I feel it...
Eyes closed...
Body relaxed...
Senses heightened...
Take in the idling silence of the crowd...
Can feel the weight of the air on my brow as opponent tosses the ball up...
It's thick with moisture and the smell of dirt, sweat and competition...
Hear the swoosh of his racquet through the air, the thwack sound of impact...
Heart calm, can feel the ball travel across the net...
Body moving into position...
Limbs loose, but movement coordinated, weight falling into the court...
Ball Bounces!
Eyes Open! Wide-Squint-focused!
Body Coiled!! Expression grimaced!!!
Swooooosh!!! .... Thwuwapoookk!!! Winner down the line!!





Credits roll across the screen, i put down the controller, turn the PS3 off and head to the courts to practice...
