2013 USTA Mixed League II

Sunday, August 18th, 2013

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s back to my “time shifted” coverage of my favorite USTA League play: The mixed doubles season! For this match, my partner, Kelly, could not make it. Since we are playing as a team, we were both taken off of the schedule for this particular date. Unfortunately, another member of our team got injured in the warm-up, so, I was called in, at the last minute, to fill in for this evening match . . .

Our first set lasted 34 minutes.
Our second set lasted 21 minutes.

USTA League rules in “Friend at Court” state that if one player or team is more than 15 minutes late: the penalty is a default”
Fortunately, I was able to rush down to the courts and make it to the match on time!

My results for this season, so far, are:

Local District/Area 4.0 Doubles
1-win, 1-loss

2012 USTA Mixed League VI

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

Hey Tennis Friends!

Once again, I am teamed up with my Tennis Friend, Ashley, for an 7.0 Mixed Doubles USTA League match. We are on a a “combo” team. Since Ashley is a 3.0 player, and I am a 4.0 player, our “combined” ratings total 7.0, which enables us to play together.

Our first set lasted 37 minutes.
Our second set lasted 47 minutes.
I don’t not have an accurate time for our third set.

This was our second and, curiously, final match for the 7.0 Mixed Doubles team. The lack of scheduling us, by our captain, puzzled us.
For our first match together, yes, we lost, but it was not a blow-out. We played in the number one slot and went three sets. That’s a respectable effort. However, we were not scheduled to play again, until the second-to-last match of the season (this report). We also played the number one slot, went three sets, and this time, we won!

My results for this season, so far, are:

Local District/Area 8.0 Mixed Doubles
1-win, 4-losses

Local District/Area 7.0 Mixed Doubles
1-win, 1-loss

2012 USTA Mixed League II

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

Hey Tennis Friends!

It’s USTA League Mixed Doubles season, and this year I am playing on two teams. One team is an 8.0 league team, and the other is a 7.0 league team. Since I am still a 4.0 rated player, I will be playing with a 3.0 partner for the 7.0 league team. On the 8.0 team, I will be playing with either a 4.0, or a 3.5 player.

This particular day, I was scheduled to play on both teams: One in the morning, and one in the afternoon. It was double duty for mixed doubles!

For my first match (8.0 Mixed) of the day:
Our first set lasted 26 minutes.
Our second set lasted 19 minutes.

For my second match (7.0 Mixed) of the day:
Our first set lasted 28 minutes.
Our second set had a rain delay, so accurate timing was unavailable.
Our third set lasted 17 minutes.

My results for this season, so far, are:

Local District/Area 8.0 Mixed Doubles
0-wins, 2-losses

Local District/Area 7.0 Mixed Doubles
0-wins, 1-loss
