Played league doubles this morning. It was great. I felt all the nervous that matches can bring into my body. I had the desire to make all first returns winner. Hitting the net and placing the ball wide. I needed a few games to relax then my serve and returns were much better. I must remember to forget I am nervous in my next match. I cannot focus on it. I will have much greater success I am through this faze. I understand a little bit of nerves are important to have otherwise you know that the match does not mean anything to you. But I guess the key for me is to do what Brad Gilbert taught me. To stay back (in efforts) and not push myself to hard in the beginning of the match.
I watched the ball well today.
Met some nice people. Thank you for the opportunity to play with you guys. 1.5 hrs 2596
