Last week I played my very first tennis league match. I have been playing once a week for about a year. This summer I took a leap and joined a 3.0 league. Our team plays two singles and three doubles matches each week. Best of three sets. Last week I played singles.
I had a bad start and found myself down 0-3. I even served first so she broke me twice. Crap!! After settling down I made my triumphant comeback and won the first set 6-4. ("Ok, I can do this.") The second set went much better and I won 6-3 (should have been 6-2). My opponent was good - quick, hit to my backhand a lot and she did have one great lob that hit the back line when I went to the net. I hope to minimize my errors this week and concentrate on not double-faulting as much also. For my height, I would like to have a better serve overall and am working on that also.
The team went 3-2 for the night. Last week we swept but I was unable to play.
