Played the number 1 seed this morning. Turns out he was 15 rather than 14. My game plan revolved around making him play at 9:30 on a Saturday morning, in the hope I'd catch him napping. When he turned up 10 minutes early, the match was pretty much lost. The conclusion is that I am nowhere near the level of a decent junior, and that I may as well just accept that I'm becoming a fat old man.
Still in the doubles. Things look mildly brighter there, as our next opponents are only the number 2 seeds.
