Some videos of today's match. My opponent is a 2.5 in . He won our match today. The score was 4-6 6-2 6-1. I played him twice before a few months ago, winning 6-2 6-1 and 6-1 6-4. Apparently he got a bit better and I got a bit worse. Anyway, we'll have at least one more match during this Spring 2013 Season league. If I win the next one (next Saturday), then we can play a rubber match.

His girlfriend and dog accompanied him. I think they might have been sending out some sort of mind-disrupting subliminal signals at me. I remember wanting a cigarette after the first set. I guess that's not so unusual since I've smoked about a pack and a half a day for over 50 years, but I never bring the cigs to the tennis court and I don't remember ever wanting to smoke while playing tennis before today. Maybe I should cut down?

Here's the vids, presented for your amusement, criticism ... whatever. Oh, by the way, the video perspective is a bit lower as I'm no longer using the bag on the fence method (makes it look too hazy, imo), but have returned, hopefully temporarily, to the taping it to the garbage can container method. I really must get a tripod. Also by the way, the best way to view these videos is in full screen mode with the sound fairly loud. It's like you're right there, seated by the back fence.
