Nothing is more motivating than losing to some guy that is 20 years older than you, can barely move and hacking at the ball
Well the good news is that I still play this guy on occasion. Last time we played 4 sets and I won all of them. He hits alot of short balls and I tore them up, which I wasn't able to do the first time we played.
