Yeah, I think it is even though I'm pretty much handing my ass to Richou and Stajus to get spanked on with blithe insults about this post.
Anyways I'm just really happy and if your reading this, sorry 'Nadal Your Master', my PPP light went off when I was chatting with u after the match and I couldn't connect back, but finally back on -- rematch soon!
I really didn't expect to win though to be honest cauz I was a massive underdog.
-- Set 1: 7-5 LetsGoBro --
I got off to a really bad start, not getting my footwork in the right position which led me to create lots of silly groundstroke errors and not getting that return of serve correctly as my returns went neutral to the middle of the court, while my opponent was playing nice aggressive and pin point accuracy tennis, and showed why I was more inferior as I fell down *0-5 and deuce. After I held the game, I began to feel a little more comfortable, and I started hitting my spots while he started misfiring a few shots to hand me break back points, where I finally converted at the advantage/deuce game. My first comfortable hold in the match backed me to *3-5, but I was still a break down. I tried to fire myself up and step closer into the baseline and fire deep shots into the corners while mixing it up with some short ones, and tried my best to wrong-foot him wherever possible. The aggressive daring tactics materialized into success and he wasn't amused at all as he handed the 2nd break back and get back on serve at *4-5. I tried to mix up my serves, and eventually I held for 5-5*. From there I felt incredible, I played one of the best return games of my life to break again to unbelievably move ahead *6-5, eventually serving it out to 15 to bizarrely snatch the first set 7-5 from 0-5 down. I really did feel I played my best tennis in that set, while I also felt his level of confidence dipped as I eventually took 7 games in a row. I even shocked myself
-- Set 2: 7-5 LetsGoBro --
The second set was a more even affair. At the first game, I carried on my adrenaline at his opening service game but he eventually held at deuce. I began to feel more and more comfortable on serve, which clearly caused troubles to my frustrated opponent. From there I began to feel the pressure and my arms felt like jelly. I had break points at 1-1*, but with a few open areas to put the ball away, I unleashed some unusual errors and he eventually held the tough game. On serve I still felt comfortable and held with minimum fuss. At 2-2*, I had triple break points but again I didn't bode well under pressure, unable to reach balls which I could usually get to, and making some bad groundstroke errors out wide. He held again. At 4-4*, I had another break point, but I didn't take it. At *4-5 on serve I was getting frustrated but I eventually held to 30. At 5-5*, I had more break points which I didn't quite take, but he made some strange errors which eventually gifted me the break for *6-5 to serve it out. So from there, I would feel comfortable holding serve again right? Wrong. For the first time since the start of the match, I struggled to find my first serves and delivered a short second serve and a overly huge double fault to fall down *0-30. I found some first serves to get to *30-30, but a groundstroke error took me down *30-40. A tense rally with a forehand down the line brought it back to deuce, and after a fairly lengthy deuce I served out the 7-5, 7-5 win after he produced a forehand long on return.
I was just so satisfied after the win, I never felt so ridiculous in my life of playing this game, during the crunch stages of that 2nd set. Me??? CHOKING?? BAHAHAHA omfg. Got to be kidding me. But I'm just relieved more than anything and it's for sure a great win, but I'm feeling sorry for the guy now, cauz I don't think he deserved to blow out in that 1st set like that
