Last night was the first time I've played a 5.0 doubles team. My partner and I have both have busy summer schedules and right now are just trying to get a rhythm together playing against different dub teams. Looking at me you would think I would be great at net. I can at least say I'm getting alot better playing more doubles and working on net drills, but its still the weakest part of my game by far. But for some reason last night, everything was working! I was able to get all but two returns right at the feet of the server trying to rush net and my partner is excellent at putting volley's away for being a high 4.0. But then I started feeling something off on my last service game. I still held after 5 deuces and won the match 6-3 6-1, but I looked and the reason my serves were off is because I cracked my stick! I'm trying to remember when it could have happened, but I do know my pride was at the fore of my thoughts (when they found out we were 4.0 I overheard one of them say they weren't going to even try) and put all my power into every shot and serve, so I don't know when it happened. And now....my baby is broken! But I think it was worth it at the end of the day :) Any similar experiences??
