lopsa def. Sher@z 6/2 1/6 7/5
Well, there is always the first match of the season. It's unusual to be at the level where one wants to be when it's the first match, and I wasn't even close to that level. I had a good first set, then he started to play very aggressively and I had no length or power in my shots so I was just running around trying to catch as many balls as I could. As the score shows, that didn't work
Third set was very close, he broke first but I broke back immediately and then I broke to serve for the match at 4-3*, but I couldn't serve it out. I managed to break him at 6-5* to win this match. A very difficult match and it could have gone his way too but I managed to find some depth in my shots in the last moments of the third set so I survived. He played very well and I know he will climb the rankings this season. Good game and good luck!
About the update and new settings, I'm not a fan at this point. My game is based on aggresiveness and controlling the points by taking the ball early, and this update wouldn't let me execute either. I hit every ball I tried to take early either short so he could attack or out of the court. I also had no speed in my shots, I guess my fastest winner was 138km/h when last season they were shooting at around 150km/h. My winner/ue ratio is also very different, usually I have about 10 winners more than my opponent and my amount of ue's were pretty low. Now they are about even, and Shere@z had much more winners than I did. I was a pusher in this match, which I hate. I hope I can find some way to play the same way I played last season and become even better and get to the top 10 or higher. Cheers.
