Well today was a weird day. It was the first really beautiful day of the year though, so that was exciting. I think it got up to 57. I am going to be looking back at this entry in the summer and wondering to myself how the hell I got through weather this cold. Needless to say I am a very summer-time kinda guy.
We played Pitt-Greensburg today. It was a good day for tennis, but I must admit…these guys were really bad. I mean HORRIBLE. I played No. 3 doubles first with Chris. We beat them 8-1. How we lost a game is beyond me. These guys hardly knew how to hit the ball. They were really nice guys and kept the match entertaining though, so it wasn’t that bad. Then, I played one of those same guys at No.5 singles. Of course, I can’t get my errors down regardless of who I am playing. However I still managed to beat him 6-2, 6-2. It was my first singles win of the season but it wasn’t a contest at all.
Tomorrow we play Penn State Altoona. I played No.6 singles when we played these guys before. I lost the match 6-4, 6-2…but was playing well. It’s those damn errors that are keeping me from winning. When I am not hitting errors, I am hitting REALLY well. I just can’t seem to string together enough points in a row to win these damn games. It’s coming along though. I am doing some new stuff with both my forehand and my backhand…and it’s working. So, we’ll see how that goes tomorrow when they are down here on our home turf.
Venus and Serena played each other today in the quarterfinals of the Nasdaq-100 Open in Miami. Venus won 6-1, 7-6(8). I didn’t think she was going to win, but she was amazing today. If she plays like she did tonight against Maria on Thursday, she should definitely win.
Anyway, odds are if you are reading this you really don’t care about tennis. So, I will shut up. I am going to bed now that it’s 3:30AM and I am done studying for my tests.
