You Are Probably Sandbagging

 

If you are eating chicken wings with your non-racket hand during league match play and beating your opponent, you are probably a sandbagger.…

Tennis League Season 2 Wrap-Up

Yes, it has been a long time since I posted. My second league season ended in a bit of a whimper, with a loss. Of course, I was coming off of a couple of weeks of not playing at all which didn't make matters any better. As always, I did a bit better in the second set than the first, and I managed to make one interesting volley. There really wasn't that much in terms of highlights from that game.



My overall ranking at the end of this season was #5 out of 8 players, which is pretty… Continue

Last League Match Tomorrow

Well folks, tomorrow is my last league match, and I am definitely out of shape. I missed the last two matches, one planned for my honeymoon (which was amazing!) and one because I caught a stomach flu. When my hubby and I returned this weekend, we played twice, once with the ball machine, and once just with each other. After two weeks of no play, I was sorely off my game, and I still haven't practiced serving. So tomorrow will definitely be a challenge. So for anyone who has been following my… Continue

Tennis League Season 2, Match 4

My match this past Tuesday evening gave me a little insight into how Federer must have felt playing Djokovic in Miami. Blustery conditions do not make for good tennis, and my opponent definitely had better control of the ball in the wind than I did. I don't think I've double faulted as many times in a league match, even in my first season, and my backhand went long 9 out of 10 times. The final score was 1-6, 3-6.



The best part of the match was the entertainment value when the tennis… Continue

Tennis League Season 2, Match 2

This season is definitely starting off on a roll. Last night, I won my second match at 6-2, 6-0. I still missed a lot more than I should have with unforced errors, but I got it under control a lot sooner this time than last. And only two double faults, which is a miracle in itself, considering I just changed my grip on my serve this past weekend. Now I'm serving with the appropriate grip, doing a bit more pronation, and hitting the ball above my head instead of low and out in front of me. All… Continue

Tennis League Season 2, Match 1

Last night was the first match of my second league. I came off to a great start, winning 6-4, 6-0.



The simplest analysis of the match was that in the first set, unforced errors were killing me - especially on the shots that I had the most time to prepare for. It's like the longer I think about it, the better the chance I'm going to overkill it, or plot it right into the net. During the second set, I toned it down more, and my shots became more planned and consistent, which made a big… Continue
