Anyway, for those keeping score, I'm 46 and a ranked 3.5 tournament player in Texas. I lost to a kid whose a Super Championship player 6-2, 6-2.
I was actually shocked I won as many games as I did. Too bad I didn't capitalize on the chances I had...
For those that wondered what we got, aside from a folder with important info on the tourney, we got a cap and a shirt with the players names on it. I was even interviewed after my match. You never know it may show up in the Playoffs show they have on Tennis Channel. Probably not but I can dream...
Oh well it was a one time opportunity I enjoyed. It was cool to be treated like I was important in the tournament...
If you get the chance, try it... Don't worry about your skill and ability, just have fun!
You got a shirt? Just finished up playing in the Eastern Playoffs, and no shirt for us! But playing at the U.S. Open site is really fun.
