This needs to be in Adult League & Tournaments....

...but thanks to The Ripper for the bump and Go State! to the OP.

Answer, though....

Playing time: ~2 hr 45 min. It was my very first USTA season and we (ladies) still played out the third set. Even though it was doubles, conditions were brutal. High temps and humidity...and classic 3.0 pusher play: lotta lobs and "keep the ball in play" action.

But I swear, the 7-5, 6-4 W in singles I had earlier in that season was THE most exhausting thing I've ever done outside of childbirth.

But scorewise: 21-19 in a first set TB. The second set had a game go to 10+ deuces that we ultimate won for a break to win 7-6, 6-3. To this day, it's one of my more meaningful matches: my long-time mentor was team captain and watching "us"...and it meant a well-deserved team victory.
