I posted a thread last week about a "men's" doubles league I was entering. Well, it turned out that it was a mixed doubles league and having never met anyone there before all I can say is...some of these women were pretty good-looking. One of my first matches that night was against a couple, and the lady (she was blonde and VERY ATTRACTIVE) was eyeing me practically the whole match. I don't know if it was a strategic thing-(I don't think it was cos she was staring at me from the lounge too afterwards!!!-what can I say) But staying on topic, during the match everytime I set up for an easy shot, I would whale one to the other end of the indoor wall or sail one wide. Talk about distraction. The funny thing on my serve once when I was receiving an extra ball from my partner, the same woman nailed me in the eye from a feed I didn't expect. And I was pretty sure the guy she was with was her boyfriend/husband-or at least I think he was.(They left together that evening.) Has anyone experience similar distractions? I guess my point is in mixed doubles there are so many times I want to just crush an easy ball over the net but sometimes I think I let up b/c I worry I may hurt the female at net if she can't react in time to get out of the way. (I'll have to follow up on her the next week and see what her story is with that other guy and if I was INDEED eye candy to her.
