Because things have been queued up for so long, as I type this it's already old news! It finally happened, I got my first league-play tennis win! I remember after winning the first set 6-3 thinking how happy I was, and that winning a set would've been good enough for me. I distinctly remember walking over to get ready to serve and thinking about you guys and the blog and how I was going to get to post I finally won a set. I didn't think I'd win the match.
The second set was awful and I got trounced 1-6, it looks like they didn't cotton too well to their first-set loss! So that set us up for a tiebreaker, which by the way in tennis is a very convoluted affair. It was a very close one and I squeaked by ten points to my opponent's eight. I recall after scoring the match-winning point not realizing the match was over, or that I had just won on top of that. Overall I was happy, at least now I won't have a win-less season, right?
As for the match the following week...well, let's just say it was another loss and my win streak didn't last very long, if at all! I queued this up to coincide with another match I'll be playing soon. My future match is at 5:00pm, so when this posts I'll be half an hour into it, and hopefully I'll have more good news to report on next time around.
