Look lets face it, I obviously lost to a much better player today. I think the key difference was that, in amidst a horrendous 300 ms ping of lag, he was able to impressively anticipate my shots while my anticipation was left at a struggle throughout the entire course of the match. Despite a pretty bleak looking score, there are plenty of positives to take out -- I managed to pull off some pretty good shots during break points which gave me some confidence, and was in quite a handful of pretty exciting rallies -- but from those, we definitely saw who was the better man in those big points. But of course, it's hard not to say I played poorly but realistically this is ONLY my SECOND TOUR APPEARANCE via Online play, the last player I played was WAY BACK in 2010 when I lost to Santiago92 at Sydney 1R, I lost like 1-6, then retired cauz the ping went up to 8000 ms after the first set. I think all of us here are pretty talented players of TE, but what separates us, I think, is our ability to anticipate shots and AS WELL AS know when to press a button to a certain extent -- because I one time only pressed left button for like one second, then I couldn't stop turning left afterwards and recover! -- it was super difficult to control my player under those conditions! But lets not dwell on the negatives, because I'm really excited that I had the privilege to play my second tour match in a while; and the first on grass on online tour!
I thought NOLE.LUCKY was for me first impressions, not a nice dude, but when I got to know him, hes actually a pretty nice and cool guy and he complements you and encourages you to do the best you can in chat when things aren't looking good.
Also, I'm not trying to blame my equipment -- eg. Slow Celeron D Acer Computer, and a 1GB download of internet with only 256 Kbps max speed. But he did say it was not me that's playing bad, it is the computers fault (or something like that) -- so that was nice of him to say. I wouldn't blame the internet speed because he played great under those 300 ms conditions, and the fact that we were both in those conditions. In the end I was outplayed and I think that with a bit more practice, I believe I can do a bit better. Thanks man! Real pleasure to play you, and good luck for the rest of the reason! Take home Newport man!
P.S Sorry about before about the MSN adding mishaps, we got off to the worst start possible. I definitely can't afford to be enemies with you.
Are you joking with me? Ok, nver mind, GL in future!
