I wasn't sure what to do with that one. I think I felt that I didn't have time to take it on the rise, so I just shuffled back. Actually, it wasn't that shot, but the one after it that lost me that point. I hit a dinky soft blooper right to him while he's at the next, and he hits a drop volley. I should have just lobbed him again, or just stroked a nice passing shot to one side or the other ... but no, I hit a blooper right to him. Another example of the extreme laziness both mental and physical that characterizes my current playing. Yes, there's actually a few players who I should be able to beat just by hitting to their backhands. I was really lethargic during that match. I expect to win against that guy next time we play. We had several games that went multiple deuces. I remember one that had to be a couple of dozen deuces. Your typical 3.0 comedy of errors. Thanks for comments and suggestions corbind. I've got a match tomorrow against a 3.5 lady. Will post video. Actually, she's got pretty good strokes and is the sort of player, unlike the guy from the last match, who should be able to pass me a lot. We'll see. She's 30 years old, very fit, played some organized tennis in the Middle East somewhere, and beat me 10-3 in our only previous match.
