HouTex Tennis Tournament
On the first day of the HouTex Tennis Tournament, all three of us (me, Monte, and E.Shrew) won our first round matches. Unfortunately, we were all beaten in the second round shortly after. The funny thing about tennis tournaments is that you can feel like you are on top of the world one moment, then like a BIG LOSER the next. Why we keep coming back for more is beyond me!
It was at this tournament that I rolled out a new doubles partner (Monte), whose height advantage would make up for my SHORTcomings. We played a real tough doubles team last night and consistently fed them the ball at the net. That's NOT a good thing. We got beat 6-2, 6-3. So, we tucked our tails between our legs and promised to play better in the Doubles Consolation Tournament today. To be "Consolation Queens", we will have to win three doubles matches today in pro sets and win a regular match in the finals tomorrow. Wish us luck!
