If I make a bunch of mistakes and win, it's cause for concern.
If I play really well and lose badly, no biggee, that means the opponent just played better.

OR, you can play against BETTER players as often as possible, giving you a great chance to lose, but also a chance to improve your tennis.
I like your attitude. This is how I'm approaching my return to tennis (after almost 40 years of not playing) as a relatively old guy. I'm having a lot of fun. Not winning much, but, I think, slowly improving. Playing against better players elevates and, I think, improves all aspects of my game.
