Re: A tennis question........

i dont feel nervous anytime really, thats probably cause i dont care if i win or lose, not as if im being handed a big fat cheque for a million if i win.

Critical parts of matches affect us all differently. Some can deal with it, most can't. Good job anyway

Got to warm down after those matches.
It was a pretty fast indoor surface. We\'ve both got reasonably big serves but by the end we were serving like Dementieva, we had absolutely nothing left to give. I do play some guys that just switch ends without a break, but usually I take a short break whether they like it or not

The only warming down I did after the match was collapsing in a heap and not getting up for about 5 hours

Even Sampras got nervous when serving for matches, so it effects everyone differently. As I said it depends on the level and the attitude of the player, some can handle it and others don't.

I managed to get through the match on pure adreniline. We played almost 6 hours, final score was 6-7 6-3 5-7 7-6 11-9. It was the best match I\'ve ever played, it was at my club and by the end we had quite a lot of people watching I also don\'t find tennis as tiring as some other sports, you get a lot of short little breaks in between points and games, so you\'re not constantly running like some other sports. I certainly felt the effects of the match the morning after though, I couldn\'t move

Use this as your secret weapon. The one thing that nobody, except maybe aceit and I, knows.

And, seriously, how did you play that kind of a marathon match?

Re: A tennis question........

Wow, how'd you do in that match? I couldn't imagine playing best of 5!

I agree with you, unless it's a tiebreaker because then I'm tense and cannot help it.

A tennis question........

Having played a match recently which finished 11-9 in the 5th set with both of us blowing numerous match points I came to a conclusion, which seems to be against what most people believe....I play tennis quite competitively, and have realised that I am much more tense when I am match point down rather than match point up. Most players seem to choke when they have a match point, or serving for a match/title. I am completely the opposite, if I\'m serving for a match I am relaxed and play my normal game. If I\'m down match point or my opponent is serving for the match I tighten up, and instead of playing my normal game I focus solely on not making an error.

Anyone have any opinions on the matter, I can\'t really get my head round it
