Fickle Pickle’s trickle to #1

#59
Lost both matches last week. Tuesday night ended with a 2 & 2 loss. I think it was closer than score given the combination of the amount of game points I had on serve and my dismal conversion rate. My biggest takeaway from the match was my 2nd serve or lack there of. Stunk worse than stale dogshit left out in the sun.

Thursday night was an utter demolition, 0 & 1, and can be accurately summed up by the following:



As suspected, quality of league play is at least 1 to 2 levels higher than the tournament circuit.

I thought of this video in my match today. My opponent kept giving me loopy BS and the high takeback became a game changer. I went from spraying balls 10 feet long to crushing them into the corners.

So thanks.

Glad to be of service! Didn't do me much good last night but hopefully, I don't have to play many more guys coming off the tour for a while.

This thread is awesome haha. Could you post a link to whatever 4.5 ranking you're basing it off of?

Congrats on your tournament wins!

Also, you were saying you plan to only stay at 4.5 for one year. Is the appeal process easy in your area?

Latest and gre...err, mediocrest progress. Still working on taking the racquet back earlier and now finishing on to a balanced left leg otherwise I pull off to the left and it all goes to ****.
Where were these big FH during the Jolly wooden racket match? :)

USTA season has ended. Will you be rejoining the tournament circuit in 2018 to complete the trifecta?

You probably need a break but that still leaves you 4 months if you take the rest of August off.
