Just got thru playing with an older gentleman who served mostly to the forehand side, but with speeds well below what I'd consider "60mph", meaning a full on sitter serve. No variety of spin, speed, or placement. He held a couple of times, despite his serve. 3 sets. He also complained I didn't help him during his service games by poaching (I tried on about 50%, but the returns were just over the net and hit hard, something I don't relish poaching on). He also complained I didn't cover my overheads, which I didn't due to his weak serve, and the ball landing within 4' of our baseline. I'm no track star, and within 5 years of him. The opponent's were one guy recently promoted to 4.0, and the other a steady tournament 3.5. My partner would be mostly an erratic slow moving 3.5 with me a much more erratic, equally slowmoving maybe 4.2 compared to the opposition. We split the first 2, then lost in the tiebreaker in the 3rd. I thought we did fine, considering the opposition was tournament tested level, and taking the sets serriously. As usual, I didn't need to take this seriously, until my partner lamented on my lack of poaching and putaway overheads. By then, it was too late. Yes, they picked on him every chance they got. Yes, I could have done more by poaching more and slamming away every overhead. No, I didn't have the physical ability to put away overheads that land that close to the baseline, or to put away poaches that were thigh high and moving decently fast (from forehand returns) I'll probably forget this one next week, but my partner swore he'd never try to play with me again. That would be OK, but I play about once every 3 weeks, so it's hard to pass on playing partners.
