2012 USTA Spring League V

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

Hey Tennis Friends!

Originally, my Tennis Friend, Jerry, and I had planned to play at least seven matches together. Because of our different scheduling conflicts, things did not always work out the way we had planned . . .

For this USTA Spring League season, each team must field three doubles teams and two singles teams.

Our first set lasted 33 minutes.
Our second set lasted 29 minutes.
David and I did fairly well, considering it was only the second time that we had ever played together, plus, we played in the #1 position against the top team in our area. Our match outlasted most of the other team matches that day. We finished after our team’s two singles, and one other doubles match. We were able to cheer on the last match of the day, which was a doubles match that went three sets!

In the time following this match, my regular partner, Jerry, and I had been diligently practicing together. We usually do pretty well playing social tennis and, quite frankly, were a little embarrassed about our results in USTA League play. We made an extra effort in the past few weeks to work out some new strategies. Unfortunately, our final match of the season was defaulted, as our captain could not get enough players to field a complete enough team. Not how we wanted to end our season . . .

My final results for this season are:

Local District/Area 4.0 Doubles
1-win, 4-losses
