low 30's, high 20's), but was a bit rusty. He had a bit of a week serve, which was lucky for him, as my returns typically reflect the ability of the serve (up to a certain point). I was a bit out of breath at times, but there was only one point where I noticed it compromise the point. I had a great time, my opponent was strong enough to make the points entertaining, and was a very nice fellow (I really hate people who get all stand-offish when they're losing).

    Won my first set at 4.5 in a friendly We only had time for one but got it 6-4 (that one set took 1.25 hours) and nearly all the rallies took a very long time (for both of us you have to hit the winner since we'll chase down nearly everything). One of the more enjoyable sets. I might even play up a little next year of the 4.5 team needs some fill-ins.
