It's hard to control the scoreboard.
Getting beaten badly is just a part of tennis. Did you feel that you and your partner played well below your normal level of play? If so just chalk it up as a bad set. If not you can use it as motivation to beat them next time. Maybe the both of you can figure out another way to play them.
Heck Djokovic, Nadal, Murray and Federer all have been beaten badly at time. What should you guys be different?
