Level 3 tournaments are not any ordinary tournaments that anyone can play. This is the higher than average players. This is where there are only good players. The ranking you posses must be high enough in order to get in. I haven't got in a single level 3 tournament this year now until June 2.

It was somewhere in Alpharreta in this very, very rich neighborhood. I had played level 3's the previous year but I had never won a match. This place was filled brand new million dollar houses. They had clay, hard, and hard indoor courts. The day I played my first round It was sunny, no clouds and really windy. I was hoping to play indoors but I had to wait forever to get on a court. My oppenent was this guy from chile and I saw him all the time at other tournaments. He was pretty good. He had a good serve and net game. The begining of the match was pretty even. My 1st serve was on 100% the first 3 games. I was bombing all of them. It was tied up until 4-4. Thats when I started finding my rhythm  and he couldn't handle it. I had to hit more backhands than I normally do, and my backhand sucks. Our rallies were forhand smash to forhand smash then to sprinting side to side getting drop shots, the first set was really exciting and intense. I won 7-5. The second set he was still running pretty good and moving, but that was when I started to hit more winners and got more pumped. He made more mistakes, and I was just putting the ball corner to corner, angle to angle. My serve was just staying on top.  I won the second set 6-2. I was so happy to win a Level 3 main draw for once, but most of all it was a good day for my serve and backhand.

I have been playing a lot of tournaments. I have been meaning to blog about the three tournaments I have won this Summer. I have played some high ranked players as well.

How's the summer tourney season going, hope you are still playing well. One of my students just got back from Zonal's and had a great time, and like you he took down some good players, one a top 100 in the country 14 player. So cool when a plan comes together.

Thank you it feels good to do so. What is your player's name?

Nice breakthrough, good to push through to the next level of tournaments and players to beat. One on my students has done that this year and now is closing in on top 10 in NorCal.
