Played Tennis

Good match.  I  was easily winning, but my opponent smartly switched tactics, taking pace off the ball, making the rallies much longer. I  always have trouble with that type of player. Handled it reasonably well this time. 

Hit a couple of really outstanding top-spin, sharply angled forehands (and many terrible ones).

Serve is getting better. Not much trouble getting it in the court, but can’t  control the direction.

Played Tennis

Played against George. Good match. Got behind early because I was not ready to play: legs were stiff, not running full speed.  Need to chase down balls much harder in warm-up.

Played my usual approach, just hang in until my opponent misses. Successful.  Serve was pretty bad. Got better at the end. I should practice it the day before.

Tried out Angel’s Pure Drive racquet. Super heavy, couldn’t get a lot of top-spin. Not for me. Really stable though. I can see why heavy hitting base-liners like it.
