If you lose against a 48yr old woman, i think you should retire.

Perhaps I should retire then. I lose to 48+ year old women all the time. Of course, I'm 43 myself.

But seriously, I stopped considering the age (and apparent infirmity) of my opponents a long time ago. Never judge a book by its cover, I say. If they're still playing at that age, there's a reason why. Experience, especially at the club, makes up for a lot of stuff.

Yves...I wouldn't so much sweat these early season losses in TB. Some of it is mental conditioning. Just go ask James Blake about playing in a 5th set. I find Super TB especially difficult. It's a long way to "10" it seems.

Hang in there and keep it. BELIEVE you can prevail.

She plays a very high competition in England.

Thanks. In a few hours when I'm playing, I'll think about you.

Just kidding, Yves.

Don't worry, everyone gets tight in the deciding set. You just need to have a gameplan, stick to the gameplan and don't think about the score. Easy in theory; difficult in practice.

It's just funny, I respect you for admitting it though. She'd probably school me too if she's as good as you say!

You bounced back well in the second set after losing that first set heavily, sounds like you had her tiring - then you went and lost the tie-break, what happened??? Fit 16 year old lad, you should be giving the old players the run around when the match gets extended.

Advices: 1)Super-tiebreak is joke, play real third set.
2) Improve your serve and try to hold it during the match.

She was better at the dicisive points.

On both occasions we didn't have time to play a full third set.
My serve is too inconsistent, it can be very good though.

If you can develop a solid serve, the rest of your game will improve. By holding serve easier, it takes less pressure off your return games and allows you to play more loose.

At least for me.

So true...

One of these days I was playing a STB with my coach and I wasn't keeping score after I fell 1-5 down. Not caring about the score made me play much better - suddenly I was winning 4 points in a row. Then I made the fatal mistake -asked the score - I was serving twice 8-9. Of course I lost the point...
