Back In

The tennis season is upon me. I have played one USTA match so far and lost at line 1 singles. (6-3, 7-5) I didn't feel to bad about it because the girl I played was better than me and at least I was able to keep it close. I play another match this Saturday, again singles (rats!) I am a much better doubles player but I am a team player and said I would play wherever they need me. Wish me luck.

My PTL team has played 2 matches so far and I played one of them. My wonderful partner and I won 6-1, 5-7, 6-4. After the first set I thought we would run away with the match but our opponents were too strong for that. I lost to one of the ladies in a match last year, so I knew how good she was. We were so happy to get the "W", which put our team in the lead for the win.

Mt Lebanon Team Tennis is almost over. My team made the play-offs by the skin of our teeth. We play on Monday and then if we win we play on Thursday. My partner prefers the same side of the court as me and graciously let me play where I like. We won 3 times and lost twice, so I feel like we did pretty well.

Life is pretty crazy right now with end-of-the-school-year activities, my 2 jobs and tennis. I just have been taking it one day at a time and trying to not let too many things fall through the cracks. Why do there always seem to be cracks?
