well, im back home in the snow after a week of sun in turkey.
ive played quite a number of ITF tournaments but the quality of play
was nothing compared to what i saw here in Manavgat. there were simply no
bad players around(except maybe me)
my first round opponent was from turkey and beat me easily 1-0 while i tried to get a feel for the claycourts. he was too good, having played at challenger level in the 90s.
seriously, it took me the whole week to get used to playing outdoors on soft clay in windy conditions.
luckily my partner and i won our first round in the mixed against a russian pair before losing to two brazilians.
the whole experience was amazing and im looking forward to 2014 in Florida.
ill try and post some videos over the next few days.
check out the ITF Seniors facebook site for excellent pics.

next for me will probably be Umag, Croatia, in May.
