Our First USTA Doubles Tournament
This is my doubles partner Michael. He plays in my adult men's league every Thursday night. We teamed up as doubles partners for a Baton Rouge tennis tournament. The competition was fiercer than we ever faced before.
We lost on Friday to a team that should have never been playing in our division. On Saturday, we bounced back against a Father and Son team winning 6-4, 6-3. This morning, we played a very competitive duo and lost 6-0, 6-3. The score in no way represents how competitive the match actually was. Every game but two went to Deuce. We just couldn't seem to close it out.
Something I learned from this USTA tournament is that you have to play with a very high level of consistency AND put almost every shot away. If you don't hit a winner, the other side will gladly show you how it is done.
Next weekend is the New Orleans GLTA Tournament that I will be participating in. The draw will come out soon. I should be the #1 seed based on points in my division. Stay Tuned!
