Re: Yves's Match Record 2009: Tips, etc.? Share them!

This last match was in the competition. I was up 5-2 in the first, serving for the set. Then I completely lost it and lost 4 games in a row; 5-6. I managed to save a few set points and go into a TB. First I was 0-3 down, came back to 6-3, then lost 2 points before prevailing in an unbelievably long rally to clinch the set 7-6(5).
In the second set I found myself 0-2 down and broke back in a (+/-)15 minutes during game for 1-2, 2-2. Then I lost my serve again and was unable to breack back; 2-4. Then I got fired up, winning 6 games in a row (though I first wasted 4 MPs). The match lasted about 2 hours and 10 minutes.

Any tips to make this win easier?

In my last singles match I saved 1 MP. At 6-7 in the third set TB. I myself had 6 MPs before winning the match, the first one at 6-5 in the second set TB. In the third set TB I wasted a 6-2 lead. And I was 0-4 down in the third, 2-5 and then went through to 6-5 receiving. But I broke him again.

I mean your style, how you usually plays, maybe then we can have some conclusions of how you can improveing to finish the match.

I play quite defensive. I have a good forehand, and a solid backhand, but I can't really open the court with that shot. My volleys are reasonable, but I have to practice them more. My serve in solid (high first serve percentage), but not really fast.

My match went horribly, in the first set I had to recover three times from a break down. Yet, at 5-4 I served for the set (also at 6-5), but in neither occasions I could serve it out. A TB, well, let's not talk about that.
Set 2: I was broken in the first game, then held my serve, and then I lost my serve again. I found myself at 2-5* down, but from that moment on I started playing better. And I broke him twice and we were at 6-5*. I had a few set points, but I couldn't convert them. Yet in the TB I was superior.
Set 3: I went down 0-2, then I recovered to 4-2, but then I couldn't hold my serve and lost 4-6. BUMMMEEERRRRR

Still, my team and I are champions (we defeated the other team by 4-1)!!!!!!
