2010 USTA Mixed Doubles IX

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

Hey Tennis Friends!

Sometimes foreshadowing is a good thing, . . . sometimes, not so much . . .

In hindsight, I cannot believe that in the pre-match interview I asked Inger if she ” . . . hadn’t broken any bones, or anything . . .” and if she was totally healthy and ready for our match!

The video of the play where Inger got injured was pretty uneventful, so I didn’t bother to show it. The score was tied at 4-4, and I was serving 40-15. During the point, she had strained and sprained her back going for her shot. Unfortunately we lost that point. Afterward we chose to retire from the match, rather than risk any permanent injury.
As I told my partner, right then on the court, her health and well being is more important that a league match!

My results this season, so far:

Local District/Area 8.0 Team
(with partner rated 4.0, or less) 1-3
Local District/Area 7.0 Team
(with partner rated 3.0) 2-0
Adjacent District/Area 8.0 Team
(with partner rated 4.0) 1-3

I’ll see you next time, with more tennis, . . . outside the lines!
