At that point I'd say my body/game was only around 60%... I was afraid to even run hard for fear that I would tear some muscle somewhere. It was a battle of the mind.

After the match I said to a friend, "You know, if this was just a regular day of friendly tennis, I woulda quit playing 7 or 8 hours ago."
Well....thankfully my last matches were doubles. I can do endurance doubles more than I would singles....Mentally, there is someone to almost distract you and keep you company :P
