What a Loser!
I walked onto the courts feeling pretty confident. I had sized up my opponent and incorrectly judged him to be an older version of me. We were the same height, muscular, and both very manly.
My strategy was to play very aggressively, hit hard, and attack the net at times when it was smart to do so. Unfortunately, the older me played the exact same way.
The big flaw in my game was that I kept hitting right to my opponent (as if he were a magnent). I tried to go down the line a few times, but quit after losing confidence.
So, I lost in the Flex League Playoffs 7-5, 6-2. I am just one big loser. This does NOT bode well for the upcoming Texas Open XXX in Dallas in 2 1/2 weeks. Arrgggh!
