Thanks for offering your analysis.
I'm like you in that I enjoy winning immensely more than losing, but always like to have a competitive match. I've been fortunate to be in a ladder where there are easily a dozen guys that are in my range of skill/fitness where we can and have gone three sets. I'm not discouraged if I play well and lose, but my recent doubts came to the forefront after not playing very well in my 7.5 combo matches versus opponents I likely will face in the 4.0 league next season.
