That's a good question. The first set was close, but after that I just fell apart. All I can remember is being frustrated when the ball hit the pipe and bounced 10 feet up in the air one way or another. (Or right back at you as fast as it went) There was no give at all. God forbid you accidentally ran into the net or hit your racket with it.
It was my own fault for being the lowest ranked and least experienced team member. It was my first singles match of the season as I had challenged to play up just before the tournament started. Everyone else played on normal courts, as did the winners in my bracket once there were less players and more regular courts available.
Or maybe it was the windů or the sun in my eyes. Or my shoes weren't tied right. It certainly couldn't have been me.
