I may be small, but I'm good!
This has been a great athletic week for me. Just one month ago today, I was on the ropes. I was losing to the likes of Whipping Boy, Heath and Monte. I think I was simply playing too much and trying too hard. On the eve of last weekend's FTL Tournament, I questioned my ability to even play tennis well.
Exactly seven days ago, I had eliminated the #1 seed in the tournament semi-finals. This player finished #8 in points in our GLTA division in 2007. It was quite the accomplishment! I followed that success by winning a doubles match with an 82 year old doubles partner in week one of my new league tennis season on Thursday.
Yesterday, I cut Monte down 6-3, 3-6, 7-5. From this day forward, I will no longer be his Whipping Boy! My strength is stamina and legs. Without a serve, Monte was oh so human and quite beatable. By the end of the match, he was reduced to being an old man on life support. He couldn't hang with the younger, swifter, and more nimble opponent. Tsk. Tsk.
With the Shrew going to Europe for the next two weeks, I will have plenty of opportunity to duel racquets with Monte, Whipping Boy and Heath. I will not hide my eagerness to put many more "L's" on their asses. It's payback time and I don't plan on being humble about it. :)
