The Season Has Arrived!!
Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that this sunday is my first official match of the season. I am really amped. Got some playing time in tonight with like doubles partner and it looks like i'll be playing doubles for this match instead of singles (we have so many good singles hitters that I decided to take a back seat for some matches). I will still be hitting singles in the tournaments I enter
Wish me luck!

Thanks for the wishes!

Why thank ya sir. I feel pretty good about it overall. I wish I had dropped a little more fat before the start to get a half second faster across court..but i feel good either way.

Well first match didn't go the way I had hoped. I found out last minute that my doubles partner wouldn't be able to make it so they called up a sub to take his place. I had never played with this sub before and sadly...he hadn't picked up a tennis racquet in a month. It's really a shame because I played well today. Good placement and pace on my serves, forehand was dynamite as always, and my footwork was great (especially since I only slept 3 hours).
We lose our first match 6-2,6-2. I am looking forward to our next match when I play with MY dubs partner. Look for the results on June 1st.

Yah well we played a bunch of pushers which is basically just a person who is like a human trampoline. They just send the ball back and don't put any shots away.
My Team , was trying to be heroic on too many shots and sent them into the net and the back wall and everywhere else in the country, haha.
Next match will be victory . Ps - My yankees suck just as bad as your mariners.

Wow...I haven't updated this at all. I dearly apologize!
Been very busy with getting some personal training certifications and playing a lot of tennis...so that's nice . I have been playing doubles for most of the season and my partner and I....well...we don't get along, haha. I would consider the team season at a loss. The good news being....I have some tournaments coming up!!!
On August 15th I take to the Clay in the Pocono's Open Clay Championships! I am not terribly familiar with clay but I see it as a good opportunity to get to a tournament I didn't expect to play in, and meet some new hitting partners
On August 25th I take to the Grass at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island for the National Open Division Grass Championships. Last year I made the 3rd round of this tournament before being taken out by the eventual 2nd place finisher...so let's see if I can bring in any better results this year! Last year was also my first time ever stepping foot on a grass court
I have an earlier august tournament on my maybe list....as well as 2 hard court tournaments for september that i'm waiting to hear more information about! A few new racquets in mail as we speak...and a much better shot now than a few months back. Feeling good...and looking better. Still have a ways to go with my training to be where I want to be at...but I feel good on court!
Looking to be down another 10lbs. by the August 15th tournament. That's about 5 weeks away...so I know it's attainable. Time to kick it into overdrive baby!!!

Wow thats quite a few tournaments coming up! It sucks that you don't like your partner, that makes it rough.
