We played a long first game and after going to deuce twice he broke me. His wife was really excited and positive pulling for and encouraging him. That was the last game he won and also the last time any game went to deuce. I honestly think the pressure of her watching was partially why he imploded.
my wife has never had anything to do with sports in her entire life ...
further more she has never seen me play, not once.
I once had a match against her best friend's husband. Her friend came out to watch and later asked my wife why she doesn't come out ... Her reply "I dont have time for that non-sense"
I like it better this way.
