Ladder match. 31 days since I last played. Work work and work. If I wasn’t working I was in pain. Did not work out for four weeks.
QE ladder match tonight. Louis was my opponent. My friend and hitting partner was now my nemesis. I am guessing by now I have played a dozen times in the last ten months. The ten minute warm up did not fair well. I could only go into the match knowing my body would do what it has to. I was getting one in three into the court. My serves were about 80%. Game play started. I was soon down 0-2.
Hard work took it to 3-2 From there is was a battle. Faulting on the wrong points. A battle to the end. 7-5 Many deuces. Many aces on my part. At the start of the eight game my body started doing what it was supposed to. Shots and serves I was proud of.
